Pretty sure the guys who make them are semi-regular here...

Plenty of great heads still made in the USA if you’re willing to forego the moving parts...

For those of you that have used or do use them how do you guys practice with them? I have seen some glue blades shut. Never shot mechanical, but want to use some for upcoming bear hunt.

I use Gorilla Super glue gel. I still leave the o ring on there for some reason.

I use bent blades to practice with. When the section of blade that goes into the ferrule has a tiny bend in it , it holds the blades closed. The only “ problem” is that you need pliers to close it each shot.

Just don't practice with them. Works for me. And I'm serious. I used to practice with mechs but I am far past that. I've only ever bought quality mechanicals and I have never ever had one NOT fly perfect. Tune your bow with a big fixed head, and you will not have any issues.

Shug,

Thanks for that tip. Looks like I will have several options.

For the most part I do as APauls has mentioned. I like to confirm things once in a while, especially longer shots. When I do I either have a head designated as a practice head or I replace or sharpen the blades as needed.
