Rated 5 out of 5 by PAKraig Thumbs up to Blackout fixed blade broadhead
Great, well-built product manufactured for BassPro by one of the most well respected broadhead manufacturers in the archery business.
The Blackout's blades are extremely sharp straight out of the package (sharp enough to shave arm hair), they fly extremely well (took mere minutes to tune to fly with field points while flying at 303 fps) and they are extremely durable due to their thick blades .030" and superior machining tolerances and construction. I have so far purchased nine 100 grain Blackout broadheads, and they vary in weight from 97.2 to 97.9 grains which is slightly lighter than advertised, but also shows that they are manufactured with very strict machining tolerances when compared to other manufacturers which sometimes vary in weight by several grains.
Combined with an unbeatable price (especially when on sale), the durability, accuracy, and excellent construction, makes the Redhead Blackout broadhead an outstanding choice for serious bowhunters everywhere, and why I choose them over all other heads, to carry in my quiver during the PA archery season.
Thanks BassPro/Redhead for such a great product, at an unbeatable price!

This is a great head for the price, blades extremely sharp out of the package. I took 4 deer with them last year and not a one went over 40 yards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Greyhound A deal at twice the price
I used these broadheads to take a wild hog last April. I wanted something compact that would fly true, I also wanted somthing durable--hog shoulders tend to be tough on broadheads. Mechanical heads were out of the question, so I decided to give the Blackouts a try. I'm glad I did.
They fly to the same point of impact as my field points, and slice like the proverbial hot knife through butter. True, you do have to take care to make sure the blades are fully seated. But that's small price to pay for a quality head that you paid a small price for.

The Blackout is little more than a G5 Striker, painted black, stuck in a Re/Black package, and sold for $8 less. It is THE sharpest mass produced broadhead right out of the package I have ever seen. Flight is very good, with its short ferrel, it is about as close to a field point as you can be.
