Dead X Bowhunting Releases New Broadhead

Dead X Bowhunting’s latest offering is a 200-grain fixed blade called the Bloodflow.

An avid outdoorsman and hunter, John Stephen Smith of Pleasant Hope, Mo., transformed his passion into a way to help others, producing high-quality, impactful products for archery hunters under the Dead X Bowhunting brand. And, although Smith passed away earlier this year, his family, led by son Nick Vaughan, has decided to continue the company as a way to honor Smith’s memory and legacy.

Based in Republic, Mo., Dead X Bowhunting produces high-quality, deadly-sharp broadheads, as well as the Blind Bag hunting carrying case, a broadhead wrench, bow saddle/leg pack and more. All of the company’s products are 100-percent made in America, built by hand and come with a money-back guarantee.

“My dad loved the outdoors, was an avid bowhunter and had a vast knowledge of bowhunting,” said Nick, who will continue running the business. “In his honor and legacy, we are continuing his memory and dream — Dead X Bowhunting.”

The company specializes in producing high-quality, deadly-sharp broadheads that are 100-percent made in America.

In addition to the Big Game 2, Big Game 3 and the Slicer, a 2½-inch diameter broadhead that’s perfect for turkey head shots, Dead X recently released the Bloodflow, a 200-grain fixed blade available with a 1.25-inch or 1.5-inch cut in both right- and left-bevel. The head is built on a solid steel ferrule, with .062-inch-thick, razor-sharp blades that are more than capable of dispatching deer, elk and other big game. It’s available for $72.99 per three-pack.

All Dead X Bowhunting broadheads are crafted from the finest metals and are subject to strict tolerance specifications and extensive quality control, ensuring they’re exceptionally accurate and lethal. Dead X products are not sold in stores and can only be purchased online here.
