Not sure what it does that a Slick Trick canít do. Thatís a lot of cash for a BH.
Those German Kinetics were or are pretty spendy too but they were no where near that price.

I saw a 600gr monstrosity that was like $200 ea...

I'm thinking of switching to Valkyrie broadheads as they are designed to not be consumable... as soon as I stop losing arrows. lol

Imagine how it would feel screwing one on to go shoot it for the first time and it flying like a duck.

Wow.

I have some carbon express xt-4s in my quiver that look exactly like those! I’m sure there’s a quality gap, but the xt-4s will sharpen up and shoot through deer for 20$ per four pack!

I shot solids for a time when they were 70.00 for three. Then the guy sold the company to the same people that own elite bows ( who ever that is)and they continue to raise the price. At 70.00 I thought they were at the top of what they were worth. Brittle, and blades nick ( chip) easy. Iam back to shooting German kenitcs ( another expensive head, but I believe they are worth what they cost at this time) and exodus, for an all around reasonable priced broad head.

Really good Tuffhead two-blade broadheads are only $65/three pack. Also, just got a three pack of VPA broadheads for around $40.

Both seem pretty reasonable to me for quality broadheads.

I stumbled across these a while back. Couldnít believe my eyes when I saw the price but I guess for a solid and well built broad head, youíre gonna have to pay.

Iím hearing from a lot guys shooting Iron Will. I ordered one head to test it out and they are crazy sharp and durable but $39 for 1 bh makes me cringe at the idea of losing one.

I was shooting them for awhile, but I bought them used on Archerytalk. I sold the six I had last fall for more than I paid 2 years earlier. They are great heads, and I like fixed blades I can resharpen over and over, but the Solid's are way too expensive for me to justify buying now.

Why not? Whatever the market will bear. Too expensive for my blood.
Will a $225 Savage Axis kill any different than a $10,000 drillings?
Muzzys at Walmart or these Bugatti Broadheads.

Default Most expensive broad heads out there $129+

I have been shooting German Kinetic heads ever since they were the only expensive heads out there. My friends all said I was nuts, but I wasnít, and now I pretty much have a lifetime supply of them. GK heads are the sharpest heads on the planet out of the box, and tough as nails. Iíve lost a few over the years, and hate that when it does happen. The GKís are tough as nails though, and in over 10yrs of shooting them at all kinds of critters all Iíver the place, Iíve only ever broken one. Now there are plenty of heads out there even more expensive than GK.

I have 6 solid heads. They are not the ones in that link, but I got them new, and there is no way they are sharp enough out of the pkg to hunt with. Iíll just stick with the tried and true GKís, and if I want to buy something I have to sharpen when brand new, just go with my Magnus Stingers!!! Oh yeah, and the Stingers have an unbeatable lifetime warranty that they stand behind 100%.

$129?

Do they tackle the critters and field dress Ďem right there? That would be Ďbout the only way I could justify to myself spending that kind of cash on broadheads.
