Have You Seen These New Broadheads?
Broadheads are always of interest in the world of hunting, particularly with those who enjoy hunting with a stick and string. After all, we hunters just can’t help but to delve into the specs and fine details of what goes on with the business end of our arrows. So check out this lineup of broadheads, all new for 2017.

1 | Wac 'Em Two-Blade Mechanical
The Wac ‘Em two-blade is a truly incredible broadhead. It offers a 1.5-inch cutting diameter and comes in a 100-grain option, which will work with most deer hunters’ setups. While this head doesn’t have quite the cutting diameter as other two-blades, what it lacks in that department, it makes up in sheer brute force. The design of this broadhead is fantastic, and I think you’ll be pleased with its results.

2 | Wac 'Em Three-Blade Mechanical
The Wac 'Em three-blade mechanical head is much the same in that it doesn’t disappoint. Also offered in the 100-grain option, it packs a punch but doesn’t sacrifice accuracy. Like the two-blade, it has a 1.5-inch cutting diameter.

3 | TRUGLO Titanium X Two- and Four-Blade Mechanical
I never expected TRUGLO to come out with a broadhead, but here we are. New for 2017, they’re offering their all-new mechanical four-blade Titanium Precision Broadheads. The four-blade option is designed to cause more hemorrhaging than those with fewer blades. It also comes in the two-blade option as well. So that’s something to remember depending on your personal preferences in a broadhead.

4 | TRUGLO Three- and Four-Blade Fixed
If mechanicals aren’t your thing, TRUGLO offers the fixed three- and four-blade options, too. The Titanium X fixed-blade head offers more penetration with the three blades or more cutting surface with the four blades. Again, it all boils down to your personal preference. This broadhead sports grade 5 CNC-machined one-piece titanium ferrule and .031-inch stainless steel blades. These come in the 100-grain option and come in a pack of three.

5 | Slick Trick Raptortrick
This is a mechanical broadhead that features a small profile during flight. However, it quickly opens up into a 2-inch cutting diameter. It has three blade position options including low, standard and high kinetic energy. This broadhead weighs 100 grains, has a stainless steel ferrule and uses .035-inch steel blades.

6 | Maxone MX2 Two-Blade
This new broadhead might not be well known, but it looks like it holds some promise. Made by Maxone, the MX2 two-blade offers a 2-inch cutting diameter and deploys smoothly upon entry. It has .032-inch stainless blades set up on the collar retention system that secures and deploys the blades. This head comes in 100- and 125-grain options and is sold as a pack of three.

7 | Maxone MX4 Three-Blade
This is Maxone’s new fixed-blade option. It utilizes multi-tapered blades that are pretty easy to re-sharpen when necessary. It doesn’t offer the cutting diameter that I’d like it to, coming in just shy of .75-inch. Like its mechanical counterpart, it comes in a pack of three in 100- and 125-grain options.

8 | Dirt Nap B.M.F.
Giving a deer (or whatever the game) a “dirt nap” is the whole point, right? Well, Dirt Nap’s B.M.F. (short for Both Mechanical and Fixed) does just that by combining the reliability of fixed-blades with the accuracy and cutting capabilities of mechanical heads. It has a 2.25-inch cutting diameter, improved ferrule and blades, and sports the Modular Weight System.

9 | Dirt Nap D.R.T.
The famed D.R.T. (Dead Right There) broadhead is an incredible fixed-blade option. It cuts like a four-blade but flies like a two-blade model. It has a 0.051-inch blade thickness and has a little more than one-inch cutting diameter, which is good for a fixed-blade broadhead.

10 | Bloodsport Gravedigger Extreme
This broadhead is truly something to look at and even better to shoot. It has two fixed blades that are 1.25 inches and two mechanical blades that create a 2.25-inch cut. That’s impressive. Other than that, it features mostly the same specs as the Night Fury Chisel Tip broadhead.

11 | Bloodsport High Voltage Three-Blade
The blade design on the new High Voltage is extremely aggressive and much different than what you’d typically expect of a mechanical head. The (very) curved design is different, yet highly effective. It sports a 2-inch cutting diameter, has the 416 hardened steel ferrule, and 420 stainless steel blades. And again, no cumbersome rubber bands or O-rings.

12 | Bloodsport Night Fury Chisel Tip
This new broadhead features the cross-opening blade design. They create an astonishing 2.25-inch cut-on-contact and the absence of rubber bands and O-rings translates to less energy loss upon entry. Like others in the lineup, it features the integrated chisel tip and patented blade retention system. It even boasts a 7075 aircraft aluminum ferrule.

13 | Bloodsport Nitefall Chisel Tip
This is truly an innovative design. It features an aggressive chisel-tip ferrule and two razor-sharp, 2-inch blades. Interestingly enough, a patent pending lock design will hold the blades in either an open or closed position. The best part of it all — no rubber bands or O-rings. These are made of 420 stainless steel and come in a pack of three.

14 | Rocky Mountain Broadheads Two-Blade Mechanical
Never heard of Rocky Mountain Broadheads? That’s probably because they haven’t really been around for a couple decades. However, they’re back and are so in grand fashion. These are two-blade, 100-grain heads that utilize reverse deployment. Also, they have a 1.75-inch cutting diameter. You can’t beat that.
