    Comments about MA-3 3-Blade Broadhead:

    I purchased my first supply of MA-3 broadheads from 3 Rivers in l988. I'm still using some of them. They are possibly the most rugged broadhead on the market. Smack a rock? File the tip back. re-sharpen and continue the hunt. I have killed numerous big game and 25 years of varmints with them. A sharp MA-3's will do anything any other broadhead will do and probably survive longer.

      Comments about MA-3 3-Blade Broadhead:

      The Archers Bible (Kittridge Bow Hut) many years ago had an add that showed a bow hunter who killed a bison with an MA-3. That was 40 years ago. Still the best broad head on the market.

        Comments about MA-3 3-Blade Broadhead:

        This broadhead and the two blade were the ones I first started hunting with back in the late 50's and today they still prove to be one of the toughest and easy to care for broadhead on the market. From traditional bows and from compounds, I have used them over and over to kill all of the big and small game in Colorado.

        There are some tricks to keeping them sharp enough to shave with like using ceremic rods and a leather strop just as the old timers did with straight razors. A light oil or wax will keep them from rusting quickly. During hunting season my legs and arms go hairless by always testing them for sharpness.

        I have killed many elk with them and most of them died within a few seconds. My first elk was shot in the rear from a 52 pound Ben Pearson recurve and the home made wood arrow went clean through and came out it's chest and stuck in a dead tree. It never knew what hit him as it died less then 20 yards.

        A MA3 that has it's front end damaged can be sharpened to another point for using on small game and stump shooting.

        I have also welded nails to the blades for bird hunting which is another trick that works great. Try that with another broadhead!

        For my money, the MA3 is the best broadhead to use with wood arrows as I have made hundreds of arrows with MA3's for use from everything from fishing to flu flu's.

        With all of the many 'gadget' broadheads on the market today, I will wager that any animal shot will not know the difference between the good old MA3 broadheads or their expensive gadget broadhead.

          Comments about MA-3 3-Blade Broadhead:

          I used these broadheads on a pig hunt. I was using a custom 56 pound longbow and very heavy hickory shafts. My first shot struck low and completely penetrated the left leg just below the body. I got my second shot as the pig turned away from me at 35 yards. That arrow hit just behind the last rib and penetrated to the feathers. The pig made it 8 yards before piling up. Both shots told me a lot about the broadhead. The first one completely penetrated solid bone and the broadhead looks brand new, even at the point. It did not bend over at the tip at all. The second arrow didn't hit bone but the three blades caused massive damage to both lungs resulting in a quick kill. I have found a new favorite broadhead.

                The first time i shot this head it blew through the target and hit a really rotten decaying log. It was not a heavy piece of wood. I carved it out of the stump with my knife and to my dismay, the head had cracked almost in two. I called Three Rivers and they said they would exchange it for me. I love Three Rivers but this was a faulty product

                  The MA3 lines-up perfect on adapters, or 5 degree tapers. They are tough, have a hard finish, some say almost too hard that will require a little more effort to get sharp. It holds an edge like no other, I have shot through large wild boar, and the head was still razor sharp. The flight characteristics are fantastic. It is hard to believe that people pay more for heads that are not much better.

                  Comments about MA-3 3-Blade Broadhead:

                  I started using these 20 years ago for groundhogs and deer and have never been disappointed. These are true traditional heads that require a bit of work on your part. Attach with hot melt stick and align with the fletching. Spin the arrow on a roller and adjust the head until there is no wobble. The three blade model is easy to get a razor edge using a whetwheel and diamond steel. You do need to spray them with Pam cooking spray so the edge doesn't rust.

                  These are the only heads that have held up consistently for years of broadhead pratice and hunting. Bent some on rocks, bones, and rebar rods holding foam targets, but have never lost a blade. Can't say that for any "modern" head I've ever tried.
