3 Blade Fixed, 3 Blade Expandable, and 2 Blade Expandable Broadhead Test Video

Every spring Growing Deer TV hosts a field day on the Proving Grounds near Branson, Missouri in the Ozark Mountains. The 2016 spring field day was filled with some spectacular informational presentations, educational demonstrations, and new for this year, a broadhead test video. The debate of fixed versus mechanical or expandable broadheads have raged since the first mechanical came out. While many tests exists, many reviews, options, preferences have been given the choice is still unclear of which offers the best results, and in the end it all comes down to personal preference.

Tim Checkeroski, marketing coordinator and pro staff manager at G5 Outdoors put his pride and reputation on the line deciding to show attendees a broadhead test on video! Now remember this was in front of 120 + attendees, not to mention 4 different video cameras ran by the growing deer staff! In this instance, Tim gave a solid performance as broadhead accuracy was not even questioned!

The Test

The Test was simple, a 5 gallon bucket filled with sand, and 3 broadheads. Tim shot each broadhead testing 3 different types, a fixed blade, 3 bladed mechanical, and a 2 bladed mechanical. Watch the video below to see the results of which broadhead showed the most penetration!
