125 Shuttle T's ...beast broadheads, period. Devistating.. Elk, Bears and Whitetails..
Killzones and Slick Trick Grizztricks
Both great heads for whitetails, for elk I would be leary for sure.
where was the hit? Pass through? How long did you let it sit? Height you were sitting (angle of shot makes a big difference)? Just curious to all these...and no I don't use Muzzies.
Muzzy Phantom 4-blade
NAP Hellrazors and NAP Bloodrunners both 125 grain. Never got a shot at an elk but took deer with both heads, any head put in the right place will get the job done.
200 grain vpa 2 blades
Rage Chisel with great results.
Did he find the buck he claims the blade didn't open on? Was it a pass through?
If he put a good shot on it and only one blade failed, that deer was dead. There is still a min of .75" cut or so. I find these stories so hard to believe. Not saying he is intentionally lying at all. It's just impossible without seeing the cut channel to say that a blade didn't open. I have in test had other heads open on impact and close on exit but, leave a definite blade open cut on exit. I would have sworn it didn't open until I looked at the cut. Tested Rage 2 Blade Chisel tips on a pumpkin this year. It takes much less force to penetrate that deer hide and they opened every single shot from 15yd all the way out to 75yd with only 390 grain arrows. NAP Spitfires also had the same results.
Nap killzone. Toughest broadhead I've ever shot. Killed 6 deer and a pig with the same broadhead before it broke a blade. Quick fix. And they fly so well out to long range. Love them. Can't wait to shoot the killzone Maxx this year.

Wasp 100 gr. Boss SST 3 blades.
I'm not a fan of mechanicals on elk. But on deer they usually do pretty good.
Montec 100 grain. Last year I shot the muzzy mx4 and didn't care for them at all.
Thanks all. This year I'm thinking of Viper Tricks 125 or Shuttle T 125, jury still out so far. (grin) I'm leery of the T's they appear soft & tinny, I'll shoot them & see how they perform?
The ferrules of the shuttle t's are very strong, as are the blades. The weak point is the blades leading edge. Very weak and gets trashed, dinged, bent easy.
Those were my experiences, though. I do like their terminal t lock a lot

Yes, I found the blades to be very secure in the ferrule, it's the blades themselves I do not have a lot of faith in. (grin) They feel very tinny. The Viper Trick on the other hand is built like a rock, maybe I should have never had both in my hand at the same time! (grin) Thanks.
Fixed Blade Montec's ...... Thinking about swapping over to rage next season.
100gr NAP Killzone........shot my first deer with it Dec 2nd. 27 yards broadside from my ground blind, double lung......broke a rib going in and coming out, found my arrow about 12 feet past the point of impact.
220 grain single bevel Outback Supremes.
I've been shooting 100 grain 4 blade Muzzy's for the last 6 years or so. I've taken moose, elk, deer, antelope and hogs without any problems. This year my son asked me to try the Killzone 100 grain. I shot two deer and an antelope and they worked perfectly. If they don't open (which is highly unlikely) they still have a cutting edge that will do the job. Tough broad heads for sure. I sharpened them and am still using them. I didn't have to make any adjustments to my bow either. They shot just like my Muzzy's and field points. They made a huge wound as you can imagine. That said, any broad head put in the right place will do the trick. I like the Muzzy and KZ because they shoot well and are tough heads. The Muzzy's are inexpensive and I just replace the blades.
Rage 100 grain 2 blade...love them. Also NAP Thunderhead 100 grain...those are the best fixed blade I have found. Also the Rocket Meet seekers are nice.
