I just posted about schwacking pigs with them. Will probably never use anything else. 125 Gr Ser-razors. Watch Ranch Fairy videos on Youtube and learn how to sharpen and construct them properly and you're golden.

I have first hand knowledge of both Magnus black hornets and stingers.   I have killed 3 elk with the Black Hornet broadhead.   Of the 3 elk shot, the shots were from 15 to 30 yards 70# bow 100gr tip. The results were clean pass through lung and boiler room shots.   The black hornets are pretty devastating to vitals and even cut through a rib. Two of the elk I was able to watch fall and expire quickly, the other went about 60 yards in the brush and laid there and never moved.   Also I have used the stingers for years and with the same results on elk and deer.   While testing both broad heads at distance the stingers performed a bit better on longer ranges 50-70 yards while the black hornets sometimes plained a bit at distance greater than 50 yards.  Although I was still hitting my target my groups were not quite as nice as the stingers.   For me the stingers shoot almost the same as my field points.  I have been bow hunting since the late 80s, trocar tips were all the rage back then.   Almost every animal shot with a chisel tipped broadhead took off like a man on fire.  Since I switched to a cut on contact style like the stinger the animals seem to have a lesser reaction to the arrow strike.   Maybe also due to the thinner arrows of modern archery today and better penetration with faster speeds in archery equipment as well.  However Magnus has excellent customer service and lifetime guaranty their broad heads.  If the broadhead is damaged during use they will replace it.  That is the quality I look for in a product.

Lots of great reviews every where I look. Picked up a pack of standard 125's. Good looking broadhead but sure arent very sharp. I ordered a guide from Stay Sharp and they will tune up nicely

Its not that what I have been using didnt work. 2 bulls the last 2 years with current set up., one went 25 yrds and the other 80 yrds but both arrows broke ( Gold tips ) and just have never been impressed with the 3 blade Montec for sharpness and penetration

I changed up arrows also, picked up some 300 Victory RIP TKO. Flying great

Antelope opens in 4 weeks , better get after it   :tup:

It's good to put a better edge on your blades. They sharpen pretty easily once you pull the blades out.  I swear back when I first started buying them they had a finer edge but I can say I have a couple that have been resharpened and bled a couple different critters.  I am shooting black eagle rampage arrows.  They do well combined with the stinger or black hornets.  Good luck this season!

I got the sharpener on Friday and went to town on 6 of the heads. I got these wicked sharp and these are great looking broadheads. Really looking forward to letting the air out of a couple of critters this year

Shuttle Tís are also pretty dull new, Iíve hesitated sharpening them because I wonder if that is part of their design??

I always liked the flight and toughness of the shuttle tís and have killed many critters with em but yes they sure come dull out of the package.

Do you sharpen yours? If so, what brand of sharpener?

Update on how the Black Hornet performed on my Antelope Buck

   Shot him quartering away, entered right in front of the hind quarter. Guts , liver, lung and stuck in the far shoulder blade.

   He ran 40 yards and stopped, wobbled twice then flipped over backwards. Broadhead is in perfect shape and doesnt really need to be sharpened but Ill tune it up anyway

   Very impressed so far
