      Well I used to think that a 2 blade broadhead that was hunting sharp out of the package was a myth. You know kinda like Bigfoot, Nessie, and foolish Whitetails. Then I bought a package of 200 grain Phantoms ($40 for three OUCH!). Shaved hair without so much as a touchup! Not that I don’t like sharpening stuff, but it is kinda nice to see a company that puts a bit of extra effort in. Now if only I could find one of them foolish Whitetails…

      Who makes Phantoms? Please describe the head and if possible, provide a link to a site that shows them. My instinct is to predict that a factory-sharp head is not real hard steel. As one broadhead manufacturer explained to me, the extra labor and time involved in doing a final sharpen on a head above 50 Rockwell or so would make them prohibitively expensive. But then, at $40 for 3, maybe that’s what you’ve found. dp

      Afraid I don’t know how to post a link but the company of manufacture is Muzzy. They are 100% stainless steel, 4-blade, and vented, but I’m not sure at what Rockwell they are produced. Anyone here know?

      Yup tis the same broadhead. Mine weigh 200 because I removed the bleeders. And as for the huge price difference, well we can chalk that up currency exchange, import costs, etc. Nuthin in Northern Alberta is cheap:(.
