10 of the Best New Fixed-Blade Broadheads for 2019
January 10, 2019
G5 Striker V2
G5’s Striker V2 is a fixed, replaceable-blade broadhead with a cut-on-contact 100-percent stainless steel design. Like its predecessor, the Striker V2 has extremely sharp Lutz blades and the blade retention system on the Striker V2 features a stronger hold, increasing the broadhead’s reliability, while still keeping blade replacement extremely simple. The ferrule of the Striker V2 is fully ma-chined stainless steel and a cutting diameter of 1.25 inches.
Quality Archery Design Exodus
Known for their Ultra Rest series, QAD has also made some waves in the broadhead arena with the Exodus, and this season they added a 125-grain crossbow model to the lineup. Much like its predecessor, this model also features QAD’s revolutionary BOS technology which aligns the stainless steel blades over the bolt to create a super short head that provides true spin while in flight. Because of its compact design, arrow tuning is a snap, and when you add its cut on contact tip and .040-inch-thick, razor-sharp blades, you know it can get the job done with ease.
Hybrid broadheads seem to be gaining in popularity every year, and the new SWAT Hybrid is just one example. With the ability to be shot both as a fixed blade and a mechanical, the Hybrid’s ferrule is constructed of hardened stainless steel. The extremely sharp .036-inch-thick 420 stainless steel SS blades are designed to cut a 1 1/8-inch diameter in two directions for a devastating 4 blade effect that is 2 ¼ inches — a wound channel like that will be easy to follow!
