I am still sticking with the last few 100gr 3 blade rage broadheads I have, I wish they still made them, I am not that big of a fan of their 2 blade models, but I have killed about 200 animals with the old 3 blades, I have never had a deflection or failure to deploy. I have actually killed 2 sika does with 1 shot with them. I have hung small pigs up on the hoist and seen daylight through them after shooting them with a 3 blade rage. Dang shame they discontinued them. I have a bunch of old ones that I have rebuilt. I know some folks don't like expandables, but I have a long track record with them and really believe in them!
Your shooting this out of a traditional bow?

160gr Snuffers with 125gr steel bh adapters. I like a big head that causes a big leak.

Did it bend like that upon impact with the tree, or did it bend when you were trying to dislodge it from the tree?
I'm guessing upon impact. I was very careful removing so I wouldn't cause any damage. I'm pretty sure I've seen this same issue with their heads posted on social media somewhere. I am using the GS Samurai Overkill now. Started to try one out last night on a doe, but decided to hold off for one of the bucks I'm after.

I see on the Aboyer site that their heads have a variety of Rockwell hardness. Which model Aboyer was that?

I've been shooting the black label GS Samurai for a few years now and have had good luck...shot the 150's for about 6 years and switched over to the 200s this year.
Then I saw the really good sale that GS had on their shafts in which they tossed in free Overkill heads. The Overkill are 54 Rockwell and the black label are 58 hardness. I have not shot anything with the Overkill yet.

The Abowyer's are the 200gr Boneheads in SS.

In my skin
4pcs of weedeater line raised the weight of black eagle outlaws from 410 to 625. I believe the arrows fly a little stiffer.
Would you please post a picture of this? Trying to get an idea of where you put it.

Getting into trad so noob question. Is there any issues with using broadheads that I used for compound on trad (ALL FIXED!!)? I have 125gr NAP Thunderhead, 100gr Montec, and 200gr Valkyrie Jaggers.

They are metal, sharp, and high $. Unless you’re going to Africa or a once in a lifetime, I wouldn’t even consider wasting my money.

Like most things.....it’s all about being able to say “I shoot.......”

I get what you are saying about the whole "I shoot..." deal but if a guy, esp traditional bowhunters, wants a fixed head that makes a big hole, that head and Simmons Treeshrks are great options.

Thanks for your input kbetts
My current concern I’m trying to get a feel for is the likelihood of breaking a shoulder at 40 yards with my current setup (640 , 342 IBO, . 29” DL) Perhaps some people have tried it with this larger cutting diameter head and can share their experiences . The last thing I want to do is “bonk” a shoulder at 40-45 yards .

And I apologize I realize this discussion is in the trad bow section and as such I will bring this to the appropriate location
