They are. It has double vented blades, original Trophy Tip and they were able to do away with that dang rubber o ring with that blade locking system.

I posted early on this thread about the thunderheads, and I still like them, but I tried the Grim Reaper Carnifour this past season. LOTS of blood and short trails. I took my best bow buck this season with one. The Grim Reaper is a keeper for me.

I'll always have some Zwickeys. Jack Zwickey gave me a Swiss Corrugated File in 2003. That's what he sharpens his with.

I've shot off the last of my ozcuts, ended up losing them on arrows!
After losing a deer with them I've decided to switch.

Bought some 125gn st magnums keen to see how they perform this year

It'll depend on how the new bow tunes, but hopefully going to go with Slick trick vipers as the primary with swhackers as a backup.

I just started killing pigs with the Swat A4. I've killed 2. One I put a little far forward on the pig as he was quartered away slightly...but the head stayed in him and he was having a tough time dealing with that. As he hobbled along through the brush, I was able to put a few rounds in him with the Glock to finish him off.

The other night I shot one quartering to me and he ran 60 yards and piled up.







Pretty gnarly head so far.

I've shot NAP Thunderheads for years. They kill animals and they're tough!

I muffed a shot shooting broadhead at 30 yards. My broadhead target is 2 shot-out Rhinehart pig inserts on top of each other, which I put a metal hay bale band around to keep together.

The shot was wide/low and cut the metal band in 1/2, and then buried in the milk crate underneath.

I hammered the Thunderhead out, and when I spun tested it- it was still straight. The blades were not bent cutting a steel band.

Don't do this- but I'm putting new blades on and it goes back in the quiver!

I've had good luck with NAP Killzones and Rage Hypodermics.

The only thing I hate about the Hypos is the shock collar and how easy it is to trip the blades...bump your pants leg and it's opened. Snag it on a tree branch and it's opened.

Maybe I should just stop snagging it on stuff but I never had that issues with Killzones.

I do plan on trying out the ramcats this year. I've heard nothing but good things about them.

Still using 100gr Thunderheads. I think since '91. That's when I started shooting.

Interested in trying others. Just never had an issue with the performance of these.

Simmons Treesharks, or the now discontinued Rodger Rothhaar Snuffers.

Shot this bull with the Simmons a few years ago. He made it all of 25 yards, staggering the whole way!

I shot slick tricks for a few years, then swapped to ramcats last year and wow!!! I still love slick tricks but the ramcats mess some stuff up, almost to much carnage lol. I shot a buck the other day he dropped in his tracks like I shot him with a gun. Can't go wrong with either.
