Has anyone tried the new toxic broadhead by flying arrow archery?
Thought about trying it just wanted to see what you guys thought.

A buddy of mine tried them last year and they are a "one and done broadhead". Yes, it will leave a hole and a good blood trail, but it was not any better than your standard fixed broadhead like Muzzy, G5 Strikers or Slick Tricks, that are cheaper by the way. He also felt that he didn't get as good of penetration as he was with his Muzzys, which somewhat makes sense with all of that surface area. He was quickly turned off as the blades cannot be resharpened and have to be replaced after each shot. He has his Muzzy's back on for this year.

Sounds like to me after what you said and some of the reviews I saw. I should just stick with what I have been using. Thanks

How did your buddy get to use them last year? They weren't available to the public till this year.

I believe you might be wrong—I think they were available about this time last year, but only directly through their website. I remember first seeing them and going their page and emailing the owner/designer and asking him if they could be sharpened and he told me no because it will unbalance the heads and that was a deal breaker for me. It could have happened over the winter, but I really don't think so because I wouldn't have been interested at the time.


As far as my friend, he got them through his employer, Mossy Oak, as part of a test/promo/bribe/perk/who the heck knows, and lives in Alabama which has a season that goes through the end of January.

They would be my last choice in a fixed broadhead based the design. I want more cutting diameter , blades that can be sharpened or replaced easily , and a more durable design that will hold up when striking bone .

I still want to get reviews from the field. I replace my blades currently on any broadhead I shoot if it goes through a deer so with me there wouldn't be any change replacing blades after shooting a deer.

Why don't you re-sharpen them yourself instead of buying new blades? In most cases, it doesn't take much to get them sharper than the factory edge anyway, considering the factory edge on most are questionable to begin with.

With the price of replacement blades at $18.99 , They are almost as high as new fixed blade heads from some , more established companies !
