for those of you who shoot rage slip cam broadheads, the ones with the o rings, what do you do with your broadheads after the shot. do you resharpen? do you replace blades? if you replace how is this done? how do you remove the blades?

I usually replace my blades. I drilled a small hole in my work bench to allow the center pin to be punched out. I took 2 roofing nails and nailed the blades to the work bench so the broadhead wouldn't move. Then i had to grind a punch down to fit the hole. Get the pin out, put new blades in and tap the pin back in. I have the new chisel tip now and I believe I saw they replaced the pin with a screw which will be much easier to mess with.

Lord, for that much trouble, I would just pitch them away or probably, not use them to start with.

If the blades aren't broke they will be reused. I've killed several deer with the same rage.

I inspect them and yes i have sharpened a couple of them with a miniature file i keep for such purposes. Some of them are too badly damaged to do that. Dicks sporting goods carries the replacement end tips and blades.These require a 1/20 of a hex head which i happen to have in my gun smith set.
