Broke off at threads in insert
I shot a doe in shoulder blade and exited behind opposite shoulder. Complete pass through. I recovered my arrow and the broadhead was missing. I understand that a shoulder blade could damage any broadhead but I do not think it should break off at the threads inside the insert. I believe this happened because the threaded portion is machined flat on three side causing weakness, I wanted to try these after damaging blades on the rage. These broadheads did leave a red carpet treatment though.I May give them another shot since it did exit animal before breaking off

These are probably the most over rated and over advertised broadheads on the market...I bought them with a new crossbow. Took them out of the package and had to tune the spider clips to get them to stay together. After taking one shot the spider clips were ruined. I contacted G5 outdoors to let them know and the response I received was the spider clips were only good for one use. So to buy more spider clips or go back to my old broadheads. I choose my old broadheads. I dont have the luxury of being a paid professional hunter so I can't afford to go replace parts on my arrows after each shot. Even the paperwork that comes with them doesnt do a very good job of describing how to collapse them properly and never says you should replace the spider clips after each shot.
It does however say that when they are worn out to replace them. Lucky for me Bass Pro Shops stands behind their name and allows me to return them unlike the help I received from the manufacturer.

Bought these t3's Shot 1 into my Foam Target. Left it at home grabbed the other 2 out of the package, headed to the hills, Shot a buck at 40 yrds. Head never expanded, looked like I hit it with a field point. Luckly I shot it again with a fixed blade muzzy. After recovering the buck skinning it looking at the hole in and out. Perfect shot through the lungs. No rib bones were hit but not expansion either. Junk! Bad luck? Don't Know. Don't Like. I need a broad head that WILL open. Lucky this wasn't a buck of a lifetime.

If you are looking for a true mechanical. The switchblade by trufire is what your looking for. Disreguard all the reviews even the good one and see for yourself. They fly just like a field tip. It'll tack drive!!! They will not pre open in flight. Just make sure to use the same grain field tip and broadhead. I recommend the switchblade. Here is a pic. of the damage left behind the switchblade!
I'm sure you can but I wouldn't recommend it. Not because it's a bad broad head.But because crossbows from my understanding should be using heavier grain heads. These only go up to a 125gr. You go too light on a crossbow you will put to much stress on the bow. It's like dry firing it and it could break a limb. And I've seen guys bring there crossbows into the shops all the time with this same problem. All because they shoot to light of arrow and head.
With practice blades you can shoot almost any target. They should channel back just fine. With the blades it depends on your bow. If you have a speed bow going over 300 fps use a thicker target that has loose enough filing to push arrow through to other side. It would be very hard to remove these heads the way they went in. Take them through the back. But you will get great penetration so like I said plan on the bag thickness for how fast bow is.
I shot them into a redhead foam target. I use the practice blades so they do not open in the target. my problem is the head penetraits all the way through the target so i just take the head off then pull it back through, this saves from ripping the foam all out.
There is no need to shoot gators into your target at all! Use your field points and set your bow sights to them. The gator flies just like your field point. And yes if you do shoot them into your target you may not get them out
If you intend to shoot with the actual blades, use something you know you'll get a pass thru on, or something that will allow the tip to be exposed. If you shoot into a target and the tip lodges in the middle and you can't push it through the other side, there is no chance of getting it out the way it came
I'm not sure what minimum is , but I pass through deer every time with 70 lbs. My buddy gets pass throughs with 55lbs. . I shot a doe at 60 yards had pass through and even clean through one rib. But my bows ibo speed is 345.
I believe that shot placement will increase the chances of getting a good pass through. I have a Mathews Z7 set at 63 pounds and I achieved a pass through. But the newer bow are so efficient will increase the chances of a pass through. If you have the right set up bow poundage grain weight on the arrows and broad head and a good tuned bow with a good shot placement you get a pass through at almost any poundage on the bow
My family and friends have used these for years and it take very little energy to deploy these blades. They open very easily. I shoot the 125 grain broadheads at 70 pounds with 28 inch arrows and get compl ete pass throughs. Hope this helps, and as always God bless and good hunting!
