NAP Killzone Crossbow broadheads

Anybody using these broadheads this season? Just ordered some for my dad who will be using a crossbow for the first time this season.

Re: NAP Killzone Crossbow broadheads

Probably won't be using them but have been shooting the 100 and 125 grain version on and off this summer. I like that there are no rubber bands for sure and they do fly great.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

So being curious, why are you considering not using them?

I shoot and test many different broadheads. I like the killzones alot but am pretty set on shooting the Ramcats this fall as of now. I wouldn't hesitate to hunt with the killzones though.

Re: NAP Killzone Crossbow broadheads

I will be using them when I take my Ten Point Stealth XLT. I am using the original Killzone in my Mathews last year and had good success on a doe, so I got the Crossbow version for when I want to use the Crossbow. I shot both the actual broadhead as well as a fertile with practice blades out of my Ten Point and they were right with the field tops out to 50 yards. I was very pleased with how they shot.

Re: NAP Killzone Crossbow broadheads

I know people have used the regular Killzone out of crossbows, so I talked to NAP about this and they strongly advised against shooting the regular Killzone out of crossbows. They said the spring retention clips on the original were not intend to withstand the force from the higher KE of a crossbow. I do know the Crossbow version blades and spring clips seem to heavier than the regular Killzones that I have for my compound.just wanted to pass this along.

Re: NAP Killzone Crossbow broadheads

The manufacturers put those warnings on their stuff for a reason. So when folks deem those warnings frivolous and use them in ways other than intended and get hurt (it only takes ONE TIME) who do tose idiots cry to? Yup Internet forums and then the product bashing begins. Not saying anyone on HERE would do that...oh no! We'ree far to intelligent on this forum to not follow manufacturer's instructions!

Re: NAP Killzone Crossbow broadheads

It seems like most guys prefer the trophy tip, but NAP is only making the crossbow version with the COC (cut on contact) tip. Wonder why?
