Default SEVR Broadheads

Happened across a new broadhead that i think will be really neat and im interested to try it out.

2.1Ē cut, rear deploying like a rage, but made from Titanium and the blades lock and pivot when they hit bone instead of stopping or having to crush/cut bone. Very interesting. What say the Green Screen?

Should come out to about $14 a piece. Right on par or a little better than Rage

From the video on the website, it’s an improved ulmer edge. Seemed like those heads were liked on here

I’ve been waiting for the new ulmer edge and missed that these were the ones. I’m not sure about that pivoting design but may have to give these a try.

My thoughts as well. I shot the original ulmer edge. Good head a flew great but the blades were a single bevel and never felt sharp. I did kill animals with them though. These are interesting though.

And if you buy more you start to get 1 free after 6, and 2 free after 11, so it gets a little cheaper yet.

I'm curious how you unlock the blades to shoot again. They look worthy of shooting. A new blade that doesn't look hokey for a change!

If you like that design, you might want to check out the VIP Veteran broadhead. The blades are extremely sharp, so sharp that they are the sharpest broadheads I've bought and I've been bow only for over 30 years. Here is a link to them https://veteranip.com/product/the-veteran/

I mean Iím not throwing shade but you could just cut to the chase and shoot a 1-9/16Ē fixed cut Simmons and be done with all this stuff.

If all we were talking about is cutting diameter youíd be right. Iíve never seen a 2Ē fixed blade that could remotely touch the flight characteristics of a low profile mechanical like this. If that was possible, no one would make or shoot mechanical heads.

Itís all about the the right arrow and the right tune.

And to your point Iíve never seen a mechanical that could remotely touch a fixed two blade in terms of penetration potential, mechanical advantage and reliability. Donít drink the Kool-Aid.

None of that does anything if you donít hit the target...

I bareshaft tune my rigs and have no issues getting great arrow flight, but a 2Ē fixed head is going to get pushed around in the wind quite a bit. Thatís the point of a mechanical for me. Great flight in all conditions and a big cut. Theyíre also a little more forgiving to shoot.

I also shoot fixed heads, have nothing against them especially when I have . But when I want to be able to shoot long range, might have wind to deal with, and want to make a big hole, itís time to grab a good mechanical. Itís not about koolaid its about picking the right tool for the job.

If your arrow is tuned correctly a 2 in fixed is not going to be pushed around. But you have to know how to tune a set up for this type of head.

This tune includes moving foc around. Then adjusting fletchings to 𝖢𝗈𝗇𝗍𝗋𝗈𝗅 the head. This is all part of tuneing. Most do not know nor do this.

I know and do those things, and Iíll still contend that no large fixed head flies as well as a quality mechanical at long distance in the wind. The reason for that is no mystery, look at the horizontal profile of the arrow which is what the wind is affecting. Adding more fletching will help to keep the broadhead from taking over the arrow flight, but it just makes the wind drift problem worse.

You cannot tune a bow in such a way that the physical profile of the arrow becomes smaller.

Mechanical heads have less surface area for the wind to effect, and require less fletching to steer them. That means it is possible get good arrow flight with less wind drift, making it easier to hit your target.

Back to the sevr heads... Iím going to try a few. Ordered some trypans as well. Testing a handful of heads to see what comes out on top for me this year. I had high hopes for the new ulmer head, but Iím really not sure about that blade angle or the pivoting function.
