Default Cold Steel Broadheads

I just got a new Flemish Twist string for my old Ben Pearson recurve and am waiting for it to warm up so I can go shoot it. I have been considering buying some of these broadheads but don't know much about them. Anyone have any experience?

You can buy a 50 pack of 100gr or 125gr for $39.99 and the price works out to .80 cents each. Thats pretty cheap for a broadhead. They may only be a one use thing but that would be OK too.

Here is an even better deal. A 50 pack for .52 cents each.

I'm not seeing anything about them that would make me want to use them for hunting aside from the price.

I like smooth blade better than a serrated, and if they are fragile they may not penetrate enough to make a clean kill.

Don't sling this junk at an animal. They deserve better.

Thanks for the responses guys. I am not a bowman but I did kill one deer with a bow and am getting my old recurve up and running. I was looking at these as a cheap way to supplement my small selection of broadheads I have now. These would be for emergency type use. The videos on Youtube are for the most part positive and they look like they would work as a hunting broadhead for deer size game.

I would only bow hunt deer in an emergency type situation anyway. I like gun kills better than bow kills even though my one deer kill was one of the best bled out deers I have shot.

Here is the video from CS with their usual hype to go along with it. The plywood penetration test impressed me because they didn't break. They make best be thought of as single use broadheads but at .52 each thats not too bad.


Thanks for your responses. I respect your opinions.

Last winter I picked up several dozen broad heads from china. They look like the older three blade satellite heads. I have not killed anything with them, the price was cheap.

These aren't a bad deal either and they come in several colors too.

Same general thing as ball and hollow point pistol ammo. It works, but maybe don't work as well. However, it beats being out of ammo.....

You can collect a couple dozen Zwickey Eskimo 2 blade heads pretty easily if you look around. They are a good quality head and not real expensive. You can glue on wood shafts or install adapters to screw in to carbon or aluminum arrows too. They file sharpen quickly and have been around killin stuff for a long time. Same goes for the Ace Standard broadheads. Look in to them.
