They seem decently built and the price at wholesale is great might pick up a set and try them out.

I used Rocket Steelheads on deer 15 + years ago. They smashed thru shoulders like a champ.

Grim Reapers are mo betta.

Still carry them, still use them. Picked up last 3 packs of 125 gr Steelheads that Wholesale had in the spring. Hopefully will last the rest of my life. I have no preference between Steelheads and Grim Reaper; both equal IMO.

Was responding on a mobile device....

I've used Rocket Steelheads for 2 decades now. Taken a 5x5 Elk, a real nice Mule buck and a couple of Mule Does with Steelheads. During the same time, have also used Grim Reapers to take game as well. The Rockets and GR have never let me down. Complete pass throughs when I've done my job. A couple of shots, the BH (either brand) got lodged in the offside shoulder blade or shoulder socket, but still brought the game down. And I always follow the "one and done" rule; when the BH goes through the game once, the BH is retired. I think that this rule should be applied to ANY broadhead, regardless of style or brand.
