      This is my first year hunting with POC arrows. Any suggestions on broadheads? Two blade or three blade? I like the snuffers and have a set of screew ins and liked them pretty well but was wondering if the blades might bend or twist on a bone hit. But anyway any suggestions would be helpful.

      Depends on what you are hunting. Snuffers are good heads. There are a lot of great heads on the market.

      I personally like Grizzlys. I use old original Elburg 160 gr Grizzlys. I also use older 160 gr snuffers. However, I like the Grizzly because they fly much better and will penetrate bone better. Basically, you need to find out what you like and what works for you.

      I believe Denny Sturgis Jr. uses them and quite effectively it seems. I read his writings, and he has always taken some big game animal.

      I shot one Zwickey Eskimo last year. I’ve eaten most of the deer. This year I’m shooting the “No Mercies” left bevel with LW fletched arrows. I’ve got 3 Eskimos left on broken wooden arrows. Anyone know the best way to get them off the arrows so that I can use them again? Thanks, Dave

      heat up broadheads where the arrows goes in the broadhead, with a candle or lighter for alittle bit and twist the heads with a set of pliers. (BECAREFUL AND DONT BURN URSELF) one time i cut and burn myself tryin to get a broadhead off…lol

      I’ve used Bear razorheads, the original Snuffer and Zwickey 2 blade and 2 blade with bleeders. They are all good blades. I have killed deer with all of them. My thoughts on the 2 or 3 blade choice is I would only use 3 or more blades with bows 55# and up but I would use a 2 blade with any weight bow. Just my 2 cents.

      For broadhead removal, always use a vise. heat the head and most times gases built up from the heating glue will expel the shaft from the head. Some you might have pull out after heating.

      Well, as fate would have it I’m going be using the 2-blade, double bevel 145 grain Eclipse. They fly great with my cedars.

      For the longest time I was using Ribteks, I don’t even think you can buy them in the States anymore. Think they are now only sold in Aussie land, least that’s what I heard. I still have about a half dozen in the broad head drawer.

      About three years ago I tried some of the Wensel Woodsman’s, don’t guess they call them that anymore.

      Either way, my tapered cedars love ’em. I’m getting great arrow flight with them.

      Wouldn’t mine getting some more Ribteks though, does anyone know if those are still available somewhere or if someone has a secret stash and are willing to sell a few?

      These guys will be able to sort you out with some Ribteks. I imported some to New Zealand less than a year ago with no problem, these guys were good to deal with. archeryshop.com.au.

      Croatoan, what size Ribteks are you looking for? I think I know where some are.
