    Cool Swhacker Broadheads

    I have been reading alot about the swhacker broadhead. I watched numerous Youtube videos, promos. and even actual hunting footage. it appears to be a devasting broadhead. Has anyone tried it? If so what do you think?

    I've never tried them, but I did look at them when trying ti decide on which mechanical head I was going to try for the first time. They looked good except the one thing that stopped me from using them was the fact that the head would be inside the animal when the blades deployed. I could be wrong but that's what it looked like to me.
    A little common sense goes a long way, unfortunately it's in short supply!

    For S&G's have a peek at the new NAP Killzone (video at bottom). Similar to a Rage/Swhacker design with a big 2 blade cut, rear deploy but they have a spring tension on them so no O-ring. Just another option if you are into the big cut 2 blades.

    Cool broadhead style

    Junior, this type of broadhead has a small cutting blade that cuts as it enters the animal, then fully opens once inside. From the videos I have seen on it , it looks to be a good idea. I was just interested in any real world experience with it. Thanks for the response though.
    I think I will research a little more before deciding.

    There was another brand several years ago that had a broadhead virtually the same as this as far as operation goes. Can't remeber what brand it was, but I heard good things about them. That's back when mechanicals were just starting to get popular, and I think the company stopped making them.
    The only bad thing I have heard about them is, plan on replacing the blades everytime you shoot an animal. I hear they bend easy, like the Rages.

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    Cool Swhacker rename

    I read online the company that used to make them was called Sonoran. According to a video I stumbled across, they weren't selling as good as the inventor had hoped. They redesigned the blades, which now are supposed to be thicker, and made in Germany. One of the videos, showed repeated use on plwood, with no visible dulling of the blades.
    The videos were really impressive. The local Martin dealer sells them. He said all of the guys that buy them love them. I just would like some first hand info. It would be nice to actually talk to someone that has used them.
    Thanks for the input!. Anyone that has actually shot them, Please!! let me know.
