Eat your Wheaties, TF.  You'll be dragging them out of the woods this season... I know, I've seen you shoot!

I didn’t mind rage trypan, and still don’t mind them, but they are one shot heads. Magnus black hornets Shoot great and I’ve already gotten a replacement head when I shot the ground and hit a rock. Life time warranty.

If your bow is tune, you’ll see no difference, I shoot about 270 FPS with a 440 grain arrow.

Rage.

I'll never use a front-opening blade again (dubious blood trail on the entry).

I've experimented a bit with Montec and may use them on the vertical bow this year if they are hitting properly. They don't fly well on my crossbow and veer severely enough that I would not take a shot past 20-25 yards with xbow with them. Really want to use them on vertical, though.

it could be any of a bunch of heads depending on what bow i take with me, what spins true, matches weight, and is sharp that day. multiple ones from Rage, Magnus, G5, NAP, and Muzzy.

That's some heft but guessing by your size you're pulling 80 pounds and draw length a bit longer than most

Going to be 300g VPA 3 blade with longbow and 125g rage hypo if the compound makes an appearance. 

waiting on an arrow saw in the mail. changing weight of head and insert weights just isn't working out as well without cutting them. once i have a saw i might have to cut to tune for those heads you both are using.

He has a long draw for sure!   Never seen so much power from a 40lb recurve.  Lol

I leave most arrows full length.   But I know that I can tune all of my trad bows with 200-300g heads with a 340 spine arrow.  Some will also tune with a full length 300 spine arrow but not all.  I have a selection of heads from 200-300 and it covers it.  I stopped cutting as it would drive me nuts if I ended with one too stiff.   Cutting works however if you have very consistent form and you only trim a small amount at a time.  Good luck.

Just ordered some slick tricks too for the compound, I've never heard anything bad about them. I did buy a Bear Super Grizzly recurve a few weeks ago but nowhere near proficient enough to hunt with it yet. Good to know a few of you guys have experience with them, I might need the help along my journey to a traditional deer.

My 100g slick tricks are currently screwed into my arrows. But my mechanical choice would be the nap spitfire doublecross I think .  I may buy a pack of those. 

 

Maybe 2 and 2 in my quiver and see how I feel that day

Bought a bunch of rage trypans off a friend who no longer hunts, so ill be using that this season. I have been thinking of switching to fixed broadheads

I switched to muzzy 100 grain a few years ago and haven’t looked back, always a good blood trail and haven’t had a deer go over 80 yards yet

Decided to order up some firenock swingblades. Gonna see how they compare to my trusty ole WASP BOSS broadheads. They are supposed to be the same diameter once expanded so we shall see.

Started out in the ‘80s with a four bladed fixed , but a pencil point .

Then a cut on contact Mangus two blade , they sure were bone cutters  , killed many deer some never moved .

Then to today  Mangus Stingers .

I really like heads where the deer don’t run off like they we’re kicked in the a$$, but take a step and look around .

I made the switch to fixed blades for the first time in many years. I picked up a pack of Magnus Black Hornet Serrated and shot them yesterday.  First shot at 30 yards was DEAD NUTS, went out to 40 and had to rotate to the larger spot on the target to be able to see it, but pretty much dead nuts as well.  Can't wait try them on a deer.

Upgraded from the knockoff Chinese Rage hypos to the real Feradyne Rage hypo trypans...also made in China.  They look nasty.  Also snagged another pack of the newer version Rocket Steelheads.
