Question My broadhead choices for this year

I really like the idea of being able to re-sharpen broadheads so I am leaning towards a one-piece BH. I haven't done any testing but am trying to narrow it down to a final few. My ideal BH will be able to be re-sharpened, fly well at a good distance and have a favorable blade angle for good penetration. If you have any suggestions please let me know, also, if I have missed any good ones to look at.

Not in any particular order:

1) G5 Montecs
2) NAP Hellrazor
3) Tooth of the arrow
4) Wasp Drone (I know its not a one-piece but I have heard they fly awesome out of many set-ups)

Been hearing a lot of good things on here and elsewhere on the Internet about the Tooth of the Arrow BH's. They look sweet. Plus definitely a bonus that they are machined out of one piece of metal. They look easy to sharpen as the blades run right up to the point. Gonna try some of those this year maybe.

I have a buddy that swears by the G5 Montecs. Sweet BH as well if you can get them tuned.

If you’re ok with dropping some coin on a broad head that’s more than just replaceable blades you can check out ironwilloutfitters.com I don’t own some but hear great things, the quality I hear is outstanding

The steel in a montec is junk. The hellrazor is better but if you keep looking you’ll find VPA. They’ve taken that design to its conclusion by machining it from one piece of good steel. No welds like the NAP head, not cast, sintered steel like G5 and both thicker and tougher then the unmentioned snuffer SS.

I shoot the 1-1/4”, 150 grain version.

TOTALLY agree with this statement.

I have been using Stingers with great success.
