Anyone ever sharpen QAD Exodus tips? I was messing around with a 125 head, and sharpened the tip with a flat stone Lansky. Just running the tip flat and rotating it. Gave it an edge and made it sharper than it was.

I've messed around with sharpening other head tips, but I thought the Quad Exodus tips were pretty sharp the way I bought them, so I didn't mess with them. I don't think a little touch up with a flat stone will hurt any though.

I've used a flat stone to hit the entire side, blades and chisel tip all together. Killed 3 critters with the same head. Both whitetails, pass through, shiras moose, didn't pass through, but bulged the hide out about 3 inches on the backside. Rouge carpet right to the carcass. Moose dead in 7 yards before he ate my lunch. I'm not sure why I'm considering iron will heads, cause the Exodus generally fly great and leave massive wound channels and exceptional blood trails. I do touch them up just a hint out of the package; that is if you can get them out of the package with all your flesh intact. I prefer the older swept blades, vs the newer full blades. Regardless, easily my favorite head of many: muzzy, NAP, rage, satellites, shuttle T lock. I really just want a razor sharp deep penetrating head for elk moose and grizz, thus my attraction to the iron will I guess... Just my 2ยข

Love those Exodus heads. Never had to sharpen a tip. But have several practice heads that r nicked. Gonna try that on them!

I had to sharpen a tip after a pass through and it hit a rock. No big deal sharpened right up. But I don't sharpen brand new heads as I dont believe they need it.

I have sharpened the tip after being shot. I replace the blades after I shoot something and use the dulled blades for practice.

Never tried sharpening the tip but man does the exodus blow through bone!
