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...

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
