The instant target is reached, the Piston Hammer deploys the blades without lever or cams, which can fail or deplete the energy of impact. Chisel tip finds the path of the least resistance for maximum penetration through hide, flesh and bone. Non-barbed design blades release forward for easy removal from target.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FF170 Worth it
I have not had the chance to shoot a deer yet but I have shot several wild hogs with this product and I would say the hogs were a great test to there affectivness. Both of the hogs I shot were quartering away and both shots went from the hind quarters and impacted in the opposite shoulder. The blades held up and full blade deployment occurred both times. The only things I would recommend would be to buy extra blades for hunting as the blades are hard to resharpen and to buy extra rubber bands. Overall I have no plans on changing broad heads and am fully statisfied with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bthesaltslayer Great Product!
I have used Rage broad heads over the years and they worked okay, the biggest problem I had was the blades not expanding. The broad head of my choice over the years would undoubtedly be the Muzzy MX3 which have performed perfectly for me the last 4 years. I have read the mixed reviews on the Meat Seeker and one thing you can say about reviews is, you don't know until you try. Trophy Ridge makes the best Drop Away arrow rest in the universe, so I figured I would give their broad heads a try. Bought a pack and killed a deer on my first hunt with these broad heads. Shot a doe at 35 yds right in the boiler room, rand about 40 yds and crashed in the brush. The blood trail looked like someone dumping buckets of red paint all over the rocks and grass. Used the same broad head on 2 more deer one week later with the same results. So far I am 3 for 3 on bow kills with these broad heads and will buy more for future hunts. The only set back is the rubber band used to hold the blades to the shaft. I would recommend buying extra rubber bands, but none the less they are worth the money. Even if the blades don't open, which is highly unlikely, you will still get a cut from the blades like a fixed blade. I would recommend this product to anybody!

I bought these heads because I wanted a head that would shoot like a field tip and they definately do. I have killed two big bodied does with these so far, both complete pass thrus with full size entry and exit holes, one went 20 yards and the other went about 50. Both times the head ended up flawless and completely intact ready to reuse. Can't beat em!

They wont open in your quiver unless you shove the arrow in too far. They have a retention band to keep the blades closed until impact and they FULLY deploy on entry. 3 blade has a smaller cut and is harder to get the bands back on after killing something with it.
I just started shooting these after seeing my brother cut a big doe for a flip and she hit the ground dead,no tracking needed but the blood was flowing like a faucet.I have not had any come apart but they do rattle a little in the quiver but adding a small piece of foam took care of that.I am including a picture of a buck my brother killed with the meat seeker.
