I been shooting my bow for a few weeks now, and I was looking for a broad head that was accurate, dependable, and does quick, clean kills. I been looking at the Grim Reapers on YouTube and reviews and got a lot of positive comments about the Grim Reaper Broad heads. In all I decided to by them. They were a little pricy, but they were true about accuracy. With the practice tips I been doing 1 1/2" groupings at 20yds. If you have a compress foam target the practice heads will take chunks out of it. In all, I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR THE PIGS GRUNTING IN THE FALL!!! After hunting season I'll edit the review.

i harvested a deer with this broad head opening day this year. I am using a horton fury crossbow. The deer walked under my stand and the only shot presented was through her backbone into her lungs. The arrow completely opened up and cut through her spine. It cut a massive hole upon entry due to the hard hit into bone. cut organs and stopped before completely passing through. Of course the deer did not moveand feel where i shot her. Pulled the arrow out, cleaned and resharpened blades and will not hesitate to use again. Great broadheads.

Finding negative reviews hard to believe.... I shot two bucks last year and this broad head was perfect. I've killed deer and hogs with 180gr 30.06 for over 25 years and the entry exit wounds the grim reaper made are more impressive than a gun shot. Forgot to mention, both bucks same broad head and plan to use for next one... a three pack will last a long time because sharpening the expandable blades is simple... my fear is the product being too good that if I don't stock up that they'll not have enough repeat customers and if I ever need more they won't be around.... buy this if you are looking for the best.... there's no tracking necessary with these, buckets of blood pour out a blind man could follow the trail.

I shot a hog with this broad head at 40yrds an it left a huge exit wound. The blood was shooting out an the hog ran about 40yrds an dropped dead. I really recommend this broad head..

My blades have always opened up. Try using a paper plate, it's a little stronger, more like hide, and they should open up. If not, disassemble and make sure they ring is seated properly, with the open section of the ring seated on the groove for it. The blades should open and close very easily just by the touch, and spring load closed, when assembled properly.
Very Very unhappy with these blades and will write a very bad review if I can't get this problem fixed. One, two, or no blades open causing the arrow to plane. Lost a very nice doe. Wisp of blood on a fletch, no blood trail. Started checking the flight using a piece of paper. The only thing consistent was that not once did all three blades open.
I've never had this problem. All 3 ALWAYS open. As you open a blade manually they should open easily, and snap back into place as you push them gently back toward the point. 4 years and a dozen deer for me with these.
There is no way these blades are opening during flight unless they head is installed improperly. I did have that problem, so i thought, with the Rage heads, I switched to these after completely missing a buck last year at 15 yards. I have since been convinced that the problem was not the heads, but my inexperience with a new VERY fast short brace height bow. Now i practice a lot more and properly. I have used the grim reaper and harvested a doe a few days ago with one for the first time. GREAT head. I don' think you're going to get all three blades to open on paper, it just doesn't work that way. Look on Youtube for videos on how to install these heads, the cup can be a bit tricky, but when they are done properly, they work perfectly.
Not sure why arrow is planing. Grim Reapers open upon impact, therefore paper would not be enough to force the blades open. These broadheads are made for higher FPS bows though. Older compounds may not have the FPS to use effectivly. I sight in my bow using field points of the same weight as the Grim Reapers. They shoot the same. Check to make sure when screwed into the end of the arrow that all three blades fall into their respective places. Blades should "click" open and closed when opened and closed with your finger.
Make sure your cups are installed properly, and the springs are installed. I have killed 6 deer with Grim Reapers Whitetail specials and lost a 7th due to a bad shot. They have always opened. It definitely sounds like a binding problem. Also they should not open during flight, unless the spring is missing, and I doubt they will open through paper. You can also try shooting through 2 pieces of carpet spaced about 3" in between, to simulate an animal. As with most mechanicals, it is the internal damage and exit hole that should be more noticeable the the entrance wound. I hope I helped a little.
