    IMO - all things considered, once the arrow hits the target (beyond placement), broadhead performance is the most important factor in determining how lethal the shot is. There are plenty of ways to save a few dollars but the last thing I would do is buy a bargain priced broadhead just because of the cost. Doesn't' mean you have to buy the most expensive - but I'm sticking with a main name manufacturer like NAP, Muzzy, G5, WASP, etc....

    the allen is known as a low quality brand. I've seen Nap and rage in walmart before maybe a little cheaper than some places but don't skimp on quality

    I would say if you have been practicing and keep the blades sharpened, a kill is a kill is a kill regardless of what broadhead you use!

    Just a guess, but if you belong to this forum, more than likely you have a nice bow setup. I know that I have around $1000 wrapped up in just my bow alone. That's not counting targets, arrows, release, stands, etc. I just think it's a feeble attempt to save money by buying cheap broadheads. Not saying they won't kill a deer, but I would trust a well known manufacturer when it comes to where the rubber meets the road, or where the broadhead meets the deer.

    I was however surprised to see Swhackers on the shelf at Wally World. Didn't expect that one.

    First...just being a member here does not constitute one owning expensive gear at all. Some of us use used bows...hand me downs or what some say are "entry" level bows (my Mission Venture would be one to some).That said the number one thing which either strengthens or weakens a broadhead is hunter ability. Allen has been around a very long time although I personally would use others I would be confident if they tipped my arrows because it's what I had.
    The Deer Alarm...an interesting article on re-examining how deer "think" and react.

    I said a guess, not a guarantee. I can say this because I read most people's signature, and most of them have a fairly new bow. Just an observation. Either way, skimping on $5-$10 on broadheads isn't where I would penny pinch.

    Some just dont see the point in spending $13 on bhs. Im one of those guys. Just like any bh if it breaks or is worn out we replace it. As long as allen bhs are sharp it doesn't matter what logo is on it.

    I buy'em they can fly as well as higher priced heads. I don't use them on deer but they work nicely on coons and ground hogs.

    I buy big name heads because I can afford them, and I like to play with new technology

    I will never understand why people will put so much thought and time into gear purchases and then go cheap on something as pivotal as a broadhead.

    Cheap broadheads do not perform.

    I got my Admiral here on the forum, I basically stole it from a kid or God was looking in on me b/c I got it for $200 and right now they are going from $300 - $500 on eBay. I'd never had a new bow before or never seen one, so when I got it, it was so short and narrow I thought I got ripped off and he sold me a kids bow!! lol. The only reason I shoot Allen's are because i've had proven success, and if the quality ever drops off then I'll consider switching brands. Until then i'll skimp on broadheads and not gripe so much when the wife buys the ridiculously fluffy tp lol.

    broadheads from walmart

    An Indian would have given you a squaw for a broadlhead like that!! They ate meat and only had knapped stone in the end of their sticks!!

    Jeez all of the deer i've harvested must truly be embarrassed when they are standing next to other deer in deer heaven, only to find out that they were harvested by a broadhead that WILL NOT perform...
