Forgive me folks I have been out of the loop as far as equipment goes. Last deer I shot was in1997 lol.I got these awhile back. I tried to get some info on them but only a little. They are made very well.

Resemble Eskimos...

They are a very well thought of, but out of production, broadhead.

Those were a good broadhead. They are similar in design to the Ace Standard. Convex edge and sharpened well.

That figures. Find something you like and they dont make it anymore. Bummer

Miss those my favorite in the 90s.

Aren’t they now made as Eclipse heads?

Eclipse makes just about the exact same head

From: ottertails
Date: 16-Apr-18




Yep Eclipse, in 125 and 145 grain weights. Also Magnus made them for a few years back in the '90s,,,I still have a 6-pak of 160gr from them.

You guys are correct. Eclipse broadheads are the same.

From: Archre167

I believe they were made by our neighbors in Canada. I just sent some lightly used ones to a fellow leatherwaller. They worked great on the critters I took. No longer made

The last heads I shot was was Chippawa. I hope to get another bow soon so I dont know what arrow and broadhead it will like.

Sure look like eclipse to me.

those journeyman heads were good heads, think sold out to eclipse (same head but teflon coated)

Journeymans were canadian made and the same head Eclipse are made in Idaho (I think)

the ACE standard is about the same shape work just as good and alot less costly

I'll concur on the Ace. Looks very much like the journeyman and is very well made. But, you have the ones in the picture so just go with those until you need more.

From: monkeyball

They are the same as the Eclipse. Yours were just made a little farther north than these.

Does anyone name an insert that runs all the way out to the end of those? Would add a little weight and maybe some strength...

I’ve just got to settle on a weight and order some Aces...

I don't think any adapter will run all the way to the end but long style adapters will fill most of the void. They come in different weights depending on material, aluminums are 42 grains, steel are 125 and 100. There are titanium ones I believe as well but I'm not sure on their weight.

This is a grizzly 160 with an aluminum adapter, next to it is a 125, 100, and 75 grain steels. That 125 is 1" of taper.

Honestly, I wouldn't worry about the strength though GF, laminated heads like these are very sturdy, especially the triple layer ones like that. That ferrule extending toward the tip actually adds strength in itself, more material there than if it were flat and its shape resists bending.

Journeyman heads were produced here in Ontario By Theo Reichart and Brian Oats. I still have a few of them. Sandy

Magnus also made them for awhile after the original Canada version.

The journeyman broadhead was produced by Brian Oats in Ontario Canada. He also came out with the serrated version that I liked and killed some deer with called the Raptor. Raptor Archery said he couldn't use their name so he just stopped making them. It was a very good head

From: GF

Almost looks like the serrated portion is single-bevel... Hmmmmmmmm......

This is the last out of 6 I bought in 2005 I don't know how many deer it's killed. Great heads. I bought a 6 pack from custom king last year look the same except they have spot weld marks on em
