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...

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
