Default Hissing Hellrazors??!!

Alright Ralph, Vicki, and the Posse:
I know you shoot Hellrazors. Do they hiss when you shoot them? Mine sure do. Is this normal? Can it be fixed? Will it cause deer to jump my string? The good news is that they are flying like darts for me

I had the same problem with the G5 Montecs. How fast are you shooting???

I don't know of a way to fix it, I had to switch heads.

The G5 guys told me it was from shooting over 300 fps. G5 claims to have fixed it on there heads.

Good luck!!!

I have the hellrazors and love them but I did notice a little sound coming from them but not too bad, but I shoot just under 60 pounds and they do it, but other than that small problem, awesome broadheads

I've shot them at 290fps. Great head but my hearing isn't what it use to be but I have not noticed any hissing sounds. Again some high pitched levels of sound are no longer for me to hear.

Anyone ever have game react to the hissing? I love how sharp they are and they fly great for up to 35 yrds (my farthest distance).

Every once in a great while we did hear a little hiss, but nothing that seemed to create a problem. The Hellrazor is a sweet broadhead and I just took an elk at 33 yards and a moose at 5 feet with them and the critters had no idea!!
