RAZORBAK 5

I bought a box lot at an auction last weekend and there were 4 full orange boxes of these broadheads 4 in each box for a total of 16. Were these a popular broadhead back in the day?

I weighed a couple and they scale about 140 grains. Just wondered if anyone here had any experience with them or how they performed.

Back in the day they were the cats behind, if I remember right the blades spin. I sold a bunch of them from my dad's archery shop after he passed away.

The older I get the better I was.

Shot a lot of deer with that head back in the day. Very accurate and it made some devastating holes in animals. Some had problems with them holding together but I never experienced that. Stopped using them when they became hard to find.

Yes the blades do spin and they have a chisel head. I reckon they were pretty deadly.

I also took several bucks with this arrow head in the 80's...only switched to get a lighter head for the ultra light aluminum arrows.

Oldie but a goodie! I remember them back in the early 90's. You could buy them at K-mart.

Re: RAZORBAK 5

I still use these today. A sporting goods store went out of business here in the 90s and I bought all the heads and replacement cartiridges they had. I am down to my last 6.

I started using them with my Bear Alaskan in 1979. When I first bought them the archery shop owner shot one into a cement block. Pulled it out and head was intact, few bent blades but it held up. That convinced me.

Switched in the mid-80s to Rocky Mountains to get a "bigger hole" but never could get them to fly right so back to the Razorback 5s. Never had any issues. If I recall they also made a Razorback 4 and 3.

Re: RAZORBAK 5

THOSE WERE THE THE BEST BROADHEAD BACK IN THE DAY. I SHOT THOSE OUT OF A BEAR WHITETAIL. THE ARROW MUST HAVE WEIGHED CLOSE TO 600 GRAINS.
