What Is The Best Broadhead For Big Game?

Posted by Darrell under: Gear - Tips, Reviews, Wishlist .

alpha_review.png 

Most hunters, like me, have used dozens of different broadhead over the years. We are all in search for that perfect broadhead. I basically want them to do three things:

          1) Fly True. I want them to fly the same as my matching weight field tips.

          2) Kill. Open up a big hole and cut through the vitals.

          3) Hold Up Well. If I hit bone, I want the arrow to keep on moving. I don’t want my broadhead shattering.

This all seems basic enough. But it isn’t. Very few of the broadheads I’ve used will actually fly true. For some reason it always seems that the mechanicals do best in this department. Yet, I personally hate using mechanicals. Mainly for reason 3. I don’t trust them to shatter bone (not that I’m aiming at bone) and I’m always scared that they won’t open up properly.

So, that leaves me with the old fixed blade broadheads. I’ve shot dozens of different ones and the best I’ve found is the…

MONTEC G5

Hunting_Equipment_052607_76.JPG

The Montec G5 broadheads rock. They fly just like my field points and you can buy practice tips for them. The practice tips have same weight and shape as the actual broadhead, except they hold up after 1000s of shots (I know this for certain) and they aren’t sharp like the real deal. I highly recommend getting and shooting the practice points. They are well worth the $23 for a box of 3.

I’ve killed deer with the G5. They work. I’ve hit bone. They still work. The best testament to the ability of the G5 was my Spring Alaska Bear hunt. I killed a record book bear with the G5.

Before the trip I was told not to take a bow at all. You just can’t guarantee a kill on a bear I was repeatedly told. Bears are just too tough. Hogwash! Although, my outfitter did tell me he wouldn’t allow me to hunt with mechanicals.

Anyway, I shot my bear at 45 yards with the G5. (1) The arrow flew perfectly. It went in behind the front shoulder and embedded (deeply) in the opposite shoulder. (2) The hole was huge. I could see blood pumping out as the bear loped away. It made it less than 50 yards and fell over dead. (3) The arrow broke in two. The G5 is in perfect shape. I could re-use it if I was so inclined. Take a look at the picture and see for yourself.

These are available at many sporting goods stores. If they don’t have them near you try Ebay. I found them on Ebay for as little as $22, which is about $10 cheaper than anywhere else. Here is the link to find them on Ebay: Montec G5 on Ebay

Let me know how you like them!

Nice review. I’ve never tried these broadheads. When you say they fly just like your field points, do you mean that if you site-in with a field point, you don’t have to make any adjustments with the broadheads?

I’m the kind of guy that tends to stick with something that has worked in the past, so I’ve only ever used 3 types of broadheads. This year was my first year using mechanicals, and I must say that they seem to have come a long way since they first were on the market.

Arthur Says:

I’m a mechanical guy as well, but these Montec’s do look pretty cool and to be able to take down a bear and keep chugging that is awesome.

I’m trying the rage broadheads this year and hopefully I get to use them and right a review.

Matt Says:

Good post. I may give them a try.

Darrell Says:

17 October 2007 at 2:39 pm.

bryan, i mean that i can sight in and practice with a field point and the broadhead hits dead on where my field point hits.

arthur, I’d love to hear how you like the rage

Matt, they are definitely worth giving a try

I just took a doe with the Montec G5 and it didn’t run at all. These things are incredible broadheads.

Kaleb Says:

Man i bought these broadheads because i wanted the rock solid design they have i like everything about them but i just cant get them sharp ive sharpened them for hours and have counted 50 strokes on each blade and still they wont hardly cut paper how did you get yours sharp enough to take a bear???

Darrell Says:

1 March 2008 at 12:49 pm.

kaleb, sounds like you bought the practice points. They can’t be sharpened. The actual broadheads are razor sharp out of the package out didn’t require any sharpening.

Kaleb Says:

1 March 2008 at 4:32 pm.

the practice heads are black arent they im pretty sure myn are the hunting heads but they sure didnt seem sharp to me but i am used to extremely sharp skinning knives though but thank you any way

Rocky Says:

It’s all in the tuning of your bow. Some broadheads will fly true to field points with many hunters, but the same broadhead may not fly true with others. Thunderheads flew great with my previous bow (High country Supreme Extreme), but noth with my new bow (Diamond TecHunter Elite). The “true flight” broadhead for me now is the Magnus Stinger 4 blade 85 grain. Lots of great reviews about Magnus, and they were pinpoint for me. But remember, they may not work for you. If you know other archery guys, try out some of their used broadheads. It’s a cheaper way to eliminate a brand that may not fly true for you.

I shot three deer with my Montec G5 and all three were lung shot but I hardly had a blood trail with any of them. I went with the Rage two blades and the deer started falling within sight. I have never seen a blood trail like the rage leave. It is almost like shooting them with my shotgun. I am headed out west to hunt elk this fall and I am taking my rage.

You killed a bear? What kind of sicko are you!

Darrell Says:

My dear guest, I not only killed a bear, I ate it too. I’m THAT kind of sicko.

Sean Says:

26 May 2008 at 12:16 am.

Nice. I am bowhunting this year (for the first time . . . I usually rifle-hunt) and choosing a good broadhead was the last decision I needed to make to complete my kit. I’ll go with the G5. By the way, I am also a sicko who kills AND eats deer too. Aren’t we disgusting?! I am looking forward to being a sicko this season as well! ;)

Walt Says:

2 June 2008 at 5:08 pm.

I have to agree…. Just got back from a Black bear hunt in Saskatchewan and the 100 grain G5 blew right through my 300 pound bear. The shot was at 12 yards and even buried into the ground. I only wish that the cutting diameter was a little larger, however it’s hard to complain since I was able to harvest a great bear.

Buck Says:

23 June 2008 at 9:06 am.

Last year on thanksgiving i shot a 140 class buck and the G5 100 grain blew right threw the deer. I had an enormous blood trail and found my buck 60 yards from where i hit it. I’m sold

I recently shot a wildebeest bull(i’m south african) on my game farm with a NAP Razorbak and it flew straight through from 40 yards(a wildebeest skin is 1cm thick) these broadheads are awesome compared to muzzy’s and thunderheads….but i’m keen to try the G5 montec. I’ll keep you in touch on how they perform on the tough African game.

Sean Says:

18 July 2008 at 12:04 pm.

I, too, will report on how they do . . . I went with the 10-grain G5 Montecs. I also got my whole kit:

2008 Hoyt Katera (29″ and 60#)
Hoyt Duralite Quiver
Fuse Carbon ConneXion Hunter 6.5″ Stabilizer
Fuse Buckhorn 5-pin Sight
Fuse Whisker Biscuit Arrow Rest
T.R.U. Ball Copperhead Release
Easton ST Epic Arrows (340 spine and 29″)
G5 Montec Broadheads (100-grain)

TTUDOC Says:

31 July 2008 at 9:07 am.

G5’s are great, I’ve tried numerous broadheads from Muzzy, Thunderheads, Crimson Talon, Slick Tricks…. I’ve been able to get a humane kill on a dozen or so South Texas deer with all of the aforementioned broadheads, however the only broadhead that truly groups consistently with my field points is the Montecs. NOTE: The crimson talon is vey accurate as well but the blades tend to flatten out if they contact bone.
In my opinion, you should experiment with your set-up and find the broadhead that works for you…. remember, its all about shot placement

guest Says:

14 August 2008 at 7:36 pm.

Thunder Head 100s are the best

xstreamjf Says:

4 September 2008 at 11:50 am.

I too have shot many broadheads over the years. I started with the old Bear Razor heads then the SST Bear Razor head, then the orange colored Satellite head. Then the NAP Razorback 5, onto Thunderhead 100’s then on to Muzzy 3 blade 100. Each time I changed it was becasue of something I got tired of with each head. With the aforementioned heads I harvested whitetail, elk and mule deer totaling 64 animals harvested. My latest failure was with Muzzy after shooting 20+ animals with them. I ran into quality issues where the componants did not go together properly causing allignment failure.

My next victim will be the Montec g5. As a toolmaker and tool designer, I like the strength and simplicity of the design. I can handle the sharpening in exchange for consistancy in performance.

paul Says:

12 September 2008 at 3:00 pm.

i really like the idea of the g5 montecs(solid steel construction) but im gonna try the newer g5 strikers this year ive heard about some sharpness issues with the montecs and no problems with the striker but by all means if anybody has some better advice for me let me know id be glad to hear it and ps im a SICKO to !!!!!!!!!!

Gulam Says:

22 September 2008 at 8:29 pm.

A few days ago I came across an article wherein a South African was discussing the merits of a solid, zero plane broadhead. The claim was the broadheads flew much like the field points shot from any bow and cut a large blood channel and were mostly oblivious to bone. I cannot find that article anymore. Has anyone else come across a similar claim or know which broadheads were being described? What might be a North American equivalent - the Montec G5?

Darrell Says:

I’VE SHOT 4 DEER WITH G5 BROADHEADS I’VE KILLED AND RETREAVED ALL 4 I SHOT A BOW TECH ALLEGENCE WITH 60LB DRAW AND 270FPS. ALL THE POWER I NEED. NONE OF THESE DEER KILLED HAD PASS THROUGHS ONLY 1 HAD A BLOOD TRAIL. SO IF YOU PLAN ON USING G5 BROADHEADS YOU MIGHT NEED TO POLISH UP YOUR TRACKING SKILLS YOU’LL NEED THEM!

Keith Says:

22 October 2008 at 1:26 pm.

The reason they appear not to be sharp is the angle that they are sharpened on. The fact though that the blood trail may be suspect kind od puts me off them. I have purchased 6 but now i am not so sure. The Rage cuts like all get out, but they dont seem to want to stay closed. Even in the quiver they come open. And if you shoot one with the blades flopping hang on they go everywere.

matt Says:

28 October 2008 at 10:31 am.

I have shot the g5 andd they are a great broadhead… but as for the rage i wouldn’t trust them if i were you i have shot them twice a doe and a small 8 point and they didnt open either time “basically shooting them with a field point” lets just say if you want to keep hunting all year and never fill a tag use the rage, but if you want to bring home trophys use the g5 or muzzy mx-3’s they have both worked well for me

Lee Says:

5 November 2008 at 10:06 am.

I’ve been searching for a quality broadhead for quite some time. My search has taken me from hypershock 125 gr. to 100 gr. thunderheads, etc. I was just wondering what you have found as you have experimented with all kinds of different heads? Has anyone tried the Grim Reaper’s? They seem pretty legit.

JEFF Says:

13 November 2008 at 10:28 am.

The G5 is the best broadhead I have ever used. I have never seen such a large entry and exit hole. I have taken 5 deer this season 2 were high lung shots and the trail of blood was incredible. No deer has run more than 50 yards.

Darrell Says:

13 November 2008 at 1:49 pm.

jeff, 5 deer this season? that rocks! I obviously love the G5, but it is only as good as the person shooting it. You obviously don’t have any trouble shooting it!

James Says:

14 November 2008 at 8:38 pm.

The G5 is absolutely the most awesome broadhead I have ever used. I have been bow hunting for 23 year, and have never found a truer flying, sharper cutting and strong broadhead. I harvested two whitetails last year and one the year before, using the G5. I have yet to have a deer struck with the G5 montec go further than 40 yards. And the corpulant blood loss is great…no problem with trailing. I am a montec G5 user for life. I finally found the one. happy hunting.

Joey Says:

24 November 2008 at 5:39 pm.

I have thought about trying the G5 but it’s hard to change from the tried and true Thunderhead 100. With 4 whitetail kills in 2 years with the Hoyt and the farthest i have had to track is 45 yds.

jim henrichsen Says:

6 December 2008 at 4:30 pm.

The montec’s fly great. The work great if you don’t hit bone. We lost both a deer and a bear when we hit bone. Going to try Nugents broadheads. Don’t like losing stuff.

Rick Says:

15 January 2009 at 2:15 pm.

G-5 Stryker Magnums 125 grain, 1 1/2″ cutting diameter, Absolutely the most devastating broadhead out there! I shot the montec before I switched to the stryker. Montec is the best behind the stryker magnum.

Phil Says:

22 January 2009 at 11:26 am.

I am telling you now these are the best broadhead out there! I have been bow hunting for 20yrs and in that time I have never and I mean never seen a broadhead that gets the penetration these broadhead get. Example My son begged me to let him bow hunt this year. I was very confident in his shooting ability jsut was’nt sure about his nerves. I put him in a stand told him to only shoot a doe till I knew what he and his bow would do. My son had a doe walk to his stand. she stopped when he drew his bow. The doe was facing nearly striaght on. His arm was starting to get tired so he decided to take the shot. The arrow enteredright behide the shoulder and exited right in front of the rear hip. Complete past through. I don’t encourage this shot and my son got a good talking to. However he only pulls 35 lbs and got a full past through, I was amazed. Take that for what it is worth. These thing blow through shoulders ribs. I shot an Elk broadside, pass through. These are amazing broadheads. I will say I had to sight in with them, they were off by just a little. Some may not have worried about the slight difference but i did.

magarats Says:

12 February 2009 at 8:48 pm.

there is no way to get a fixed broadhead to fly the same as a field tip. If you are at an indoor range you may get it close, but the problem with the fixed heads is the different drift you get in a cross wind. I use fixed broadheads, but I have one set aside and marked black with a magic marker for target use. There is no need to target practice again and again with a broadhead. You will just tear up your target. Once you get the vertical adjustment for the broadhead you just need to know how much more you need to adjust for wind with a broadhead. Then you can go back to every day practice with a field tip. The 100 gr thunderheads hold up pretty well. I have not hit bone with them but I shot through a phone book 3 times in a row and the only change was that the blades were dull.

magarats Says:

12 February 2009 at 8:56 pm.

you want a pass through put baby lube on your arrows and veins, just kidding but it is true. I had a fairly new foam target and my wife asked me if I would shoot an apple. I put an apple on a shoe box in front of the foam target. I did it and the apple fell. I thought wow how did I miss that, but the apple had a hole right in the middle. The arrow was gone, because the juice from the apple lubed the arrow and it sliped right through the foam block. The moral of the story is if you shoot an animal in the rain you are more likely to get more penetration. The contact with the arrow “especially the veins” on the outside of the animal is a great force in slowing the arrow “friction” dry carbon fiber and plastic. Wet an arrow especially the vein and see how much better it slides through your fingers.

magarats Says:

12 February 2009 at 8:57 pm.

baby lube the problem with proof reading after I was thinking do we use baby oil or ky lube. you get the point

I like the montec, I think they are a very good product. I also really like the Slick Trick and GrizzlyTrick. Very accurate tru flying, replaceable blades, and with four blades, they leave a huge hole and tracking is like following a red line. We shoot Hawaiian Hogs on oahu, and the slick tricks and rule for devestation and blood trail hands down due to the 4 blades.

ramsey Says:

23 February 2009 at 2:35 pm.

if u really like the g5 but like mech try the g5 tekens.I shot a deer this year with one and it dropped were it stood never in a million years did i think that could be done. g5 makes a rock solid broasdhead

Janus( south africa ) Says:

9 September 2009 at 6:55 am.

I hunt every year shot a few animals in my bowhunting career tried plenty broadheads mechanicals and fixed blades i completely agree Montec is the best shot buffalo last year through rib only one blade broke off buffalo expired after 55 yards the guys that dissagree come hunt in south africa thick skin and hard ribbone buffalos then we talk again congratulations Montec 125gr they are the best.

kenny Says:

20 September 2009 at 7:44 pm.

really nice review on these. i just started using the muzzy phantom’s and i gotta say im really impressed with them. i havent got to shoot any deer yet but i shot some groundhogs with them and only one got back in the hole. went straight threw him though. but im going to have to give these g5’s a try it they had no problems after shooting a bear

jeff Says:

16 October 2009 at 8:01 pm.

I just bought some montecs a couple of months ago. I love how the fly in backyard, and they are in my opinon as close to field points as i have seen. I am glad to read the good stories about the pass throughs and bloodtrails. I agree i wish the diameter was bigger, but they are without a doubt the sharpest out of the box b’heads i have used.

Matt Says:

2 November 2009 at 7:28 pm.

Well I’ve been hunting a while with these things I got to use them a little before they came out I work with diamond archery and theve never failed me yet

Mike Says:

11 November 2009 at 10:13 pm.

I shot a 8 point and a 10 point with the G5s this year. The 8 point was a good hit and passed though. However, the blood trail was not that big. I followed it for 200 yards and could not find the deer.

The 10 point looked like an o.k. hit. It was a quartering shot from a tree stand at about 15 yards. It The arrow did not pass through. I think it hit the far shoulder. The deer ran about 50 yards and laid down. He got up about 3 times in 2.5 hours. After 2.5 hours, he stood and slowly walked off. I could not get a shot because of the thick cover. Anyway, after a half hour, I went to where he laid and there was hardly any blood. Very disappointing.

I guess any arrow is good, including a field tip, if you hit the deer right. I just couldn’t believe how small the blood trail was on the first deer and the especially the second one.

Either way, it’s very frustrating/disappointing to shoot a deer and not recover them.

6 December 2009 at 4:58 pm.

i have shot montec for three years they are not bad but i have had the tip of them break off and bend i just went to the rage 2 blade even though im not a fan of mechanicals but these things are for real the blood trail was amazing they sold me

jay Says:

15 December 2009 at 8:47 pm.

check out wasp broadheads there the best on the market and fly straight.ive harvested alot of whitetails in the past years and all of them fell dead within 40 yards….given that it was a good shot.

Dwayne Says:

4 February 2010 at 9:43 am.

These babys are awsome. I’ve shot 6 deer with them, all were recovered with good blood trails. Some shots were a bit back, others were perfect and others were through both shoulders. All pass throughs. Allthough they are not sharp, you don’t need sharp broadheads to kill as long as your shooting fast enough, ex. Fishing line, round and wide, pull on it hard enough it will cut to the bone, same with fast flying broadheads. I would shoot a few to check my mark into the target, then use them on deer without sharpening, no problem.

Lyle Says:

14 March 2010 at 12:18 pm.

Has any one used the G5 Montec 100 gr. for moose. Also is it a one piece broadhead??
I am going moose hunting and these animals are large. I have harvested a few with the rifle but this will be the first archery hunt. Can anyone help??………Thanks Lyle

I will get the montec 100gr and the stryker mags and give both a shot.
i am done with my rage 2 blades. i hit 2 deer in illinois last year and lost both.
first buck mid 140s hit just off front shoulder and arrow went about 2 inches into the deer.
very little blood did not recover the animal.(it made me sick)
second buck on last day of my hunt a solid 140 again. quartering away layed first pin just in front of back ham and let her go. i hit the ribs at an angle and again got no penitration.
YES IF YOU HIT THE DEER PERFECT, YOU DONT NEED A BROADHEAD YOU CAN KILL HIM WITH YOUR FIELD POINT. but when you hit bone you need a head to perform.
G5 HERE I COME.

DIEGO Says:

13 July 2010 at 12:59 pm.

I´m a fan of G5. I got a meta peep: perfect. i have a speed stud and really you win speed. I have a G5 sight and the only way to break this one is whit a hammer. Last year i buy a Quest Hammer 60# and the first time that i fired it i was impressed, it´s like shoot my last Hoyt at 48-50# so you can´t wrong whit the Montec. Here in Spain the JABALI (boar) is hard to hunt and if you find a old male you are in front to a iron skin (almost..) When you have only one chance better whit a montec in your arrow. G5 guys , Bravo! But only know fixes blades…

WillyBoy Says:

20 September 2010 at 5:40 pm.

I have shot both the G5 montecs and the Steelforce Sabertooths for years. Sabertooths win hands down!!!! Every deer I have ever shot, Pass through!!!!! No so with the Montec. Also the blood trail is incredible with the sabertooth!!! Try the serrated ones!!! OMG!!!! The absolute best!!!!!

bee` Says:

20 September 2010 at 7:16 pm.

I just used these on saturday september 18 2010. I shoot two deers within a minute from eachother and they left no blood trail. One got hit in the lung area and one in the ribcage area. Absolutely no blood. WORST arrow heads ever. When I got back to the camp, the old guys were saying that I should have used the thunder or the one that opens up. Yes, I wanted to but my friend suggested that I use the G5. But nope the G5 didn’t work for me and I lost the arrows. Couldn’t find my durable arrow because they were carbon laminated with wood lookalike. I was gonna give the G5 to my brother, but I don’t want him to end up like me. I’ll just waste the broadheads somehow.

Preston Says:

5 October 2010 at 2:43 pm.

I have used g5’s, strikers and wac em’s and honestly I like the wac em’s and strikers the most. I was able to achieve pass throughs on all three but I felt the striker type broadheads were faster and more accurate. I only had one major bone hit and that was with the g5 at 45 yards and there was no blood trail, I was up all night and the next day looking for that deer. The strikers have sharp, skinny blades that produce 3x more blood!

Anthony Says:

16 October 2010 at 9:39 am.

Ive been bow hunting for 5 yrs now an have yet to retrieve a animal other than 1 hog an coyote killed with a rage 2 blade an ive lost 2 deer an 2 hogs with the Muzzy MX-4 an smoked 1 deer an both hogs i wouldnt let my worst enemie take a shoot with a Muzzy 1 reason cuz i dought it would hurt that much but anyways not a good blood trail an i heard them run forever an never pill up but still went lookin but im loving the feedback on the Montec but do yall know any good or bad about the Reign Broadhead an is it considered fixed or expandable

Bill Says:

26 October 2010 at 9:30 am.

I love the Montec and the Muzzy mx-3. I shoot 100 grain in both. Typically I’ll use the muzzy because I can get 6 for the cost of 3 montecs. Never had a deer or bear go more than 40 yards with either. I did have a buffalo go over 250 yards after shooting with the muzzy. Had a great blood trail although I didn’t need it (wide open area). It’s amazing at the different reports from different blades, but you have to assume if you didn’t have a good blood trail or you couldn’t find your animal, it probably wasn’t the broadhead, but more likely the placement of the shot.

Jimbow Says:

14 November 2010 at 3:59 am.

Ummm…..I’m not an “expert”…but…You have to make sure your shooting the sharp G5s……the black ones are not sharp……if you shoot an animal with a SHARP broadhead…it will bleed….if you shoot it with a dull broadhead…it won’t bleed much.
Some of the entries I have just read are…well….stupid…..
It also sounds like a lot of you guys work for the compitition of G5?
Bill…I agree with you………Your broadhead should shave hair off your arm and if it doesn’t, don’t use it….and shoot it in the lungs….not rocket science….
Sharp cuts…dull pushes…..
Anything mechanical WILL fail sometimes….EX; A hammer…simple tool…rarely fails…..Automobile…complex…fails alot….
Broadheads…..Mechnical….will fail..(sometimes)…fixed blade…not fail…unless you do someting stupid with it…like NOT SHARPEN IT….or shoot a 30lb bow and hit it in a leg bone
Or shoot a 900lb bow at 35,000 MPH at a rhino….
Best advice, Make it a fixed blade that shoots good from your bow, make it RAZOR SHARP.
After 10,000 years, you’d figure we’d have this all figured out by now.
(just for the record, I don’t shoot the G5s. So no predudice here)

Mike Says:

23 November 2010 at 4:12 pm.

I’ve hunted Illinois for the past 3 yrs and have heard the same story that I told about the rage broadheads numerous times. The penetration is just not reliable. I shot a 150 plus buck a little forward my first year out and watched the arrow dam near bounce off him. I got 3 in of penetration and watched the buck walk off like nothing happened. I vowed to never use a mechanical broadheads again, and to find the best flying, penetrating, and strongest fixed broadhead on the market. I bought them all and ended up with the g5 montecs 100gr. Since i’ve shot 5 deer 1, 300lbs and have had a pass through on all. The blood trails have been good and the farthest they traveled was 80yrds!! I’m a firm believe that these broadheads are the best on the market!!!!

William Says:

I’m sure the G5 is a great broadhead. But please keep an open mind and try the Magnus Snuffer SS broadheads. They were amazing. I live in Singapore where you cannot practice with broadheads. So, I really need a broadhead that flies like a fieldpoint so that no retuning would be required when I went hunting. I played around with a few brands of broadheads but none were field point accurate like the Magnus Snuffer SS. Lifetime guarantee too. Took a Rowland Ward Blue Wildebeest with it at 25 yards. THe arrow hit the triangular top leg bone, broke it and still had 20 inches of penetration, hitting the heart and doing some lung damage as well. Try it, you may like the Magnus Snuffer as much as or maybe even more than the Montec G5. Think they are seen side by side on Cabela’s website. I’m planning to go after some wild boar in Malaysia next week. Wish me luck and happy hunting guys.

jimbow i agree with you completely, ive been bowhunting for 25 years killed my first deer with a bow when i was 16 years old with a 130 4-blade muzzy deer ran maybe 60 yards been hooked ever since on bowhunting. since then ive taken deer and hogs with bear super razors,muzzys,anderson super mags,thunderheads,wasp jackhammers,spitfires,steel force,snuffers ,g5 montecs,and tekans. the one thing ive learned through trial and error over the years is that its much more important that your broadhead is shaving sharp and put in the vitals regardless of what brand of broadhead you decide to shoot. cut on contact ,mechanicals , and fixed replacement blade heads will all kill deer. like all bowhunters try as you might you will eventually miss or lose a deer but more often than not its poor shot placement,dull broadheads, or a combination of both. my hunting partners 12 yr. old son started bowhunting this year 47 pound bowtech soldier easton epic 500 shafts and 100 gr.magnus stingers killed two deer 3pt. and doe both ran less than 65yds. I took 4 deer this year with a bowtech tribute 71lbs. easton 340 fmj’s and spitfire broadheads no deer ran farther than 50 yds. ive had really good luck with mechanicals but still prefer and recommend fixed blade heads for strength,dependabilty, and pentatration. not advertising for bowtech thats just what we like wouldnt have mattered what brand of bow arrow broadhead combo you choose. My point is we tune our bows, practice,practice,practice,and shoot shaving sharp broadheads period thats exactly what kills your game. arrows kill because of hemmorage caused by a sharp blade end of story. find a bow,arrow,and broadhead combo that you shoot well sharpen or replace those blades, put em in the vitals and you will harvest game. I pesonally like an arrow broadhead combo around 7 to 7.5 grains of arrow weight per pound of bow weight. Ive shot rigs at the i.b.o 5 grains per pound and the old a.m.o standard for a heavy hunting arrow of 9 grains per pound of bow weight. at 7 to 7.5 i still get plenty of speed and excellent pentetration i know you speed freaks may disagree but speed isnt everything especially with mechanicals i know thats what everybody worries about. How fast does your bow shoot but in reality unless your bow shoots faster than the speed of sound (around 1100fps) i’ll take a 500grain arrow at 245fps over a 350grain arrow at 305fps any day. sound still reaches your game faster than your arrow and i promise you you will get better pentetration especially on longer shots or with mechanicals that require a little extra energy to open. don’t let kinetic energy charts give you the wrong idea about speed. speed is great but when you go to a really light arrow it will always shed velocity faster down range than a heavier one. you can go to the extreme in either direction with your arrow but remember there is a good reason people shoot 1000gr. arrow broadhead combos at cape buffalo (momentum) wich nobody ever mentions and in my opinion a rangefinder can more than compensate for a slower arrow. if you really just need the speed i would just stay away from most of the mechanicals that open from the front. light arrows or light poundage bows i like the cut on contact heads. not trying to change anyones mind just passing along what i and my hunting buddies have had good luck with over the years. if your confident in your rig and it works for you don’t change a thing. I have taken deer with every broadhead i metioned earlier all with great results as long as i did my part. two of my buddies shot the 3 blade rage last year they loved them too. they all rock as far as i’m concerned of course they all have their strengths you just have to find the one that works for you. just remember keep em sharp,stay calm and pick a spot. GOOD LUCK!

I began losing my hair at a young age so I know how it can feel to go nuts with buying hair care products. It’s almost certainly too many poor ones in the first place that caused the thinning!

I’ve been using the rage 3 blade for 2 years and have been impressed. Over the last 17 years of bowhinting I have tried slick tricks Lizzy’s and about 8 other fixed blades and was never impressed with tuning or blood trails. I used rockets for a long time and was reasonably satisfied with the job they did but last year curiosity got the better of me and I bought a package of rage 3 blades. They do an unbelievable job 9 deer shot none going more than 20yds and the blood trails are the heaviest I’ve ever seen. Not that they’ve been needed all animals dropped in sight. They are basically a one shot head its rare that one comes out undamaged after all the deer I’ve only put new blades on 2 the rest were bent and mangled.

I’m a new to bow hunting, my 1st year. Starting out I bought some of the Rage 2 blade 2″ also the 40ke. But after all the horror stories, they never made it to the field.
I then bought some of the g5 montecs and the montec cs both in 100gr. I couldn’t get them to hit the same zip code twice. I took my bow to the pro shop I use, to check the tune. Everything checked out, they still wouldn’t group. While watching dominant bucks on tv Stan Potts came on with a tech. tip on how to tune your broadheads. He used an arrow spinner and 24 hour epoxy. He epoxies the insert in the arrow, installs the broadhead, puts on the spinner and spins it. If the tip wobbles, he turns the broadhead a little, until there is zero wobble.
This worked for me, my groups shrank by a mile, I then fletch the arrow, with the fletching indexed with the broadhead. I know some say it helps and some say it don’t.
Earlier in the posts someone said, they only practice with one arrow with one broadhead. I shoot until I have a quiver full, that will hit darn close to the same spot, out to 40 yes. Each arrow seems to have its own personality.
I killed two deer with the montec this year, one from a treestand and one from a ground blind. One was a double lung, the other was heart & lung. Neither deer went very far, one about 30 yds. the other, about 50 - 60 yds. The blood trail was disappointing, I’m not the best at tracking, luckily I didn’t have to.
Has anybody on here tried razor caps?

Hi there. I am a Namibian Bow Hunter and we have a game farm here. I used the Rage for the past couple of months but they irritate the s(^*& out of me. When ever you go for a walk and stalk the and you touch grass or a leaf they open up. They are also not very strong. if you hit a bone you have to replace most parts on the broad-head. What i like about them is that they leave a huge blood trail and that they shoot exactly like my practice arrows. I switched to the montec 140gr and i just love them. They are basically indestructible. If any of you like to come to Namibia for a hunt let me know. my email address is nrm@iway.na. Great review btw.

Xbox Kinect has more distinctive technology using the controller-free Kinect, making it increasingly frustrating that Microsoft’s own games felt more derivative as opposed to third-party Dance Central. Worse still , probably the most awe-inspiring Kinect game introduced this week, Child of Eden, wasn’t playable, and possesses no release date announced.

Slick Trick 1 1/8″ 125gr is my favourite. They fly perfectly ( or very very close to ) up to 45 meters ( not yds! ), and I like the 4 blades - they leave a huge bullet-kind of hole.
They also have an all stell design, and the blades are .39, very thick and super sharp out of the box. Believe me, try a Slick Trick and you’ll never be disappointed.

im 16 years old and i hunted bear with my bow and rage didn’t work both times when i hit a bear. Ive looked at the reviews and you say the the g5 is a great broadhead so im willing to give it a shot but is shooting the 85 grain better for me because i pull back 54lbs and have a draw lenght of 24inches. so i would appreciate some advice.

Cody, I’ve had pretty good luck with the 100 gr. montec on whitetail I get complete pass throughs @ 20 yds., I’m shooting a Z7 with a 27″ draw length, and 60 lb. pull. The montec takes a little more work to get it to shoot then the rage. I use carbon express maximta hunter shafts with 3″ Norway vains, and beeman vibrake inserts, nocks. This combination works good for me. Be sure to spin your arrows , the broadhead
shouldn’t wobble, and put as much helical as you can on the vains. I hope this helps you. The montec is very hard on targets, you can expect to replace it often .

I needed a fixed blade one-piece broadhead to hunt black bear in N.H. I was torn between G5 montec and Nap hellrazor.Ultimately chose the Nap hellrazor,and the broadhead worked wonderful.Easton n-fused arrow,easton tracer nock,and the hellrazor.At 20 yards the arrow ripped through the bear,and he dropped 60 yards later.I’m surte the g5 is a good broadhead,but this hunter is a hellrazor fan.Either way,if your hunting big game,get rid of the mechanicals.Fixed blade one-piece broadheads are the way to go.You just can’t beat a pass-through shot.

Been using 100 gr. G5’s for 4 years now. I’ve taken 22 deer with this type of broadhead. I mark each kill on the broadhead and I have one head that has taken 4 deer. They fly true and easy to sharpen. Last year I smacked through a big 6 pt.’s breast bone destroying the arrow to splinters but the head was fully intact and ready to go again. The buck went 20 yards and dropped. Wouldn’t go back to anything else.
