Default Muzzy broadhead vs G5 Montec

I am considering changing from a Muzzy to the G5 for this season.

Recommendations?

Have both, used both, like both. I am shooting the Montecs right now because I got a hold of some 140 gr oddballs. If you shoot the G5's, I'd recommend sharpening them first.

I like the G5s. Fly really true to fieldpoints. But as said above, your gonna need to sharpen them right out of the box.

I have had no experience with either broadhead. I am now shooting Iron Wills and previously I exclusively shot SlickTrick Magnums.

However, oddly enough, on my recent moose hunt, two other hunters shot moose and never found them. One shot a Muzzy and the other was shooting a Montec. I don't know about the Muzzy, but the montec was definitely believed to have been a double lung pass through. Tracked for 2+ miles with TONS of blood, but never were able to find him. I felt bad for that hunter.

G5 Striker is similar to Muzzy or Slick Tricks. The replaceable blades are wicked sharp. I like any of them. Montec isn't sharp enough.

Shoot both. Killed with both. I like the resharpening factor of the G5s...but Muzzys are dang cheap enough to swap out the blades when they get jacked up. I vote stay with Muzzy.

I've shot both. I don't like either one. Go get some slick tricks.

I like the G5 Striker, but between the two you mentioned, Muzzy all day long.

Stick with muzzy. If it was the G5 Striker Id vote for that.
