Was thinking of trying some. What are some of the pros or cons that anyone has experienced with them. Just looking for input before purchasing.

Pro-Devasting. Con-Sharpening them can be timely if you're a perfectionist.

I personally like the 175grain tigersharks the best.

The ONLY real con I've ever heard consistently mentioned is that they can be difficult for some folks to sharpen.

I like and use Simmons and have found them to be really good, BUT I have one complaint, their weight is not consistent, they are always off and generally by a bunch, 20 grains or more,, sharpening them took me a while to figure out but I have them very harp now, I had to go to the Work Sharp with grinder attachment and then run them thru a pull thru sharpener

I'm a die in the wool Zwicky eskimo man...but...the Simmons are intriguing broadheads. Everything posted is correct but they are devasting on turkeys and might have to try on a big game hunt one day. I have the glue on Tree sharks and the 135 grain Landsharks. (with the stated 20 grain variation mentioned earlier)

I think my bow would perform well with the Landsharks and this year I might try them.

I find they all sharpen well with the Simmons sold "Steelmaster' but they don't sell them anymore the last time I looked.

Simmons are excellent for meTiger sharks and Land Sharks. I use a rada and hone with a jewel stick. Devastating on whitetails. If I had to , I could sharpen with a chainsaw file.

All pros...Average blood trail 60 yards to a dead critter when put in the 8 ring.

My son uses a Rada I use a half round file and then a steel . You wont find a head that flies as good as a Simmons its like shooting field points .
