Swhacker broadheads

10 posts in this topic

Any input on the Swhacker 2 blade mechanical broadheads?  I've got a buddy who just swtiched to them and while he hasn't used them on a deer yet he's been very impressed with their flight and accuracy compared to field points. In theory they look like they'd leave a large exit and do some serious damage.  I also looked at them on Amazon and they have overwhelmingly positive reviews.  Curious if anyone here has experience with them.

I have shot 4 deer with them with great results. 2" model . I recommend using a arrow over 400 grains at 60 plus pounds to help with pass throughs .  They fly great for me

I'm currently set up at 50 pounds due to a shoulder issue but may be able to bump it up a little by time the season gets here.  The shoulder is getting stronger each time out.  One of my concerns with them was regarding shooting them at a little lower draw weight as that seemed to be common concern in the reviews I've read.

The other broadhead I'm looking at is the Magnus Stinger 2 blade.  It seems to be a good option when shooting a little lower poundage.

I have shot just about all the top Broadheads out there and they have all seemed to have failed me on performance and lack of blood trails at one point or another and as of the last 3 years I have been using the NAP KillZone with tremendous success and massive entry and exit holes leaving massive amounts of blood. They do tremendous damage and are extremely durable and work flawlessly. I am shooting 68lbs with the newer Easton Ingexion arrow at 29 inches and 10.1 gpi. Below is your typical entry hole and exit hole are even bigger. Hope this helps.

There are so many options out there and its seems each one has their fans and critics.  Seems the Magnus Stingers get a ton of praise, as due Killzone and Muzzy.  Ultimately it will probably come down to what shoots best out of the individual bow but at $30 for a pack of 3 its tough to go out and buy a bunch to see what shoots best out of your individual bow. 

Right now I'm still leaning toward the Stingers but I'll look closer at the Killzone as they have also been recommended a few times.

Not to beat up the local stores but I buy my heads online , some as low as $1.25 each . My slicktricks were about $7 each . $30-40 for a pack is nuts . But I live about 50 min from a good store

I've been checking out Amazon for most of them and I've found most 3 packs of various heads starting around $20.  I'll probably go do the typical looking around at the stores and then go buy them online.  Although I may also just go up to my local bow shop and buy them, they'll be a bit more expensive than online but I'm ok with that if it helps keep a good shop in business.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
