    Just did a test of 2 different Magnus heads. Check it out. Hope it’s helpful.

    Loved this. Glad I have both of these. Even more sold on them after you testing.
    Also just subscribed to your channel and look forward to other tests you have done.

    I’ve shot a buck with the magnus black hornet and the next year shot one with the nap spitfire. Both from the same stand standing within a foot of each other, obviously different years but same place. Both shots were double lung shots. Same amount of blood from both and both deer ran almost the same difference. The deer hit with the spitfire ran maybe ten yards further.. in my opinion I’ll take the fixed blade without the possibility of mechanical error. Was crazy the blood trail was so similar giving the difference in cutting diameter. The spitfire did do its job and if your into mechanicals i would recommend them. But I think I will shoot a magnus again, gonna try the ser razor this year.

    I subscribed recently to your youtube channel and just watched this video. I have not tried these broadheads yet but am seriously considering it for next year. Great video.

    Why shoot a mechanical when these fly so well. I’ll never understand it.

    I'm really impressed with the black hornet ser-razor. Hits where my fid points hit out to 40 yards. Perfect. 125 grain. 600 grain taw.

    Yessir! I am having some accuracy issues but I dont think it is the arrows. 500, 550 and 600 grains all had the same issues. I need to fix my d loop pinch and see if that is the problem. But that magnus hit dead nuts. It has some noise but not any worse than slick trick.

    I love fixed blade heads and use them all the time in hunts. However there are a few reasons that a mech can be a good choice. First, for even longer shots or in heavier wind or more nerve filled situations; a good mech is even more forgiving due to the lower surface area. For western hunts in wide open terrain this can be important. Second, to make an even larger hole. All other things equal, a wider cut will produce a better blood trail. Narrower cuts can get plugged up while wider cuts tend to stretch even wider as an animal moves. For smaller animals like turkeys, Javelina, hogs under 150#, and smaller whitetails, pronghorns, etc, a big wide hole can make a significant difference in a quick kill. Some mechs are finding that sweet spot of being 1.5-1.75” wide and have very swept blades, allowing for excellent penetration on larger animals as well. And some mechs are proving to be more durable than most fixed blades. I’m not saying mechs are better, but there are some situations that they can be a solid choice.

    Any difference in the Stinger and the Killer Bee? other than the Killer Bee being a solid head?
