    Default New BH- Grave Digger Broadhead

    Has anyone seen this new BH called the Grave Digger? It looks very well made with great specs. Best of both worlds; fixed and Expandable. Kind of reminds me of a mech Silver Flame. Two blade is 1" wide and swing blades are 1 3/4" wide. That should make one heck of a hole. I have some on the way to test, but have heard they are very durable.

    Nothing new for the Grave Digger. Just an upgrade from these two heads from GameTracker.
    Marketing people know how to feed the male thought process of "Gotta have the latest version- it will solve all my problems".

    I'm interested in how you are going to shoot both those broadheads at the same time.

    That was my question. He said that there is nothing new with the Grave Digger and it was just a marketing ploy. It seems that the Grave Digger has combined the 2 heads pictured with a better opening and blade retention system. So how is that a marketing ploy?

    Per the website:

    Grave Digger blade retention.

    The blade retention system on the Grave Digger is simple in design with no rubber bands, O-rings or clips to hold them in place. Each blade has been dented to create a bump on the opposite side of the blade. When in place the bumps face each other. When closing the kickout blades these bumps cross each other and create a stable unchanging holding system. You can adjust the tension on the blades to your own likes by just tightening or loosening the screw pin that holds them in place. This gives the hunter that is shooting through ground blind mesh the opportunity to tighten the screw pin a little to assure the blades donít open on the mesh but do on the animal. The hunter can also adjust the blades looser if they are shooting low poundage and want to have the blades open easier.

    As far as being a ploy........ Meh...... Guess you could say that BUT. Besides the general appearance there are key difference. The main blade isground different. The mechanical blades are completely different and Id guess the old Game Tracker used bands?

    I just received some of the Grave Digger BH's and have to say that they look and feel great. Very well made. I will shoot them tonight. The main blade was hunting sharp ready and I really liked the way the swing blades opened and also closed. The head is also more compact than it appears in pictures. This BH appears to be the best of both worlds. Even if the swing blades did not open, and I can't see how that would happen, the BH would still put a hole equal to a 4 bladed ST or similar BH.

    How do you know if the tension/pressure is enough to not open when shooting through the blind screen, but will still open on the animal?

    well, i guess you could shoot through the mesh until you only see one slit from the main blade. if the secondary blades are opening on the mesh, i think it would look like a 4 blade had gone through it... not 100% sure this is right, bu it makes sense to me???

    I have shot them, they fly like darts and you can change the tension on the mechancial blades to make them easy to open or hard to open. Even if they do not open, you still have the main cut of the leading COC blade and the smaller side cuts of the side mechanical blades, still a 4 blade hole. They look like they are well made and very sturdy. If I get a chance I will try them in Africa next month on a plains game, but hte Ramcats will be my go to head for my lioness hunt.
