Anybody have any experience with Zwickey broadheads, with or w/o bleeder blades? By looking at them, I would guess they are stamped. I wonder how uniform they are in terms of tuning. Do they seem to fly consistently?
The Zwickey and Magnus II are both excellent performers and have a large following with traditional shooters as well as some compound shooters.
As far as 2 or 4 blade (2 with a bleeder). In a compound, I don't believe it would make much difference. In a traditional rig. I prefer a 2 blade on game with a thicker mass than deer, for penetration.
Zwickeys are terrible, sure they might be fine for traditoinal archers who take only 20 yard shots, but for the compound archer who is getting shots up to 50 yards they are terrible , the reason being is that the 2 blade creates an uneven weight dispertion in flight especialy since the zwacheys are stamped. dont get them Instead get some American Broadhead Company broadhead!
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
