I'm looking for advice on a broadhead i should use ? I have a very damaged left arm i get shot's in it for pain and i must completley lock my arm out before drawing so i only am pulling 47 lb's on a bowtech kid's bow 28 inch draw i'm at the limit of what my left arm will hold. I'm looking for advice on what to shoot maybe some of you have kid's bowhunting or wives pulling low poundage curious about there set-up's and what broadheads they shoot and if they have taken any shot's what were the results ?

I have a friend who has a matthews set at 50lbs. He uses a three blade muzzy. He swears by them. When he shoots they fly straight. My bow is set for 60lbs and they do not fly well for me. I use rage and they are excellent! They fly really straight and they will not drop at all at 15 yards with your bow. Set your first pin at 20 and you should be set.

deerman: Please let me know how it goes!!! I wanted so bad to buy a three pack of the Montec cause I also use G-5's Tekan II and love them!!! I really like the look of those Montec's. If they fly good for you I might try them! Broadheads tail so bad for me though. I can see them drop or move right or left when they are flying through the air. I am really confident with the Rage though, super accurate! Good luck!

Shot all three sat. Here's my results at 20yds shooting a foam block rage was most accurate busted 2 arrows in 15 shot's impressive acurracy but little penetration avg 3 inch's in block but 1/2 inch groups. muzzy 3/4 to 1 inch groups but 6 to 6-1/4 inch penetration, montecs 1 inch groups but avg of 7-1/2 to 9 inch penetration. If i shot more poundage i think the rage are awesome but for me it will be the montec or muzzy leaning towards the montec and brett i had no tailing problems with the montec's took an extra few minutes to spin balance and get set up over the other one's but me and my friends could here a noticeable difference when they hit the target a loud whoop! even at 47 lb's. Bought a pack of g-5's and a friend gave me some strikers and spitfire's to try next sat.

I am assuming you did not use the practice tip that comes with the rage..... All three of my shots this year went right threw my deer. What did you do to "spin balance" your arrows?? Never heard of that. I will buy the montec's for sure now. I will try em!!

Brett i shot the actual broadheads i was trying to duplicate what they will do in the field sort of montec's are a small version of a broadhead i used to shoot called a snuffer which were devastating when they flew right . To spin an arrow tighten the broadhead down as much as you can without damaging the o-ring set the arrow tip down on a solid surface that will not let the tip slide grab the nock with 2 fingers and spin watch how the arrow spins looking for wobbles or erractic behavior gradually loosen the broadhead very small amounts until the arrow spins true i had to do this on the montecs and 1 muzzy my groups with the montec's was over 4 inchs b-4 doing this after groups shrunk to 1 inch with awesome penetration. brett if you want i have numerous broadheads you can try let me know and there yours if you want to try them.
