My brother in law is part owner of Steel force broad heads. They are expensive, but well worth it. If you've had a problem with breaking one of them write them a short letter or send them an e-mail and they will respond back. The story about the how the company became what it is today is very interesting. The first owner only made about 300 sets of three a year, now the three owner as of 1998 are producing around 1.5 million broad heads a year. They bought the company when my brother in law was hunting in Africa and could not penetrate the game over there with what he was using, so one of the hunters said use one of these, he tried them and was amazed at the quality and penetration he got. From that point on the flight home his hunting partners got in touch with the owner and purchased the patient. The guys who own the company are big time hunters. so if you have trouble with there product they are pretty responsive.
Chris, I used the sabertooth 125 grain heads on my Buffalo hunt and the Guide said he never seen a broad head do so much damage. It dropped the Bull with One shot, huge hole, blood gusher. And I like these also cause they have a life time sharpening. These things are nassstyy!
They made me a believer this year after this experiment....
.......Took a cleaned shoulder blade from a 3 1/2 yr old buck and sat it infront of my block. (I have wounded 2 hammers in the last 6 yrs by hitting the shoulder blade, muzzy and jakhammer) Shot this shoulder 4 times with the STEELFORCE and penetrated completely thru first 3 times, last time the blade was rolled a little and it hit the shoulder at the bottom socket joint. it still went thru it enough for a kill, even with the blade rolled..
Convinced me, went out and bought 2 packs of the 100's
My excuse for past unacceptable penetration is my short draw. I don't have the power stroke others have with longers draws.
back home we used to try out different broadheads on hogs the best we found is thunderheads... stood by them for years and still use them but have seen steelforce titanium serrated in action and definately impressive probably will switch myself when I run out of thunderheads
