    I have had great success with them. Shot 3 deer and 1coyote last fall with them. Coyote and 2 bucks went less than 30 yards. One went 100 yards with a weak blood trail due to a high shot. My fault wish I could blame something else.

    No three blade broadhead sharpened on a flat stone will be as sharp as a replacement blade head - included angle is, well, more broad.

    Killed a bull in 2014 with a G5 Montec, complete pass through at 43 yds. Watched the bull go down within 30 yds.

    Because they are stainless, you have to work the edge a little more than carbon steel to get them sharp, its a metallurgy thing...

    My go to's are Wac'em.

    Realistically, I almost consider broadheads as disposable objects at this point. Don't get me wrong, I still buy replacement blades, even for my mechanical heads. But if you think about all the crap we spend money on when it comes to hunting that is truly a "one use" product... fuel, scents, thermacell refills, batteries for everything, scent spray, the list goes on... why would I skimp on the one thing that actually does the job? I feel every animal I shoot at, at least deserves the sharpest blades I can get and not sloppy seconds. Doesn't that animal deserve a $12 broadhead?

    I shoot G5/Prime bows, but this is plainly not a "fan boy" response concerning the Montec head. I tried them and found them wanting. They did not get as sharp as a NAP Hellrazor or Snuffer SS, plus I had one come apart when hitting the opposite shoulder of a deer. Went in as a 3-blade and came out as a 2-blade. As others have related, I would recommend a TT Shuttle-T, NAP Hellrazor, Magnus Stinger/Buzzcut over the Montec.

    I used them last year. Shot a deer and had a good blood trail to follow.

    However, when I got my new bow, I couldn't get them to tune and had to switch heads.

    I'm not knocking the Montec. It's just one of those things.

    Batting 100% with the montec. I wont be changing anytime soon. And I was referred to this head by someone who has a lot of experience tracking bears in Canada. I have not shot a bear with them, but he said the bears shot with montecs were the easiest to find.

    Agree with not being able to get them sharp. But have no complaints as to flight.
