Default Bladeless Broadheads?

http://www.bowhunterssuperstore.com/...oducts_id=2454


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?

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

I wonder how those heads would perform with thick hide animals like Wild Boar?
