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!
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
I chose to shoot the 270 winchester because I grew up...
