Unique Broad Head Test
This guy has done some pretty in-depth penetration testing of many types of broad heads. I haven't broke the code on all of it but it is still fun to watch. It is in three videos so it will take a bit to watch them all. He said more was to come but I guess he hasn't got around to it yet. Bummer.
Sorry Sonny, no broadband for you. Just keep doing what you are doing, it's working good.
I can't wait for the last of the videos. For right now though, I am pretty happy with how my Wasp Bullets preformed. Thanks for the link.
Interesting but in the end...... meh.
What part let you down?
I was surprised the boards didn't break any blades off.

This whole thing came about because his forward opening BH failed him on an elk hunt. The blades folded all the way back to the arrow shaft and gave him a very small cutting diameter.
He uses masonite boards spaced at 1.5" apart to slow the arrow down. When questioned as to why he didn't use the scapula of an animal he said he wanted something consistent to test on all BHs to make it a fair comparison. He shoots a lot of BHs into the material to see which goes in the furthest but it's not quiet that simple. He has other things that fall into the equation because it seems that just counting the penetrated boards alone don't make it a winner.
I'm impressed with how tough all the BHs are. I have some NAP Thunderheads and they faired ok. The traditional old COC Magnus and the like didn't fair to well which surprised me.I also found it funny he didn't include the rage BHs.
Sonny, I don't want to spoil the video for you, but I guess the Spitfire had to be the sharpest since in the test, they did not open on contact. They finally opened on the second board. I would hate to have to punch through a board to get my broadhead to open.
