I got out and shot my new Ulmer Edge heads into my deer target. I can't wait to stick a doe with these heads.

is that a practice head or the real thing you were shooting at the target?

It's the real thing. Each pack comes with three set screws. You simply screw in the set screw into the head and the blades will not deploy. That's a great feature. The set screws on my scale weighed 3.1 grains each so no noticeable difference in POI.

Let me add in the pick of the broadhead above the practice mode set screw is in the head. It's the bottow screw.

Here is a pic of the blades deployed. It's a 1.5" cut rear deploying head with both the front and back of the blade having an edge. If you note the large holes on the blades, that is where the practice set screw goes when the blades are not deployed to keep them locked to allow one to practice with the actual head.

They look to be decent build. I've just now opened my pack of them. As for the accuracy in shooting...maybe a longer stabilizer would help ya hit those dots instead of shooting next to them ;-) haha

My blades were dull but I used a diamond stone to touch them up. They are a single bevel blade so according to Trophy Taker single bevel blades don't "feel" sharp but I spoke to Zach at Trophy Taker today. They were definitely dull. They are fully aware that their blade supplier had some dull blades in the initial release but they have fixed the problem and they will send a new pack of heads if you have the problem. I declined since I simply sharpened them.


There is another issue Trophy Taker is having. According to TT the replacement blades will not fit in some heads cause the original heads are a different spec than the new blades. They are correcting this issue by sending out a new pack of heads.

Yes these are issues but I think they are "growing pains". This head looks to be a winner.

No...the cut on the 3D foam insert is from the wings not the heads deploying.

The blades are held in place within the ferrule for practice by a set screw . The deployment wings are the only thing that contacts the target outside the ferrule , therefore saving the blade sharpness for game . Deployment is not an issue and won't be an issue wth this desgn . They are very well designed heads .

Radar,

What are your toughts on the way the blades pivot? Grim Reapers, Rage and obviously fixed blades do not pivot. is there a benefit with that feature?

Where can these be purchased and would they work with a crossbow?

Here are a few online vendors. First two appear to be the same place; one is the store itself and the other looks to be the store selling through their eBay account.

It will allow the blades to pivot around small bone striking one blade edge and not squandering KE on bone . I really don't see any disadvantage to the desgn .

That's what I was trying to figure out, that's a good size entry wound already even without having the blades deploy.

No...the rubber band sits in a recess in the ferrule to hold the blades shut. It serves no function except to keep the blades shut.

I just got an email from Zach Butcher.... I emailed him before I read this post & realized what was going on...
I have had a pack for a couple weeks & decided to open them & give them a fling..... Well, they were extremely dull..

I emailed him & he came back & copied another person on the email... He said they would take care of me...

I wonder what they will do.... We have only 11 days til bowseason, I would hate to wait for mine to get back to them & then the replacements mailed.......

I will go ahead and do that..... i did shoot them and they are dead on at 30 yards.... I was impressed with the flight, I just wish the sharpness was there.....
I was told that there was a sharpness guarantee and they would take care of me......I believe they would do it if I held them to it....

Do the guarantee and keep the heads. I spoke to TT and declined the replacement heads since I was able to sharpen my heads.

As season gets closer I might put the Grim Reaper in play. It's proven plus it has a 3 blade cut vs 2. The Ulmer is a great design but not sure of the benefit on whitetail at close range.
