Kelly’s Product Review – Swhacker 100 Gr. Low-Poundage Broadhead

Wow is all I can say about the Swhacker 100 Gr. Low Poundage Broad!  After receiving this little gem in the mail, I was more than anxious to remove the practice broadhead from the package and race out in the back yard and start slinging arrows into our deer target.  Boy was I impressed!   There are so many good things to say about the Swhacker that I don’t know where to start.

Pink!  Yes…these broadheads come in PINK!!   Did I mention that they match my bow perfectly…however I might add that they do come in black as well.   The packaging is a little hard to get into but nothing that a pair of scissors won’t cure and once you get everything out, you’ll see that for your money you get quite a bit.  Every package contains three (3) expandable mechanical broadheads, a practice point, six (6) extra shrink bands and a bonus DVD.  The DVD is cool and shows you everything from the kinetic energy needed to penetrate through several layers on a deer to the making and mechanics of the broadhead…very informative.  Something else you’ll notice when you get your low poundage Swhackers are that a portion of the proceeds from the purchase of this product will be donated to the American Breast Cancer Foundation.   Hunt Deer and Fight Cancer!

Okay, let’s get down to the details now.   I am a small person who has a draw length of 25 and I shoot 42 lbs. so I thought that these broadheads might be just the checker for me.  I’ve always shot fixed blade, never expandable, because I was always told that you need more poundage to kill a deer with expandables.   What I found when using the practice point is that these Swhackers really penetrate.  I shot from 20, 30, and 40 yards and each time my arrows drilled the target.  I normally shoot 85 Gr. so I was a little concerned that my arrow might drop in flight with the added weight.  Not so…my arrow flight was off minimal, dropping only maybe an inch…and that’s a BIG maybe.   I shot several times and didn’t notice a huge difference in my arrow placement in the target.  That was HUGE for me, as no one wants to have to compensate their shooting once they’ve been dead on with other broadheads.

Because I’ve always shot Muzzy’s or Bee Stingers, I am a little set in my ways.  If it works, don’t change it.  That being said, I had always wanted to shoot an expandable broadhead but there hadn’t really been any that I’ve found for low poundage.  I am so impressed with the Swhacker Low-Poundage 100 Gr.  and what makes them stand out from the rest is their unique blade design provides you with two separate cutting edges.

The first set of edges, known as the wing blades, are used for cutting through the hide and the first set of ribs.  These blades are used to open the broadhead and are considerably smaller than the main blade.  These first set of edges take the most punishment because they cut through the hair, dirt, hide and bones upon entry.  The second set of edges, the main blades, do not touch anything during the initial penetration.  They have what is called “virgin” edges when opened in the body cavity allowing them to remain razor sharp for the vitals.

The blade thickness .032” Stainless Steel, 0.875 inch wide closed , 1 ½ inches wide open.  The length of the head from insert to tip is 1.850”, Ferrule Dia at insert .350”, Ferrule 2024-T4 Aluminum, Tip Hardened Steel hollow ground (threaded on), Screw 4-40 x .250 Grade 8 steel.

There are so many positives about these broadheads and I’ve got to be honest and say I’m excited for  fall bow season because you can bet these babies are going to be on my arrows.   I’m all about trying new products to see if I can improve my hunting game and I truly believe that the Swhacker Low-Poundage Broadheads are undeniably spot on for top of the line broadheads.
