More broadhead stuff !!!!!!!!!!! Updated
« on: February 25, 2006, 08:37:00 AM »
Here's the deal. I'd like to see each member list their bow weight, bow type (L or R),draw length.

Then I want you to list what you think are the five best broadheads. From favorite to least favorite.

Wanna see if there's a pattern.   :readit:      :thumbsup:

Recurve, 65#@28", maybe 62# at my 27" draw

Zwickey & Bear Razorhead, all I've ever used (ya, I know, variety is the spice of life)

Grizzly, have some, need to try them

Magnus, not tried one, but is there a bad one?

Wensel Woodsman, not tried one, but think I will

Did use a Snuffer one time and didn't get penetration I wanted, but could have been due to other variables. It did kill the deer though, so...

27" draw

160gr. Ribtek
160gr. grizzly
145gr. Magnus 2 blade
