      I just received in the mail yesterday two test models of the new Eclipse Werewolf Single Bevel broadheads. I am going to run them through the paces and see how they fair. Upon initial inspection the head appears to be extremely solid and well constructed. I shot a few arrows today and flight noise is very minimal with the vented model and non-existent with the solid version. Accuracy is excellent as I would expect from a recurve shooting slower velocites. I have attempted to attach a picture of the heads below. These are expected to hit the market during the first part of May. I will keep you all posted on the testing as it goes…

      What are the weights on these heads?

      Polar Bear — There was a previous post with the same photo, by Eclipse owner Blake Fischer that listed the several weights to be available. Search back a ways and you should find it. Homer

      And if we can convince Blake there’s a market for a steel ferrule model, it will be even heavier! (I intend to nag and pester him about this until he either tries it, or comes out here and shoots me with one of the aluminum ferrules. :P) dp

      Does anyone know what the anticipated pricing will look like?
      I’m very interested in a high-quality moderate/low priced screw-in broadhead.

      Kestimator,

      In another thread Blake form Eclipse Broadheads mentioned that the price would be around $90 for six. They are sweet looking heads. I am currently using some Eclipse single bevel heads and they have worked well for me.

      I don’t know as though they will be priced that high because he could do Titanium ferrules for that…I have been extremely busy but am still planning on getting some testing done soon…I will keep everyone posted

      IC, they are going to be around $90/6 pack. A titanium ferrule would cost me almost $15 each, just for the ferrule, so I would be into a six pack $90 just in ferrule costs. I think that a titanium ferrule would be great, and there would be some people that would be interested, but I also had a minimum run of 5000 pieces to get the $15 price. If I could find an investor that wanted to loan me $75,000, I could make a titanium ferrule, but until I can find someone to make them for less money, or in smaller batches, no titanium.

      Thanks for the clarification Blake. I love the heads and think they are getting close to the best out there but I don’t know if my wallet loves them that much 😯

      Blake,
      How about that steel ferrule that Dave mentioned. I’d be interested. And I bet it would be cheaper than titanium.

      Josh,

      I think that the idea has merit, I wonder why no one else has done it?

      I will have to look into it. Hopefully I can get the Werewolves with the aluminum ferrule finished before I start something else.

      Maybe they’ve left it to you because you are more inventive and an industry leader. 😀 dp

      Several broadheads have been made with steel ferrules. Slick Trick Broadheads come to mind first. Another is Magnus Snuffer SS.

      Just have to balance the weight out… And the cost. The guy that’s really going to come out on top is the one that comes up with an Ashby design for the price of a Magnus.

      jgilmer,

      They are available for purchase at http://www.werewolfbroadheads.com

      They should be ready in about three weeks, so if you order now, be patient.

      Thanks,
      Blake

      Thanks, Blake. As you know, mine are already on order and I am uncharacteristically anxious to get some. For those following Blake’s website link, like me you may not notice at first how to go beyond the opening page. At the very top are the various weights available — click on those for more info and ordering. Also, Blake’s advertising fails to mention that the Rockwell hardness averages 53, which IMHO is the perfect balance between hardness and sharpenability. I was going to go this year with those neat new hollow-point broadheads with the laser light built in :P, as everyone knows how effective hollow-point broadheads are :lol:, but the pretty colors on the Werewolves won me over. dp
