How do the Snuffers fly? Plane at all?

Scoobiedoo, Depends upon your setup! The bigger the head the more feather it takes to steer it! Mine shoot like darts! I use 5 1/2" banana fletch on the 160s.

I have avoided this thread like a plague! [8D] I have used Snuffers for a very very very very long time now. All I hear from folks is "I can't get them sharp", "they make to much noise", "I can't get them to fly", "they won't penetrate". I have shot them out of 60# compounds. I have shot them out of 46# recurvers. I have shot them out of 53# longbows. Right now I am shooting them out of an Onidea set on 48# on 35/55 Gold Tips and they fly like darts. And sharpen them. I get them hair popping rubber band spliting SHARP! I LOVE SNUFFERS!!!!!! A WW is just a Snuffer want to be.

To sharpen I use a 10" mill bastard file and push the broadhead up the file to parallel the edges. Not the file on the BH. When all edges are bright with not uncut places on them I push the BH on a 2" wide diamond stone. When polished bright I strop then on a piece of leather coated with red jewelers ruge (sp). The leather is mounted on a 8" piece of 2" x 4". Hey works for me and besides the Snuffers are the only BH I can get sharp. [X(]

I shot the snuffers today and they flew great, yes they whistled but hey, that is the last thing the animal will hear. I didn't find them hard to sharpen either. about 2 minutes with the file it popped the rubber band with no problem. I have some 160 grain heads coming again with heavier spined shafts, will give them a go. I think I have found a new head to use.

Great! I just purchased a 6-pk of them on eBay this week. See how they do for me!

I've always hunted with Thunderhead 125's and had great luck with them - but I want to go with a solid blade rig next season sicne I'll be switching to my Kodiak Mag for hunting...
