    New rear deployed broadhead

    Was watching a new episode of Western Extreme yesterday and they showed a new broadhead. I don't remember the name, but basically it is built into the nock and has a sleeve with your fletches on it. When the fletches hit the animal the sleeve comes off and the 8" blades are exposed and opened up. Did a good job on the warthog he shot. So you pretty much have 2 broadheads on your arrow as long as you get a pass through.

    Pretty cool idea I think.

    Yeah I saw it! It looked cool, but seems like a lot of weight to add to the back end of the arrow like that.

    I want to say Ravage Vanes is the name. If you go on the website they speak of the benefits of adding weight to your arrows.

    Yes but weight in the back takes away from FOC. This takes away from penetration, broadhead stabilization, and it takes away from the reduced wind drift that FOC helps with.

    “Its a fact: A lighter arrow will always leave your bow with less penetrating energy than a heavier arrow shot from the same bow”North American Hunter Magazine, June/July 2011 issue.

    Ravage Nocks add approximately 125 grains to the rear of your arrow with a standard insert.*We provide a 125 grain counterweight for the front of your arrow which maintains your current F.O.C.. The total weight added to an arrow is 250 grains. This puts the average carbon hunting arrow in the 600-700 grain range including a 100 grain broadhead. This has proven to be a very efficient weight range for maximum penetration and good trajectory. Again, not*our*opinion but fact, backed up by research.

    It's a cool idea just not very practical IMO.

    I am sure I would find a way to get them open in the quiver. Then I would slice myself to ribbons on 'em before cutting my bowstring and knocking my teeth out with a limb....

    Cool idea, but I'm a bit skeptical. If it adds extra cutting surface, it also adds drag, and reduces the probability for a pass through (& bleeding). If you put a Rage, Reaper, Muzzy, etc., and make a good shot, that's more than enough.

    I think it's a great idea but what is it called and where do I get this "broadhead." I have never been a fan of front mounted mechanical broadheads but this one operates only after the front broadhead has penetrated to the fletching. I will always believe that good shot placement is tantamount to a clean kill.
