Which would you prefer for Elk?? I like the montecs but the strykers seem to be so much sharper. Anyone have any problems with the blades on stryker?? I know the montecs are tough as nails. Have hit trees, and if anyone ever hit low on Glenn Del buck there is a piece of rebarb in there. Little bent but still together

Ive always had good luck with the Montec. Ive killed one bull, 5 bucks, and a couple turkeys shooting this broadhead. Had one bend a little when I hit bone on a deer, it still flies good, I use it for a practice head now. Indestructable for sure. On the other hand, my brother has shot Strykers for years and killed a bull and many bucks with them, he has also never had a problem. They are much sharper and he has had more complete pass throughs than I. Maybe coincidence, maybe he is a better shot, don't know. It's hard to go wrong with either in my experience.

I like the strykers profile better, and I believe they have replacement blades right. Most fixed broadheads are tough as nails with some exceptions.

I just switched to the Montecs in 125 gr. They are deadly. I shot a nice Roosevelt bull this year with them and it went through the shoulder into the lungs at 50 yards and then he stopped at 75, and I hammered him again for good measure! Sharp and lethal!! My buddy is using the strykers and loves them to death they fly true every time.

I've shot the Strikers and I really like em, I've only shot deer with them though. I'd rather just replace with a razor sharp blade than try and resharpen it to razor sharp.

Update. Shot 6x6 quartering away behind last rib, almost pass through to opposite side shoulder, fletching held the arrow in. Bull ran 50 yards before piling up. Used easton fmj 340 @ 29inch long. Done a great job.

strykers, very strong, replaceable blades, never have to sharpen. Ive killed quite a few animals with mine and have no complaints yet.

I like the ability to change blades, so i use the strikers. I put a decent Muley down (complete pass through) and a good bull elk down. The elk was quartered away pretty hard. The arrow entered the left side right behind the last rib and was just starting to poke through hide immediately behind the opposite shoulder blade. I had nock visible on the left side and a bulge where the broad head was starting to come out on the right side.
