Broadhead VS Bone

Postby superkodiak38 » Fri Sep 30, 2016 7:44 am

I have hunted with Woodsmans, Zwickey's and STOS. I tried to sharpen Snuffers once but that's another story ;)
I have shot deer with all of the above and had pass through on double lung shots. I have also had a high angle shot where a Woodsman made a left turn after hitting the off side shoulder blade and popped out through the brisket, small doe went completely though her ( it was cool ! )

I have decided to stay with a two blade heads and was really happy with the performance of the STOS I was going to order some broad heads when I got home and after talking to Marc I was thinking about trying a single bevel head. Anyhow, this is my STOS after shooting through part of one rib and breaking the offside leg below the shoulder blade. Now I normally tanto these and for whatever reason I had not done that to these, whether that would have lessened the tip curls ( I think it would) I can't be sure. It did completely break the leg, I know the head is a mess, it got put up wet and I just pulled it out for the pictures. Anybody who shoots single bevel have a suggestion in the 125-150 grain range ? Thanks !

Tim I was impressed with the new Grizzly's and they have a wide range of weights. Are you looking for 125-150 with adaptor?

A local Aussie bloke is making nice heads , I used his single bevel 135gn screw ins in New Zealand last month.
They sure did the work on a couple of pigs , a few turkeys and a large bodied wild goat . Nothing too large but they worked really well with some pretty impressive would channels . Like you, I can't sharpen a Snuffer to save myself , and could never get Grizzly's as sharp as I wanted ( that was 12 years ago) ... but these Northerns worked really well. They ain't one piece so not sure how they'll hold up on big bones , but they decimated the spine of a 50lb hog...and I mean decimated .
( disclaimer - I've also done the same with cheap Ribtek's )

They are pretty cheap too .

I shot Zwickey Delta's for years. I always chiseled the tips as I was convinced that would help tip curl. As the years passed and I had to reduce bow weight, I figured I needed a smaller broadhead to help with penetration. First the Eskimo, then, I went to the Grizzly. So far the Grizzly has shot threw everything from moose to pigs. I'm really pleased with them.
