    I started using these broad head on turkeys a few years ago and they did great. I killed my biggest one yet 1 1/2 spears. So I shot them this year at my buck the only reason I did not get a pass thought was I hit the leg bone. The deer only went 70 yards and died. I really like the 1 3/8 in cut.

    I’ve used both in practice but never shot an animal with them. I found that the larger cut head had more of a hiss sound in flight than the smaller. That’s really the only difference I found in them. Of course you’d get a bit more cut on game, but I doubt it would make a difference in the length of a track. Too many variables to know for sure, but I really wonder if larger cut heads are really that beneficial in reality. I doubt it. :-B

    I voted for the 1-3/8″ just for the noise difference… I now use G5 Strikers. Got tired of the Reapers falling apart after 3-5 hits on a foam target.

    dark side- justwhat is it that “falls apart” on grim reaper heads. i’ve killed several deer ,woodchucks and coyotes and shot into foam targets for years and have never seen one come apart. must be tough foam!

    What fell apart on them? I’ve shot one head over 100 times into a 18-1 with not so much as a dull blade….
