New Archery Products BloodRunner 2- or 3-Blade Expandable Broadheads
Good Design But Do Not Fly Well
I was really excited when I got these heads because I really like the design and cutting diameter on the two blade. However, when I went out to shoot them I could not get them to fly in any kind of consistent pattern at all. I would be ok if it was just them not flying like field points because it is easy to tune your bow a little to fix that, but I could not even get the three in the package to fly the same in a pattern. I have a couple other brands of both fixed blade and mechanical heads and they all fly straight and true out of my set up, mind you that they may impact a little different from each other but each head groups very well. These would not fly consistently at all. I'd advise you not to buy these and to just purchase a different head. Also, I did not even bother trying to figure out how to replace the blades but it looks complicated like you'll need a very small screwdriver to replace them, no thanks. Gets one star because it wouldn't even fly well, so I'll never even get to the point of hunting with it.

Run from Bloodrunner
I tried the new Bloodrunner broadhead. I shot 5 times and could not group my shots at 20 yards. The blades fell out after the 5th shot. I shoot my broadheads into a 10 inch foam target with a broadhead target three feet behind to stop a passthrough. I remove the blades after each shot before I remove my arrow so that I will not damage the blades. The Bloodrunner is too fragil for me and it did not group at all. Do not waste your money.

Moonlight blood trails
I bought these broadheads for use with my new crossbow, and I couldn't be happier with the results.
I took my crossbow armed with the BloodRunner 2 blade broadheds to the hunting woods.
After seeing several deer during the morning hunt, but not getting any shots, I was excited when a really nice doe passed by my stand at 36 yards.
The broadhead found it mark behind the front shoulder and passed straight through, it left a huge entry and exit wound.
The blood trail was awesome.
After dark, my buddy joined me to trail the deer, the blood trail was even visible in the moonlight. The deer ran about 100 yards after the hit, and piled up, completely out of blood. A novice could bllod trail the deer.
Awesome broadhead, no flight problems

I tried the 3 blade when it first came out and loved them! What a hole those things left! That is were all the good goes out the door. When the two blades hit the stores I bought four packs that had four heads in each, all you math folks know thats 16 new heads for deer season. 3 I would shoot for practice and after 3 shots into my block target one came out with no blades? The body were the screw threads in had broken on both sides leaving blades and tip in target. Long story short I broke two more just in practice, gave half to buddy and between two of us shot 4 deer with those heads and every single deer we found parts of broad head on ground indicating that the heads are junk. Did not recover any of those deer to make worse. Three blade is a must if you buy the blood runner.
