"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.
