Default Broadhead Question

What would be your choice out of Dirt Nap or Magnus Stinger broadheads and why? Thanks

Magnus. They’re sharp, they kill and they have a lifetime warranty.

Don't know about dirt nap but stingers are probably the best bh I've shot. They fly well and leave a nice hole. Like said above, send em in and get replacements. They are probably cheaper too.

They both are good heads. They both have the lifetime warranty. All personal preference after that.

Magnus stingers/Buzzcuts are made in USA. Dirt Nap are assembled here but the parts made overseas. I know because I talked to the owner early last year about this topic. I like buying made in the USA products when I can. I use Solid Legend's now but used Magnus heads a lot when I shot trad and I always had great success with them. Mike is a great guy and backs his products.

I make mine out of a ban saw blade attached to a 5/16 oak dowl rod. I just have to get a deer in front of me to park one in.

Have you tried iron will heads ? I shot solids for a time and they are good heads. But " chip" easily on the blades. The iron will is a lot like them but better made IMO. And they are made here. I still prefer German kenitcs over both, but they are not made here, obviously. Sorry didn't mean to side track ops question.

Stingers. They just flat out work. DN gave me some broadheads to test and there was like a 10gn variance in them. I shot one through a metal barrel and the bleeder blade made a bigger slit in the Ferrel so it kept moving and the blades didn't hold up

I will stick with Magnus products for the reasons above and they are a lot like the old Bear broadheads I started off hunting with. Dirt naps, we have one member that said he will not be using them again after his elk hunt. Check Goldsteins NM elk. http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...ight=broadhead
