Atom has competition. I've, mm, got no words. Other than, isn't Cold "Steel" making something plastic about as bad as Kotex making aluminum ball bats? Where does it end?

My question is when is someone gonna make arrows like John Rambo shoots? He made a Vietnamese guy disappear with those. Now that's impressive.

Slicing holes in stuff.....boooooring.

I could honestly see em as small game heads, pheasant etc. But that's about it.


But I would love to see a bone test.

Some of the tests were stoopid. The plywood, steel and live pigs getting a pass through were better.

Why do people think they need to bend their wrist and let the bow fall forward about a minute after the arrow hits the target. He is doing twisting it on purpose. I see funny guys doing that at 3D shoots all the time. I guess they saw someone do it so they copied.

If you are really not gripping the bow and letting it fall away your wrist wouldn't change angles.

I guess I am in the minority. IF they fly right I could see a use for them to shoot rabbits, squirrels, coons, snakes etc...the kind of stuff I occasionally want to shoot at but don't really want to drill a $15 head out of my quiver into the ground for. It's not that I can't afford $15 but $1 sounds better.

As a side note Academy had G3 SGH's on clearance for $3 per 3 pack.

That's why you use small game heads like the G5, the claws cut good and it is very tough, grabs so the arrow doesn't fly off and very durable.

These are just plain stupid

With all the negative comments, I had to watch the video.

I can't even count how many times I have needed to shoot through chain mail armor and 22 gauge steel, and my regular "expensive steel broadheads" were just too expensive to shoot through both. Glad to know there is a broadhead that can get the job done, at a cheap price.

With this kind of arrow penetration I wouldn't hesitate to shoot a hog, deer, or East Texas Elephant.

Well, in all fairness, if Kotex were to make ball bats you could always loop the string around your wrist to keep the bat from flying out of your hands if you lost your grip. You gotta see the good in things, brother.
