Default Rock Mountain Turbos

Anyone shot these yet? I'm thinking about jumping the Muzzy ship this fall

I'll have a couple in my quiver. Very sharp heads, plus they did outstanding in 5 Shot's testing.

I have jumped ship myself WWAG, this will be the first year that I am not shooting Rocket Aeroheads........I will have a mix of Turbos, as well as Gator XP and Snyper XP3 mechs in my quiver. All Rocky Mt. heads.
The Turbos are obviously an impressive head if you have read any of the reports on them including 5 Shot's.
On top of being extremely tough and fly like darts , they are typical Rocky Mt. scary sharp.
This will be the first year since 1997 that my primary broadhead choice will be a fixed blade head.

The fly great--right with my field tips, slicktricks and wacems! I've got deer, elk and antelope hunts this fall. Hope to compare the turbos and wacems with the slicktrick which I like very much. The turbos clearly have the sharpest blades. Shooting them into a foam targets, its clear they twist upon impact. Don't know if its good or bad--just something I noticed. I'm excited to compare results--still not sure which heads I'm going to use for which species. This is a wonderful dilema.

I'm getting used to the idea of the angled blades helping out to spin the arrow instead of just dragging along in the wind.

Very sharp head but not a muzzy, don't expect the same results. A well placed shot will kill with any head, a little to small for my taste.

Yeah, I'm sure 1/16" less cutting diameter will make a major difference![8D]

Why is that?......According to 5 Shot's tests the 100gr Muzzy 3 blade scored a 25 w/ a blade sharpness of B.
The R.Mt. Turbo scored a 28 w/ a blade sharpness of A+, and according to him it shot through everything like wet toilet paper with no damage and with field point accuracy.
Muzzy is a good time tested broadhead, but what are you basing that opinion on? 1/16" of cutting diameter?
IMO the new breed of short, inherently accurate heads like the Rocky Mt. Turbo, NAP Nitron, Slick Tricks, Sonicsetc could quite quickly replace oldstandbys as Muzzy, Thunderhead etc as the year in year out favorites.
