    Shuttle T-Locks 100gr. for big game and NAP Spitfires or NAP Shockwaves 100gr. expandables for Turkey. Tried alot of broadheads and these perform the best for myself so far.

    Making your own broadheads isnt hard,just time consuming. Use to cut them out of sheet metal years ago. Now for the stick bow I cut them out of flat sheet steel. Hardware stores carry it in strips 1/4-2 or so inch's wide. I buy the 1 1/2"x36" and cut each head/chunk off at 2",. I stocked up 2 years ago but I imagine its went way up. I grind the back down to where there's a "post" in the middle and thread it. It's not a "full thread" to fit aluminum inserts just enough to catch a few of the inserts threads then I put epoxy in with it and a little around the outside. I prefer to grind the general shape of the head then I sharpen it starting with a file and ending on a whetstone. I can usually salvage the heads on trashed arrows, these heads are as sharp and tough as any you can buy. have to watch getting the steel too hot when grinding it, quench in water often. It's untempered steel but tough when cut down to smaller sizes like this. Buddy of mine's a flint knapper but I havent used/tried his yet. Ive thought about having/learning to do that and making up a quiver full. If a guy has the time these are alot cheaper and just as tough if not tougher then my Muzzy's. I dont know for certain how I'd attach them to carbon arrows as Ive never messed with them. You can usually "eyeball" each one to keep the size's and weight's uniform.

    I use a 3 blade rage broadhead, All I can say is wow!!!!!!! The hole it left was amazing and large. The deer didnt go far and left a nice blood trail. They are well worth the money. My buddies always used a muzzy and they both said they were switching after seeing what the rage did to my deer.
