G5 Outdoors Montec Fixed-Blade Broadheads
Been shooting the G5's for a few years now. The only broad head that I can go from field point to broad head with no sight adjustments. I am almost 60 now and after 36 years of bow hunting I now shoot a lighter draw weight and still get excellent penetration. You don't need mechanical heads, you just need to shoot well enough to hit the goody box. I may be old fashion but I believe when it comes to bow hunting you screw up enough on your own without adding whether or not your broad heads will open. Just keep it simple and enjoy the hunt.

As you would expect from G5, the montec is a stellar broadhead. I like the fact that it is forged from a single piece of metal and can be resharpened after use (huge for year-round, fiscally minded bow hunters). These are tough, way more than Muzzy's. I am a fan of fixed blade broadhead for several reasons, but make sure you know these (or any fixed blade) will affect arrow flight more than the typically highly aerodynamic mechanical heads. However, at 320 ft/sec, and a 70 lb draw, it is not much difference up to 40-50 yards.

Bought these last year to replace muzzy, I found it hard to get them really sharp with the G5 stone; but sharp enough. Had a complete pass through on a buck at 42 yards, and a good blood trail at first. Unfortunately I was unable to locate it after spending a whole day looking. Will give them another chance this year and hope it has a better outcome.

I have been bow hunting for four years with great success until this year after friends convinced me to move from The. Montec G 5 to Rage mechanicals. I had successfully killed nine deer in four years, all with Montecs. This season while elk hunting I shot a cow elk cleanly at 45 yards with the Rage. It was a complete pass thru. There was a poor blood trail and we chased the elk for three hours. It never bled more than a few drops and I am convinced it never deployed. Three weeks later I shot a Mulie buck at 20 yards, another pass through with the Rage. It ran 30 yards and I put another one through the vitals. An hour later I walked toward the downed deer and it got up and ran like it never was hit! Two rages and no deer. I switched back to Montec G5 and four days later dropped a 285 Pope and Young buck at 30 yards...it went less than 25 yards before expiring. We are heading to Africa this spring and I will only be shooting a 125 Grain Montec. I am done with mechanicals forever
