Ramcat Broadheads Question

I am looking for a fixed blade broad head. I've heard good things about Ramcats but the blades appear flimsy. Can anyone with experience with these heads chime in?

Thanks for your help in advance!!

Re: Ramcat Broadheads Question

Ramcats have worked for me! Complete pass thrus every shot I have taken. One blade was bent on the end and one was broken off but don't know if it happened inside the deer or when it stuck in the ground on the other side? It is very rocky where I hunt. I do know they fly great and are very sharp! The guy and his wife who have the company are from Pittsburgh.

I agree the blades look a little flimsy, but they sure have a following!

Shot Slick Ticks for years, but this year I'm leaning towards a different head. Either Ramcats or QAD Exodus. I hear a lot bout the flimsy blades which is leading me more towards Exodus which I have heard nothing but good things about.

This ^^^ is my new go to fixed blade!



ETA: 20 yard shot down hill, from tree stand, between two tree limbs 6" apart, with a 50 yard recovery.

I've got 3 of them in my jewelry box waiting for me come October!

Uh Oh! Janie's got her gun!

Re: Ramcat Broadheads Question

When it comes to broadheads I've seen a lot of pictures of deer taken and entry and exit wounds.
But sometimes litlle mention of accuracy.
I switched to Slick Trics and have yet to shoot a deer with them, but the accuracy is awesome. Dead on like field tips.
I'm shooting the 100 gr. 4 blade and by the looks of them no doubt in my mind what they will do.
No flimsey blades here.

Re: Ramcat Broadheads Question

I haven't shot either...the ramcat..I don't like the flimsy look and blades doing whatever they do on a hinge or whatever?

The QAD exodus looks like a solid head...but I don't know about the blade over shaft deal...hit something solid and they may flex enough to damage a 10-15$ carbon shaft..? I don't know..just a possibility from the look I got online..

I can speak for slick trick mags and grizztricks...

I've killed deer and turkeys with both...I am shooting the mags now just because I can buy them and blades locally where grizztricks I couldn't...

Both fly awesome..both tune right with my field points..both blow a nasty hole...

I really like the 4 blade holes over 3 blade holes after shooting 3 blade heads..



My last mag kill


Blood trail was like that and heavier for all 30 yards she went...


Entrance




Exit


Put any arrow with any decent broadhead there and I'm sure results would been similar...but the holes and blood trail were very impressive to say the least...one of those trails where you walk off to the side to keep blood off your boots...


I look for accuracy...a broadhead does me no good if it won't shoot accurately...it does me no good if it won't tune with my field points..I tune and get them flying right and then practice with fielpoints to save my targets and periodically check my BH flight a few arrows a session..

And I look for durability..and easy of repair...I can buy slicktrick blades at most shops...and they swap out in seconds..I carry a few sets in the truck for when I whack a turkey or whatever..


My one question on the slicktricks is will they maintain their high standards now that they've been sold....? I sure hope so because I am happy with them...
