Default Silver Flame Redline Broadheads

Anybody tried these yet?
I wouldn't expect them to be as good as the regular GK Flames but for aprox. 1/2 the price I'm thinking of ordering some.

I shoot the " real" ones from Marcus. But thought about giving these a try on javelina, but haven't ordered any yet. I know there reg. silver flame is no where near the quality of the German ones. And these being even less has me a little concerned, that's why I would try them on some smaller thin skinned animals first to see what they do ( how they stand up).

I've been a die hard stinger guy for many years but quality seems to be going down hill on them. killed 3 hogs and a doe last month 3 of the 4 stingers were bent on hog ribs. Never had any problems with them before. Looking at going after some bigger critters next year and want to try something a little tougher.
Just having a hard time spending $100 on 3 broadheads for the real ones

I might ask for some for Christmas. I really like a wide cut fixed.

Steel force still makes a good head. They have a 1.5Ē model too

Rylan shoots his two hunting set ups at 50 yards to verify the flight. One set up is about 650 and the other is around 765.

Yes. Tested the redline 125xl. It did a great job. I had slight edge roll on one side. Since I went through the leg. I can see where the blade slid across the bone. It will take very little work on the sharpener to fix.

My first test with them I shot a rough guess weight of a 50 lb hog. Head buried in the mud. That head had zero damage, but will require to be resharpen.

At this time my opinion it’s a great head for the price. It is not as good as there 440c silver flame, but it was not designed to.

There are more to come in the future.

Any flight issues or tuning issues with the XL?

I've been shooting the Carbon Express 150 Piledriver. Holds an edge really well, easy to sharpen and flies perfect. With a 1.5" cut and $24 for three they are affordable and deadly. 2 pigs and a deer so far . . .

Never heard of these, but sounds like another good option!

They are the real deal, once you shoot them you'll understand. The quality is bar none the best you can get for broadheads. They fly awesome and stay sharp after many shots. Not really necessary for just whitetail deer hunting but if you're targeting bigger game and/or want a head that will last like a good knife they are the ticket. For a fixed head they are what I shoot now.
