    The montecs will not feel as sharp, though they actually are. The angle of the blade is a lot less than other heads. Look at Archery talk theres a big right up on them. I've used them with a lot of luck.

    I used the Thunderhead 100 for a lot of years on elk and was happy but I must say I love the G5 Montec better.

    Great broad head, but the Striker G5 is sharper out of the package, flies great and doesn't have the noise issues.

    I haven't ued the G5's on game because they whistled out of my bow. My buddy used them last year when we hunted muleys and whitetails in SD. He was using the CS version and we hunted in some rain. His broadheads rusted very quickly after the rain. I think they are good broadheads but he was disappointed with the rust and how fast it came on.

    Have been using them for years. I did switch from 125 to 100 cs to make sharpening easier. Remember that most blades have a 23 degree angle on them. Montec blades have 30 degree ankle to them, it is harder to feel the sharpness.

    This is the way I sharpen the G5 an it works an it feels as sharp as any replaceable razor inserts. 1 piece of glass 4inch wide 12inch long. 1 sheet of 600 grit wet dry sand paper . 1 sheet 1200 wet dry sand paper . cut paper to lay on glass wet glass surface an both sides of paper surface. Push broad head back an forth on 600 just like on your stone then do the same on the 1200 an it will be razor sharp. When you are done. I have killed elk with the 125 g5 . an white tails. Good penatration . But blood trails weren,t real heavy , But they werent very long trails either.

    Just an FYI, I called G5 yesterday to ask about the regular montec stainless steel head vs the carbon steel. I had heard that the CS tends to rust fairly quickly. I explained that I was going to be in the backcountry for a week and couldn't risk having rusty broadheads if it rained. They suggested that I stick with the regular stainless steel model. The CS model is advertised as stronger and sharper, but if its rusty that's about as useless as hunting big game with a slingshot. I have used the montec on a dozen or so deer and love it.

    Have shot the g5 before. This last year I made the switch to the VPA Terminator. A TRUE one-piece head. G5 has pot welds in places. The VPA is CNC machined out of a single piece of steel. There is no head out there today that is tougher than the VPA's. I am happy with my switch.
