I often think about when to replace a broadhead. Most of mine aren't sharpenable so I replace them when they dull. I've been told they should be replaced after every shot, but I make em last at least three shots. I wonder if by the third shot, they still do the job 100%? Any thoughts?

For the cost, even at $10.00 a pop, I replace them after every shot. I turn any shot broadheads into my practice heads. I honestly don't even reuse the arrow as a hunting arrow if I killed a deer with it. I would hate to loose a deer on a arrow that had already seen action and wonder if the blades were dull. Plus, crashing into bone puts a lot of stress on carbon or aluminum for that matter. For me, one less thing to worry about.
