Tom O Hawk or Hammerhead from Trophy Ridge?

Unread postby Mountain Man » Thu Apr 05, 2012 3:53 am

Has anyone used the Tom O Hawk from Trophy Ridge? It's an expandable with a 2 3/4" cutting diameter.

I know the Hammerhead is a good head with a 2" cut. Muddy swears by them for deer and turkey.

In your opinion which one is a better choice for turkeys?

I just looked at both.....

I personally would go with the 2.75 expandable........more cutting edge the better

I have killed the majority of my bow turkeys with a Hammerhead. The bigger cut sounds good but I honestly think you'd have issues with the feathers stopping the broadhead. My buddy used the 3 inch Sledgehammers and had those issues.

I shot a bird with a Rocket mechanical once and while it did an okay job on the bird, the head was completely trashed after the shot.....the blades on them are about as strong as tinfoil.

I agree 100%, though I've never lost a deer or turkey to a hammerhead I've always had to replace 1 or 2 blades on the hammerheads. This happened when Rocket sold out to Trophy Ridge, blade quality sucked.

Go with Grim Reapers or Wasp JakHammers, fantastic blade quality and big holes.
