Here's a quick look at the new Hybrid from Grim Reaper. It combines the benefits of a fixed blade plus the extra cut of an expandable. I shot a few arrows and it flies with my field points, cuts a large entrance and exit and is very durable.

A great feature of the Hybrid is the fixed blade portion. Note that the back edge of the blades are sharpened. In the event you don't get a pass though, the blades will be cutting as they try to back out.

Entrance cut!

This is going to be one bad ace broadhead.

Interesting! Looks sort of like a take on the Bi-Polar broadhead.

doubt it will penetrate any better than most expandables but it does look pretty good. And the sharpened trailing edge is a plus. I doubt I will ever shoot them, but they look sturdy and very lethal.

Seriously catman? This thing is going to slice through deer like butter. I think it will out penetrate most mechanicals.

I would assume it will penetrate better than most other mechanicals .

The fixed blade portion makes a 1 3/16" cut. The deploying blades follow for a 1 1/2" cut. Total cut is 1 3/16" x 1 1/2". Can't wait to see how they do come late September.
