    Default Bladeless Broadheads?

    Would these be worth trying out? The concept certainly decreases surface area. and they just might fly like field points! without the need for a mechanism.

    What are your thoughts?

    I have seen the damage those BH's can inflict. They look weird but leave HUGE holes!!

    wonder how they would hold up if you hit bone? How about ribs?

    Any body do any testing on these? kind of costly

    After reading the review I would have to say pass,

    Doesn't sound like you would get a very good blood trail on a iffy hit.

    It's pricey, but after taking another look at it, sounds more durable from the description than at first glance, interesting to hear some reports from kills
