6 New Broadheads for this Season

6 New Broadheads for this Season

Planning a successful bow hunt these days requires more gear than Robinhood could have ever imagined. But without the right projectiles, you risk injuring the animal, or not getting a clean kill and tracking a miles-long blood trail into unknown wilderness.

Broadhead technology continues to improve every year, with the market becoming saturated with more durable ferrules and razor sharp mechanical blades offering improved penetration. With all the options available today, choosing the right one for your next hunt can become a daunting task.

Petersen's Hunting has grouped some of the best broadheads to take down your next trophy. Check out these six great projectiles, and then make sure to match them up with quality arrows and bowsights to make sure you're right on target.

Flying Arrow Toxic

Chris Rager, who probably has the coolest last name in the hunting industry, formerly of Trophy Ridge and Rocket Aerohead, has formed a new company. Under the banner Flying Arrow, he brings the archery world the Toxic broadhead. A three-blade fixed head with wickedly curved blades, the Toxic has a 7⁄8-inch cutting diameter with nearly 5 inches of total cutting surfaces. The chisel tip punches the initial hole while the open slot on the backs of the blades allow them to flex open upon meeting resistance for increased penetration.

Price: $45/3

Rage Hypodermic

Rage revolutionized the mechanical market and continues to do so with their new Hypodermic broadhead that features a precision-machined, solid-steel ferrule and a hybrid tip design that boasts needle-like sharpness combined with the initial impact of a chisel tip. The Hypodermic boasts two surgically sharp .035-inch stainless blades that open upon impact to produce a 2-inch cutting diameter. Available in a standard 100-grain or Deep Six 100-grain models.

Price: $50/3

Muzzy Trocar

Muzzy\'s three-bladed Trocar is a fixed-blade model with a solid-steel ferrule and razor sharp .035-inch thick blades arranged in a helix design. The Trocar delivers a 13⁄16-inch cutting diameter '¨and flies with fieldpoint-like accuracy. Available in four variations: a standard 100-grain head, a Deep Six 100-grain blade, a 100-grain crossbow broadhead, and a 125-grain crossbow model.

Price: $30/3

New Archery Killzone

Nap\'s Killzone is a rear-deploying, two-bladed broadhead now available in a variety of configurations, including 100-grain cut-on-contact tip, Trophy Tip, or Deep Six versions, as well as the new 125-grain Killzone, the 100-grain Low KE Killzone, the Crossbow Killzone, and the Killzone MAXX, which delivers a 23⁄8-inch cutting diameter and a new super durable ferrule design that creates an increased frontal area for bigger cuts and deeper penetration.

Price: $40-45/3

Slick Trick Nuke

Slick Trick\'s latest innovation is the 100-grain Nuke, a dual-blade mechanical — the first mechanical in its line — that features a 4-edge, Super Steel tip and .035-inch custom knife-grade blades that remain at 1.3 inches in '¨diameter when closed but open to 1.8 inches upon impact. The EZ Open blades will spring back to flight position should they get bumped prior to '¨use. The ferrule is made from light yet '¨durable aerospace-grade aluminum.

Price: $40/3

Trophy Taker Ulmer Edge

Trophy Taker expanded the Ulmer Edge mechanical line in 2013 to include two new models, including a stainless steel standard thread with a 1½-inch cutting diameter designed for small diameter arrow shafts and a stainless Deep Six thread 1½-inch cutting diameter model. Ulmer Edge broadheads are twin-bladed, rear-deploying mechanicals with a unique blade design created to allow blades to actually pivot around heavy bone upon impact. Blade backsides are sharpened to enhance cutting and bleeding in the instances when no pass through is achieved.

Price: $50/3
