Default Crimson Talon

Any feedback on the broadheads? I have shot these the last 2 years and have had pretty good success with them. To me though, they are a one shot broadhead. They seem to bend very easily, even when in your quiver and you put them in and out. The blades seem very thin compared to Muzzy's.

I will have to say that I like them because I don't have to resight in my bow when I use these. You can't really use them to practice either because they don't have a practice blade and you would bend the hunting broadhead to hell.

The Muzzy's were about 4 inches low and right. That was with the AR. I haven't tried them in the Switchback. It may be worth going back and trying them out because I never had an issue with a Muzzy, whether it was deer, bear, or boar.

I have heard that the Crimson Talons break easily. I will stick with my Muzzys.

There is a certain way that you have to pull them out is what I heard. Something about you have to twist them as you pull them out or something like that. They are bit too expensive for me though. I think that I am going to try the new Muzzy MX-4. They look a little stouter than the regular Muzzy 4-blade.

i can actually help you here i would definately stick with muzzys and i shoot the three blade and ill tell you something that helps my accuracy with them (but it wont help with 4 blades) I use alumminum arrows so when i get the broadheads or new arrows i put them on and then heat up the glue inside the shaft that is holding the insert in and turn the broadhead to it lines up with my fletchings. Works for me

Better heads on the market IMHO. Wasp, Muzzy, Thunderhead to name a few.

Follow my link to learn how to tune your bow, then you should be able to shoot most any head with good accuracy. CT heads will get the job done, but the cost twice as much as most other brands and are only half as durable.

No, I haven't tried those yet. I have been shooting the CT for 2 seasons now. Last year I didn't hunt much since I got married.

I have only shot Muzzy's, Thunderheads, and Spitfires. I couldn't get the TH's to fly accurate with my old bow, the Muzzy's were OK and only needed minor adjustments, and I didn't really trust the Spitfires after a couple of issueswith pass through.
