Hey all!

Looking forward to putting the new Iron Will Wide single bevel series broadheads to use and testing!

From what I see from past users of other heads I shouldn’t be surprised by their performance it seems!! More to come!

Anybody else using the new wides yet or plan to?

I am going to use 125 gr deep six heads with collars to see how they perform on the end of Easton Axis 300’s.

I use the wide solid 150s on Axis 300s. Haven’t killed anything with them but they shoot as good my Exodus full blades.

That is good to hear! What about at extended ranges past 50?

Group sizes were about the same out to 60yds. The only thing I notice is they are louder but that is expected. The vented ones have a whistle sound so I went up to the 150s just to get the solid version. I just dropped my inserts down to 25grs so they still shoot with my 125 BHs.

Haven't shot anything with them yet.. If your bow isn't in tune, you'll find out in a Jiffy when shooting these. A higher profile vane will cover you if your bow is a little out.

I've shot the wides with Max stealth and IW vanes. I assume the Max Hunter vanes will operate teh same as the IW vanes as they are the same design profile.. I shot the wides with the max stealth after installing new strings and at 20 yards they were perfect. I started shooting them prior to last hunting season but only had the max stealths installed and I was not able to get them to fly at that time. I'm gonna cover myself by only shooting them with the IW's and Max Hunters when the season comes around

Running the Wide SBR 135 Snyder Core System, 25gr HIT Insert and 25gr Impact Collar on the Easton Axis Long Range 250 Spine Match Grade arrows. TAW is 485 going 286fps out of a 75# Mathews Lift 33 at 29in draw. Digging the accuracy of the vented blades! Have not noticed them being loud due to the larger vents. KILLER BROADHEADS!

I have tried a slew of the IW broadheads, including the vented Wide's and have nothing but good experiences across the board. I am an average shooter, but all of them group well out to 60 yards for me. I have a hard time getting any broadheads to group well beyond 60 yards, but I assume it's a combination of me as the shooter (largest factor) combined with some inherent planing one needs to expect. Luckily I don't plan to shoot anything beyond 60 yards, unless it's a follow up shot and honestly I like to have a mechanical in my quiver for this purpose (I've yet to need it).

What i will say is that I read the IW study on fletching and played round with some variations this week. They were not true Apples to Apples, but interesting none the less. I found that (3 Fletch) AAE Hybrid 23/26 and Air Razor Pro's all grouped together with IW Wide's and Solid (Single Bevel). I was immediately about 7.5" Right (before any tuning). I also had a 3 Fletch IW Hybrid Hunter vanes on the same arrow setup (Axis 4mm) and they grouped 1" Left out of the gate. I played around with my rest to get both to fly well and ended up settling on the IW Hybrid Hunters as my groups were ~2.5" at 60 yards with Broadheads. Again, far from scientific ... but it sure seems to support what IW has published.
