Another thread made me think to ask this. Before hunting this year I looked into get these broadheads but decided to go with xblade retracts (same thing I use for deer).

Does anybody hunt with Guillotine broadheads and has anybody shot them out of a crossbow?

There's a link to a video if you don't know what I'm talking about. Skip to 1:35 to see the shot.

I've thought about using them as well until I read some reviews online that stated they are a pain to assemble and to transport. That made sense to me because if 1 blade is bent very much the flight may be iffy.

I've heard alot better reviews on the magnus brand. they are supposed to be more user friendly than the gobbler gillotines.

I shoot gobbler guillotines for goose hunting. never killed a turkey with one but if you hit a goose right his head will pop right off! im confident they would easily decapitate a turkey!. as far assembly....if you cant build a house outta Legos dont bother buying these. they are a pain but still only take a minute to put together. they fly great with flu flu arrows

Can these be shot at a target? I'd want to shoot them a few times to make sure they are going to fly right but at almost $40 a pack I'm not going to shoot them at a target just to have them break.
