BlackOut FXD Cut-On-Contact Fixed-Blade Broadheads
RedHead BlackOut FXD Fixed-Blade Review
The Blackout Fixed Blade is cost effective. It does the job. It looks very similar to the G5 Montec CS but it does not have the same cutting power based on my comparison tests with a pumpkin (see video). Of course the Montec CS typically costs 33% more than the Blackout on average so the choice is up to you.

I bought these broadheads on sale to give them a try on wild boar. I've been using a similar design by another maker with satisfactory results. The Redhead BlackOut broadheads performed flawlessly. After making entry and exit holes the broadheads were sharp enought to shave the hair on my arm. I couldn't detect any damage to the blades after recovering the arrows from the ground. I shot them a few times to verify no change in point of impact took place. These broadheads are a bargain!

My son actually bought these two years ago, and he went off to the Navy, so I scavenged them, after having terrible results with other heads losing 3 deer in one season!
I have since used the broadhead and killed three deer. Each time the arrow had full penetration, sticking in the ground on the opposite side. This broadhead sliced through the vitals perfectly. All three deer were found within 50 yds of being shot.
They fly great out of my Dream Season EVO pulling 70lbs @ 29" draw length with a 380 grain arrow.
I have resharpened these heads and reused them to kill again.

get a sharpener
i hope you have a good sharpener because when i got these an opened them they were as dull as a butter knife. i took these and tried to cut a piece of paper and it woud not do it and i even put the paper on a flat surface and pushed the blade down and did a small sawing motion and it only put an indention in the paper. I have tried to sharpen these heads and it seemed to take forever to get a decent edge on them but i finally got it to what i consider good enough but not really where i would like them. I understand that we need to sharpen our heads but this was just rediculous and not something i would recommend
