Rocket Aeroheads Sidewinder Mechanical Broadheads
awesome short blood trails
I have been using these heads since they came into production prior to Trophy Ridge purchaseing the company. They flat out never fail to deploy, they open up on a tomatoe and require little kinetic energy to deploy. Well over 100 animals harvested with zero issue, from elk to javalena, they leave a devistating wound channel with gapping entrance and exit wounds. Fly like field tips and blow through bone with the path finder tip. No issue of deflection on hard quartering shots. Your friends will think that you shot your deer with a shotgun slug. IMO WAY better then the highly touted problematic rage.

I have killed 27 deer and 14 hogs with these heads. the are as good or better than any head on the market. anyone who says the don't open is full of it unless you bent a blade or have debris wedged in it, it will open. longest kill 53 yards longest tracking 37 yards. you will have to replace blades once you shoot something but that's true of any replaceable or mechanical head. or at least sharpen them up. I would not hesitate to use on anything up to black bear. fly true and straight. if you cant get'em to fly TRY TUNING YOUR BOW! no broadhead will give great results from a poorly tuned bow.

Worth the money
Just bought these Broadheads a month ago, They flew perfectly the first time i used them to take a deer. It made a 1 1/2" hole. It went through meat and bone for a clean kill. I would reccomend these broadheads to anyone. I would suggest you buy extra rubber bands so you will have plenty to sight the arrows in.

Break too easy
Last weekend I shot an average-size Oklahoma whitetail buck with the rocket sidewinder. Admittedly, I hit the deer a little farther back than I like. The deer was broadside, so the arrow passed through both sets of ribs quite a bit behind the shoulders. The good news is that the broadhead opened well, and the deer only traveled 75 yds before expiring. The bad news is there was basically no blood trail (all internal bleeding), which I blame on the poor shot. My major issue is that a blade broke completely off and broke a piece of metal which holds the set screw. Now, the broadhead is useless, even with new blades. I don't mind buying new blades, but broadheads are too expensive to completely replace after each shot. I'm going back to something more durable.
