the way they work- they'll eat up your inserts when they expand.

They come with steel washers to keep your insert from getting beat up, you buddy want to trade for some mx-3 muzzys or sell the tekans?

tekan BHs com with a small washer to protect the insert. I switched to them after seeing what they do on several deer. I like the fact that they are solid stainless instead of rivited together like some. they also tend to fly very true.

Just recieved my tekan IIs & after inspecting them I was worried that the tip might not be as sturdy as the originals are. They look solid to me and should be able to hold up without curling over against heavy bone. They open with the same amt of pressure for each head. Glad the blades are .40 too! Fit and finish are great. Although I must say that I think the blades could use a bit of extra sharpening. Other than that I cant wait to use them!!
