    Unhappy Swhackers SUCK!!!!!!!!

    Anyone reading this may remember that I did a broadhead test on the 100 Grain Swhacker, a few months ago. At the time I was fairly impressed with the perpetration, and performance........well that has all changed!!.

    I went hunting with them....but I didn't check every broadhead to make sure they were sharp. The one I did the test on months ago was sharp....so like an idiot, I figured they all were ,...... WRONG!!!

    Someone posted that they had bought some and they were dull. I checked 2 of the 6 and they were sharp...the rest were dull as hell!!

    As you can guess the one that I shot a decent 8 point with was dull . I was fortunate enough to find the deer, but only because of my determination. The shot was a little far back(liver), but if the broadhead had gone all of the way through, I would have easily recovered the deer.
    The broadhead only went it about 10". The tip broke off, and all that it hit was a couple of ribs, on the way in. The broadhead stuck in the liver.
    Very little blood to track... for about 300 yds.

    I should have checked each and every broadhead......or maybe I should have listened to Thermodudes' advise. I was lucky this time....but the end result, even though it surprised me was that.......SWHACKERS SUCK!!!!!

    shoot fixed blades man, magnus, buy you a sharpener and keep them sharp, the serrated edge of the magnus buzz cut cuts like a knife, and they have a lifetime warranty

    Cool DZSMITH...You may be right

    I am not convinced that expandables all suck, just the Swhacker! I used an inexpensive expandable last year. Carbon Express to be exact.
    It worked really well......though the fixed blade Carbon express I tried, didn't.
    That being said. I looked at the Magnus and also the Phats...they both look good and worth consideration.....thanks for the input!!

    I've shot 6 deer with the 100 gr. Swhacker. 5 complete pass throughs and 1 was sticking out both sides. Averaged no more than 50-60 yards of tracking, besides one that I ponched and recovered the next day. I've seen good and bad reviews but have personally had all devasting wound channels.

    Have never had any problem with the 3 blade Muzzys , including getting it tuned to my bow, like had been said 100's of time, if its not broken, why fix it? Just sayin.
