First Mechanical Broadheads
Think the mechanical broadhead is a recent development? Archers had been experimenting with expanding broadhead blades for decades before Greg Johnson brought us the first Rocket Aeroheads in the late 1980s. Just a few of the early attempts at creating wider wound channels include, left to right front; 1956 Mohawk (in open position), 1959 Geronimo (open), 1972 Pioneer Game Tamer (a.k.a. Pizza Cutter) and 1983 Viper. Top, left to right, are modern versions of the mechanical broadhead, including Rage 125, Steel Force SOB, Swacker and Rocket Sidewinder.
