I used to use Stingers and have since moved away from them. In my experience they flew straight out of most bows. They made more noise than solid heads. They killed everything that I hit with one. That said, I had concerns with the durability.

While I never had completely catastrophic failures like shown above, I did have the ferrules on a few get boogered up and make the replacement blades harder to get in. I also had one get bent on me once. I just kind of lost confidence in them due to the aluminum ferrule and have thus gone to all steel broadheads.

I use the 2 blade stingers and really like them. Have not had durability issue yet. Buck I shot 2 years ago is in the pic below hanging head down. Quartering away shot, broadhead entered at back of ribs exited low through ribs and then hit the humerus square on. As you can see, it sliced and/or busted through the humerus of the front leg. No damage to the broadhead. Deer made it about 75 yards.

They carry a lifetime warranty, and don't bat an eye at honoring it. There is something about shooting a big thick steel broadhead though.
