Question about G5 Montec broadheads

13 posts in this topic

I was just trying to see how people like them for accuracy and also what kind of a blood trail they leave and are they durable?

Goldtip,

I have been using the G5's for the last 2 seasons and like them alot. They fly right and leave a big hole. I really have nothing bad to say about them!

If I shot a compound, these are the heads I would shoot. I recomend them. I have tuned some compounds for them with ease. they fly like bullets and leave good bloodtrails.

Just like the Snuffers I shoot, Only smaller and with MUCH less work.

the G5 striker broadheads are better than the montecs i believe. replaceable blades that are diamond sharpened, not forged like the montec. so, much sharper. fly better too.

I have to respectfully disagree. Learn how to sharpen a 60 degree broadhead like the Montec, Hellraiser, or Snuffer SS and you'll have a blade that is absolutely wicked sharp. If you do a search for "BB" and "Snuffer SS" you'll find a tutorial on how to make them scarey sharp.

That being said, I am shooting Strikers this year- just easier to replace the blade than to hand sharpen it.

I have only used Montec broadheads, but they seem to work great.

I arrowed a deer last year , right in the heart, and is made a perfect X mark right through muscle. Very clean, fast kill.

Now if I could only do that shot again-

I've taken 6 deer in the last two years with Montecs and dont have any complaints. Every one has been a clean pass through with a good blood trail, or the deer dying within my sight. I also X-ed the heart of a doe with one and it really is amazing was a nice clean hole it put through the heart. I wouldnt say that their durability is great, but probably better than average.

Used them last year for the first time, they seem to fly true and put them down too. I am shooting them again this season!

Ok, of the 6 deer I have taken with these, I have only been able to re-use one of the montecs. One hit bone in the deer and bent fairly signifcantly, one stuck in a sapling behind the deer and bent one of the blades, a third stuck in an offhand shoulder and was unuseable when I retreived it (again bent). The other two hit the dirt and got beat up pretty severly (not the fault of the broadhead, just a fact of where the arrow ended up)

Thats one of the downsides of a fixed blade vs a removable blade.

Dont get me wrong, I absolutely love Montecs and won't shoot anything else, but I havent had great luck being able to reuse them so far.

    •   Hopefully the trend towards "the other white meat" will bring down the cost of beef brisket
    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting.
