Great broadhead.

Comes in both 1 1/4" and 1 3/4" for different bow/energy setups.

Jakhammers ROCK! You hit them where you are supposed to and they will leave a very short and wide blood trail. Check out the below links to see actual blood trails from a couple does I killed this past season.

I shot my turkey with a jak-hammer this last spring. He only got about 30 yards from impact, and was done. The head left a BIG exit hole!!

JUNK! Don't use it. Any expandable that has to flip all the way back like that, with the blades in frontal fold positon like that are crap (in my opinion). I used it, hit a buck in the shoulder at 20 yards. Got about 2inches penetration and he wasn't killed. Wounded him, seen him two days later limping around. Good thing he lived but these broad heads are dangerous when hiting bone. Im sure they work fine when the shot is straight in. But at angles i don't trust these heads because those blades have to flip all the way back.

Got to love a "this broadhead is junk" story that starts with "I hit him in the shoulder"...... So what broadheads do you recommend for bad shots again?

Loner Wolf,

Why would you come on here and say someting so nieve. My point was that I hit a deer in the shoulder and I got zero penetration. I think we all know that you could use the crapiest broad head on the market and kill a deer no problem when hit in the perfect spot. My point was a good broadhead covers all the things that could happen, like hitting bone. I had a bad experiencewith the Jack-hamer andIve heard plenty more form others with penetration problems with thesame head. If we all hit our deerperfectlylikeyoutherewould be no discussion about broad heads.

"Loner Wolf" If you knew anything aboutbowhunting you would know things don't goas planned all the time.Ya don't have to be aF##$$ andcome on heretry to belittle people. Maybethats why your name is"loner wolf" because knowone can stand to by around you
