well now that I've established for myself that rubber bands and o-rings don't matter anymore, are there any other rear deploy recommendations? Weak flimsy blades need not apply.
Lmao!

Why don't you just shoot a Slick Trick and then you get mechanical quality flight and cutting abilityandwon't have to worry about deploying blades, rubber bands, o-rings, weak or flimbsy blades, or any of the other draw backs to mechanicals.

In all seriousness, if you are really hung up on shooting a rear deploying broadheadI would look at the Trophy Ridge undertaker or smoke broadheads.

Just shoot a big 3 blade Cut On Contact head like I do. No moving parts here.

Kerry, thanks for the suggestions.

Steve, those snuffers of yours aren't "pretty". I like pretty. I like fly like field point reliability too.

Jeff, yes I have OCD. You should've seen howbent out of shape mentallyI got last year when my bow came in and there was a small imperfection in the camo on the riser.

Dan, I was very impressed with the Grim Reapers too but that 60 degrees you're talking about is the MAX angle that the BH will perform. A piece of plywood is flat, a deer is not. It has curves that could make the hit of the angle be higher than 60 degrees on a deer that's already 60 degrees quartered. Trying to take a heart shot on a hard quartered deer is even moreso out of the question. The physics of that is just too risky in MY opinion. I don't get to hunt much so I want odds in my favor.

Andif you're thinking it... that I shouldn't shoot a mechanical if I want the odds in my favor, I've considered that and the odds weigh out more in my favor by shooting them. See thread about to be posted.

The latest Bowhunter magazine has a run down on most of the popular mech broadheads. It compares rear and front openers. He discusses rubber bands.
