No doubt you are familiar with the broadhead regs that specify a minimum diameter. If, however, you have ever tried shooting a broadhead vs. shooting a field point, you would get my point.

Fact is, broadheads tend to "wind-vane", thus ruining accuracy and causing untold game animals to suffer a slow, lingering death. They REALLY ruin accuracy in most cases.

First, let me say that I am in no way connected with any business that makes arrow tips in any way. And, obviously, I am not advocating field points for taking big game.

However, let me say that arrow tips that expand into broadheads "RELIABLY" on impact should be considered legal broadheads.
The main objective is to prevent wounding an animal, is it not?

At any rate, whoever made the decision to ban expanding broadheads has never tried to shoot with the conventional ones using a modern compound bow.

So what is the point???
