    Default Test head, is it possible???

    I was jus curious if it was possible to get a test head. I'm very interested in these broadheads, and would really like to try one with my set up before I purchase them. If not I completly understand and will not be offended in anyway. It was just a curiousity I had. Thanks.

    Thanks Dustin, for sharing a head and helping to expose people to the benefits of a single bevel three blade.

    We are currently in the process of updating our website and I think I'll have the design guys add an option to purchase just one head if people would like in order to be able to test them. Thanks for the idea.

    Well i got the pheonix today, thanks again dustin. And i took it out and shot it. WOW. that all i can say. Those things are amazing. Spiral wound channel. By far the most durable bh ive ever used. It went through in this order, target, 1/4" plywood, 1/2" plywood, 2 by 4 block, and then a cement block. Its not sharp enough to hunt with and one of the blades broke by the base. Ill take that any day of the week after all that punishment. Like i said WOW. 5 stars. Oh that concrete block took an arrow in the process.

    I am sure I will get flamed for this but I have been shooting a phoenix as my practice head that has a cracked vent. It still flies true and I have not had any issues. I am in no way saying people should do this but I think its a testament to the phoenix and just how well its built.

    That's ok, I still shoot one for practice that has the tip folded over. The ferrule is straight and it flies true to all my other fixed blade heads.

    How did you get the tip to fold over??? I killed a cinder block with the thing and it didnt fold the tip.

    There was a rock hiding on the other side of the turkey I shot last spring. The arrow hit with a glancing blow.

    Believe me, the broadhead fared better than the arrow.
