    Just bought a package of six muzzy broad heads. 125 grain last night at my local pro shop. herd nothing but good comments about them so i thought i would give them a try . three blade 6 pack with a set of practice blades . well i got home last night and opened them up to inspect them . what i found was troubling . the practice blades were not all the same. two were  longer than the third .put one of  them together and the third blade was shorter in the Ferrell. took it apart and weighed them on my digital scale the two longer blades weighed 16 grains and the third weighed 12 grains. so put it back together again  and it weighed 118 grains not 125 grains . so i decided to put them all together with the hunting blades [sharp]. weighed them all individually 5 weighed 126 grains and one weighed 124 grains . not a big deal file some of the heaver ones to make weigh 125 on the threaded end of the Ferrell  and wrap some dental floss to the lighter one to make heavier. but i wanted to know about the practice blades . so i emailed the company at tech support through my wife’s email with my work e mail and no reply got home and web sight says they close at 5:00 pm called at 10 to 5 pm and voice mail said no in box for this extension # but i entered no extension# will try to call earlier to morrow none of this is a big deal.          but what you pay for should be what you get.     oh the pro shop only had this one package or i would of exchanged them . bought a dozen of gold tip arrows and three were of a different spine weight and they made it right plus gave me the three arrows that were wrong in the dozen  even though i had all ready cut them they stood behind their product i hope muzzy does the same….

    Muzzy broadheads generally don’t have a great reputation. They fly ok out of a somewhat tuned bow, but if your looking for things like quality and consistency, you’ll have to look at other companies.

    …i hope muzzy does the same….

    It sounds like Muzzy only owes you one practice blade.

    …voice mail said no in box for this extension # but i entered no extension# …

    According to Muzzy’s website, you must dial an extension number to get technical support.

    Technical Support 770-387-9300 ext 311

    I have shot them for year’s never had any issues, have you used them? are you just bashing?

    No bashing here. I’ve used them and their quality has always been subpar. My biggest issue with them was flight characteristics. Each seemed to fly differently. There wasn’t a lot of consistency.

    Hmmmm – didn’t know Muzzy was sold. Friend of mine shot a deer through the head a couple of years ago with a Muzzy 125 gr. Broadhead made it through without issue other than blades were less than shaving sharp. I was surprised the head was still in one piece without broken blades.

    Not sure where he was aiming – doubt it was the head LOL.

    I’ve used them since 88 and never had a problem getting them to group.

    Muzzy was bought out over a year ago, it is now a division of Feradyne, Muzzy Outdoors, LLC. As long as Feradyne doesn’t morph Muzzy into Rage, I don’t see any real change in the future. One thing Muzzy needs to do is have a line of 100% steel broadheads with much thicker blades, like most other competitors, to withstand the high-KE (80-100 ft-lbs) generated by modern bows. Otherwise, they aligned well and flew well.

    Muzzy broadheads are the Ted Nugent “Spirit of the Wild” official broadhead for 2013 … but Uncle Ted only shoots about 50-55 lbs out of a Mathews Creed, which is about 65 KE…plenty to kill and grill any critter on the ranch.
