Default Risky business....

I'm trying a new broadhead, right in the middle of bow season. YIKES!! I went to my bow shop & was talking with the owner. He's an older gentleman who I trust. He said I should switch from Spitfire to Double Whammy (100 grain) , a brand new broadhead that he has switched to.
He carries things in his shop that he has tested and likes.
He said I don't pull back enough weight to make the spitfire effective. I pull 50#'s.
Have any of you ever tried double whammy? I will practice with them tomorrow & see how I like them. Just wondered if anyone else had used these.
Thanks

Never heard of them? Tell us how they work if you get a chance to take a deer.

I took two pics of them....from different angles.......
My bow guy said he liked them because the blade was thick (.048"), and they flew as his practice blades did. I'll see about the flying true tomorrow. Anxious to see if it's true.

They appear as they would be an effective hear as a modified cut on contact. The front blades to aid penetration and act as a bleeder for the main blades to do the dirty work.

I would concur with the flight characteristics your shop told you. They appear to have a low profile and should fly well out of your bow. Pending your bow is in tune.

Hope they work out for you.
