For you guys that live in "no barb" states and shoot Sevr's....have you asked your F&G/DNR about the locked open feature and whether it's considered a barbed BH at that point it locks open? I'm curious how that is interpreted by those agencies.

"Lock-and-Pivot™ Blades – SEVR’s patented Lock-and-Pivot™ non-barbed blades are fully contained in the ferrule, then lock open on impact. The blades then pivot as needed to keep arrows driving straight through game even on steep quartering shots and bone impacts. This increases penetration versus regular rear-deploy non-pivoting broadheads. "


The blades fold forward so they shouldn’t be considered barbed. They only lock from the blades folding back into the ferrule. The blades fold forward similar to Rage broadheads if pulled backwards once the blades have been deployed.

Not barbed.

Ok...thanks. That makes sense. The "lock open on impact" claim led me to believe they stayed barbed once locked.

Sounds like they tried to take care of your question in the description. Says right there "non-barbed"
