Anyone here have any opinions on these broadheads, from what I have been told by some and have read these broadheads fly excellent and very good on game. For 25 plus years I've used Muzzy 3 Blades, but noticed in the last few years the quality isn't what it once more. With a new bow and set up, why not try new broadheads

I've never tried them but I have only heard good things from those that use them.

I use these and they work very well.  With my set up, they fly the same as field points and I have shot them to 70+ yards when preparing for an elk trip.  I have killed several deer with them and had great penetration with excellent blood.  I attribute the success that I have had with them because of their accuracy, sharpness and all of the practice that I put in with my bow.  All shots so far have been in the vitals with lots of blood (due to pass through) and short blood trails (often I watched the deer drop).  Shot placement is key no matter what broadhead you shoot.

 

I like the fact that they are solidly put together and have replacement blades available.  These heads are also easily sharpened.

Shoot them out of my crossbow.  Killed several deer, no issues and they do fly like my field points.  No adjustment between the two was necessary.  BTW - YYEEEAAAA BHC is back!

I dumped my Rages after losing a second deer and tried the Strikers. I have not hunted with them yet but I have been shooting for a few months now and for me they fly about 1/2" lower than my field points. I made my adjustment and they are flying fine. I usually shoot 40-30-20yd groups because of my yard size but I will take them out to 50 before the season just to see.They are sharp as hell right out of the pack and I did manage to get a small slice in my finger while unscrewing one out of an arrow that was in my block. My only concern is I can hear them in flight. Im not real worried , but I never heard my expandables. Overall I am happy with them and I dont have to worry about an expandable not opening anymore!

Just picked up some at Targeteers. Will try them in the upcoming season.

 

From the picture, it looks like you got the ones with replaceable blades. I got the fixed ones. Let us know how they work out.

Yesterday is history.

Tomorrow is a mystery.

But today is a gift.

That's why they call it the present.

I like them very much and get a way better blood trail vs the Montecs. More consistent for me over the Muzzy heads. Shooting a Switchback XT
