That was fun to watch but I did get quite nervous a few times!

Dale does it without gloves. That is scary. I wore protection.

Holy smokes!
Guess I'm gonna have to try out some Woodsman's! Wonder how my Zwickeys would stack up?
All this talk about "razor-sharp broadheads"...it would appear on the surface that a mildly sharp Woodsman would out-perform a surgically-sharp China

That was a cool demonstration. Thanks for sharing. I like woodsmans but I don't use them anymore.

Wow that was impressive. Makes me wonder why more compound shooters don't use traditional heads

Because they're buying the hype. This just proves it's all BS.

Cool stuff. Wonder how a regular 2 blade COC head would stack up? Funny though, how these new style BHs rely on soo much force to even penetrate the hide.

Like Clay said, wonder why more compound shooters don't shoot old school COC heads? My guess is they've got soo much speed, it'd be almost impossible to tune them. Just a guess though, idk really. Been awhile since I tried tuning a compound.

Dale Carch from 3 rivers did a demonstration like this and he also used a 2 blade razorhead which was the best one. Even compared to the woodsmans. I got my buddies shooting woodsman elite 125 grains outa their compounds and they live the hell out of em. Like Kirk says to many of those guys believe the hype.i know I did when I shot wheelie bows.

Mildly sharp woodsman? :o

I honed them to a razors edge. Out of the package they are pretty dull.

Here is a video of how I sharpen them.

I'm sure yours were razor sharp, Ron. 8-)
I was just commenting that all the focus these days is on "how sharp your broadheads are", rather than the actual design and function...so that the shame is on you if you don't get adequate penetration because, well..."you didn't get them sharp enough". Not that the design is inferior...which your vid clearly shows IS the case with some of them, esp. the expandable. My guess would be if you pulled a mildly sharp Woodsman out of the package without touching it, it would STILL out-perform the others due to the design rather than how sharp the edges are.
