Broadheads of late are fairly pricey. It’s hard to find a great 3-pack of broadheads for less than $35 or $40. Cold Steel knew that and recently introduced an all-new polymer broadhead which is appropriately given the Cheap Shot handle. We briefly covered it at the ATA Show, but felt this to be such an innovative product that we wanted to share it again with deer seasons on the horizon.

These serrated heads will cut on contact and leave devastated wound channels. Do they fly as true or penetrate as deep as many of the top-end, 40-dollar broadheads on the market today? Typically, not. However, they are hard to beat when you’re only paying $1.21 per broadhead.

Luckily, you don’t have to worry about these rusting, corroding or tarnishing. And they hold up to weather better than most broadheads. Now, they do seem to be more brittle and break easier than some of the hard-metal broadheads on the market. But again, I refer back to the price as the justification for going with this option.

Personally, I don’t think I’d replace all of my broadheads with these. I like the durability and accuracy of the ones I’m already using. That said, if you just want some broadheads to experiment with, to use on varmints or small game, or you want to try your luck with these on bigger game like deer, it’s worth a shot. Pun intended.

After all, you aren’t going to find another broadhead that can beat that price point. And did I mention they’re made in America? A solid broadhead for an incredible price. Click here to buy them.
