The Phat Head broadhead is a short, sharp, compact broadhead made by Steel Force and it flies extremely well. In this Phat Head broadhead accuracy test & review I shot them out to 100 yards.
Many of you know that I shoot a PSE TAC 15i crossbow
and that it shoots tiny groups at 406 fps speeds. Up until this week I had only shot field tips with it. Getting close to hunting season I was in the final stages of selecting broad head candidates out of the myriad of choices out there.
The Phat Head appealed to me because the folks at PSE have had good luck with it and because it just looks like it would fly well and kill stuff easily at long ranges.
So yesterday morning I shot with them. I used the same arrow for each shot so I could eliminate any variables in my accuracy test and review. Bipod and bench. I get the same results prone as from a bench.
The following are the group sizes I got, each group was 2 shots. "Same hole" means the cutting edges of the blade from each shot overlapped each other since the 2 shots impacted so close to each other.
- 30 YARDS same hole
- 50 YARDS same hole
- 70 YARDS 1.5 inches
- 80 YARDS 2 inches
- 90 YARDS 2 inches
- 100 YARDS same hole
In addition, the 100 grain Phat Head broadheads
impacted only 2 inches lower at 100 yards than the 85 grain field tips.
I am done searching for a good broadhead. I'll be shooting the Phat Head at deer in Wyoming out to about 130 yards this fall.
