Take Flight

I learned about the toughness of this simply made but deadly head on a Minnesota whitetail a few seasons ago. Though I muffed my shot and hit the shoulder blade on the 8-point buck, the Zwickey forgave my error--punching through bone and into the buck's vitals. Constructed of one piece of steel, Zwickeys are sharpen-yourself heads that offer excellent penetration and supreme cutting power, with nearly zero effect on arrow flight. And since they retail at about $20 for a six-pack, Zwickeys might be the ultimate penny-pincher's broadhead. From Zwickey Archery Inc. Phone: 651-777-1965.
