Bob . . .I can without a doubt say the Wasp Boss 3 blade is the worst broadhead I have ever used. There were several things going against the broadhead, so, it may not be as bad as I have labelled it. First of all, they came with the Excalibur Right Stuff package along with my first crossbow, the Exomax. I had been out of archery for a few years and had NEVER shot a crossbow. I was actually scared to shoot the Exomax and had a friend of mine to take the first shot. Funny, right?
Anyway, on to the broadhead. I got pretty good at driving the target tips consistantly into each other in short time. So, I decided it was OK to prepare for the up coming season. The first shot I took with the Wasp Boss hit the target, but, it was a couple of inches off from the field tip. I was only shooting the one broadhead. My second shot almost missed the Block Target altogether. The third shot was way off too and nowhere close to the other two shots. I couldn't see anything wrong with the broadhead, but, it was all over the place. I replaced the blades and shot. I almost hit the hole of the first shot. Anyway, to make a very long story, long . . .after much shooting, I learned . . .the blades could bend slightly when shooting them into the Block Target and the bend could be slight enough not to be see untill the wind hit it. Then it was up to 8 inches off target.
This is why I believe the worst broadheads are the small fixed blade broadheads with thin blades. Not to limit this issue to just the Wasp Boss. I also had a couple of long tracking jobs with the Wasp Boss on solid hits. I accredit this issue to the small cut, 3 blades. I had similiar tracking experience with a small cut mechanical. After that I went big. Size does matter.
David, I had the same experience once with the Hammerheads. The only reason I didn't think it was an issue, the deer dropped in 20 yards. Trophy Ridge has claimed to have fixed that problem. Since then I have taken a few deer with the Stricknines and one with the Hammerhead and the "revised" heads worked perfectly.
I'd rather wear out than rust out.
Perception trumps intention.
