10 New Broadheads for 2011
July 05, 2011
*Crimson Talon V4
The V4 from Mid-Atlantic Archery Products is a four-bladed cut-on-contact broadhead with two rigid air foils to help spin stabilize the arrow in flight for truer accuracy and to create a spiral wound channel.
The four blades are .035-inch thick and com-bined deliver a nice 1 1/8-inch cutting diameter. Adjustable between 100 and 125 grains by simply removing a weighted ring.
G5 introduces a 100 percent steel expandable broadhead with three blades in their T3 model. Fully deployed, the T3 carves a 1 1/2-inch wound channel.
The broadhead employs G5's Spider Clip blade reten-tion system, and each pack comes with a choice of two different tension clips — one for easier deployment from lower poundage bows and one with stronger tension for high speed bows.
Grim Reaper Whitetail Special
Specially designed for higher kinetic energy bows and whitetail-sized game, the new three-blade, mechanical Whitetail Special by Grim Reaper boasts a gaping 2-inch cut and .035-inch blade thickness.
Available in 100-grain only, each pack comes with a practice head.
Grim Reaper Razorcut SS
The RazorCut SS is a solid steel machined cut-on-contact tip mechanical broadhead. The solid steel tip aids in truer flight and can be sharpened.
Delivers an impressive 2-inch cutting diameter. Heads are available in 75, 85, 100 and 125 grains.
Grim Reaper Mathews Edition
Available from Mathews dealers everywhere, this broadhead series made by Grim Reaper is available in three variations. One is a 100-grain, three-blade mechanical with a stainless RazorCut tip design for impact as well as its whopping 2-inch cutting diameter.
There are also 100-grain, three-blade heads designed for use on both compound bows and crossbows and have been tested and proven on speeds of over 400 fps and accurate to ranges of 100 yards or more. They feature Mathews' exclusive V-notch tip and generate a cutting diameter of 1 1/2 inches.
Lastly, the Mathews Edition fixed-blade broadhead uses airfoils to spin-stabilize the arrow in flight and produces a 1 3/16-inch cut-ting diameter from its three blades.
Designed as a super-compact three-blade broadhead, Muzzy's MX-3 is available in a 75-grain and 125-grain configuration. The gold 75-grain model features an aircraft-grade alu-minum ferrule, while the silver 125-grain model employs steel.
Both feature Muzzy's Trocar Tip. The MX-3 leaves a 1 3/16-inch cutting circle.
NAP Thunderhead Razor
NAP's 100-grain Thunderhead Razor comes fully assembled and eliminates the need for rings, making blade re-placement and alignment easier.
The Razor features offset blade alignment with straight-edge blades, micro-grooved pro ferrules and NAP's patented Trophy Tip chisel tip for bone-breaking ability. Delivers a 1 1/8-inch cutting diameter.
The Exodus is a three-blade fixed broadhead designed to deliver field point accuracy through Quality Archery Designs' Blade Over Shaft technology, which allows a shorter head by sharply angling the blades.
Cutting diameter is 1 1/4-inch delivered by .035-inch-thick blades. Available in 85 and 100 grains. Blades can be barbed or nonbarbed.
Slicktrick Grizztrick 2
Constructed with an all-new ferrule and blades built to deliver laser-like flight and superior cutting, the Grizztrick 2 from Slicktrick sports four surgically sharp blades for superior cutting.
This broadhead will punch a hole in game 2 1/2 inches in diameter. All-steel Mercedes blades are reported to be 25 percent stronger than standard cutters.
The Wasp Sledgehammer boasts a 150-grain solid stain ferrule with an SST Trocar tip. The blades are .027 inch thick and deliver a cutting diameter of 1 1/16 inches.
A three-pack of broad-heads comes with two sets of extra blades.
