Spintite Crimson Talon Broadheads Broadheads

Broadheads Manufacturer: Spintite
Spintite Model: Crimson Talon Broadheads
Review Category: Broadheads

Purchase: Broadheads I bought them after reading your original article on them a month back. I didn't have a lot of confidence in my old broadheads and after reading your article I knew these were the ones to buy if what was said, was true. Yesterday I became a believer.

Things I like about the Spintite Crimson Talon Broadheads Broadheads: I decided to take a doe in archery season so I could concentrate on two big bucks which I believe to be brothers that everyone is spotting around my old hunting ground which is just off my parents property. Yesterday was the first day of the Pennsylvania archery season so I finally had my chance to give the Crimson Talon's a workout. At first light I saw a couple of does go just out of range. They seemed spooked if not from the wind and rain we had, then from another hunter. Things got a little better about 10:00 in the morning when I spotted a lone deer coming toward me. At first I thought for sure it might be a buck, but it turned out to be a single mature Doe by herself. I don't know why she was by herself, but it was clear she was. Perhaps just separated from the rest of the heard. I had some second thoughts, but decided to go through with the original plan. When she was within 20 yards it looked like she sensed something was up, so when she gave me a broadside shot I took it. Everything slowed down in slow motion. The arrow did just as advertised and spun very tightly, at first I thought I may have released a little low, but the unmistakeable thump assured me I had a solid hit. I don't trust a broadhead regardless of what they say until I see it in action. I got to see it upclose and personal here. I actually thought the doe was going to drop in her tracks, but didn't. She quickly got up and ran about forty yards right past me. It was obvious she had no idea where the shot had come from. She laid down within view and very shortly there after went motionless. This was probably the quickest kill I've seen archery hunting. It was humane and quick. Yes I had a nice shot that hit the vitals, but I've had them in the past and the deer just ran away.

What I don't like about the Spintite Crimson Talon Broadheads: If these things are as good as I currently believe word needs to get out there fast. I used to work in a butcher shop that cut deer during the rifle season and the one thing I hated was the number of deer that had old wounds many of which from archery.

Broadheads Crimson Talon Broadheads quality: The 100 grain Crimson Talon is well designed and very solid. Very little if anything movement in it. They describe them as shooting tight and I have to say that is true. What the manufacturer called the gut hooks on the blade seemed to work well yesterday.

Crimson Talon Broadheads summary: If I can place a good shot, it's a good feeling knowing these broadheads will do the rest of the work. I was able to witness first hand it's ahndy work when we butchered the doe late last night. So far I'm very impressed. Now on to one of big bucks.
