Stopped using them after 50 deer kills.

GREAT heads!

I used them for a while. Good broadhead for sure and the reason I switched to muzzy probably does not apply to hunting. I was practicing and my release died (did not realize at first that was the problem) and hit a concrete wall with 100 gr. thunderhead tipped arrow. The broadhead exploded and there was no evidence (none at all today, this was many years ago) of a broadhead hitting the wall. I was given some muzzy's and had one on an arrow to try. My release would hold til I got to full draw and then let go, you could not safety it, I was pulling 80 lbs at 50 percent let off. I also shot the concrete wall with the muzzy. To this day there is still a muzzy in the wall. Impressed me.

I killed 6 deer with thunderheads last year, and 3 of those deer were with the same broadhead.

Seriously?

If I ever decide to hunt concrete walls, I will use Muzzy.

One more thing , my field points are very strong and could penetrate concrete , but that does not make them reliable , cutting heads , that kill game quickly .

Can't you read? I guess I need to explain, I said probably does not apply to hunting, but since you need the extra explanation, I am the world's greatest concrete hunter. I kill my limit every season.

Radar I don't ever shoot or hunt with field points. Maybe that works good for you. Muzzys with new blades are more than good enough. I have killed several does shooting them almost head on and my arrows exited the back of the deer, complete pass thru and my best buck with a bow ever from the ground was at 42 yards from the ground, shot quartering to me through the front shoulder, exited through a back rib and stuck in the ground, walked about 20 steps and fell over. Field dressed 180 lbs. I will stick with my muzzys.

I like thunderheads but they have come apart after a shot. my blades may be beat up after a shot (I always hunt with brand new blades) but the muzzys have always been intact.

I was being sarcastic about field points . My point was , just because a head can penetrate concrete , and another will not , doesn't really make that a better head . I shot Muzzys for years with great results . I still have some in my broadhead box . I prefer lower profile fixed blade heads such as my G5 Strikers and Slick Tricks these days . I do like Muzzys better than the Thunderheads I shot for years , and do agree they have better blade retention . I was pulling your chain regarding the concrete wall . ;\)

HH,
I was also being sarcastic, must be an old person thing.

Actually I love Muzzy heads. They are great heads. And decently priced.

But I decided long ago I like killing LOTS of deer every season. LOTS.

And between arrows and broadheads, licencses and extra tags, I have tried to MINIMIZE my cost per kill.

THis is why I switched to Magnus.

I would never sacrifice quality for price.
I want a great flying head with a super scary sharp blade that kills deer.
THen I want this for a good price.

Free is a good price.

I don't have any stock or interest in their company, but we have killed LITERALLY HUNDREDS of deer now with these heads, and they work GREAT!!!

And the company is even BETTER.

Just pack them up, and send them in for a FREE replacement.

I really do want to help get the word out about this company.
It has been very good to us.
