G5 Outdoors T3 Expandable Mechanical Broadheads
Love this broadhead
After reading the above reviews I wanted to post mine. While I never shot my broadheads into a target, I did however, shoot one into a deer, which is our ultimate goal. I have attached a pic of the entrance wound and exit wound on my deer. Lets just say this doe was missing two triangle patches of hide when it was all over. I can not say anything about the stripping of the ferrel, but I can say that mine were sharpe, they flew true, and they opened like I hoped they would.
The only negative is when you get them, the spider clip is tight. However, while playing with them I made one expand, when trying to get the blades back in place they did seem loose. All I did was bend the spider clip back a bit so that it creates a little more tension on the blade to keep it tight and in place.
IMHO I think this is a great broadhead and would recommend these to anyone.

Best expandable on the market
Field point accuracy, devastating wound channel, even a bad shot will bring a deer down, massive blood trails. I won't shoot anything else. Period!

Failed to Open
I was hunting the second day of bow season when the buck of a life time came in sight 17.5 yards. I made a good shot on him and he took off. When in the process of tracking the deer the first thing I noticed was no pass through. My bow is set at 65 pds and at 17.5 yards it should have passed straight through. So im tracking blood and about 50 yards i find my arrow. Broadhed still closed :(. I tracked for a long long way and never found my deer. This is very depressing since I have worked so hard and never killed a buck. I am gonna try one more time on a doe and if it doesnt open this time I am done with G5 broadheads.

Nothing like a 1 1/2 tunnel
I picked a set of these up for my hunt in Nebraska last weekend. Let me tell you these things are nasty. I shot two doe's with a complete pass through on the double lung heart shot. Upon impact you notice you hit the mark when you see blood pouring out both sides. Tracking was easy with the size of the hole these create. Both deer only ran 50 yards before they died.
Some reviewers state these are junk because of the spider clips threads breaking off etc. Which may all be true, but I have shot all three multiple times and was able to re-lock the blades using the same spider clips that were first installed. I guess I just got lucky, but I will never go back to fixed blade broadheads.
