How to Choose a Broadhead: Points to Consideron Jul 15, 2012
Early on, all mechanical heads basically looked the same. Each had blades that folded up completely from the back toward the tip, and deployed in reverse upon contact. Mechanical heads like the NAP Bloodrunner 2-Blade were invented in order to provide at least some cutting surface in the event the blades don’t function properly. If you shoot a Bloodrunner into a whitetail or any other animal and the blades don’t work, you’ve still got 1 1/8 inches of cutting diameter slicing through hide, flesh, and vital organs.
If you want to see more of these, take the time to test-shoot your broadheads before opening day.
If you’re trying to decide which broadhead is best for your particular setup and the game you intent to hunt, the best advice is to test, test, test…..and test some more. Try different models on the range and in the woods until you find one that works the way you want it to. When you reach that point, you will have found your broadhead “soul mate”….and the next game animal standing downrange will be in dire trouble.
