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!

I like the solid design of the montecs I took 2 deer last year with them, both complete pass throughs

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.

    • yes, took it this week, Monday, just off a bike path in SW Rochester that runs along the Zumbro river.     I was surprised to see it as well.    The bluebells and wood anemones and trout lilies were in full bloom, which is a couple weeks earlier than usual.      
    • Is that a recent photo Del? I was in the woods yesterday and found nothing north of Elk River. I did find this though. Bear?
    • Do people who have had a stroke find the lies better? It is hard to believe, but this idea raises scientific curiosity since the journal Nature published a curious study in the year 2000. According to the authors, those who have gone through this trance and have suffered a decline in the linguistic ability known as aphasia detect the 73 percent of attempts to lie to them. And they base their ability to interpret more acutely the gestures that draw the faces of their interlocutors Cellulite The rest of the people pick up the hoaxes about half the time.
      Please Suggest me I am waiting for your answers
    • Looks like Dryads Saddle aka Pheasant's Back to me.    http://minnesotaseasons.com/Fungi/Dryads_Saddle.html
    • Try the narrow channel on Enchanted Isle.  The shallow water holds carp and sunnies this time of year, giving you plentiful small action and the occasional larger fish to reel in.
    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
