Re: wasp broadheads

It seams there aren`t alot of WASP users. Probably because they don`t beat the advertisement pages like others do.

Re: wasp broadheads

Shot my first crossbow buck with a Wasp. They are great heads and don't get the press as do others with higher advertising budgets.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: wasp broadheads

I used wasp heads for 6 years, hammer sst's. I always had pass throughs and killed my game but i found that the tip of the heads would chip and sometimes come off after shooting game with them. I also always had to sight my broad heads in different than my field tips. After 20 yards they just didnt come close to where my field tips were shooting. They are definately nice sharp heads though. Im gonna try slick tricks next year. Who knows, i may end up going back if they dont work.

Re: wasp broadheads

I have used the Wasp Jackhammers for several years now. Killed two deer with them.

Re: wasp broadheads

Wasp Jackhammer is the only mechanical we keep in stock at all times. If I were going to use a mechanical, it would be the Jackhammers.

Re: wasp broadheads

Wasp broadheads were the part of the next generation of hunting tips that appeared after famed Bear four blade design and others such as the "Super Hilbre"......Back then , Wasps were THE tip to use, and if you didn't have them in your quiver, you were behind the times.

Re: wasp broadheads

I remember the "super hilbre" head, Ken. I never shot them, but some years ago while chainsawing a log, sparks flew. I ended up replacing the chain and cutting farther down the log. When I split the log, there was a super hilbre embeded in the log.

The theory was that with that long and slender head you would get more penetration. I used bear razorheads on those cedar telephone poles back in the 1960s, and took several deer with them; even had a couple of pass throughs. They were a big improvement over the old three blade heads I used before then. Easier to sharpen too.

These new broadheads are so advanced over the primitive tackle I used back then it is like night and day.
