  • Swhacker Broadheads

    I was just wondering what everyones opinion is on the Swhacker broadheads. The videos ive seen of them look like they beat any mechanical broadhead made as far as penetration and stability.

    I'm a MUZZY man myself. Ive been shooting the 4 blade 90s for years and love how strong they are and they fly pretty good but the 1 inch cutting diameter is what I would like to change. But no fixed broadhead that I can find worth a Da-- that cuts bigger is worth trading my Muzzys for. Thats why I was considering a Mechanical to get more cutting diameter.

    BUT, Im not sure about the 2 blades on the Swhacker. I like at least 3 myself. It just seems it would be better to have 360 degrees of cutting diamiter to me instead of 12 oclock and 6 oclock. And I know with mechanicals you lose penitration too. Any opinions would be great!

    Broadheads
    They may work but I am just not a fan. I do not like forward deploying broadheads and I don't want to have to heat shrink the little rubber band on the broadhead. I would rather use the rages than the Swhacker. My personal favorite is the Red Head Gator from Bass Pro. I have killed plenty of deer as well as a turkey, a bear, and other varmints using this head. Super tough and sharp. There are no rings or bushings of any kind. It is 2 blade but I love it. As long as they make them I will use them. They are $30 for a 3 pack so they are a little cheaper. Also, 3 companies this year(NAP,Trophy Ridge, & G5) all came out with new broadheads that pretty much work the same as the Gator. Just read the reviews if you don't believe me on bass pro.....

    Muzzy
    My .02 MUZZY!!! Proven performers year after year and I have seen them Bust shoulders on both sides!! I tried the mechanical heads when it was the newest trend but Being a Maintenance mechanic I know first hand that ANYTHING mechanical can and will eventually fail and usually at the worst time...Like Bearice said...The MX3 will drain'em like pulling a Plug on a Boat if it gets put where it needs to be... I took 3 does a few years ago with the same exact Muzzy Head before I missed a Yote and ruined that head on a Rock...There's going to be new Heads every year but I'm not 1 of those 'If it aint Broke, Fix it till it is!!!' Kinda guys lol

    I thought about changing to the MX3 muzzys but I just have too many 4 blades to change just for a quarter of an inch difference in cutting diameter. Plus you only get 3 broadheads where as I can get 6 four blades cheaper on Ebay lol. Im probly gonna stay with my 90 grain blades that cut an inch and be happy.

    I just cant see buying mechanicals, 3 broadheads for 30$ that im gonna probly have to replace the blades on every time I shoot something with them. Like you said GT, ive shot 3 and 4 deer with the same Muzzy in one season. I love em, and im sorry I doubted them LOL. Thanks Guys for all your imput on this matter and good luck this season.

    Just Got your text LMBO!!! I like them but Not that Much yet LOL...Just curious as to Why you shoot a 4 Blade? I could NEVER get a 4 Blade Muzzy to Fly? With 3 Blades I would Line the blades up with me fletching and they would fly pretty true. The Last 100 grain Muzzy I bought were from Walmart and ...You guessed it...Marked down to $6 LOL!!!!!!

    @ Limb hanger- I understand what you are talking about but $30 for 2' cut mechanicals is cheap. I have shot a dozen or more deer with them, a bear thru the shoulders, and a turkey and I have never had to replace but one blade. They are easy to re sharpen. However I usually just buy new broadheads. I have never used Muzzy's but I know plenty of people that do. I had thought about trying the MX 3's. I am sold on the gators though. If they work for you and you are satisfied then let em' fly lol....
