I would like to know this myself, I have some I bought, I've read where they don't fly well, I will be shooting the tenpoint shadow nxt. I like the offset blades, guess I just need to shoot a deer with one and see what happens

I never met a crossbow that didn't shoot the 3 blade Swhackers lights out! I have killed deer, turkeys, bears, and wild hogs with them and they always flew great and performed great as well.

They shoot good for me out of my Matrix 350. I've only shot 1 with them. It went about 35 yards and was done. The head and arrow are in the quiver, ready to kill again.

Atleast use one for practice to see where theyre hitting before slinging one at a deer. You don't want to make a bad shot loosing your trophy buck!;)

I started using them 2 years ago and they fly great out of my Storm same as fieldpoints out to 50 yards
I have takin 3 deer with them and they haven't ran over 40 yards and have a great blood trail

The practice head that came with mine was junk it wouldn't spin true si I sacrificed a good head to sight in with

No need to sacrifice a head or blades. Just tape the blades closed with electrical tape like I did in the video above.

Well I did some testing 3 blade vs 2 blade swhacker. I'm shooting KI Ripper 415 with spynal Tapps Weight around 435
Twenty yards 2 blade 3/4 inch low dead center 3 blade 3/4 low 1/2 inch to the left. Thirty yards was pretty much the same. I didn't have time to go out farther. This was with three different arrows and switching heads randomly.

I got to shoot both 2 and 3 blades again today out two forty yards. They were about the same as thirty just a touch lower. I repeated the shoots over at the same target and they were touching the holes from the first shots. They both fly great a little different than field points. With a little scope adjustment they would be on the money. So tell me which would you chose. 2 or 3 blade.

Thanks

I shoot the 100gn 2"cut, The 100gn 3 blade and the 125gn 2.25" cut. I haven't killed any with the 2.25" cut yet. Only 1 so far with the 3 blade. I've killed about 10 with the 100gn 2" cut 2 blade. I shoot them out of 3 different bows and have confidence in all of them. So imo its a toss up. Here's damage from a 100gn 2"cut 2 blade

I have shot any slackers, but always preferred three blades over two. It just seems like the three blade even with a smaller cutting diameter "should" do more damage with the increased cutting area. That may or may not be the case in reality however.
