Default G5 Montec

I decided to try these out this year. They hit exactly where my field tips do. Problem is I can't seem to get them really sharp. I got their sharpening stone when I bought the BH's and now matter what I try, I can't get them shaving "razor" sharp. Anyone else having this problem? Any advice ortips would be appreciated. I am impressed with their flight though.

Sharpen with a falling edge. Or drag them with the edge, not against. I use a diamond sharpener or gatco kit. I then use a stromping strap. Shaves the arms.

Did you change the bevel of the edge....ie make is less of an angle? It looks like it's got a pretty steep edge. Maybe 60 degrees? I figured that's why it's so hard to get a razors edge.

Go to their website and watch the video. Then finish up doing the same thing but on a strop with stropping compound.
