broadhead question

4 posts in this topic

Right now I shoot rocket steelheads, which perform great. But last year I got a new bow and am now pulling back 70# and a 30" draw. I figure I can now shoot a bigger diameter head. I hear great things about Rage Broadheads so that would be one option for me. The Rocket Sidewinders look really similar to the steelheads though but they do have a 1.5" cutting diameter. Another one that caught my eye was the Undertaker(rocket bought out piston point).

So here is my question. Who shoots Sidewinders and have you had good or bad experiences with them?

Any and all input will be appreciated!

I know several people that swear by sidewinders. These guys shoot several deer each year and won't think of changing heads. Once they shoot a deer with them they usually don't reuse the head. I don't think sidewinders are quite as tough as the steelheads though and if I hit the shoulder I would prefer the steelhead for penetration.

The sidewinder has my vote hands down. 1.5 inches is big enoght.

The Sidewinder's a great head. Pretty much the same tip as the Steelhead, just larger cutting diameter. I'll be using them in SD this spring since you can't have anything larger than 1 7/8".

      Not a good sign when the thumb doesn't fit in the mouth.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
