I saw somewhere that Magnus is making a new RH single bevel broadhead in the 150 grain range. Any information on these bad chickens? I love the 2 blade stinger and would love to get my hands on some of these for this up coming elk season.

Hunting partner has designed a broadhead at Smith Brothers, to be released soon. Performs better than a single bevel, rh or lh depending on how you fletch. It was interesting to see different heads and their reactions in gel.

Re inventing the wheel.......I've shot fixed 2 edge exclusively for well over 20 years......I prefer single bevel because for me they're easier to sharpen. As far as killing any better than a double bevel of similar design & sharpness ........

Don't drink the kool-aid.

I am not sure how a BH could perform any better than the current 4 blade Magnus Stingers. I have killed many deer and pigs in the last 10 years using a 40# recurve and regularly get pass thru. Plus the they are so easy to sharpen up with a RADA tool. Either way I’m sure they will be a favorite of the single bevel crowd.

Straight blade dbl edge heads fletched with lots of helical stop rotating the instant they hit.

^^^And within a fraction of a second are through the vitals if hit where aimed. The arrows momentum & energy are pushing it through the animal,,,,rotation relevance ???...

Again I'm a single bevel shooter,,,, abowyer is my favorite ,,,,,but ive never killed a deer any quicker or dead'er with a single than with a double bevel.

I'm not drinking the kool-aid.

Bevel options are the ultimate difference with no distinction.

I've read the Ashbel studies long ago,,,and yes absolutely long 3 to 1 HEAVY 300+ grain single bevels have there place. Especially in the trad bow community.

I also believe a head 1/2 the weight traveling twice as fast from a compound is equal to or even better.

The apposed chisel edges of a single bevel breaking bone instead of slicing it makes sense to me,,, but its relevance on thin skinned animals ???

I shoot single bevel cause the durability of the tanto tip & I think their easier to sharpen.

The rotational aspects...... Does a rifle bullet loose energy cause it stopped spinning on impact !!!

Thanks guys. Was I enjoy the stingers so thought these might be a cool option as well. If I end up testing some on elk this year I will report back.

Stingers are a pretty dam good head for the money and have a good warranty too.

Magnus also has 150gr black hornets now which i'm interested in trying although I just added weight to my GT arrows with their FACT system. Never tried single bevel but I can't imagine it being that much better than a 4 blade black hornet. Either way, magnus makes excellent stuff!

How easy is it to resharpen the curved edge on heads like these? I've always had great luck using the a KME on Stingers.

I see no need to switch. The black hornet serrazors just plain kill stuff dead.
