Joined: 7/5/2006They’re all good heads, I’ve personally shot the Magnus for years and loved them. However, I now choose the PhatHead… just a little heavier than the 100 gr.
Joined: 8/19/2004I’d go with either Magnus Stingers or Phatheads those C-o-C are good heads. I just switched to Magnus. Phat heads were on my list, but they weren’t listed in my dealer’s catalog.
I need to find a broadhead to use and to be able to trust but I am not sure?? I am dow to either getting the SteelForce PhatHead, MAgnus BUzzcut, Slick TRick Magnum or G5 MOntec CS???
Howdy Buck Buster,
Well what can I say this is a big question that will generate a lot of varied opinion. We need more information?? What are you going to be hunting?? What bow arrow combination are you hunting with?? I am a bit biased when it comes to arrow weight and broadheads. A medium to heavy arrow weight with a solid two blade broadhead.
Mate check this link out and read some of the studies. It will change your mind about your arrow broadhead combination.
Location: AlbertaI say the Phathead out of those…for most shooters…however my #1 would be the Montec on that list…but most dont know how to hand sharpen a head good enough in my books…
Joined: 5/16/2006Width of broadhead really doesn’t matter for blood trail IMO. I’ve shot deer with head widths from 7/8″ to 1.5″ and got both good and bad blood trails from both.
If the head is razor sharp and holds together you’ll cut enough stuff to put it down quickly – as long as it hits the vitals – regardless of broadhead used.
Also, I agree with Todd (Aussie) on heavy arrows and solid steel 2-blade heads for maximum penetration when the going gets tough.

you will get alot of answers on this…I’m partial to the Magnus line myself
but I honestly doubt any of the heads listed above will dissapoint you Peace
Okay Thanks…I am looking for one that will leave a decent blood trail…
The type of broadhead has less to do with blood trail than angle and shot placement do…
Not to mention what breaks loose internally and plugs a hole. But your point is on nonetheless. Case in point. I used to always try to shoot for a an exit through the far shoulder. (Whitetail. Not elk, hog, moose or the likes). Very lethal shot, through the heart or both lungs. So I usually found the carcass relatively close to where initially arrowed. But there was a very conspicuous LACK of blood. I’ve always been fond of shots low in the body. (Close to or through the heart). But quite often I found wound channels plugged with parts of one organ or another. Good blood trail starting off, then either dissipating or disappearing shortly after. I have experienced good blood trails, but could never equate it to the broadhead.
Aim for a heart shot and pass thru, low but just behind or above the elbow
with the animal broadside to you (it’s tough to get them to turn broadside
but it’s the best shot).
Depends upon that front leg position and body angle, and if your in a
tree or in a blind but is much more so than the style broadhead you use.
