anybodyy use them and how did they work? thinking about trying them
Did you shoot ply wood or Osb board, also known as waffer board. If you shot the real plywood thats the same as i did. I dont see the results being that different. I personally dont care what anyone shoot, but can say unless they have changed since last year the nap bloodrunners are junk. My opionionWell after all the post from Rhino I grabbed a 3/4 ply wood out of the garage and my bow along with 2 arrows. One with a 3 blade muzzy and the other a 2 blade bloodrunner. I shot the bloodrunner though the board at 20 yd's. It went clean though and into a bag target. (which was not smart) I then shot a muzzy 3 blade and it went clean though and into the straw. (I move the board) Each shot was with the board straight up and down not leaning in any way.
The Bloodrunner did not fall apart but the ends of the blades were broken and it was damaged to the point that you should throw it away. The Muzzy 3 blade could most likely be used again. No damage at all. They both had plenty of energy each were almost though the board to the fleching's.
IMO fixed will always out perform mechanical in a strenth test.
When I get some O-ring's for the rage I will test them along with some thunderheads.
Nap has a deep 6 bloodrunner. It has a thinner farrow and they seem to be a little more tougher than the one I shot which was the original..
As for the plunger style Broadhead. With reports about many of the mechanicals not opening, These will cut as much as most fixed heads IMO off sets The Min. loss of K-energy. I see it working as well as any other Broadhead. Other than the weaker design..... Thenew deep 6 bloodrunners will get the test. If they past I will use them.
I did find the broken blades to be a little weak as was the broadhead. So if I was to pic one, it would not be that one.
The one that I shot was one that they sent me for free after I called them about the old shcool Razzorback's. The NAP Co. is a very friendly and really seams to care about your input and the thoughts of their customers. I like the NAP Co. but I do call it how I see it.... I think I am going to call them and see if I can get one of the deep 6 Bloodrunners and test it..
IMO I am still in search of a good broadhead with a Mechanical cutting width but not quite a mechanical.
