    Default Why no more Braxe?

    man, i know now that these heads have been discontinued for a bit now, but i was so pumped to try one out this year when i stumbled across them on the net. I unfortunately didn't realize i was looking at an old post. Bur, im still wondering why these heads aren't available anymore? i hear the are great penetrating heads, and i would think that they would make a nice wound channel that would have a hard time closing up... just curious i guess.

    I have a pack and they are awesome I can't wait to put them through a deer and I hope they continue to make them.

    Even though they were a great head, people tried to use their own "common" sense logic and said that it would not penetrate well even though its one of the better ones out there in my opinion. I am guessing they quit selling them because people just were not buying them.

    I shot a deer shoulder with them today and they blew right through completely unscathed.

    Here's a test I did to see what kind of cut they make. It's very respectable imo.

    05- You are totally correct. This was one of the best performing fixed blades we have ever developed. The marketing on it was non-existent and it just died. The few people that shot the head absolutely LOVED it.....
