So as I sit here in this tree on this unusually warm day, I thought about these new broadheads I have been using since Sept,. I feel after taking some game I could comment on their performance.
I am using the 125 g, 4 blade 3 inch cut, Whitetail Extreme.
The heads cost $11 a pop. They are a one n done head. To replace the rebuild components just isnt enough savings.
Now for performance, The entrance holes are small, but OMG the exit is huge. They fly just the same as my FP. Now for the bad, the blades seem to break at the pivot point. I have found that they break after the exit, maybe when hitting the ground etc. I did find one time where a blade broke off in the animal.
The other thing that ticked me off is when the blades came into contact they would pivot back onto the carbon arrow. But being that the brass insert is there I am sort of ok with it. I would live to try other heads but unfortunately not to many companies make a true 125 g head. I know Swat makes a add on weight, but i rather see them put that weight into a better blade, not just garbage weight.
Anyways i just got 3 more packs , Until something i feel better comes along, I will stick with these. Oh, yes I do double band them. They are not Xbox rated

My lighted glory nock let me down last night tho

I only ... wish broadheads were one & done... if I had the money...lol I have to rebuild 7 broadheads before the next hunt, 6 FOC's and a Spitfire MAXX. Tedious, boring, time consuming, and annoying work for me. Whadda pain in the arse. I'll say this much for the Truglo 4 blades, those things are clean-em and re-use'm. They're nearly bulletproof! Put one through a raccoon the other night with zero damage to the broadhead. Just wish they dropped deer better. Broadheads have become ludicrously expensive. (n) Replacement blades ain't much of a bargain anymore either. Pretty much sucks if you're killing quite a few deer. :rolleyes:

I've been shooting the 4 blade Extremes and now shoot the 3 blade Pro Series Specials. My experience is similar to Marks. I do like 'em and will continue to use them until something better comes along. I take 1-2 pigs a month and that takes a toll on arrows and broadheads but it's a price I'm happy to pay. Now if we could get GR to make them in black.....

Loved the crossbow rated razor tip reapers but basically one and done. I now use the Swat Xmags and they are one and done. I have a ton of replacement blades and some day will rebuild a dozen XMags .

They are easy to rebuild also IMO.
