Default Broadhead Prices

Seems like all of the companies have collaborated and decided that $40 per pack is the market price. I just can't bring myself to value a broadhead at $12-15. Anyone found a decent broadhead for less than $10 each?

I went to Walmart about 2 weeks ago and cleaned up on NAP spitfires and Schwackers for $9/pack. There’s deals out there just have to find them.

Muzzy 3blade with trocar tip and replaceable blades. Blades bend but easily replaceable and theyve cut, penetrated and flown well for me.

I was just shopping Nanooks at $119 for a 3 pack. Tough to swallow but I think it the way I’m going to go.

I talked to a guy the other day that has like 20 kills with one nanook. So Iím guessing as long as you donít loose or break on rocks. You should have it for a long time.

On our lease you are just as likely to ruin a head on a shot as not. Rocks grow better than the grass. I'll use an expensive head on a trophy buck. Even doe. Pigs get knock offs.

Ya walmart has Allen brand and I have killed plenty with them but they are one and done I have reused my PX2's many times so in the long run my $30 broadheads have already paid for themselves.

I only use a broadhead once and hang it on the wall. I hang the arrow on the wall too. It gets pretty expensive it is what I have always done.

It's hard to beat the Zwickey Delta 4 edge at $22 for a three pack. The Eskimo 4 edge is even a little less expensive. I sharpen the pint to a tanto/chisel tip, but I have never had one fail.

YES - look at the Blood Therapy OCD broadheads. They can be found for $10/each and have excellent reviews. I use them myself and have put away the G5 Montecs. I've killed three with them this year, with 2 only going 30 yards, and the other going about 100 yards with an excellent blood trail.

If I spend $x,***, on a bow $*** on arrows, $x,*** on a lease as well as numerous other things. The last thing I'm going to skimp on is corn and broadheads. The cost of those 2 things are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. I understand cheap broadheads for pigs if you're shooting 10 a month, but I don't even re sharpen heads for deer. I will pay whatever I have to for the best heads I can get. I'd hate to skimp by on price, just to lose a animal.

Being able to properly resharpen a broadhead is a great skill to have. Too many people can't properly sharpen a knife. I would rather hone a head to perfection and reuse it if it isn't damaged beyond use. I killed two bucks in the same day last season with the same head. Both bled profusely and died quickly.

Yes the average price for the average broadhead is going up substationaly, I have been using above average price heads for a few years now. German kenetics, iron wills, and for a period of time solids. So 40.00 is not a bad deal for a good set of heads. In this price range I prefer exodus for a fixed head, rage for a mech. Midway U.S.A has rage extremes on sale for 15.99 a pack. ( murder on javelina) right now if any ones intrested.

I started this thread hoping that someone had a secret about finding deals on broadheads but it seems like my observations are continuing to be confirmed. The new average price for a major manufacturer broadhead is about $10-15/head. I'm certainly more budget-conscious with my current return to bowhunting but I don't want to sacrifice quality. I passed on the Chinese "Rage" broadheads for $20/dozen because I have more respect for animals and ethics than that. I purchased the Rage heads on sale through Midway USA and hope they will last a while. As other mentioned, many broadheads end up being messed up beyond repair after the shot.

For those of you buying those super expensive heads, hat's off but I won't be joining you. Those prices are insane!!!!
