Grim Reaper Razortip Whitetail Special Mechanical Broadheads
blade retention is for the birds.in a 3 pack i bought,2 blades would regularly open in flight.i took out the retention ring and spring and put on a rocket o ring.this worked fine.i shot a big midwestern buck with it,the entry side showed all blades entered closed,the exit would showed 3 blades were open.the blood trail was absolutely incredible.the buck didnt go far. the shot was at 30 yards quartering away.id say liver and single lung.it was a complete pass through and the head showed no damage.they fly good.i might use them again.

I used the 2" razortip on a 400 lb. black bear and was impressed as the black bear ran only 30 yards and expired. The entry hole was smaller then I expected and there was little blood trail, but the amount of cut made quick work of the bear, even though there wasn't a complete pass-through. One blade broke off as it glanced the shoulder causing the no pass-through; combined with my older, slower bow. Overall with a high power bow these broadheads are deadly! I will be buying some of the 1 3/8 cut heads to try as well

i bought these after using a similarly designed expandable that was alright. these don't exactly fly like a field point from my barnett quad 400 crossbow. but that could be due to the higher speed. but after sighting in with the included practice tip they flew were hitting the same spot everytime. if you're able, make sure your hunting tips are sighted in also, mine shot a little different than my practice tip. my only complaint is that they broke after hitting the shoulder blade when i shot my deer yesterday. but it was a bad shot, severely quartering towards me. i hit it in the neck cutting an artery and just missing the lungs. but it opened the deer up like a bag of blood. easy to follow blood trail. could stand still and see the blood trail for a good 20 yards ahead. both holes were gushing blood and were huge. will definitely buy again even though they break easier than other. overall a huge hole.

Best Mechanical Broadhead
This mechanical broadhead is a great piece of engineering. The design does NOT use clumsy (and sometimes faulty) o-rings, nor do the blades fall out of place constantly like Rage broadheads do. The blades firmly click in and out of place, and will open upon entering the animal. Shoots exactly the same as a field point of the same weight. No difference in shooting between field point and this broadhead (which means there is no extra sight tuning for the broadhead). I have never had any issues with defelction (but because of the design, that shouldnt be an issue in the first place). Every time I have shot a deer with a Grim Reaper, the deer never went any more than 60 yards. Blood trails were always VERY easy to follow and I pass through the deer every time (with a Mathews Switchback XT at about 60-65lb draw weight). I will use a Grim Reaper over a Rage any day. Rages do work well and give great blood trails, the difference is the blade design. Rage blades fall out of place a lot and require you to reset them all the time. Grim Reapers do not. Give them a try!
