    just looking for some opinions have always shot muzzy four blade. Looking for at least 1 3/4 cut and as close to field point accuracy as possible. Main thing is dependable whats your pick

    Go to Amazon and buy a 12 pack of knock off hypodermic’s, practice with six and hunt with the others. Should be able to get two or three shots per plastic collar by spinning them slightly. but you could always order more collars. When you make that valuable shot you will be spot on because you practiced with your broadheads and didn’t break the bank.

    Take a sharpie and mark each arrow, you might find And arrow that doesn’t want to act like the others

    I have some of the Chinese knock offs and can not handle the loose rattling blades even after tightens on the shaft no matter what head I go with I will sacrifice a pack for practice

    Well if I had to pick something else I’d go with Nap. In fact camofire.com has been having some pretty decent deals on different Nap mechanicals lately. I shouldn’t care but I just cringe when I see my buddies walking out of the store with a $44 pack of broadheads like its gonna be the make or break for there deer season

    I shoot the Chinadermics. But if I didn't, it'd be grim reapers or nap killzone. No bands or collars to mess with

    Might’ve got a bad batch, when you have the collar in the right place and screw down I don’t have any rattling

    Dependability is why I don't shoot mechanicals.

    Me Also why I have been slow to switch but I believe now with the right broadhead matched with the right amount of energy they can be dependable

    Most are very dependable if you've got the energy to shove them through. Wasp jak hammers, grim reapers and rage have all worked well for me.

    I am shooting a Mathews vertix at 75 pounds with a 475 grain arrow hard to find a target it doesn’t blow thru after you shoot the same spot a few times

    Has anybody tried the dead meat broadheads? They tore some serious holes in all the deer Nick shot with us in 2017.
