  • Q:

    What length of broadhead adapter is recommended for these (I'm hoping to use these on a carbon arrows)? Short or Long?

      A:

      Both the short and long will fit in the Howard Hill broadheads. They use an industry standard 5 degree taper, so both will fit. The Long provide more gluing surface, which can help with strength and straightness.

      A:

      Any adapter, long or short, will work. Steel, brass, etc as well. It's a
      function of bow poundage, correctly chosen arrow spine for your needed
      arrow length, what Forward of Center ratio you're trying to achieve, etc.
      I'm a low poundage shooter (shoulder damage) but I shoot 12 gr./ in.
      This past season, with a 30" 340 spine arrow and a 75 gr. steel adapter, I
      had two pass-throughs on mature Indiana does (130 lb-ish) at 16 and 18
      yds. This is a good head design but one really needs to understand
      sharpening skills on this concave edge.
      Hope that this helps. It certainly isn't a simple, concrete response.

  • Q:

    How well have these heads performed in hunting situations? Do they get good or poor penetration, do they handle hitting bone well? I've read about how well they fly and how hard they are to sharpen. But I have not seen anything on how well they work on animals. If anyone has any information I'd appreciate it.
    Thank you,
    Richard

      I just switched to these heads and so far I love them once you get an edge on them they stay like a razor and the fly great. I haven't got a chance to hunt with ten yet but I have heard they are fantastic.

      A:

      Sharpening can be a bit of a nuisance, but this long, narrow design penetrates incredibly well. It’s thick enough up front and supported strongly enough by the ferrule to keep bending or curling to a minimum. Not necessarily a bone splitter always, but it was okay for elephants....

      A:

      The long ratio gives these heads great penetration. The overall design helps to strengthen the tip and reduce curling. As long as you can sharpen them they are a great head.

      A:

      I killed a good sized pig with one early this year. The howard hill broadhead I sharpened with a file which left some fine "teeth" on the edge. I was shooting a 60 lb. draw longbow and the range to the pig was about seven yards. The pig was around 175 lbs. and trotting by. The arrow struck his left side behind the shoulder and penetrated completely through the thick hide on both sides (about 3/4" thick hide on the shoulders) and the point end of the arrow was sticking out about ten inches on his right side.
             We trailed the pig for about 150 yards and found him dead. Within about ten yards of the shot we started finding good drops of blood, which increased to a steady stream of blood flow shortly before we found him. I am happy so far with the performance of this broadhead, hopefully will have more experience with it soon.

      A:

      These heads penetrate very, very well. Test one out on your block target or similar dense backing and take a look. With a wood shaft providing the weight, you will probably get at least the point through a rhinehart if you're drawing a 70 pound bow. Its enough to pierce ribs easily. I can't speak for what will happen if you clip a shoulder, though.
      I hope this helps.

  • Q:

    I have some old 160 grn broadheads and have never been able to put a sharp edge on them. Is there a specific technique to sharpening these broadheads?

    • A:

      I am going to give a nontraditional answer to this which some may find objectionable. These broadheads do not have to be razor sharp to do the job on hog or deer. Most of them will penetrate well right out of the box. It is the design and weight of this broadhead that gets the work done. I have taken large hogs out of a fifty pound bow at 20 yards with fir arrows, one with a shoulder shot that penetrated six inches out the far shoulder using heads much less than razor sharp. That said, I do work them lightly with a file maintaining the factory angle but they are far from shaving razors. You hit what you are supposed to hit, they work as well as any broadhead.

      A:

      You can take a china dinner plate that has a dry foot in the bottom. That's the part that touches the table. Then put the broad head on a shaft spin to make sure it's straight then stroke over the foot of the plate keeping the angle correct. Do both sides. After u feel it's fairly sharp give it one stroke on both sides. Be well. Maddog

      HH heads are tough to get razor sharp.... Best to use the traditional approach of filing to a smooth edge and then using the file edge to "rake" serrations. Serrated heads kill very effectively!

      A:

      If you are having difficulties with a file try the CC sharpener. That will allow you to get a pretty good edge on them. Just clean them up with a leather strop afterwards and you should be good to go.

      A:

      I was thoroughly unimpressed with the factory edge that came on these broadheads. The blades had literal flat spots on the cutting edge. The instructions that were sent with the broadheads were of absolutely no help. I ended up taking a Dremel tool, and a coarse, and then fine sanding wheel to them. I got a serviceable edge, but not a super, razor sharp one. Again, I used a sanding drum attachment, not a grinding wheel. Probably would not buy these again, but they do look classic.

      A:

      I use a narrow diamond hone, these days. (3/4” wide x 4”long, Medium grit) Sitting with the hone on my right thigh, (I’m right handed) I simply grip the arrow shaft and slowly pull the blade across the hone as I would sharpen a knife. I keep just enough angle on the broadhead to clear the ferrule. I sharpen one side pretty heavily, then use just a few light strokes to de-bur on the opposite side.

  • Q:

    I have noticed that every one of the 160 grain heads actually weighs 175 grs. This has been from several different orders at different times. What is the actual weight of the 5/16" ferrule, they list at 140-145 grs.
