It is my go to head and I will use them until something tells me other wise!

I have never re-sharpened blades on any replaceable blade heads I have used in over 40 years of bowhunting so whatever the blades end up like, it does not matter to me.

SO, who is right?
The performance is top notch and killed dozens of animals with Ramcats. However I have over 30 Ramcats downstairs, at least 10 of them will be 13 grains off.

Sorry it is hard to read. The phone had a hard time adjusting to the light. As you can see the 125 grain weighed 112.6, some weighed 126. I also weighed a 125 grain field point.

Those look like the knockoffs dude. No ORing. Tons of Ramcat counterfeits out there.

I won’t shoot another broadhed with an aluminum ferrule. Steel all the way.

Default broadheads

i like heads i can resharpen myself because between my boys and i we will shoot 15 or 20 a year and these dang heads have gotten expensive. I find all the good 2 blade heads like stos,eclipse, zwickey all perform well from penetration with both compound and stickbows alike. the blood trail is a little better with 4 blade bleeders and so last couple years i have switched to the 4 blade zwickey eskimos and deltas and put my own epoxy inserts in them because my epoxy job is always better than the factory , no matter which brand. some of these nice looking heads above are just 2 rich for shooting deer for me. however they do look nice and effective. magnus makes decent head also. placement is most important but momentum trumps kinetic energy on penetration every time. have not had good luck with 3 blade montec woodsman and some of the other ones with replacement 3 blades in terms of consistent blood trails so quit using them. not a fan of mechanicals personally due to experiences on hunting elk in the rockies when i lived there and they first came out. i know they will do the job when everything is right just not my cup of tea. my 2 cents
