Default nap blood runner

ok so today i was at dicks and the first place i always go is the hunting section. as some of you know im a bowhunter on a budget (as most of us are) and i noticed that a 4 pack of blood runners was cheaper than a 3 pack of rages by a dollar or so. has anyone shot these? i want the good bad and ugly please and thanks.

oh and another thing. i looked at the team realtree quick shrink fletchings and they are 20 bucks. as of right now i am shooting 2 green 1 yellow fletchings and its kinda hard to see them in the ground but i was wondering if they fly the same as normal quick shrink fletchings or whatever because they are only 20 for 6 instead of 30

I was at Dicks last night and was looking at them as well. I did a google search about reviews and the only negative thing that I seen about them is the point is spring loaded and as longs as the point is being pushed in then the broadhead will expand out to a 2 1/4" (I believe) wide cut. Oneperson was questioning that if the arropw was going through a deer would the point have continuous pressure to achieve the large cuting area. At a very minimyn if the the blades does not expand out you will have a 1 1/8" cutting area. Hope this helps. There are some youtube demonstations on them and their reviews.

Another question, The last post said that they made a lot of noise. How do they make more nois than say a three blade fixed blade? The two balde broadhead id 1 1/8" retracted. I really like the look of the blades, just was wondering about the moise and the fact that he blades expand upon contact usging constant pressure on the tip.

Yeah that video is crazy, they look like a good head. If you opt to shoot them make shure you do a write up on them.

Was told today that the 3-blades fly better than the 2-blades. Not a smart guy on mechanical broadheads so I don't know if that's just the norm or not.
