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.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
