I was introduced to this broadhead by one of the Ramcat pro staffers, Mike Lopez . Mike just raved about this broadhead and how absolutely awesome it is, so I decided to find out for myself.
Ramcat Broadheads Look, Feel, and Performance
After opening the package, I noticed that the Ramcat broadheads are incredibly sharp on both the front and the back of the blades. I started to shoot them in practice and noticed from the start that they were very accurate. The second thing that I noticed is that you have to make sure that they will fit in your quiver because of their large 1 3/8 inch cutting diameter.
Not all quivers can accommodate a broadhead that large. Another thing that I noticed is that when the blades hinge forward it does loosen the screw that holds them in place so you need to tighten them down after each shot. I do this walking back to my bow after pulling my arrows. I also noticed that after several shots, the tips of each blade began to curl just a little bit, however it did not seem to affect the accuracy.
Ramcat Broadheads Performance in the Field
The first animal that I harvested with the Ramcat broadhead was a doe and I actually shot her through the near side scapula and got a complete pass through. The deer only went about 15 yards before expiring. After several more animals, it has always been the same result, animal down within sight.
- Ramcat broadheads come very sharp.

- Their ultra sharp blades are very easy to replace.
- The blades will dull a little easier than others that broadheads I have shot.
