Blades interlock in aluminum ferrule for additional stability
Vented .025'' stainless steel blades
Muzzy® MX-3 Fixed-Blade Broadheads are the latest edition of the short-profile MX series. Their ''bad to the bone'' reputation is a direct result of the hollow-ground Trocar tips which feature a 1-1/4'' cut for maximum damage and a clear blood trail. To increase strength, all three .025'' stainless steel blades interlock within the aluminum body.

A long story short, I was shooting Thunderheads until I missed twice, knew it wasn't me, practiced with them and they were all over the target. So, my buddy gave me one of his muzzy 100's that had clearly already been used because it had mud on it. However, I figured I'd try it and I'm glad I did! Two deer lined up in front of me and I took a shot with my Diamond and carbon furry arrow. The deer I aimed at dropped 15 yards away and I watched her die while the one behind her dropped right away and took off running. In disbelief, I found my arrow in the dirt where I aimed it and I recovered the second deer about 50 yards away. A clean pass-through on both deer! I will never buy another broadhead!

This is a great product. I have used MX-3 for two seasons now and have taken three nice deer with them all pass through. The replacement blades don't cost much. I would like to be able to buy replacement tips for them and you do need to tune them to your fleching. Over all these broadhead are great with good shot placement. Practice, Practice, Practice

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeaStory Hard to switch
Have had a few buddies try to get me to switch from MX-3 100 grain broad heads to one of the mechanical broadheads. Kind of hard to justify a switch to anything when you go 3 for 3 this year during archery season and none of the 3 made it past 40 yards from where they were originally shot. Great flight profile and a resounding "CRUNCH" as these broad heads slice through skin, flesh and bone. If there's a better broad head out there, someone's going to have to prove it to me before I would ever make a change

I personally switched from mx-4 to mx-3 as the 3 blade tuned better for me. In terms of killing power both will work the same. I have had no issues with 3 blades doing the job. Larger cutting area = better change to hit more vitals.
I like the 3 blade better but i know people who use the 4 blades who have awesome results on them aswell. Id say get whatever you like because theyre both gonna kill the animal with a good shot everytime
Well, it depends what you are hunting. For big game i would recomend the 3 blade eith more penetration, for deer and other game like that you can use the 4 blade. With the 3 blade you can hunt everything.
Kathleen My experience is with the 3 blade (MX3). I chose the 3 blade because it is a very stable flight design and pass through cutting patturn. One extra blade may be better. However, the 3 blade (MX3) is so effective at killing deer that I don't know why I would need the MX4. More is not always better. Think of a pyramid or triangle verses a square. Which is more stable?
The one that flys better from your bow. When I used to use these the 4 blades flew better for me. Blood trails were about the same. Both blew through deer easily and stayed together well. Blood trails were decent with good shot placement. I shoot only Magnus Stingers these days. Muzzy's are good, Magnus fly better for me.
Yes they did but they where milled incorrectly and would not allow the tip to screw on. So I shot the real thing and will not use them as they dont shoot the same as the practice tips. They where consistant to the same spot just not on target. I cannot return , I suppose, as I used them . But I saved them and the faulty practice blades in case someone from Muzzy company wants to look at them.
Yes, they come with one set of practice blades per pack. However they do not fly anything like the actuall heads as they are not the same size or weight in some cases. I bought some replacment blades and put on the actuall blades tuned my bow that way and they fly great
i've only killed i deer with a bow and it was with a spitfire, great broadhead just not durible, my dad is making me pay for all of my hunting things and i dont want to waist my money on something thats not worth hunting with.....

do yourself a favor and buy these, you'll never buy a different broadhead again! i shot 3 deer with the same broadhead last year. i promise you you wont regret this purchase!
Great for someone starting out. No worries about a mechanical failure and you'll get better penetration with a fixed blade. I would strongly suggest a fall away rest with these fixed blade broadheads. This is a great broadhead
Don't let the beginner thing get in your way. I started with Muzzy MX3s and killed 2 deer the first day in the field within 50 minutes of each other. So I guess you are not a beginner anymore when you have effectively killed your first deer with a bow. Remember most hunters never kill anything so even some of the old "seasoned" hunters don't know what you do about actually killing a deer. If you want a reliable broadhead for every hunt. Buy Muzzy. I will use them as long as they keep making a great product.
They are a good blade to start with, progress with, and grow old with especially if you are on a budget. There is no way you are “wasting” your money on these. Hopefully you will always be able to find your arrow and replace the razor blades, but if you cannot, the heads are less than $10 each. While it hurts to lose a $10 head on $10 arrow, being out $20 is not the end of the world. Better yet, find the arrow and you are good to go for the next hunt!
if you want a dependable head the muzzy is it. I've shot through a spike once. I broke 2 ribs on the right side, got both lungs and the liver and a TOTAL pass through. I couldn't find my arrow that day, but my dad found it two days later 20 yards past where i had hit the deer. he then stepped it off. I had made nearly a 50 yard shot on it, so a total arrow flight of nearly 70 yards. I could have used the blades again, but i regulated them to my practice blade supply as I only practice with my broadheads.
This is a great broadhead and is very reasonably priced. It is the first broadhead I shot and after experimenting with other broadheads I will continue to shoot the Muzzy MX-3. I used them as a beginner and would recommend them to anyone.
