Wondering...

To some, a re-usable broadhead is one that you pick up, maybe sharpen, and use again. To others its one where the tips or blades can be replaced...

Regardless, I get the feeling that except for a few hunters, most will want to buy a "re-usable" head but end up going with a new broadhead every time they go out... your thoughts?

I reuse bh all the time. Make sure the ferrule is straight and sharpen the blades again. I practise with bh and the use those same ones to hunt with after replacing or sharpening blades. This is on fixed blades since mechanicals dont stand up well to being shot into a butt.

I also re-use my G5 Strikers. If the shaft is still fine I insert new blades and its good to go. I also re-use my older/blunt blades to hunt/shoot the odd baboon, Guinea fowl etc. They still perform great but I only use razor sharp blades when hunting any buck etc.

Thats more or less what most people say... re-use with new blades or new tips... here and there there is no replacement, just a sharpen and go
