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!
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
