Default Magnus Buzz Cut Broadheads -- Anyone tried them?

The doctor who sewed up my leg after a turkey hunt last spring was raving about these broadheads. He said the serrated edges really cut through thick meat and the wide cutting diameter made them great for turkeys too. Has anyone tried them? I am thinking of switching from my Montec G5 carbon steels.

I have been using them for several years now. I have shot deer, turkeys, and hogs with them. Very durable and work great. I love the warranty on Magnus products as well.

if you have a 300+ bow I wouldn't go with them... they'll plane on you about 25 yards out. missed a 6 point tonight do to that and changing heads for tomorrow.

I just recently switched to stingers. Out of my bow there is no difference in flight between the stingers and fieldtips. Very tough too, i haven't shot a deer with them yet though.

I can't believe a doctor is recommending a serrated edge over a smooth edge in a broadhead. The fact is that a cut from a sharp smooth edge promotes massive bleeding while a cut with a serrated edge promotes faster clotting.

AS far as stingers go they are an excellent broadhead with great flight characteristics and are extremely sharp with a lifetime warranty.

"if you have a 300+ bow I wouldn't go with them... they'll plane on you about 25 yards out. missed a 6 point tonight do to that and changing heads for tomorrow."

bowhuntre, I am using a diamond razor set at 28" and a 50 lb draw length so I don't think I will be shooting over 300 fps. BTW, why did you take a shot at a 6 pointer? Let that little guy grow up some!

"I can't believe a doctor is recommending a serrated edge over a smooth edge in a broadhead. The fact is that a cut from a sharp smooth edge promotes massive bleeding while a cut with a serrated edge promotes faster clotting."

Bigbulls, while it's true that more torn tissue will signal for more coagulation factors to be released it's also true that a large and jagged wound will have more trouble closing. Also, the doctor I'm referencing used to be a county coroner before he left to work at the student health center on campus, so I'm guessing he has seen his fair share of gnarly wounds.

But from what everyone has said, I could go either way on the stingers vs the buzz cuts. The price is right and it's great that magnus stands by their product so strongly.
