Default Grim Reaper

Man, I am not sure what Grim Reaper did, but I am done with them. I used to absolutely love their 2" whitetail special. Dang thing would open a stupid big hole and turn a marginal shot into a money shot.

They fixed them I guess. They fixed them so they no longer open. Good work Grim Reaper. Now the dang things turn a money shot into a marginal shot.

What the hell were you thinking?

If you've got older ones, hold onto them. The new ones suck.

I don't shoot them anymore, but I think the new ones are designed to be harder to open in order to stop them from opening prior to contact. However, I can see where this may cause issues opening at all. I like my 1.5" Ramcats now!

Crap I just bought some new razor tip 1 3/8”reapers today, I’ll compare them to an older one and see if there’s any difference.

If you take the new Pro Series Grim Reapers out of the package and sit in front of the TV one evening and open and close each blade 25 or so times each, they open just like they should. I did this with my CarniFours, and I put them back in my quiver. I just hate it when a company fixes it so it's broke. No way anyone should have to do that with a new pack of broadheads.

I bought some fatal steel 1 1/4 & found them hard to open also. But I seen they had 2 wire washer type dodads under the spring. Took one of wire washers out & opens a lot smoother & easier.
