    A friend has been talking up these g5-t3 he hunted with last year. However they are pretty spendy, more than I am willing to pay for a broadhead of any kind. Decided I'm going to upgrade my arrows this year and I'll stick with my Magnus stingers and their LIFETIME guarantee. Can't find a mechanical broadhead with that. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with mechanical broadheads and I'm sure there are alot of them out there that work great. Perhaps down the road I may decide to give some a try.

    I appreciate all the feedack from all of yall. I think that I'm just going to have to pull the trigger and spend 40 bucks and try a trio of these things and make my mind up for myself. I may end up shooting Muzzy's for the rest of my life, who knows. i guess that's why I love this sport, so many things to tinker with.

    I shoot a Carbon Express F15 fixed blade from day one it hit like a dart. And I never had to tune. It hit where my field points hit. Glad I removed my field points. We've shot muzzy, strikers, etc etc. It is all preference.

    just remember to get pics of the entry/exit wounds you get with those,Hutch. And pics of the head afterwards. Actually,that would make a good sticky. Broadhead performance..

    I have gone back and forth from fixed to mechanical the last few years. Shot a huge buck with the Slick Trick 100gr. Magnums, went 70 yards and piled up. Shot a average weight buck last year with the Rage 2 blade 100 gr. It went about 80 yards and piled up. Also shot a big buck a couple years ago with the Shuttle T-lock 100 gr., and it went about 60 yards and piled up. Of the 3, I'd say the Rage made a VERY slightly larger hole, but was unuseable after the one shot. The Shuttle T-Lock came in second for exit hole size, and was still razor sharp after a complete pass through. The Slick Trick was still a huge exit wound, but the edge of a few of the blades were fairly chipped after the shot. All the shots were double lung, no shoulder hits. All 3 fly very well from my bow, so flight isn't a consideration. All 3 had very similar exit wounds, so that isn't a worry. I'm gonna stick with the Shuttle T-Locks for their durability and performance. Not sure what it is about their design, but they fly very true, and leave an exit hole you can put your fist in. That's plenty good for me. Taking them on a Wyoming mule deer hunt this fall provided I draw a tag. First time hunting muleys, and I'll trust those broadheads.
