This is a question Ive been pondering on, What classifies a broadhead as tradional, classic, or collectable. I generally hunt with a recurve and Zwickey heads now, although Ive run through some more modern heads as well, I grew up shooting compounds with 3 and 4 blade Wasp Cam Loks, the blue and stainless Bear Razorheads, and Muzzy 3 and 4 blade heads. The Wasp heads are discontinued, as are the Bear heads, the Muzzys have changed styles somewhat, is there a specific parameter to classify the type of broadheads suitable for collecting or are the heads I grew up shooting now just something for the junk drawer.

All broadheads from the very common to the rarest are collectable. It depends on what the individual wants to collect.

The American Broadhead Collector's Club has over 4,000 broadhead entries in their Broadhead Master List, along with other publications to help the collector.

Several members have published books to help with the identification of glue-on, screw-in and mechanical broadheads, and fish points.

If you are considering broadhead collecting, your first big step would be to join the ABCC.

The Clovis I have is kind of collectable and so is the Pandale stone head. Both found by me.
