Default Broadheads, a sharpness tester a USB microscope (Its nerd time)

I picked up some gear to evaluate sharp in my shop. Now I can quantify what sharp looks like and cuts like as it applies to broadheads.

If you are a Cutthroat broadhead user. My new video might be of help to you to get them sharper than a razor blade (with proof). What I failed to include in the video (after some folks asked the question about weight loss) the cost for making these heads huntable was 2 grains. which is one grain on each edge.

If you shoot a single bevel head, you will want to view this.
