    To be honest I have it down to three and am not sure which way to go:

    1. Iron will V100
    2. Steel forge saber tooth
    3. Magnus black hornet ser razor

    Torn between trying any of them. Don’t think you can go wrong with any of them. I want to try a more traditional two blade with bleeders like any of these. Why I don’t know.

    So the plywood left a blood trail? I have cut up more plywood than 99% of folks on scducks. I ain't seen a sheet bleed yet.

    No. That's why it's a POS for plywood hunting.

    If folks start hunting plywood I better invest in some serious locks.

    I got some 8/4 rift sawn oak here that will make all those BHs look like scrap metal.

    I picked up a couple packs of the regular black hornets and the ser razor to see how I like this style of head. They didnt take much time to tune out to 90 yards and hold an edge better than slick tricks and about the same as the qad exodus. I don't have anything bad to say about them but haven't had a chance to shoot an animal with them yet. Hopefully I'll get to test one out tomorrow.

    Killed a few with the swackers. All good pass throughs. But because of a bum shoulder, I am turning my bow back down to 55 pounds. Going back to the old Muzzy 100 grain 3 blades. They have not failed me in 30+ years.

    So its a Pos broadhead because it wouldnt kill a piece of plywood or because you shot them for a year and made a bad shot on a deer/animal and lost it and decided to blame it on the broadhead?

    And let me be clear that im no Rage homer. Have I killed deer with a Rage? Yep, but only 3, and all were ridiculously gorey. Two were double lung the other i caught the backside lung( quartering away). But that goes back to placement, which, if you put any broadhead on the market in the right place its gonna kill a deer 100% of the time. The last deer i killed with a bow was with a standard muzzy 3 blade 100 gr.

    I haven't encountered a problem that the solution to was "shoot mechanicals".

    Any issue I've ever had with arrow flight was a me problem or a tuning problem which again is a me problem.

    I shot one Rage prior to 2009. It was the old style and the penetration sucked with a 60 lb bow. The shot looked perfect so I must have hit a rib going in. That was enough experimenting for me. The newer(hypodermic) is a much better design but the size of the entry hole isn't important,..............the exit hole is.


    I shoot slick tricks. Everybody has their preference. Hell, they are even some folks on here that shoot Tiger Sharks :>)

    Do the new Slick tricks suck like everyone says?

    Quality went down when they were bought out a few years ago. I believe they've improved recently but I can't say for sure. I bought a pack of standards last year and they spun true, didn't rattle, flew with fp and were sharp. Killed two deer with zero issues. Made two holes both times and were stuck in the dirt with no damage to the head. As a disclaimer, my bow is tuned and I don't take poor shots which can easily be the reason for a few of the accolades above.

    I bought 125 mags at Cabelas in Greenville last season and they are the same as any I've ever bought, sharp blades, tight ferrules and spun true.

    This sticks out for some reason.

    I did not realize the Magnus have a lifetime warranty as well. I also have a 6 arrow quiver. If you want to know the truth. The iron wills are back ordered. The website says sept 1. However when I called they told me the it would be late September. That does me no good. I will get some for later on in the year but I’m not waiting till after the season start to get broadheads. So yes spending $100 on broadheads that won’t be here for the season opener does seem kinda counter intuitive. Had they had them I would have bought them no issue. They were my first call.

    I’ve bought two packs this year and they’re much better than those from 2-3yrs ago. The bas ones were packaged on cardboard in a flat manner. The cardboard was black. Stay away from those. To avoid any racist claims, I don’t think it was due to the black packaging. I’m sure accusations will still fly though.
    The new ones are in a box-style package and straight out of the box, they seem to be as sharp as the old ones and spin test well also. FWIW, these new box style packages have some black on them as well.
