This past weekend I harvested a doe with this broadhead. This was the first time i have used them and I have to say i am more than impressed. The shot was 23 yards, my heart sank as i saw the Red Nocturnal nock zip through her too high and too far back. The noise this head made was astounding to me, it sounded like a baseball hitting a catchers mit, pass through was complete and the arrow was buried in the ground. The deer trotted away unafraid. I found the deer 90 yards away, the shot was behind the diaphram, no vitals were hit yet this deer expired in less than 20 minutes from unbelievable arterial damage. Entry wound was as expected, exit wound was enormous. I have no doubt that this broadhead made up for my poor shot placement on this deer. I will never use anything else again. Oh, and the head was buried 6 inches in the ground, I pulled it off, cleaned it when i got home and will use it again tomorrow. It is completely undamaged and as sharp as before use.

I travel for my job and don't get a lot of time to shoot, but for the last few years I have been religious and try to let at least 100 arrows fly every couple of weeks. I have shot muzzy, rage, spitfire, thunderheads, and now the grim reaper. Last Friday the dream happened. I drive home from Georgia over night to find it raining at 6 am. I get ready and get in the woods. i place my fanny pack on my stand, its just breaking light and i'm getting the sling off my bow. I notice a stump that looked like it moved, and realize that stump has horns. I get an arrow and my release and pray he doesn't notice me. At 35 yards i let the carbon fly. the buck takes off i watched my arrow due to lighted nocks. i'm shooting a tricked out Z7 a little over 300 fps FYI.Due to the rain i climb down as soon as deer is out of sight and run to the arrow to see the blood and find what????? only one blade opened!!!!!!!! Oh no I thought, fur in the other blades and blood on my vanes. I gave the deer 3 hours , found blood 200+ yards away from where i shot him using a dog to trail. I did mention it was raining right.after 3 days of searching i lost the biggest deer I had ever shot not to mention my first buck with a bow. then decided to shoot 2 broadheads into a target to see what would happen and found the blades broken off the ring they are held by. i trashed all 9 broadheads that day.

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!
