New Mechanical Broadheads for 2019
January 10, 2019
Dead Ringer Hatchet
Developing bone-crushing broadheads for years, Dead Ringer adds to their long line of successes with the new 100-grain Hatchet. Truly living up to its name, the Hatchet is manufactured out of carbon steel and features a patented rear-deploy blade system that seamlessly opens upon impact every time. Delivering a massive 2-inch wound channel, the Hatchet’s chisel tip design and surgi-cally sharpened steel blades plow through flesh and bone with ease.
Expanding on their Aero Series this season, Innerloc introduces the new 100-grain Carnage broad-head. Secured in Innerloc’s exclusive aerodynamic wrap, upon impact the three .04-inch rear-deploying, razor-sharp blades slice through the wrap without fail and lock into place to deliver a cutting diameter of 1.5 inches. The wraps are replaceable and available in multiple designs.
NAP Dark Knight Titanium 150
NAP’s new Dark Knight Titanium 150 broadhead combines the cutting power of a fixed blade with the stability of a mechanical. At its foundation is the one-piece titanium ferrule with a deep penetrating titanium tip. Upon impact, this 150-grain four-blade goes to work with its two-stage deploying blade system. Once deployed, the main stainless steel blades lock together to ensure a maximum 2-inch cutting diameter, but unique to these blades are their ability to pivot around bone and then re-center to provide better penetration. Combine this with the bleeder blade that adds an additional 1 1/8-inch cutting diameter and you can visualize the devastation the Dark Knight Titanium 150 delivers.
Rage Hypodermic NC
Once again, Rage proves that innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower with the new Hypodermic NC. Featuring a lethal Hypodermic hybrid-style tip and needle-like ferrule, the Hypodermic NC’s streamlined design ensures field-tip accuracy, and upon impact, the two .035-inch-thick blades slide into a swept-back position to deliver a gaping 2-inch slap-cut wound chan-nel. The genius behind the Hypodermic NC is the revolutionary finger-like tabs on the blades’ Slip Cam that “pin” them in place while in the closed position, completely eliminating the need for a Shock Collar or O-ring. Upon impact, the blades seamlessly deploy to deliver the blood-letting devastation bowhunters have come to expect from Rage.
Ramcat Cage Ripper
Guaranteed to deploy with every drop of the string is the new Cage Ripper from Ramcat. While in flight, the Cage Ripper’s low-profile design is not only extremely quiet, but the patented Concave-Scoop tip delivers both pinpoint accuracy and deep penetration. Upon contact, the unique piston-driven deployment system engages a spring mechanism that deploys the ultra-sharp steel blades at precisely the right time, and once fully engaged the Posi-Lock Plunger System locks blades open to for a 2-inch cutting diameter from start to finish.
Rocket Meat Seeker
Revamped and reloaded is the new Meat Seeker from Rocket Broadheads. The first mechanical broadhead I ever used was a Rocket, and I was just as impressed with them then as I am now. Available in both compound and crossbow models, the Meat Seeker is a piston-driven mechanical that is guaranteed to open every time. Upon impact, the three ultra-sharp .035-inch-thick blades de-ploy to produce a cutting diameter of 2 inches with an overall cutting surface of 3 inches.
With the ability to micro-adjust the blades for enhanced penetration, SWAT adds to their growing line of effective broadheads with the new Vector. Lighter and stronger than titanium, the Vector’s ferrule is constructed of 7075-T6 aluminum and is equipped with an X-OUT razor tip that starts the dirty work. Upon impact, the four stainless steel blades swing into place to deliver the final blow. The blades can be micro adjusted to deliver cutting diameters ranging from 1inch to 1.75 inches, giving you the ability to match the broadhead, bow’s draw weight and overall kinetic ener-gy to the type of game you’re after.
Swhacker Levi Morgan Model 261
Engineered to the demanding specifications of Levi Morgan, the World’s most renowned archer, the new #261 broadhead from Swhacker blends broadhead technology with field point accuracy. Its chisel tip design coupled with its unique arched blade design reduces resistance as it plows through game with ease, and the new reinforced ribbed ferrule delivers up to 20 percent greater strength and rigidity to enhance its already bone-splitting capabilities. Upon impact the sharp 1-inch wing blades cut through the hide initially and then swing the primary blades into place to deliver a 2-inch wound channel. The #261 also features Swhacker’s advanced blade lock technology which locks the blades in the closed position so hunters can practice with the heads they hunt with.
