Rated 4 out of 5 by JohnEBlaize First Shot; First Kill
The first time I shot one of these broad heads, I got a kill. The arrow went through and through very nicely. The buck ran about 50 yards and dropped. All three blades expanded and one broke on a rib. I found the blade in the bone.
My only issue with these is the spider clip/blade setting. can be a little tricky unless you have smaller fingers.
Performance wise, these are highly recommended. Ease of use wise, recommended though not as easy to use as Rage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by bgreen dosent exit deer
i have shot two bucks since buying this product both of them at extreme angles but neither of the shots made an exit wound and there was no blood trail. i am shooting a Z7 at 70lbs and their is no reason that i can think of that the shots would not be threw and threw. i would have rated it worse but i did find both deer and they did not go far at all. the blades did all deploy also but i will not continue to use this product due to the fact that if i was not to make a good shot i could not count on a blood trail. i would not recommend this product to anyone who is not a "perfect" shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buckjohn Great mechanical
I have used these mechanicals for about 5 years now, and can't say enough about them. I shot a large doe at 35 yards, it was a really bad shot, I hit her in the hip and broke the hip. I had to finish her off with a second shot, but the broadhead did a fantastic job. I also shot a 9 point buck at 25 yards, the arrow went through both shoulder blades and exited the other side. He didn't go far. The blades are easy to sharpen and very durable. I have one that I have taken 4 deer with and still using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by treestandjunkie Excellent
I have never shot mechanicals before, but I decided it was time for a switch. After visiting with family and friends that bow hunt, I settled on these. I was not disappointed. First time out with them, I took a large doe at 19 yards, slightly quartered to me. She made it about 10 yards and expired. When I dressed her, I found MASSIVE shock at both the entry and the exit points. The wound was very comparable to my .50 muzzleloader. The cutting diameter isn't the biggest on the market, but I feel the shock value is much greater.
To address some of the concerns I've seen on here...The spider clips are easy to tune once you get the hang of them. I will say the instructions in the package aren't much good, but there are some fantastic videos on YouTube that show you step by step how to tune them. As far as people having issues shooting targets--they include target blades, and they take literally 45 seconds to install, I would use them versus running real blades thru them. As to the head not opening--They are factory set for higher energy bows. If you shoot a smaller, low energy bow, you have to set the tension on the spider clips for that application (once again, see YouTube). Lastly, durability--the deer I took was hit in the shoulder, passed through, and the arrow driven in the ground about 6". No damage to arrow or broadhead.
I recommend these to everyone. Especially those considering the switch from a fixed blade. You won't be disappointed.
