The Muzzy 3 Blade features a triple blade triangular assembly and is a fixed blade broadhead. Blades are also cheap and easy to replace. It will cut through flesh and bone without costing you an arm and a leg.
These broadheads are thoughtfully designed and created for extreme versatility. You can use them to hunt anything from a small doe to a large mountain buck. Their blades are durable, sharp, and make for a clean ethical kill, often creating a pretty decent blood trail to follow.
These arrows have nothing to prove. They have a time-tested design that works well in many different environments and a loyal following. You won't have to break the bank to add these to your quiver.
While bow hunting in the unforgiving wilderness, you will often find that what suits you best is the simplest and most reliable broadhead. You may not need fancy mechanical tips with their extra blades, and formidable cutting diameters.
Sometimes you'll be happening across a prize buck and can't afford to leave to chance the possibility of mechanical blades failing to release, and you missing your chance to have the greatest wall mount in the neighborhood. Their durability is unsurpassed, and there is a reason that the same simple design has been around for years.
One thing I notice as well is that the blades are significantly sharper than any of the other broadheads that we reviewed. If you look closely at the specs, the edge is .020 inch. That's 20 thousandths of an inch, compared to the standard competitor's edge which is .035 inch.
Now you may say that .035 inch is already surgical grade, and what difference do an extra 15 thousandths make, but the difference is significant, and in my opinion, helps to make up for the lack of wider blades.
Blades are easily replaced as are the tips. The tips can be easily unscrewed from the ferrule to be replaced, which means that you can always have the penetrating power that you need to make a clean hit.
So To Review:
When purchasing for the sake of affordability you are going to have to sacrifice some of the fancier features that come with more expensive brands like Rage or Grim Reaper. The bells and whistles that you may have come to expect are not there.
These are simply fixed blade broadheads, and they aren't trying to impress anybody. Their durability and relative inexpensiveness are the main selling points.
Because these are a fixed blade design, they will catch the wind and drag more than the ultra low profile designs of standard mechanical tips.
This makes them a poor choice for mountainous environments where the wind can whip down at very high speeds, but in an average low wind hunting environment, this shouldn't make too much of a difference.
Another con is that they have a relatively small cutting diameter. The largest diameter offered in this model is 1-3/16ths of an inch which is about 25% smaller than some of its competitors. This can result in small entry and exit wounds, and in turn, make the process of tracking harder than it would with the gaping 2-inch holes offered by wide-tipped mechanical broadheads.
Most advocates of these Muzzy broadheads are excited about the price and reliability offered by the brand. They say that these fixed blades can penetrate just as well as any mechanical tip, and have the same “bone crushing power.”
Many say that they do not have the field point accuracy of the low profile mechanicals, but that with a little time spent tuning and practicing, a tight group is easily achieved.
Another thing you will hear proponents of these talk about is their extra sharp edge. They say that the extra .015 inch sharper edge contributes to the pass-through shots every hunter is aiming for.
People also seem to love the flexibility and easy to replace blades and tips. It makes a big difference to be able to have a sharp and effective projectile constantly.
Broadheads by Muzzy have been favored for longer than many hunters have been able to hunt. It doesn't matter what type of broadhead you are used to; it only matters what gets the job done when you need it to, whether mechanical or fixed blade.
Muzzy broadhead is revered for their tried and tested performance in any situation.
If you need to be at a range comfortable to you, this may come at a few distances depending on your capability. It can be distance of 40 yards or more. Properly mounted quality broadheads will fly to their mark with ease, depending on your direction and steady hand.
The worst-case scenario for many hunters, the lonely walk home without anything to show for it, is going to be much less likely with the proper equipment.
The cutting capability will be more minute compared to some of the more sizable mechanical tips that we may have covered in our buying guide, but it delivers on target. Compared to competitors, the choice we have selected is one that balanced a rare form of quality and reliability that is difficult to improve upon.
The Muzzy 3 Blade Tip is one broadhead that is not only a recommendation on your next hunting trip but a necessity. They may seem a bit expensive, but the benefit offered is priceless.
