Sometimes you just have to buy somethingContributors to this thread:
Decided I needed to have some more VPAs. I actually ordered the vented 125s 1 1/8" model, but the solids showed up. I was going back and forth on which ones to get anyways, so I think I'll keep these. They look like a durable head.
If your bow is tuned you’ll love the non vented. Deadly quiet.
You know LINK, I never really bought into the loud arrow thing........until this past season. I shot my MN buck at 35 yards. My arrow was a Beman ICS Hunter camo 340 with a 150 grain Magnus Stinger and Blazer vanes with a right helical. I distinctly heard that arrow on its way to the buck, which I spined. I can't say he reacted to the noise of the bow shot or the arrow, but that arrow sounded loud for sure. Maybe I've got too much helical on my Blazers.
I really like the non-vented VPAs. I started with the 150 grain and shot my elk with it this year. I added some 175s and killed whitetails with them this year. Now I added some 175 wide and hope to fill my last tag with one. All have flown great for me. I have no explanation for buying the 175 wide when I do not recall not killing what I shot at with the regular 175. Like you said something you just want to buy something.
Yes, you will like them. I started with the 125 non vented and currently shoot the 150 non vented. I love them.
VPA is the best broadhead I have ever shot. And I have bow hunted for over 50 years. Had 1 VPA I killed over 25 animals with before I lost it. Forrest
GhostBird, I might get some 150s too. I currently shoot 150 grain Magnus Stingers out of one of my bows and want to go to a solid steel head. Here's my Magnus that was lodged in the spine of a buck I shot this year. Did its job so can't complain.
