SHOOT THAT KIND OF BROADHEAD FOR DEER! With that kind of penetration, the deer ain't got a chance. Just remember to use the fletched ones. There again, if ya gotta shoot around some limbs or a tree....?

Sorry about the tackleboxes. That sounds like something I'd do, so don't feel too bad.

The Hellrazor got maybe 1/2 inch more but they were all right there close to the same. Take this test for what its worth. You can see I had no plans this Saturday night.
Well did you get them out? And what was the damage to the heads after removed from the tank?

I like the flight of the hellrazor a lot. I unfortunately missed the foam target and hit the wood fence behind it. All three blades broke off the center ferral. I wonder what your blades did on your hellrazor all tanked up test?

I pulled all 3 of them out. Or should I say cut them out. They were all in good shape. No broken blades or nothing!

You gotta be kidding me. That spitfire didn't blow up? I thought for sure one of the blades would pop off or something. That's nuts!

The only blades I ever broke on them were misses in rocks. They are tough!

That's one whimpy hot water tank if you ask me. The steel glass lined tanks I work with would have put a new twist in each one of those broadheads. Cut them out is a bit of a job if you got into the actual tank.

Default I did it again...

Hey does anyone know how to get the blade section of a HellRazor out of a solid core door?

I snapped off the threads and then had to take my roofing hammer and bust off the ferrel, now I just have to get the blades out. Something tells me I should just leave them in and paint over.

I did find out that 2 & 1/2 vanes, (not the blazers), look cool and sleek... but the arrow flys like crap! Lesson learned. Again.

I had to take some curved head water pump pliers to grabbed the blades and then roll the head pliers to lever the blades out one at a time obviously. I couldn't pull them straight out. They were stuck in there pretty tight.
