So so do y'all put fresh blades on your broadheads every year or just replace them after taking a shot? I actually put a light film of oil on my blades before putting them up for the year. I just put some new blades on some older Reapers I had laying around.

I replace after shooting. I suck at sharpening anything. I use plain Chapstick on blades to protect edge a little.

LOL....I never replace a blade unless it gets too old to sharpen...My record to date is killing 5 deer with the same arrow and broadhead....just clean, sharpen and go...until a blow through breaks a blade on a rock.....

Usually replace after a kill. I will reuse if they look 100%, if they look good I'll resharpen and reuse. Rage blades are not very durable at all

I have tried to touch up replaceable blades like Slick Tricks or Reaper blades. I can't get them as sharp as they came from the manufacturer.

This is what I use for all of my broadheads. My wife easily sharped a few with this.....it is that easy, and it puts a good, consistent edge on blades.
