Thank you, Dan

Look like the old Simmons so I suspect they will work like the Simmons.

I lately used one Big Game head and it made an impressive work on a 200#wild boar. I have the single bevel ones and you need to know how to get them sharp, not easy for a greenie, but very well made broadheads.

They are great heads but are very hard to get razor sharp because of the concave design.Jimmy sells a sharpening system that you attach to a bench grinder that coincidently sharpens everything to a hair popping edge.Worth the money.Sells em on his website.

Tried to use them but couldn't get them sharp. I even bought the attachments for the bench grinder. I need a bracket to get things sharp.

Wow I like it, but I am not very good at sharpening so getting them sharp may be a problem.

I had trouble sharpening them, till I bought the sharpening wheels from centaur, the wheels work so good that you can even resharpen a razerblade,,as for the heads It is beveled and the one deer I shot last season i blew a hole through it just like the ones pictured in the critters above, I'm workin on trytin ta stick a turkey with the head right now if I make a kill I will post some pics and another good review on the head,, ALPHAMALE

I'm a little confused about the Kudu cow pic. If that is the entrance hole (bottom of chest), was the Kudu up on a rock ledge? Or in a tree? Or did it lay down and roll on it's back for you?

Bushytail:

The Kudu was slightly up hill, but I was in a pit blind also.

Aromakr,that makes sense. I'm glad you didn't get mad about the Kudu laying on its back or in the tree joke. Nice shot on your Kudu.

Anyone have one they would part with? Like to have just one for my modest collection.

I have used them and they are fantastic. Stronger than anything I have seen. Watch the video on Centaur website, impressive. It mentions only a few sizes, but they will trim them to get closer to a certain grain, within reason. The only head I buy now!

they are like the simmons but build better and stronger. definatly some tricks to getting them razor sharp. A lot of people like to use a rada wheel or accusharp

From: Bowlim

If it is just the concavity then use crock sticks. There is a good jewel stick video on sharpening simmons heads, on Youtube.
