Petersen's Bowhunting Leads Way in Broadhead Testing With Velocitip System
Broadhead Ballistics Test System Used in Head-to-Head Tests
We teamed up with Petersen's Bowhunting for another industry first. The addition of our broadhead adapter for the Velocitip System allowed broadhead drag and energy decay to be easily measured in a series of long range shots taken with dozens of fixed blade and mechanical broadheads. For the first time, downrange ballistic information will be available to aid bowhunters interested in getting the maximum performance from their broadhead. The testing was extensive and not all broadheads survived. Be ready for a few surprises when the results publish this Fall.
Congratulations to Jon Silks, Christian Berg and Petersen's Bowhunting for helping take the mystery out of broadhead performance.
