If you’re a bowhunter you’ve heard about the “fixed heads versus mechanicals” debate. Maybe even a bit too much. The truth is both styles of broadheads have their strengths and weaknesses. In this video HuntStand’s Will Cooper explains why he chose the Wasp Jak-Hammer mechanical broadhead for his 2022 bowhunts.
Field Point Accuracy
Will chose to go with a Wasp Jak-Hammer for his fall hunts because he wanted a broadhead that would group precisely with his field points. Will knows in-the-field accuracy is critical, and the tried-and-true Jak-Hammer has been responsible for many successful hunts. It’s a proven design for a reason, and Will has seen the head perform admirably in the past.
Consider Your Time
With a full slate of hunts on the docket for 2022, Cooper is already dealing with a slew of long gear lists, and packing responsibilities. The last thing he needed to worry about was taking lots of extra time to tune his broadheads of choice. Some fixed heads require tuning the head to the arrow vanes, some require tweaking the rest. Tuning can be fairly involved. Will knew he didn’t have that kind of time, but there was a solution.
At the end of the day, Will knew his situation, and wanted a head that he didn’t have to worry about. That’s why he chose to use the proven Wasp Jak-Hammer mechanical broadhead.
