Check out this little broadhead from Flying Arrow Archery. It's called the Toxic. It weighs in at 100 grains and has over 5" of cutting surface.

Looks like it would cut a real plug through the animal. Anyone shot these and resulting accuracy? Wonder how they/if they tear up a target?

They really don't look all that aerodynamic but it just may be the picture.

They are supposed to fly just like a field point.

WOW They still seem to me that they would really be fighting the vanes for steering. I guess I'll just have to see video of them. When someone finds a video please post it.

Would be interesting to see it go through a shoulder blade of a deer or just through big game in general to better understand the potential increased surface area drag/resistance as it goes into an animal. The blades look exceptionally thick and durable in the pics.

Similar heads have been done before, the first I think was done in the mid 50's and then a serpentine blade later.
I think I will pass.

Does anyone know the price and if they come with a practice head? I think I'm going to try some out.

It looks they would be kind of hard to make a practice head. I guess it would have to be the same but unsharpened since it is a fixed blade.

A tough blade to sharpen, probably a throw away when it gets dull.

Question is Why does someone have to come out every year with another broadhead? There are so many out there! Plenty do a good job of bringing big game down. The answer is,,,$$$$$$. Always need something else. Our culture. Never satisfied.

Either way they look cool and look like they should leave a huge hole in what ever you shoot with them.

Yes, huge wholes in your hunting target that's good and huge wholes in your practice target that's bad.

The bold and the brave should be encouraged to explore new things, if not for them we would still be swinging in the trees.

Looks like they sell replacement blades so they probably won't sell practice heads and they do have a dealer locator function for local shopping.
