Default Does anyone know this about mech broadheads?

Last weekend, I started to practice with my hunting setup. I have a Mathews LX @ 65#, 26" 2312 aluminum, 4" vanes, 100grn Snyper broadheads and a total KE of 66 in my setup.

I started practicing in a block target in my home @ 20 yards and afther a couple of shoots one of the blades in the Mechanical Broadhead broke. I find out this happend with one of my arros witch have a full helical vanes (I was trying to find ot the best helical for my arrows)...... Afther that, I tried with the same kind of arrow, but with straight vanes and the Broadheads work pretty good and it didn't happend again.

What I'm concern is tha with too much helical in the vanes, the arrow spin to the point where it brakes the blades of the broadhead in the moment it enter the target.

Does this sound Sane! or I'm just having a bad luck with my mech.



Maybe one of you have had the same experience with this....... Now I don't konw if I should keep using a good helical in my arrow or just keep it straigth !.

Mechs are what you call repeatable shot heads.

I doubt that's what happened. The tip on the Snyper would largely stop rotation upon contact. Were you shooting groups? Maybe you hit another broadhead?

If your not sure what happend and are skeptical about the broadheads, try using a cut on contact broadhead, some of them nowadays fly just as good as a mech.

It could have been why the blade broke. I have used straight fletch for
many years with mechanical broadheads because of the rest I use
which is a star hunter rest and it works well for me. I have even used
them for fixed blade Wasp broadheads and it works well. As long as my
arrows are flying straight and grouping well I am as ready to hunt as
I am going to be.

I don't think your blade broke becuase of the helical fletch. I have been shooting it for years and never had a problem. sounds like you hit it with anothr arrow. I have broken blades off several differnt heads this way.
