3 blade Swhackers, first look

Here is the first look at a production run Swhacker 3 blade that I received to do some testing in my crossbows. They are set to hit the streets sometime in June is all goes well. Unlike the round ferrule of the original 2 blades, the 3 blade's ferrule is squared off into a triangle shape. As you can see in the picture, the wing blades are also now swept forward. As with the originals, a shrink band holds the blades in place.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Are the blades sharp on both sides like the Ramcats?

Ha, many kinds of expensive broadhead arrows. Enough for insecure archers to shoot.

Re: 3 blade Swhackers, first look

The laws of physics dictate that they cannot penetrate as far as a similar 2 blade! Not gonna happen! If you have lots of KE you will be alright but not for low poundage setups.

If you are a fan of the two blade Swhackers, you will like the 3 blade. I only received one pack for testing but I have scheduled to arrive by early June. I hope to hunt with them this fall.
