    One product I know I'm personally excited to check out in a new micro fixed-blade head from NAP. Years ago I lived and died by the Nitron and felt it was the best fixed-blade head on the market. I killed a pile of deer with that broadhead and it never disappointed. Unfortunately they stopped making it a few years back, which caused me to slip into a great depression that I've yet to recover from. While I do love my Spitfires and Killzones, deep down in the cockles of my heart I've always been a fixed-blade lover.

    Well the spirit of the Nitron is being resurrected this year in the form of a new 1 1/8" 3 blade broadhead. I haven't personally seen it, but I'm told it's very reminiscent of it's predecessor. While it's not new or revolutionary and doesn't have any whiz-bang gizmos attached to it that spin around and slice a dozen holes in the target, I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve waiting to get my hands on this sucker.

    I killed a pile of deer with the Nitron. I intend on killing another pile of deer with the new broadhead so everyone will shut up about not getting enough penetration.

    There - I used it twice.

    Not getting enough penetration sounds like a personal problem.

    Let me know. I've been looking for a solid fixed blade setup. Mainly for a future Elk hunt (hopefully).

    After he gets to use it and if he likes it, is it just me or does anyone else picture Justin pulling a Elaine from the Seinfeld "sponge" episode?

    Interested in this new head to. NAP to me has always had the sharpest blades I have used. Right now Slick Trick or WASP drone is on the docket for me next year, unless this one looks more appealing. :tu:

    Sounds interesting. If I don't see a review by summer, I'll be sticking to my Spitfire Maxx's

    Sounds great. They make a good product.
    I wish it was a four blade head though as I've had a lot better effect with four blade heads.

    I hope NAP actually releases the hammer knockers this year too.

    Don't count on that. My understanding is that it's been shelved indefinitely.

    Really..... That looked like a great design. I guess they found a flaw they couldn't ignore. Thanks for letting me know.

    I'm pretty sure it was a patent issue they couldn't get around more than a design flaw.

    Still not sure why 3 blades rather than four. I've honestly yet to find a fixed 3 blade that out groups a solid 4 blade like my Slicks. I'll probably grab a pack of these depending on price just to try out though. I'm assuming they'll be offered in 125 as well?

    I'm sure there will be something else that people complain about. :tu:
