One And Three-Quarter-Inch Slice

One And Three-Quarter-Inch Slice

Hunting as a youth in Oregon, mechanicals weren't legal for big game, and still aren't to this day.

Hunting as a youth in Oregon, mechanicals weren't legal for big game, and still aren't to this day. Today, however, I am fortunate to be able to hunt in various locations across North America. Due to that fact, I've been carefully selecting broadheads for the type of game and shot expected. For my New Mexico spring turkey hunt, I chose to shoot a Grim Reaper Razorcut with a 1.75-inch cutting diameter. The Razorcut features three ground, honed and stropped 440C stainless steel .035-inch mechanical blades that have been basically flattened and widened in the back for durability on hits, plus a two bladed BulletRazor Tip blade, also owning a .035-inch thickness. We've all heard the horror stories of mechanical broadheads not opening properly on angled tree stand shots or sharply quartering shots, but the Razorcut's design addresses this issue by placing the razor bladed BulletRazor Tip 5⁄8-inch forward of the tips of the mechanical blades, therefore eliminating the popular o-ring design. This helps eliminate tip deflection from mechanical blades striking the target first at severe angles, and with the LockNotch blade retention system, blades are able to open with less energy, which saves Kinetic Energy for maximum penetration. I shot a Merriam's turkey in New Mexico this past spring at 25 yards and the shot didn't exactly hit vitals. The blades, however, opened immediately on impact at the turkey's wingbut and did a bangup job. The Razorcut can be shot with the blades opened as a fixed blade head or closed, serving as a mechanical and can be changed from a 100-grain to a 125 with an exchangeable collar.
