Testing some @lumenok_burtcoyote Lighted Nocks along with the @ironwilloutfitters S125’s.
The other two arrows have regular nocks and field points. All shot from 45 yards.
I’m pretty sure this setup will work on a #mountainbuck . Aren’t you?
I’ve been testing a lot of heads lately and none have withstood the impact test with my elk target, aptly named, Rebar. Who, coincidentally, has a piece of rebar Iron running slightly up into his chest cavity.
I could have removed it long ago but I decided that knowledge gained by watching what happens when a broadhead hits it, was worth the pain.
So far, no broadhead has withstood even a slight impact with it. Some have sheered off blades and some have utterly exploded. Until now.
I heard the impact and knew immediately what had happened. As I pulled the arrow out I was expecting the usual; another useless broadhead.
As you can see (bottom image), the @ironwilloutfitters S125 head suffered only minimal damage. I figured at least the ferrule was bent and the head was essentially reduced to garbage.
Wrong. This head still flies true out to 80 yards.
I doubt bone can compare to iron. Leading me to believe that my assumption was right. I have found the ultimate broadhead.
But don’t take my word for it.
I see this particular exercise performed incorrectly, often.
Usually it’s either done with the incorrect amount of weight or the incorrect form.
➡️ INCORRECT WEIGHT:
Too light and you will loose some of the control in the movement, contact with the mid back, and it won’t be a challenge (which is point of working out).
Too heavy and you will sacrifice form, your lower back is more likely to dip in, and you will recruit other muscles to help pull the weight up vs. using your back muscles only.
➡️ INCORRECT FORM:
Back should be straight, no dip in the lower portion.
When you are pulling up, your shoulder should lock in and your elbow should not extend up past what is comfortable with that shoulder in place. What I see a lot is people pulling up- and opening the side of their body up, rotating their shoulder, and extending the pull to the sky. It’s a controlled movement, keep it in the correct range of motion for maximum benefit.
#nationalarcheryday And look what shows up in my mailbox. I’ve been counting the days until these @ironwilloutfitters showed up. After searching high and low for a Broadhead that could do it all and I think my search is over. These things have sooo many qualities it’s hard to find a place to start. But, none of that really matters if they don’t fly true. So, how did they shoot? 🤔
I left a little hint in “my story”. #accuracyiseverything#ironwillbroadheads
