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!
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
