    Hey to all, I was wondering how shoot-throug nettings work with mechanicle broadheads. I shoot the G5 tekan II broadhead and was wandering if there is enough force to open the blades when shot through the netting?

    First off :welcome: to the forum hope you enjoy it here we are a very friendly bunch and try to help everyone. Until we get to know you then look out.:laugh:

    I've never used netting but have always been told not to used mechanicals with it.:noidea: I would think the resistance would open the blades a little early though.:peace:

    Welcome !

    I tried this with my NAP Spitfire 100's.

    The blades opened, however it was unclear if they opened as a result of the netting or target. :cool: You almost need to have a slo-mo video to see what happens. I will say that I did not hit the spot I was aiming for after trying 3 times, so either the blade(s) begain to open or the netting interfered with the shot each time. When I took the netting out I hit my spot on the target.

    I'll take a pass on the ground blinds with "shoot-through" netting.

    netting

    I hunt with rocket/xl & i wouldnt recommend shooting thru or near brush,netting, or anything .
    they are the most accurate at long range,awesome on longbeard's.
    but i have had them open on a leaf and spiral out of control.:biggrin1:
