    Hopefully these bad dogs will be bringing down my first black bear in August :rock:

    I've done alot of research and tested a couple different fixed heads. I went with these because they are a NAP product, they have offset blades, and they have a larger cutting diameter for a fixed head.

    Now I have to look at them all day at work before I get to test them out at home. Is it 5 o'clock yet???

    Those should do just fine ;)

    I just took my first black bear with a 1-3/4" Grim Reaper. Passed right on through like nothing :D

    I just took my first black bear (300#) at 18yd with 100gr G5 Montecs...straight pass thru and when I skinned it, the rib adjacent to the entrance hole was cut 1/3 the way through and cracked. I was very impressed. Double lung shot that ran 40yds.

    Thanks guys! I got out and tested the head last week. They fly amazing!!! Out to 30 yards there was no difference from my field tips. I didn't shoot past that because I don't plan to in August. Also shot the head through a 3/4 piece of osb board at 20 yards. I had my foam target behind it and the broadhead exited out the back of the target about 3 inches. I was very impressed with the penetration and even more impressed when I examined the head. All blades intact, still semi-sharp, and nothing bent. Spin tested perfect afterwards. These are definately some bad little heads, nothing but the best from NAP.
