Indeed, I’d rank Zwickey right up there with Bear as “classic” broadheads. Yet, while I’ve used them to good effect in the past, the steel’s a bit soft for my tastes, being mostly an elk hunter. That’s why they sharpen so easily. Thing is, the easier a head is to sharpen, the easer it is to dull or tip-break on impact with heavy bone. It will always be a trade-off. If I hunted only deer and other relatively light big game, I’d have no problem using Zwickey and other well-designed heads with Rockwell hardeness down in the 40s. So in my mind, an essential part of broadhead choice should be dictated by what we intend to shoot ’em at. Right tool for the right job. IMHO
