Re: rocket broadheads

I have used the steelheads and steelhead XL's for the last two years. Buck last year was broadside at 15 yards and put a perfect Y through the heart, went 60 yards.Buck this year was sharply quartering away, went in between back left two ribs and exited in front right armpit, buck went 80 yards. I love them. accuracy is great and they don't open up in my quiver

Re: rocket broadheads

I use the Hammerhead. its the only broad head i have found where you could literally hit the deer anywhere it seems and they die... granted thats not the goal to hit the deer anyway, but deflections & fever happen... i have seen deer hit in some bad places by friends/family that have died rather quickly with these broadheads.

Killed a pile of deer with Steelheads. One of the best penetrating heads on the market!

Re: rocket broadheads

rh,
I say they don't open in the quiver but my quiver also holds the arrow with two grippers so I do not have to push my broadhead up into the foam head

Re: rocket broadheads

I also use the Sidewinders. Since using them I've never had a deer run out of sight when hit. I have had a few blades break off inside the deer though. Need to be careful when field dressing when it happens. But over all...great broadhead.

I KILLED THREE WITH STEELHEADS.They do penetrate like crazy but I broke blades all three times and the blades were extremely dull.I also killed a couple with sidewinders and they were even worse as far as durability went.
