Very nice \:\) —not many have ever heard of them, and fewer have seen them I suspect.

I won 3rd place in a National Broadhead Tournament in 1985 with those Razorback 5 heads. For many years, these were some of the best flying heads around but I usually took them out of the box and did some trimming on the cartridge to make them spin more freely.

As far as killing deer, they had less than an inch hole and were not very helpful on opening holes for blood trailing. If you put these through lungs, GREAT...but any marginal hits and you probably had a problem finding your deer.

My first archery equipment / kill was:

1999, public land in Pinckney, MI.
I killed a doe from a ladder stand with a Proline compound bow and some cheap fixed blade broadheads the I picked up a Meijer.

It was my second year bow hunting.
