This nasty little broadhead, the Thunderhead Edge by NAP, retails at $34.99 and is the latest design in the legacy of the Thunderhead broadheads. It has the same trusted trocar tip as the original Thunderheads but now comes fully assembled. The Thunderhead Edge broadhead comes with serrated offset blades that are designed for a devastating wound channel. The serrated blades are supposed to rip through a deer’s hide and punch through bone better than their straight edged predecessors. The blades are removable and replaceable by removing and reinstalling 2 set screws.
The Thunderhead Edge has a 1 1/8 inch cutting diameter that should not be underestimated. The blood trails that I have seen from the Thunderhead Edge rival those of many larger mechanicals. One thing that has been noticed by myself and some others is how these blades seem to stay very sharp even after practicing with them.
Field results with the Thunderhead Edge Broadhead
I have had several hogs and deer shot with this head expire within eyesight with a very nice red carpet to follow. There is one downfall to these heads however; if the arrow ends up coming out farther back that one would like, the serrations seem to pull intestines out with them causing the hole to become plugged, resulting in a minimal blood trail.
Pros and cons of the Thunderhead Edge Broadhead
- These heads shoot very much like field points.
- They cause massive damage and great blood trails on good shots.
- They are very tough and penetrate bone well.
- Poor shots may result in weak blood trails.
- They possess a small cutting diameter.
Final Thoughts on the NAP Thunderhead Broadhead
This broadhead has stood the test of time. It was one of the first broadheads that I harvested a deer with and I still have a couple waiting for action in my quiver. If you like a great designed head that has helped hunters harvest many deer, give this head a shot.
You’ll be glad you did.
