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

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.

      Captain Acorn, I fish Jiggin Raps quite a bit on Vermilion, have for several years now.  I Cast em, fish them vertical and move around and cover ground at a good pace with them.  I am not sure there is any key to getting snagged less, other than knowing your spots. They are certainly an effective and a great way to catch fish.  I personally do not remove either the front or the back hook.  Believe me if you fish these your going to donate a few to the depths, just part of the game.    Good luck! - Roosterman
