the atom

Have any of you tried the arrow dynamic solutions new "atom" broadhead? I am thinking that they look pretty deadly.

I just did a google search on them...I have to admit, I sure would not want to hit any bone with them.. They look light, and I bet they get pretty good flight.. but yikes, they look fragile?

I know Matt Futtere, owner of Arrow Dynamic Solutions and maker of the gullotine and atom. He's got some pics on the way that are pretty cool! Stay tuned smile.gif

Matt sent these along my way. Pics of some pretty big animals he's personally killed with the things.

To his credit, the atom has been put through its paces on everything from African game to hogs in the brushland of TX. The largest bow-killed deer in Maine last year was killed with the atom as well.

As an invite, Matt asked me to post his personal email address to answer any questions you have regarding the atom or the guillotine.

Feel free to drop him a line at wewentfishin at aol (Contact Us Please).

Those things look pretty funky. I bet they would fly like a field point. I don't know about the toughness or even sharpness seems like an issue, but my biggest concern would be the price. From what I saw ranges around $50 for two of them?????? shocked.gif Can't quite imagine losing an arrow with that tipped on it, good grief I'd have to spend ALL day and night searching for it...

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
