Carolina wild hog

Was fortunate to take this nice free range sow in South Carolina earlier this week. Shot her with a Wicked Ridge Invader and the new SEVR broadhead.

dpms, after I read your earlier post I looked up Sevr broad heads on the net, what is your opinion of them? What holds them open after the O-ring is cut?

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

They just became available a few weeks ago and I got some of the initial run for testing. I plan to spend some more time with them out of several different bows.

They performed perfectly for me on the hog. Once the blades open, they cannot close as the base of the blades are offset and lock against each other. There is a special tool included to unlock to blades to close them. The beauty of the design is the blades can pivot at their axis of rotation so if one side encounters heavy bone, the deployed blades pivot the opposite direction to keep the broadhead cutting straight. Another nice feature is the blades can be locked closed with a set screw so you can practice with the same broadhead you plan to hunt with. Remove the set screw after practice and hunt with them same head. The cut is pretty big at over 2 inches as well.

Since they can be ordered in singles, you don't have to invest $40 to find out you don't like them.

Thank you, they have my curiosity piqued. They are a little salty in price but if the replacement blades are reasonably priced they look like they may be worth it. I will be watching for you further reviews.
