I remembered this post while shooting this weekend. I did ask some guys at the 3D shoot about them. I dont shoot these heads myself….but have been a little worried on the penetration side since the day I first saw them. So, from what I was told by people at the shoot….
Spinning them on the arrow was just like any other broadhead, until you had to tighten them on the shaft. It is very hard to get the heads tight on the shaft because there is no way to grab the things to get them in your had without cutting your fingers. So, using a pair of pliars might be the option here.
Fly like a Dart and hit dead on with field tips out to 100 yards.
Super quiet, not quite as quiet as a Shuttle T according to some…but very very quiet in flight.
I, again, worry about the penetration of this head. After talking with people a length aboout this it sounds like for the low energy bows this head won’t work very well (my opinion). In order to push this head through an animal you really have to have a high KE bow. That being said, I was told they completely destroyed a block target! All the way through the block target out to 50 yards I was told. And at 70 yards buried it to the fletching. It does eat up your target though…. so practice at your wallets own risk. Overall they were very pleased with the penetration.
Very accurate seems to be what all said about these heads. At a 100 yards even, a guy was telling me he would be within 6″ consistantly of the bullseye. Hell, thats awesome with any tip..even field tips in my book..lol! Overall, all were very pleased with the accuracy.
Anyway, hope this helps with your decision.
Let us know how they work out for you if you go their way.
Thanks for taking the time to ask around.I have watched some videos on them , but nothing like having some feedback from a consumers point a view versus faces just trying to push the product. Personally I’m not sure if I’ll try them or not been shooting G5′s for 4 seasons with success. They just kinda looked interesting and my nephew is planning on trying them so I was trying to get a little more info for him as well.Once again thank you for asking around,thats what’s great about this forum (family).
