How many of you that use either of these heads, hunt with them straight out of the package? I hear about how sharp they are, but I have never felt they were that sharp "out of the box"
I just got some 150 gr buzzcuts and have 125 gr as well. The serrations feel ok but the rest of the blade, not so much. If you touch them up, what is your prefered metthod?
They fly great, so I am wanting to use them this fall. Just curious what your experiences are with them on game.

I have used Stingers for the last 4 seasons....and have had excellent results using them straight out of the pack. I feel that they are plenty sharp enough.

Honestly thats the reason I use the Stingers....because I am sharpening challenged. Its easy for me to just switch the blades and have a new head ready to go.

I shot a doe last weekend with a head I had left over from last season....and it was still plenty sharp. She left a blood trail that a blind man could follow.

May as well post this again, since photobuckets mishap.

This is the second one I used on deer. First one just had the bleeder sheer off. No exit, this happened after a bit of penetration judging by the entrance wound. Didn't go far. Wont find any more in my broadhead collection.

I use them and they are flawless not saying there may be a miss hap here and there the 2 blades imho are always stronger but as far as sharpness if I can shave hair off my arm with them right out of the pack .. and I always have what more could you ask for plus with a lifetime warranty that's just the cherry on top of the cake

I should add I'm also shooting the 4 blades right now ... I'd not hesitate to shoot a buck of a lifetime with one right out the pack

First time I used a Stinger with bleeders there was a lot of blood. They are sharp enough for deer out of the package IMHO. 'Fred Bear' sharp if you will. They don't have a large cutting diameter so shot placement is a factor. Can't speak for the Buzzcuts. I also keep some Muzzy Phantoms around, they are a bit larger blade and one of my current go-tos for lighter duty.

I like them. They are sharp enough to hunt with. A sharping guru could make them sharper, but that can be said with most heads.

The first time I used one I shot a doe straight down through the shoulder blades and the arrow was stuck in the ground after the pass through. The deer only went about 40 yards and left a good blood trail. That was straight out of the pack so I wouldn't hesitate to use them again

I've had both sharp and not so sharp results from new heads, been a few years since I shot them though, usually a strop got them where they need to be. After shooting them, I used the accusharp and then stropped them. KME works too!

Various bows, but if you see me shooting, it's probably a Toelke in my hand!

This has been my experience, but I only use a KME to touch up or shrpen them.
