Petersen’s Broadhead Torture Test

Hunga Munga was recently featured in Petersen’s Bowhunting magazine, pitting our broadhead against some of the top mechanical broadheads in the industry.

Flight Comparison Test

In a test of flight comparison, the Hunga Munga was the only broadhead to hit almost dead center.

The Test

A field-point-tipped arrow was shot from the X-Ring machine at 25 yards to give us a control reference point for comparing the broadhead impact points on the target. We then shot each test head three times and calculated an average impact point for each model. Those impact points are plotted on the accompanying graph relative to the centerpoint of the overall broadhead group. – Petersen’s Bowhunting Magazine, September 2014

Hemorrhage Test Results

In the hemorrhage test, the Hunga Munga drained the bag in only 4.1 seconds, making it the fastest of all the broadheads.

The Test

“One of the more entertaining tests in our lineup is the hemorrhage test. A thick, sealed plastic bag containing two gallons of colored red water was suspended in front of our Rineheart target. Using a TenPoint Vapor crossbow, each head was fired low through the bag. We recorded elapsed time from the instant the broadhead was fired to the time the water drained down to the reference line. How fast can your broadhead let the air out of your next target?” – Petersen’s Bowhunting Magazine, September 2014
