What do you think of Steelhead Broadheads?

5 posts in this topic

I was thinking of shooting the 100gr steelheads this year I was hoping to get some first hand experience stories about these heads.

Has anyone ever tried the ones with the razor blade and if so how were they?

I've shot Steelhead 100's for about 8 years. I've had pass throughs on every deer I've ever shot with them and I've been really happy with them. I've probably run them through almost a dozen deer.

I've never used the ones with the little blade on the front, so I can't comment on them. However, I've never had a problem with their standard model, so I didn't experiment.

I shot them for one season, not the razor blade ones. They flew great! I shot 3 deer and an antelope with them, all went down in sight of me, all had NO blood trail. IMO there are some realy great fixed blades out there now that fly so good, I don't see the advantage to retactables any more.

I'm sure you'll hear all kinds of arguments both ways, just one mans opinion.

I've been shooting them for a couple of years and they work great. I do hate replacing the TINY LITTLE BLADES, however. I've got my eyes on SLICK TRICKS(reports) or Cabela's FX-3s(price) if decide to change....

Shot steelhead 100 for my first 8 years. They fly very true, best I have shot IMO. The draw back that made me switch is the blades never seemed sharp enough, and would get a "flat" or dull spot where the blades touched the ferel. I would have to try to sharpen the little blades or buy replacment blades. That may have gotten better is the last 2 years. sorry no expierence with the cut on contact version.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
