HOW IT WORKS
You are hunting in the totally unpredictable wild outdoors. Anything with your shot can go wrong. You hunt to provide an ethical humane harvest, yet even a perfect shot leads to an agonizing tracking job or worse, lost, wounded game. We were fortunate to be part of a 10 year archery deer program, studying at a major university and SCI world records with 8 USA patents. As a guide, what we needed was not another Broadhead. We needed an arrow/broadhead system that with marginal shots would drop big game quickly. Experience what thousands of successful big game hunters have!
The arrow/broadhead system performs like a rifle shot. The SLASH arrow has the same process as an expandable bullet. Not an expandable cut on contact Broadhead. A fatal shot requires five major stages, LKE.
- STAGE 1 - Transform Bow’s Kinetic Energy to Lethal Momentum
- STAGE 2 - Improved Flight Accuracy and Trajectory
- STAGE 3 - Fracture the Surface With Maximum Penetration
- STAGE 4 - Maximum Secondary Trauma, Internal Controlled Expansion
- STAGE 5 - Largest Exit Wound Volume
Most all conventional arrow/broadheads only do two or three stages.
LETHAL KINETIC ENERGY FIVE -LKE-5
The killing power of big game depends upon five critical stages. Conventional fixed or mechanical broadheads can not do all five. Fixed broadheads only break the surface, mechanicals open on contact, deflect the arrow, and lose penetration! See what Chuck Hawks, a leading authority says, "Destroying, disrupting the function of vital organs or the central nervous system, causing blood loss and shock to the animals system." The latter almost instantly fatal.
Experience an arrow/ broadhead system that similar to a bullet does all five- LKE-5.
STAGE 1 - Transform Bow’s Kinetic Energy to Lethal Momentum
With the weight distributed over the front 5 inch section, the SLASH® arrows take advantage of a balanced higher front of center, without all the drawbacks of low speed and flight problems associated with traditional combinations, resulting in higher momentum. Indeed, the balanced weight forward technology of the SLASH® arrows captures 26% to 37% more momentum from the top bows than most traditional arrows in a lighter class. The higher momentum keeps the arrow moving and penetrating deeper into the target. The combined increased momentum and internal deploying blades set at a low angle result in a deadly combination.
STAGE 2 - Improved Flight Accuracy and Trajectory
SLASH® arrow’s innovative design, a dual cored high density carbon arrow with a full body INsetBlade® outsert housing the concealed blades, centers the additional arrow weight further down the shaft and around the arrow’s central axis. The patented distributed weight ensures top flight accuracy for the SLASH® arrows. Accuracy starts with less vibration and the balanced weight allows top compound bows, as an example, to have 28-30% less vibration. Factory tuned, laser shot spine, each SLASH® arrow is tested to tight tolerances, providing flatter trajectory and accuracy vs arrows with weighted broadheads and inserts all on the tip of the arrow. Indeed, Slash® arrows provide 8 to 20% less dynamic flex than a traditional arrow shaft.
STAGE 3 - Fracture the Surface with Maximum Penetration
SLASH® arrow’s patented design also provides maximum penetration. The innovative design fractures the surface with a stable, fixed broadhead with 26% to 37% more momentum than most traditional arrows in a lighter class. The elongated INsetBlade® outsert drives the broadhead, deep and straight thru hide, bone, and muscle, while increasing the strength, impact, F.O.C., and spine at the forward end of the arrow. The elongated outsert and dual core shaft provide less “flex” at impact, increasing penetration. This straight fractured directional force maximizes the ability for the rest of the SLASH® arrow shaft to pass thru, and clears a path for the secondary blades to open.
STAGE 4 - Maximum Secondary Trauma, Internal Controlled Expansion
Secondary trauma, combined with expansive wound channel volume, is critical to down big game. One key to the remarkable killing power of a SLASH® arrow is that the blades, concealed in the revolutionary INsetBlade® technology, open and expand internally, after entry. The patented blade system has BOTH slotted and back supported cams, so they open at the same time. The delayed controlled expansion is achieved by being set back from the broadhead tip and utilizing a patented rear deployment system. This means there is no valuable LKE wasted on entry. All of the available kinetic energy is used to inflict internal damage and provide maximum penetration. The sheer hydrostatic shock that occurs when the SLASH® arrow’s kinetic energy is converted into a lethal, fluid pressure inside the animal is designed to mimic that of animals shot with firearms. No other arrow/broadhead combination can provide this kind of delayed controlled internal expansion for such devastating results.
STAGE 5 - Largest Exit Wound Volume
Blood loss and trauma take volume. SLASH® arrows maximize volume with an extreme 5 blade cross sectional cut. The arrow’s overall design allows the arrow to maintain its speed and momentum through impact with delayed deployment of the secondary blades in the soft tissue of the animal. This advantage of conserving speed allows lighter pound bows to be as successful using SLASH® arrows as much heavier pound bows shooting traditional arrow/broadhead combinations.
A traditional three blade broadhead may have 2.25” of linear cutting edge. The INsetBlade® technology adds two blades concealed in the arrow shaft during flight with an overall 3” of linear cutting edge, ready to deploy upon penetration. The net result is 5 total blades with 5.25” of total linear cutting edges and a much larger wound channel when compared with traditional fixed blade or mechanical broadheads.
The net effect of the SLASH arrow’s 5 total blades is a wound channel that almost appears to be augured out as opposed to merely cut. Combined with the leading broadhead, the elongated blades, with the mechanical advantage of low angle and distinctive Samurai-sword design, provide over 200% more cutting surface and a 275% larger wound channel than a typical broadhead/arrow setup. The 5 blades in the SLASH® arrow literally mince the meat. The wound channel damage is so profound, the most common feedback the Company hears from users is that “it looks like this deer was shot with a rifle”!
