    Broadheads

    I am having trouble deciding which broadheads for my 2012 Muley hunt. It is between the Ulmer Edge and the G5 Montec. I have always been skeptical about mechanicals but this looks like a great head. What are your thoughts?

    Depends on your KE. Give me your specs and can find it out. You need probably 60 ft lbs of KE to be efficient but shot placement is key. I have 80ft lbs of KE on my evo and 95 on my omen so I can use mechanicals. I say try both on your bow through your hunting setup and see what your results are.

    460 grain arrow moving at about 280 fps. It puts me right about 80. I am not worried about the ke. I am just having a hard time deciding.

    I would shoot both and see how they fly and go with the one that flies the best. I am switching to ulmers next year and t3's this year. Good luck and scheels has ulmers for $35 a pack.

    Sweet thats the cheapest I've seen them! I imagine the ulmers will fly better.

    I am not sure, I couldn't get rages to fly right with my arrows that are the correct spine. If you have montecs I would keep them for elk and larger game and use ulmers for deer and pronghorn and smaller game. That is what I am doing but completely up to you.

    Ya it sounds like a good idea I just can't wait to get my hands on them and test them out!

    I used montecs last year shot very true to my field points trying some wacems this year they seem to be as true,sharp,strong and consistent as the montecs but with replaceable blades.

    I killed a pig in February with NAP Thunderheads. They fly like field points and are inexpensive. I have some Solid Broadhead Company ones coming, but haven't received them yet to test them at the range. If I get the archery cow elk tag, I plan on using these with the Thunderheads as back up.

    Look at Phoenix 100 from http://www.redfeatherarchery.com/ they are a small company the guy that grinds them is a teacher and huge elk hunter in Oregon. I have used them on whitetail and they are amazing!! I guess I have a soft spot for those small companies that are hunting crazy and made in the USA!!
