Muzzy Phantom Fixed-Blade Broadheads
cost me two deer
I bought these because of the positive customer reviews on this web site. These were the first broad heads I ever used. They cost me two deer. The first deer was a solid hit. No blood trail and the deer was lost. The second deer, the arrow flew off course and I missed. It was under 20 yards, and the arrow missed by a foot. I will never use this or any other Muzzy product again.

I have not taken these out yet for hunting, but I can say that they are pretty good so far. They shoot differently than field points so I will have to sight in my bow specifically for these broad heads. I was worried about being such a long head that it could throw off my shot and not be as consistent, but took them out of the box and put them on my arrows, and the second and third shots were so consistent they cut the fletches of the first arrow. They even fly well/consistent with slightly windy conditions.

My initial thought was this is a good broadhead, but after shooting and using it on several occasions I have changed my mind.
The bleeder blades did not stand up and on two different occasions came loose and slid down the arrow shaft cutting into and rendering the arrow useless. The first time this happened I thought could have been an isolated incident, but the second time was too much.
I did experience good arrow flight, good penetration, but very faulty constuction with the bleeder blade inserts.

Drop'm quick ...
Love these things , I have always shot Muzzy's . Switched to Phantom's this year , cant complain at all . Within 3 weeks time I took a 225lb black bear in canada ( complete pass through , excellent blood trail , bear went less than 20 yards and dropped ) , next was a doe on opening morning ( complete pass through , excellent blood trail , deer went about 25 yards and dropped ) . These things fly straight and hold an edge . I wont shoot anything but Muzzy's and these are my choice .
