Rocket Aeroheads Sidewinder Mechanical Broadheads
I took these with me to florida for a hog hunt and had a not so good experience. I had a 100 lb hog show and upon shooting spined him which cool did its job but at 30 yds on a spine shot didn't expect the broadhead to be bent and smashed I made a follow up shot to stop the suffering and that tip had the entire tip get pushed inside the mechanical portion. The third tip from the package was fine and still have it today. It seems that their was or is some Quality control issues with the brand .... I will not be a repeat customer.

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.
