Re: Using a ghost blind

I had the shorter one. I sold it after a season because it was more hassle than helpful. Bulky to haul around, no rain or scent coverage and above all, always a pain to have to shoot through slots or above it. IMHO I'm just better off with a cheap stakeout blind where I can raise or lower the height...

Re: Steelhead XL Broadheads or Blades

Those are bigger blades.. The Hammer has a 2" cut the Steelhead XL has a 1.5" and the Regular Steelhead is a 1 1/8".
Thanks for trying to help though..

Steelhead XL Broadheads or Blades

I need some replacement blades for the Rocket/Trophy Ridge Seelhead XL BH. Will gladly buy any heads or blades you have that can be salvaged by sharpening or straightening.. Even 1 single used blade would help..
Tanks,

Re: Ramcat Hydroshock-X

Have taken 2 deer so far with them. Nice blood trails on both despite high shoulder hits from 13 year old son who followed the blood to each about 50-75 yards to each one. I can say with high confidence, neither deer would have been recovered had they been an expandable combined with these shots. On...

Re: long limber

Long limb Excals will shoot great forever...In fact my son almost always chooses my Vixen 2 over his Micro except when we hunt out of a blind. I've had several Vortex, Exocet, Phoenix, Exomax etc.. The traditional stock and the long limbs just seem to naturally balance the best and IMHO are the best...

Re: Which spitfire BH

Did several tests years ago with Spitfires through paper tuning rack when I suspected they were opening in flight. With long limbed Excals shooting in the 305-325fps range the blades would consistently open on Broadheads that had been used or opened and closed several times. The blades rely upon a "...

Re: Recommend Me A Reliable 100gr Expandable

Rocket Steelhead or Nap Shockwave for 300fps bows and down, Rocket Sidewinder or Nap Spitfire(add rubber band) for everything above... Fly exactly like my field points beyond 50 yds as long as you orient them to spin true. If open to fixed blade, the Ramcats also fly to the same POI and work beautif...
