Fly great. Can get them to hit with your field points very easily.
Penetration, depends on what you're hunting. I wouldn't hesitate to use them (if I couldn't find a Muzzy!) for deer but wouldn't shoot big hogs or other 'big' game with them.

Like most anything, if you put it where it is supposed to go they work fine.
Like any broadhead also, stick a bear or big deer in the shoulder and it will not impress you very much.

I looked at these this week, they are awesome looking heads! I probably buy some and see how they fly.
But I bought some Muzzy 3 Blade 100 grains today.
If you can't work em in close and git em in yo face, don't bother takin the safety off!!!!

I was looking at using these heads myself.
I have been looking for information on them and so far they look good. They are tuff. Also I seen a penetration test and they did very well. I seen some articles in Bow and Arrow that talked well of them.I've heard they fly good also. I want to try them myself this season.
Hope this helps,

Last year I took a little 7pt with my shotgun in southern NY. As I was skinning him out I found another hole in his hide that was healing over. As I boned him out I found a 125gn steelforce aginst his spine. The head was bent around at the tip.
I do not know the situation of the archers shot? Did the arrow hit with the force to bend it but not penitrate the spine? Was the shot to far and the movement of the animal bent the head? Looking at the entrence hole the shot seems to have come from above, treestand or distance lob?
I was thinking of changing to cut on contact broadheads for my hunting. I do not think I will try Steelforce.

I also am trying steel force 100g, one of my freinds talked me into shooting it into the black hole (archery Target) it went all the way through and stuck in the ground at 20 yards. the blades afterwards were still sharpen ehough to slice my finger. it also hit right where i aimed. i would deff recomend buying these and jsut trying them out.

I have used the Steelforce 100gra and the 125gra, both of them I was not imprested with at all, I would not recommend either of these to anyone. In my opinion the point is too long and not strong enough it was very easy to roll the ends over. And the bleeder blades I found bent even on the ribs of a deer. Yes these will harvest deer if shot in the boiler room, but I do believe there are much better broad heads out there than these.
I have since switched to the Magnus Stinger 100gra 2 blade, and I will just say there is no comparison between the two. If your looking for a cut on contact head these are worth your time and money. You owe it to yourself to get a pack and try them out.
