With the number of broad heads on the market I was skeptical on what I was going to send at my first archery whitetail. A guy out at the local bow shop I go to suggested the T3 and so I bought them. And let me tell you what, I was not disappointed. I got away with a pass through that hammered through both shoulders on a nice doe. I gave it a 4 because it broke at the threads, but it was poison on that doe so with that I'll use T3s well for as long as they make them.

I purchased this product after hearing about it constantly on TV. I shot a big eight point at 30 yards and it looked like a perfect shot. He ran about 10 yards and started slowly walking away. I waited a little bit, got out of the stand, and waited 8 hours before looking for him. There was blood everywhere for the first 75 yards and then the blood trail just stopped. We never found the animal and I am very disappointed with this product. It is also very confusing to put the blades in.

I really enjoy shooting this broadhead. The practice blades are simple to put in and they fly exactly like my field points. I shot my first deer ever this year a six point from 20 yards with my Mathews helim from my ground blind, the arrow went in the shoulder and hit the other side, and only went 40 yards and died. When i skinned him out there was the tissue damage was incredible. On the cover it says unspeakable devastation and it really does.

These blades are very strong. I purchased these just to make sure I had some replacements for my broadheads. These things are thick and sharp and can withstand a couple of shots before needing to be replaced. Very good product!

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!
YES, you have enough energy. You need to adjust the tention on the spider clips to deploy properly with your set up. I was using a 125 gr but wanted a 100 gr and started using these they work great. You will love the blood trail.
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.
These broad heads come with three dulled blades that are easy to install. You take off the spacer and the spider clip and slide the blades out. Then put in the practice blades and the spacer next then they screw onto the arrow. I shoot into Block Black targets and they can withstand thousands of these practice blade shots.
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!
