Bloodsport Deadline Crossbow Broadhead
It’s no secret that today’s crossbows are fast, efficient, and accurate. This may be an understatement. Advances in modern crossbows occur in rapid-fire succession – no more so than in the area of speed. Yes, we continue to be in the midst of an archery speed war, and each year brings new improvements in performance regarding arrow velocity and kinetic energy. Thus, it should come as no surprise that crossbows arrow speeds have surpassed 400 FPS and keep climbing. Speed isn’t the only significant variable involved, though. Advances in crossbow efficiency and effectiveness are all about their design, as well as that of arrows and broadheads. And it’s a delicate balance.
Why does this matter? Because a crossbow generally delivers significantly more torque than a standard bow, demanding a very reliable broadhead. Like with compound bows, fixed broadheads are often deemed as more reliable than their mechanical counterparts. Nevertheless, the latter which deploys on target contact offers more aerodynamic flight and larger cutting diameter.
The Best of Both Worlds
Enter the Deadline Mechanical Broadhead. Developers at Bloodsport Archery have created a broadhead squarely aimed at solving these dilemmas – one that can withstand the high velocity of today’s highest functioning crossbows while sporting blades that dependably deploy. The additional benefit is that they open during penetration rather than on contact.
Specifically designed for handling speeds up to 500 feet-per-second, the all-new Deadline features a 100 grain, chisel-tip ferrule made from 7075 aluminum. The two-bladed mechanical broadhead carries a whopping 2-inch cutting diameter, absent of o-rings or rubber bands. The Deadline broadhead’s delayed-opening action cuts through tissue and vital organs – with minimal drag on the arrow. This means unmatched minimized energy loss for quick, deadly, and ethical kills through true field-point accuracy.
