I've shot the swept. I got 20" of penetration in the ground after passing thru both shoulders of one of our whitetails.Anybody shoot these? What’s your experience with them. Swept or full blade? Wanting to try some new heads this year
I’ve shot blk hornets and the stingers. Me personally I like the stingers way more,and produce better blood trails.Magnus Stinger 4 blade! Can’t beat their free replacement policy and customer service. I hear great things about their Black Hornet broad heads but have never used them.
Only thing I don’t shoot mechanicals in is recurve. A 2” or 2.25” well placed mechanical is as easy track job as it gets.I've shot the swept. I got 20" of penetration in the ground after passing thru both shoulders of one of our whitetails.
Y'all do you, but there ain't much reason to not shoot a big 2"+ mechanical at our little whitetail deer.
Ranch Fairy and Hunting Public be damned....
Poor shots aside, Do you stick to certain angles? I have heard the issue with most mechanicals being shots over 30 degrees causing poor blade deployment.The Exodus have great reviews, but I'm sticking with my chinadermics. I bought several dozen of them at around $1 each and toss them after each use. Knock on wood but I'm still at 100% recovery rate with them after 5 years of using them
Other than basic broadside and quartering away shots from a treestand about 24' up, I've taken one at an extreme angle shot when a buck was only 10 yards from me, so probably a 45-degree angle and slightly quartering to me. It was a complete pass-through from the top of the near lung to the exit at the bottom of the far lung, with a 50-yard recovery. All of the rest of the shots were between 12-35 yards from a treestand. I've not had any deflect or fail to deploy the blades. However, the blades are usually trashed after use. But at $1 each, I'm comfortable pitching them rather than messing with fixing them.Poor shots aside, Do you stick to certain angles?
