Anyone tried these heads out yet? I have never liked the idea of mech heads but I am kind of liking the idea of the rear facing hybrids like this

mechanicals work fine --killed two deer so far this year with the rage knockoffs from ebay -1 head survived and can be reused -the other destroyed on passthru--no way I would spend $40 for 3 broadheads ever! I have used other mechanicals over the last several years and generally they open up a huge exit wound. If they fly ok for you try them. Just dont plan on using them twice.

I'm sorry, I love my Shwackers. I think I've lost one deer since I started using them four-five years ago.

Those Trocars look a little flimsy to me.

How is the entrance wound with those? The way they are designed, it looks like they open up when they're already in the chest cavity. I can't see how they would cut skin on impact.

They're not quite like Rages, where they open on the outside. They open as they go through the rib cage. Every Shwacker I've found after shooting a deer has been reusable, sometimes requiring a resharpening.

It is a stupid law, but I still use fixed blades. Can't beat reliable cut on contact

honestly, Ive gotten used to muzzy's and Ive only lost one deer that Ive shot with one...It must have hit square on the bone and broke its leg but didnt penetrate. found what I thought was decent blood but not lethal. All the rest of the deer since I started using them in 2012 were not lost;)
