    I hunt with 43-46# bows and always end up with an arrow weight of about 9.5 gpp. I am always in the 405-420 range. Currently I am shooting 43# and 405 grains. I have no issue with penetration using a two blade head I just would like a little more blood trail. I limit my shots and only take...

    I bought it from Innovative Outdoorsman. Used it once on one blade. It works, but it's not for me. Plus I'm switching to a 3-blade broadhead and this won't work for that. Comes with wet/dry sand paper pack of 5 different grit sandpaper. I used one piece of the pack. List price is $29.50 for...

    Seen a few videos of this being used and it looks like a great tool for sharpening both fixed blade and replaceables. 1. Anybody used one? 2. Don't seem to be for sale anywhere, are they discontinued? 3. If you use something else, please advise what you like the best. Thanks!

    This is my second year with a recurve and I'd like to change broadheads. I used the stinger broadheads last year but I'm unhappy with the durability. It's very rocky where I hunt, almost a guarantee I'll hit one. Can anyone suggest a single bevel fixed blade broadhead around 175 gr that could...

    Because broadhead tipped arrows have a bigger cross-section than field point tipped arrows, I'm guessing that broadheads drift a bit more in a cross wind than field points. Any thoughts? Has anybody tested this?

    Brothers in arms, need your advice. In the process of tuning my HEX8’s for hunting, I’m having some issues. As you can see from the bareshaft/fletched with pink 4x3’ from 18meters, they fly like I want them to. The bareshaft slightly weak and nock high. With either broadhead and 4x4’ feathers, I...

    I recently bought some Muzzy replaceable blade broadheads. In the package was one set of these "blades" and the expected amount of normal blades. The diamond shaped "blades" aren't sharp but weigh the same as the real blades. I couldn't find any thing on the packaging saying what they are for...

    Hey all, I’m off to Montana this year for elk and mule deer. Plan on taking my Covert Hunter at 50# with 575gr arrows. I shoot 125gr fieldpoints with 75gr brass inserts in a FMJ arrow. Which broadhead do you recommend please?

    How important is it two align the Broadhead (grizzly single bevel) to the feather fletching? I’m shooting Easton legacy’s and when the Broadheads are fully screwed in they vary on which way they align how much will this affect flight and what would be a good or easy fix to adjust the Broadhead...

    So I cannot get my Broadheads sharp for the life of me. I have tried a few different techniques. Most recently a think you clamp your knife/Broadhead in that comes with 4 stones. Basically it has guides to help get the perfect angle. The stones have a rod that slides into a hole to guide it at...

    Going to buy a target to shoot broadheads at. Anyone have any recommendations of ones that are a good bang for the buck? Or let me know ones to stay clear of. Just looking for something simple I can move around and be sure my arrows fly straight. There are so many on the market...

    So I had my friend Cody sharpen up some Zwickeys he graciously purchased and sent my way. These are the glue on models, and what real trad men shoot on wood arrows. These arrived in a manly package secure, so no postmen or women would be harmed by simply looking at, or handling the package. I'll...

    Prior to season I asked how everyone treats heads to preserve the edge. Joe P suggested Sentry TUF-GLIDE. I have hunted with the double bevel Grizzly heads treated with Sentry this season. I've hunted in rain, hot and cold temps. I have pulled and reloaded the same arrow many times. The...

    New archer. Had a slight quartering away shot. Almost broadside. Magnus head blew through I️ shot kind of high and forward thought I’d hit lungs or vertebra. Rifle shot there would be dead meat. Blood on arrow but none on ground nor in CRP and tracking dogs lost it. I️ looked for blood found...

    Can you help with the answer to this question? Once we settle on a desired broadhead weight, is there any advantage in buying a lighter version of that broadhead and making the desired weight by adding a heavy adapter, compared with just buying a version of that broadhead in the desired...

    So I want to choose a broadhead to hunt with. How do you find a broadhead that will fly well without buying a bunch of different ones? Any recommendations for 100 grain broadheads shooting a 45 lb. recurve?
