I shoot grim reapers, I prefer the 1 3/8 cutting head, seem to pass through deer no problem, moose on the other hand not so much. Poking hide on the other side, the moose bled internally but without a pass through I can see why. Went far enough in that he broke the arrow rather than had it fall out. Grims shoot great for me, I don't sling arrows at animals further than 40yards, never had issues with the grims!

Good luck to everyone out there

Born and Raised Outdoors are doing a huge broadhead test this week on like 40 different broadbeads. I shot grim reapers last year and had a real bad experience with them and switched mid hunt to muzzy trocars and they worked like a hot damn.
Personally Iím going to wait until after they post that test video to make up my mind but I really want to try Tooth of the Arrow this year and Iím anxious to see how the new collarless Rage mechanicals perform.
The farther one gets into the wilderness, the greater is the attraction of its lonely freedom.

Dude, thatís exactly my perspective on mechanicals. Archery hunting has always been a demonstration of Murphyís law: anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

After almost 20 years of shooting, Iíve arrived at Montec and Montec strykers. They group like a field point and pile up animals just as well as anything. The only shortcoming Iíve had with them was due to operator error.
