After watching this review, I picked up a pack of these for $72 up at KYGunCo. This is the bad one of the three. Had a chunk missing from both sides near the tip. Probably can't take out that big groove down at the bottom of the blade without removing way more metal than I want to.

The other two from the pack look pretty good in comparison. They're nowhere near sharp, but I ain't complaining about that either. They all need to be sharpened after making sure they fly straight.

I'll post another set of pictures after I fly 'em and get 'em all sharpened back up.

Where those vented or non vented?

Yeah that looks like a hunk of junk. I’d rather go buy some two dollar Walmart broadheads Then support a company that lets shit like that go through the door
Weekend blew past me. Will hopefully get back to sharpening 'em this evening. and test flying 'em before Saturday.

I think some folks do 'get it', that when you hit a certain price-point a quality control slip is going to hurt your company's reputation. I doubt I'll ever shoot three broadheads (of any manufacturer) on any day hunting. I paid the retail price for three and only got two good ones.

Sharpened two of 'em to show you.

The steel is really hard. Gave up trying to remove the gouging. Measured weight went from 152.2 grains to 150.8

Worked the pitting out.

Both are beyond hair-popping sharp. The one below weighed in at 152 grains. I gave it a hundred strokes on a 1000 grit stone and a thorough stropping. Now weighs 151.9 grains. Doesn't look like it in the pic, but that's a mirror edge.

If you are like me you sharpen up all your broadheads and strop them on leather, then strip on paper. Just to wind up shooting through a groundhog that happens to be standing in front of a rock.

I don’t buy expensive broadheads, maybe because I know myself too well.

I’m genuinely curious why you would choose a broadhead like that. Are you by chance getting dropped off in the Yukon for five years and only allowed to take three broad heads and a sharpening stone? I’m sure they’re the toughest thing around but with the options available today just seems like a poor choice for ky deer imo
