Think I may update to a 3 blade broadhead yet this season. Would you do a G5 Montec 125. I shoot a Magnus stinger 125 and have had a thought of moving to the G5.
I shoot a 47# Black Widow PLX with a 600grain arrow weight at 31" draw
Any concerns with that 3 blade broadhead?
What ya need is some old Hi-Precision three blades that were made right here in Iowa. You can sharpen them with a pocket knife and they will kill a pheasant very dead. Considering the penetration success that we have had with two blade heads and the failures that I seen others had with multi-blade head back in the day, I would treat claims of superior performance with a degree of skepticism. How do they work when every element is not optimal?
Shooting 2 blade Zwickey a long time and very satisfied with the Tusker Concorde and Javelin.
Keep 'em sharp!!!!
pretty sure you shouldn't have any problems with the three-blade. I had a bunch of 2 blades gifted to me and bought a few more this year. when they are gone I will be switching to three blades. with the Magnus the steel is so thin you aren't getting any of the "bone busting" benefits anyway that you may get from the other 2 blades. I would rather have more blood. I shot Magnus all last year and some this year. I was not impressed with the durability, bending blades, etc. and the edge retention was not great. maybe I got a bad batch. either way, I don't think you are losing anything by moving to the 3 blades. according to Cody Greenwood of Trad Lab, three blades can require less push force in soft tissue than 2 blades. I would guess a lot of it has to do this the fact there is less friction on the ferrule and the shaft with a three-blade. that part is just me guessing tho.
I’ve used them and they work fine. They fly great. After many years, a lot of different broad heads, and much game I’m back where I started with a simple 2 bladed head. I got caught up in all the hype years ago about trying the latest and greatest broad heads. A simple Bear, Ace, or Zwickey will do the job just fine.
Get it pretty good and sharp, post pix of your deer !
