    Switched to Easton Injexion's this year Deep 6 ??????????

    I have zero experience in the D6 broadheads. So what is everybody using and how have they held up ?

    I have not shot Deep 6 either but due to the "skinnyness" of the threading I would lean towards an all steel head. I know that Trophy Taker is coming out with a steel Ulmer Edge but it is 125 grain only. I shot the Solid S30V 125 last year and loved them, by far the sharpest broad head I have ever seen. Solid makes a Deep 6 head in 100 and 125.

    I am getting a slight wobble with my fieldpoints even and I think it is related to the smaller shank. Probably sticking to my original plan and staying with the FMJ's

    I am shooting the Black Eagle Deep Impacts but with the Firenock outsert. I love them. They are time consuming to install but they have very tight tolerances and are very durable. Might be something to look at.

    Thanks but not really an outsert fan at all.

    You might want to try the Helix heads. Tim's wife has been using them with her Injexion's and has had great results.

    My Helix heads are in the mail. Just read too many amazing things about them, especially since they are compatible with D6 arrows.

    Can't wait to try em out.

    Let us know the test results once you get them.

    Well with some further testing I am back to the Injexions and feel they are giving me the best overall tightest groups, that's what I am after. I will say I have had 6 now that have had some slight wobble after quite a bit of shooting. After further testing I find it coming from the D6 fieldpoints so I will need to carry some extras all the time. I feel it is do to the reduction in the shank size and might be prone to the weak spot. You probably would not notice it shooting a bag target etc. However, I have been shooting through hay bales with the black mates behind them and they have been penetrating them in a big way. I seem to not have an issue with the standard shanked fieldpoints but the D6 have not held up as well in these same conditions. I will continue to test and monitor this as time goes by.

    Thanks for the update! Maybe they need to build the from different stronger steel. Aircraft Alloy and stainless steel would be a good choice IMO. Mike from Magnus won't produce a D6 broadhead due to he stated the shank will be to weak.
