www.simmonssharks.com

Been shooting them for years. I killed a couple of deer with the 125gr., but prefer the 160gr Landshark, Interceptor(190gr) or Treeshark(190gr). GREAT broadheads! I would encourage you to get one of the steelmaster sharpeners, they sell them on the Simmons website, best I've found to sharpen the curved blades quickly. They fly great also, I shoot them with 4 inch feathers and out to 50-60 yards.

Treeshark


Interceptor


Landshark

Yup, that pretty much says it all.

AMB, how many deer have you killed with a Simmons, and how many resulted in a non-pass through?


Is there anyone who has photographic proof of a more or equally devastating broadhead? Those are 3" or wider entrance holes. We can talk single bevel, 3:1, whatever, all day but I have never seen penetration and wounds to compare with those from a Simmons. Killer B can correct me if I'm wrong, but he's shooting them off a 45# bow. I've shot them myself and can attest to the good flight. I don't know why I don't have them on my hunting arrows now. That will be corrected before next season.

Coodster, I shot the Landsharks when I used them on my wheel bow. They flew like a dart. I will be using one of the big boys now.

A question... For you guys that have been using them for years.... If I do say so myself, I'm pretty good at getting a sharp edge on most knives, BH's, etc... but find it difficult to satisfy myself with those large Simmons and their curved contour. I'm not disputing anything, just asking what you do to get em scarry sharp. Thanks.

Thanks for the responses, the steelmaster sharpener will be in the order also. I would go to a tree shark but I would need a stiffer spine arrow and I really dont want to replace 5 doz arrows

AMB thanks a picture is worth 1000 words so in your case 3000 words


they will be shot out of a longbow or recurve 51#-53#

I have a round file (not chainsaw file, much larger) that I used if I knicked one, but for normal sharpening I used a round sharpening rod that I have, followed by a round ceramic rod. I have no idea what the name brand of the sharpening rod is but it has steel in it, as a magnet sticks to it. It is not a knife steel, like you see a chef using. It's dark grey. Anything round will work great. The only thing I did when I shot them and will do on the ones I get for next year is to nip the last 1/8" of tip off and put a chisel point on them instead of the factory point. I had a tip roll on one many moons ago, it broke off when I straightened it, but it still shot so good I did all of them that way.

Brad, I've killed a few with them and you usually will get an exit wound, even if the arrow doesn't completely go all the way through. The first two pics are from this year and were taken with a 45# Stallion. The last pic was a wheel bow kill from a couple of years ago, actually a pretty decent 8 point. Steel master is the quickest route for sharpening. They are worth a try if you are considering broadheads.
