    Anybody have any experience with Solid Broadheads?  They look a little pricey but also look very well made!  Just curious before I plunk down the $70 and change to try a pack….

    They do look like a deluxe head, with a price to go with it! Don’t have any experience and haven’t seen them first hand. Go ahead, jump in with both feet!!!!

    Is this the broadhead? If it is, it looks and reads like a the last broadhead you’ll ever own.

    Sort of reminds me of the German Kinetics heads with a bleeder edge added. I’d enjoy seeing a review on them. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    Yep… That’s them.  I guess I will jump in with both feet.  I will order a couple packs of the 100 grains this weekend.  I’ll give you all a review when I get them!

    If the old adage, “you get what you pay for” hold true,  you should be getting some mean broadheads.  Cutting diameter looks awesome.  They may be in my future as I’m looking to switch to a fixed head.  If they do well, I can see Rage and others doubling their prices because the market will bear it.  Let us know what you find.

    I do like the look and if the fly as good as they say it will be a tuff head to beat.  Interested in your review for sure…

    I see made in US…  {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    Unless you need the Deep Six, before you jump in, you might want to check out the SteelForce 125-gr Phathead Titanium or 145-gr SS Phatheads, both have steel ferrules and the main blades are thicker, at 1/2 the price of the Solid.

    The SteelForce do fly nice and they are scary sharp.

    FWIW, I shoot 210-gr German Kenetics for my Trad Setup, and although the Solids are similar, they are not the same. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_peace}

    The 210-gr GK are amazing …  amazing blood trail, total distance 30 yds  … incredible performance for a low-KE setup

    Thanks gjarcher.  Great suggestions.  These heads all go against my current setup which is a super short fixed blade.  I primarily shoot slick tricks and QAD exodus.  Have had great luck with both.  I shoot a fairly lightweight set up and these work well.

    The Solids just caught my eye and it’s an itch I need to scratch.  They should be here on Thursday!  I had never really considered a primarily two blade broadhead and am kind of excited by the design.  I really didn’t realize there were so many similiar designs to the Solids.  You have given me a lot more itches I will have to scratch!

    Well, I scratched that itch.  These heads are as advertised as far as sharpness goes, they are scary sharp out of the box.  They are really built well.  I took two, out of the box and put them on Gold Tip Pro Hunter 5575s.  I shoot a 29″ 60 lb Creed at 58 pounds.

    the broadheads spun perfect on the first arrows I put them on.  I typically shoot Slick Trick standards and QAD Exodus.  My bow is tuned so both of those broadheads hit with my field points at 40 yards ( at least as good as I can shoot :) )

    one of the Solids shot in the group with everything else and I was very pleased.  However, the other Solid shot about 8 inches low right at 30 yards and about 10 inches low right at 40 yards.  Unusual for me, the out broadhead shot it’s own group even on two different shafts.  Usually when I get a fixed head that won’t group it is wild, not consistent.

    another disappointment to me is that the heads require a special Torx driver to take them apart and they do not come with the driver.  I have two sets of Torx drivers and neither set has a driver this small.  So, after $79 for three broadheads I would also have to buy a driver to take them apart to sharpen them…hmmmm.

    i haven’t shot the third head or even spun it yet….I will probably do that this weekend.  I will see how it shoots.  If it shoots well I will give that out head some more attention, if not I will consider this a bust.

    forgot to mention these are all 100 grain points and I shoot Blazer fletching.

    I was curious about such large vents in the Solid blades making noise in flight, common for vented blades. Could you comment on that issue after doing your testing?

    I will certainly try.  Unfortunately I am almost deaf as a post (or so my wife and daughters tell me).  I did not notice the solids making any more noise than any of the other heads I shoot.  I will try to get a friend around the next time I shoot them to give you an honest opinion.

    i must also also say that even if these don’t turn out to be the heads for me I do like the idea of the design.  Thanks GJArcher for pointing out that there are alternatives of this design and I am going to make researching these types of heads my summer project.  Everybody needs a summer archery project right??

    I looked at the German Kenetics but decided to give the Magnus Buzzcut Singers and Slick Trick Razor Trick a try. Arrow flight was excellent with both. My hunting rig shoots a 396 grn arrow @ 307 fps. I was concerned about the Magnus a higher speeds but it grouped right with the Razor Tricks, both shot right with my field points. Both were incredibly sharp out the pack and performed perfectly on wild hogs. Magnus guarantees  their heads for life at less than half the price of the Solids or Kenetics, making it hard for me to justify these heads.
