    Default Muzzy's for practice?

    For those of you who shoot the Muzzy's do you use the practice blades or the real thing. Checking the impact of the ST 100's and the MX3's. Seems the practice blades are shaped differently and I would assume they would fly differently than the real blades. The ST's are pretty much dead on to the FP's but want to try the Muzzy'snto see hoe close they are.

    I don't shoot them much anymore but when I did I used the real blades for tuning.

    I use the MX3 and the practise blade is spot on.

    Well if nothing else makes my decision is the fact I can't get the darn things together, lol

    Replaceable blade heads have some good qualities. One is that you can replace the blades---DUH. Over the years when I have bought new broadheads (not often) I always buy a good supply of new blades. Then the ones that come with the ferrules are my practice blades. Night before season starts I put new ones in and keep the old ones for next year's tuning sessions. Other than tuning or checking arrow flight from year to year I do not practice with broadheads. If they tune and shoot fine then there's no reason to just keep on practicing with them. They're too hard on targets anyway. And most are getting rediculously expensive.

    I found no difference between the Muzzy practice blades and the real ones, although they do look differnt. That being said, I don't bother with the practice blades, but use the real blade for tuning, and then resharpen them, only takes a few strokes on a hard stone. Same old Saunder's broadhead stone that I used to sharpen the old Bear razorheads that I used to shoot. I've had that stone since the 1960's.

    Bear Razorheads? Man, you are old---like me. Does Savora strike a bell?
