Best policy I am sure is to replace blades. I have watched killing of Hogs with them on you tube by the Famous Ranch Fairy. Tho he uses a compound bow they do a lot of damage. I like the serrated edges. Question is how do they fly out of a crossbow?
I shoot a scorpyd deathstalker 420 with spynal tapp arrows with 110 grain inserts and blazer vanes. My arrow weighs 408 with 100 grain ser-razor, and the deathstalker with that combination shoots at 402 fps. I can shoot 2" dots out to 50 yards with no issues.
They shoot great out of my ripper 415 with spynal tapps. Confident out to 80yds with them. Performed great on an antelope buck this last season. I run the 2 blade, as i had some concerns with the 4 blade design
The only downside for me was the tip strength. As much as I wanted to love the 100gr Black Hornet Ser Razors 2 of the 3 heads in the package exhibited tip curling when shot the first time into a new 18-1 Rhino target. I did not bother to shoot the third head as I was already convinced. The distance was 25 yards using a 340fps TenPoint Eclipse.
Accuracy was not an issue as they flew great but just as I suspected, the chisel tip design turned out to be superior in strength to the cut on contact design, at least for me.
I know I could have returned them to Magnus with there generous return/replacement policy but probably won't. Instead I will go back to using my tried and true 100gr SlickTrick Magnums that I have used for the last 20 years with both verticals and horizontals. They have never let me down as long as I have done my part correctly.
I have no qualms with Magnus whatsoever, they are a fine company with a great reputation.
I wish all those who use them well, unfortunately they weren't the best head available for me.
