Check out SEVR broadheads. You won't find them at the pro-shops or box stores because they can only be purchased from the manufacturer.

First season shooting them. Most accurate broadhead I’ve ever shot. One Antelope and two whitetail does so far and no complaints.

No. I bought my daughter a crossbow and had to investigate expandables. I'm a fixed blade guy. I bought eight of them but have shot nothing but a target.

I do like the set screw that allows you to practice with them and a 2' group at 100 yards is typical.

Ok - I’m in the same spot, really liking the way they shoot, but haven’t bled anything yet.

I’d like to see the blades a bit sharper out of the package, but I can fix that pretty easy.

Reports are good on them, wanting to find out for myself.

Did not like blood trails/results from the previous version of the Sevr...was called the Ulmer Edge the first time around. 1.5" two blade that was very accurate. Did arrow a grizzly, Roosevelt elk, Blacktail buck, Coues buck and a black bear with them but haven't used them since 2015. I've had much better results/blade trails with 3-blade expandable since that time.

They were introduced in 2018.

I bought a dozen for my sheep hunt in August. Love the ability to shoot the exact head you practice with without dulling them. Hit a ram at 38 yards and he made a short 20 yard run followed by a tumble with them. Steep down angle and arrowed fully penetrated to the fletching. I'll be shooting them in KS on whitetails hopefully soon.

They really do fly exactly like my 125 grain field tips.

The Ulmer Edge preceded the Sevr (same design) by 6 or more years. Production of the Ulmer Edge stopped until some patent issues were resolved. Then the Sevr was introduced in 2018 to a lot of fanfare with Easton producing and selling the Sevr. The original Ulmer Edge was Rusty Ulmer's brainchild, with I'm sure a ton of input from his brother Randy Ulmer, one of the top bowhunters and archers of the past four decades and on the Easton and Hoyt Prostaff.

Google the Ulmer Edge...especially the version with the steel ferrule....you will see how similar it was to the Sevr.

I use rage expandables and I killed every deer I hit with them and they leave a huge blood trail, can't speak for Sevr.

Just swapped out some blades on the sevr 1.5. I'll say its a bit of a pain to do that with them. May attempt to resharpen the blades I replaced to see if I can beat factory sharpness. Jury still out for me on them. They do fly well.

KS mature buck ran about 70 yards and tipped over. Didn't exit though and only hit ribs. Only about a 14 yard shot and a pretty heavy arrow setup. Seemed odd.
