Muzzy MX4

9 posts in this topic

has any one shot the new MX4s. I shot them and didnt like the way they flew past 25 yards. they seemed to start wabbling after that. i had other people shoot them on their set ups and they had the same problem. I sold them to a guy at work who wanted them and he told me he'd sell them back to me for half of what i sold them to him for. didnt have and problems with any other broadhead. has anyone else shot them or had the same experience??

Are you shooting the "practice blade"? If so throw it away!!I also purchased these broad-heads and the first time I shot it was like holy cow what happened. It was consistantly down and to the right every time at 20 yards. I was very upset, mad.gif then i looked and compared the practice blade and the actual broad-head and said wow! they were totally different. I tried shooting the real deal and they were right on the money. But if you were shooting the broad-head and its way off I don't know what to tell you sorry. confused.gif

Sometimes how your arrows are fletched will make a difference on how they will fly.

My son was shooting some new fixed broadheads and last year he was shooting mechanical ones and the fixed wouldnt fly for nothing.He went back to the pro shop and they said they needed to re fletch his arrows.Now,they fly perfect.

As Harvey mentioned, what kind of fletching are you shooting? I would guess you're gonna need an arrow with three 4" helical vanes/feathers for that head - or the shorter blazers/quick spins of equal stabilization. If you got that, does the bow shoot well with field points at that distance? If not, a little bow tuning is probably in order. Let us know how things work out for you. Later.

I bought one pack of MX-4s about a month ago....couldnt get them to fly right no matter what...just tossed them away. For the past couple of weeks I have been using G5 Strikers...fly true and sharper than muzzys out of the box...

That practice blade was JUNK for me also! mad.gif The regular broadheads shot alright though, but not as good as my tried and true Thunderheads. grin.gif

i am fletched with blazers on beman 400. The arrows look great going through the air with field tips. paper tuned fine. i dont have a problem at 40 even 50 yards with field tips. But at 30 with them MX4s it was not so good, jsut seemed like the arrow never stabilized. ill give the regular blades a try

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
