    Default Picked up some Carbon Express Troika broad heads!

    Picked up some Carbon Express Troika 100 Triple Threat for the daughter. She shot all 3 at 20yds. They were just to the right of the bulls eye. I adjusted the nock by turning it an 1/8" of a turn. They all hit bulls eyes all the way out to 30yards. No funny looking shots they all flew perfect. I think for cheap broad heads she will be just fine. If she misses and looses one oh well at $3.25 each.

    I picked up a pack at Wal-Mart. $10.97. The nice thing about them is not one of the blades is loose, they all fit very tight in the groove. They fly great and are very sharp.

    Great to hear. Did you square both ends of the arrow and still need to turn the nock? I have a fall away so I don't know how leeway I have for turning the nock?

    I have been so busy with school and stuff that we haven't done any broadhead testing yet. Even if I had the time the wind is such that I could only do a 18 yard indoor test. Did I mention I hate wind!

    I was thinking of trying some of these if I don't get time to BH tune my Thunderheads or son's MX3s.WM has both for cheap.

    I have had some broadheads close to how these look and I wasn't impress with the tests I did. And it was done shooting at foam. I found that the arms were weak, and the blades didn't open properly. That is one of the reasons I stick to fixed blades. But one way or the other they were cheap and fly great.
