    I just got a handful for Bear Razorheads (the yellowish-green ones) and I’m excited to use them for next season but I noticed the bleeder blades are quite thin. For all of you who have used them for hunting what kind of durability should I expect out of the bleeder blades?

    Of course, bleeder blades add a little cutting surface length to a broadhead, but how much actual practical difference do you think that really makes in hunting , in comparison to the 2-blade version of the same broadhead (say, to pick one example, the 4-blade version and the 2-blade version of...

    I shoot 40# recurve for whitetails and typically use two blade heads. I just ordered some Dirtnap DRT HD heads which resemble silver flame heads with bleeder blades. Now I am thinking, "Will the bleeder blades hinder penetration?" Let me know what you think if the bleeder blades will hinder...

    Guess I haven't been here in awhile. I had shoulder rotator cuff surgery in June and just now starting to shoot a 40# bow and forging again. A few years ago I picked up two Damascus billets from the Alabama Damascus scrap pile at the BladeShow. I threw them in my throw away blade box and...

    I just sent an email to Ron to see if he had figured out a system to sharpen the Simmons Sharks.....was a problem before with what he had. He told me a long time ago they were working on one......they have it done now. Jer

    Hi. I shoot 50# recurve and my draw length is 26". I'm trying to pick the right broadhead. Should I get 2 blade, 3 blade or 4 blade? Thanks.

    I just got a bunch of old Bear greenie Razorheads- the main blade edges are rusty but I can take care of that with a mill file and whetstone. But how do you sharpen those little removable bleeder blades? thanks.

    Razorcaps, Montecs, Snuffer SS. I have used stones, a diamond "stone", sandpaper, leather. Not in that order per say, just thats what I've tried. Can I expect to actually shave hair, because it aint happening. Is it just too steep an angle or what? Points are needle sharp and take no effort to...

    Greetings all TTer's: Can someone give me some tips on mounting the bleeder blades into some Magnus I, 150-grain monsters? These heads are going onto some 11/32" wood shafts, gluing into the 5 degree taper. There are no "detent" grooves on the head itself to capture the bleeder blades, like...

    Just started using muzzy 100 gr, got sold on the idea of a great tip that punches thru target first, then cuts, they fly superbly from my LB, however I just found out the replacement blades are 2/3rds the cost of complete broadhead, not cost-effective to...

    Here's an idea. I wonder is muzzy practice blades would work on turkey. This would cut a big hole and probably retard penetration to keep the arrow in the bird. Any reactions? Seth

    Since we have the Sharpening article, was wondering if anyone might have a quick easy way to sharpen the 3 bladed Bodkins. I can get Snuffers very sharp with a file -- put them in a vise and run the file flat on 2 blades and rotate till all edges are sharp. I have tried Wensel Woodsmans and I...
