    Default Shuttle T's, magnus snuffer ss, or G5 T 3's

    Well I have been playing with expandables since moving to Kentucky from Idaho, as expanables are illegal for big game hunting in Idaho. I have detirmined that the Rage's were cool, and did the job but upon a pass threw the blades swung around and snapped the ferrule, kinda turned me off from the Rage, shot the NAP bloodrunners last season have no real complaint other than for the expansion of these they did not leave as good a blood trail as the Rage. This year I am looking at the shuttle t's, the magnus snuffer ss, and the G5 T3's. I like the shuttle t's beause you can replace the blades if needed, and I have heard good things about them already, I don't know what more to say for any magnus product, my only hang up with these is I bought some magnus snuffers years ago and never could get them sharp, don't want to deal with that again, and the G5 T3's another expandable to play with! I talk back and forth with Nick Mundt (bone collector) and he says its one of the best bh's he's ever used... Any comments on the bh's is appreciated!

    I remember reading that there is something different about the new Snuffers and they sharpen better. I like the warranty too. Hit a rock and bend them on pass thru? No problem, they are replaced no questions asked. I have a set of NAP Hell Razors that I bought before finding out about the Snuffers. Had I known I would own Snuffers.

    I had some buzz cuts before making the move from idaho to kentucky, M.I.A! Great bh's! I have a friend sponsored by Hoyt, he shoots shuttle t's and loves them! I have the original 125 grain snuffers, great bh but could never get them to take an edge! Thinking I might just get away from expandables all together again, I have shot regular muzzy three blades for as long as I've picked up a bow and they have always been reliable!

    Sharpening those Shuttle Ts looks like a challenge.

    I think I would replace the blades or pay a sharpening company to do so!

    I'll stick with the Muzzy 3 blade that I've been shooting for... well since I switched from Bear Razorheads, has'nt failed me yet, and the blade are easy to resharpen. Too much of a DIYer to pay someone to sharpen them for me! Take a look at my website, I make all of that because I could'nt find what I wanted.

    I am now back to shooting good ole muzzy 3 blades right now, but I like to test other stuff out, see what I like, whats hype and whats not. I really liked NAP razor caps, but I can't find them or replacements, anywhere! I shot the NAP version of the Rage, it was junk! Like a rage deployment system on a thunderhead ferrule! Rages did what they said they'd do but every one of them I shot a critter with, the bh was toast afterward. Cant see spending $40+ on broad heads, that are going to be a one time deal. Muzzy, magnus, slick tricks, thunder heads I've never had that problem with!

    First of all, why in the he(( would you move from Idaho????? I'd be living there right now if I could get the wife talked into moving there.

    I tried the T3's this season, liked them a lot. 3 of the 4 deer I took were with them and all 3 didn't go 70 yards, as a matter of fact I saw all 3 go down. Bloodtrails were awesome and the entry and exit holes were big. I liked the fact that the blades were exposed.

    To answer the move question, I couldn't afford to live in Idaho any more, the economy there was so bad, I as a HVAC technician, would have had to take a huge cut in pay to get another job when the company I worked for was going out of business, with a wife and three kids, I could not do that, I had a job offer here paying me as much as me and my wife made combined in Idaho, so I jumped at the opportunity. Now working for a company, that has almost doubled what the other company did. I miss Idaho! I hadn't really thought the whole hunting aspect through though!

    Man that really sucks being forced to move. Idaho is my favorite place to hunt hands down.
