Saunders Bludgeon Small Game Head
I have not killed a thing with these tips yet, but I have confidence in their ability to do so. They fly almost identical to field points and can take a beating. To really test them, I set up a piece of 3/4" plywood. At 30 yards, they we penetrating, at 20 yards they sailed right through punching a nasty looking hole. And all with no damage to the head itself. For reference, I'm shooting a Browning Myst at around 70 lbs, and 5575 goldtips for shafts.

I wanted something to do between deer and turkey season that would keep my interest so I got these to try out on small game like tree rats and birds. The first bird I shot with them it blew him back about 3 feet and almost ripped his wing off. They fly great and they bounce back allowing you to reuse them time after time. Great on you arrows and keep up their durability plus their made in the US. Very pleased with this product.

What a wack
I consistanly have squirels in my back yard so I keep my bow by the door. Before I was using the Judo points but they were a pain! Always ended up in the animal, not very easy to get back out, destroyes alot of meat, and a real pain to clean. But these Bludgeon's, awesome. You release, you hear a real good loud smack, the squirel pops up and it's all over. Plus your arrow is not attached to the squirel incase one goes make it up the tree.

Waste of money
I shot the same rabbit THREE TIMES with this tip and it eventually got bored, and hopped off going on its merry way like nothing had happened. The arrow shaft was covered in blood and fur, but didn't put it on the ground like I would expect. Granted, I wasn't aiming for it's head. Just pounded holes in its body. I'm going try those judo points next time.
