Default Magnus Stinger, 100gr 4 blade (WOW!!)

Hey there.... I just received a 3 pack of Magnus Stinger 4 blade broadheads from Cabela's today. As you could guess, I couldn't wait to try them out.

First impression: OMG, they are not kidding (talking about "scary sharp"). These are some nasty looking broadheads! Holy cow, these things are like a double blade surgical scalpel with 2 small "bleeder" blades in the middle!

Arrows: Easton XX75 Camo Hunters in a #2315.
Bow: Classic old 1996 PSE Edge, round wheel dual cam,65#, 30" draw.
Broadheads/Tips: 125gr Thunderheads and 125gr field tips.

I went light with the Magnus Stingers, because of the huge cut on contact tip on them, soI got the 100gr style. Mybow is still very accurate with excellent groups into the "Black Hole" target. I have darn near Robin Hooded an XX75 from 20 yards with field tips.

Anyway, the Thunderheads shoot great and are lined up with the fletchings (whatever difference it might make - I don't know..) They are very sharp and are a legendary broadhead. But they have always shot just a hair lower than the field tips. It is not a big deal and nothing to get anal about. I mean, we're talking a tiny fraction of an inch... But yet, the Magnus Stingers shot exactly the same place as my field tips! They flew perfectly right out of the box and hit so hard on the "Black Hole", they punched right through the backside of it!

I am impressed with the Magnus Stinger broadhead! I don't know how well they fly 25,30,40 yards though. But just from what I have tried out so far, they fly great!

Next up is the Slick Tricks that everyone is raving about. I want to try some of those too!

Hey, it's summer... Plenty of time to goof around and experiment with broadheads.

ButchA, I started using the stinger 100 gr'slate last season, taking both a nice 10pt and a good doe. As you stated they performed flawlessly and they will once again be my primary broadhead this year. I did order some 100 gr Slick Tricks from Archery Experts to give another try. I did use the Slick Trick a few yearsback when they first came out. "MY" results where not as good asmost. In all fairness I only used one broadhead on one deer. I had the treaded portion shear off at the base of the blade after contacting a rib on a very nice 8pt. Not sure exactly what happened but like I said, in all fairness I will try them again this season.With so much positive feedback I may have had a faulty broadhead. It does happen. LOL.

Thanks.... Iwant to do a little experimenting over the summer and just have some fun shooting my old PSE bow with a few different broadheads to see what is what. I'm sticking with Easton 2315's at 30.5" - because that's what I was setup for by the bow shop.

The Magnus Stingers screwed right in and didn't have any wobbling at all. They flew great and really impressed me. They are way sharper than my Thunderheads. They are way sharper than anything I have seen! I mean, they are so sharp it's like, "don't touch them, don't go near them, don't even look at them!" ha ha ha {thinking of the funny scene from the movie Spinal Tap!}.

How would you think they would shoot at higher speeds? Say, in the 280-290 range? I know that some broadheads get a little hokie at higher speeds.

I shot the 100 grain 2 blade Magnus Stingers before. They are so sharp I wonder how they stay in the package when flipped upside down. In the broadhead package there is a yellow note that says to mail them a picture of any animal you shot with the Magnus Stingers and they will give you a free hat or shirt. I also heard that they will replace, for free,any broadheads that will not spin true, and they will replace, once again, forfree,any dull or broken heads, even if the damage was caused by hitting a rock.

Even if the damage was all your fault. I love these heads. I have the same ones you have, Butch. I love em. They flew PERFECT with my last bow, I haven't shot them with my new bow yet, but Im sure they will fly perfect, too.

I'm sure they will fly great too in your new bow. I am hooked on these new broadheads.... [8D]

Don't play with them, though. They will slice you open. [:@]

I use the 100 grn Stinger 4 blades shooting a 405 grain arrow out of my Bowtech Extreme VFT at 70 pounds. I don't know what speed I'm shooting but I can tell you it's fast. The Stingers hit right with my fieldpoints out to 30 yards which is the farthest I shoot.

I can tell you that I have nearly thr same setup and my Patriot spits them out at 303 fps so I 'd say your VFT is doing a little faster than that (assuming that you have a 30" draw length). Stingers fly fine for me out this rig.
