Just figured I would share...

Like many, I switched from the Gobbler Guillotine to the Magnus Bullhead after snapping off Guillotine blades multiple times. The Bullhead just seemed a far more sturdy design - and it is. (It also flies a ton better!)

Unfortunately, I missed a gobbler a couple weeks ago. (Well, technically the arrow was deflected off a stick I didn't see between the bird and I.) The arrow proceeded to fly off course and crash squarely into a tree. Upon impact, one of the Bullhead blades was bent and the threaded portion of the ferrule snapped off down inside the arrow insert. After a few minutes of searching, the Bullhead was located. Truthfully, I expected it to be in far worse shape given the impact.

When I got home I remembered reading that Magnus will replace any damaged heads. I jumped on the Magnus web site, but found nothing in print on the matter. (Such as any rules or stipulations for returns etc.) So, I figured I would just give it a try. (What did I have to lose but a little postage? The head was already toast.) I disassembled the head, placed it in an old pill bottle and wrote a letter chronicling what had happened. I told them that I would understand if the replacement policy did not apply to me as the damage was my fault and not really from normal use.

Well, today, only about a week after mailing off the broken Bullhead, I received a package from Magnus. It contained one new Magnus Bullhead - no questions asked. To me, that's just great service and pretty quick too.

I'll be taking a close look at the Magnus Snuffer SS for my whitetail broadhead this fall. :thumbsup:

I haven't shot either head but Magnus has a great reputation. Your story just piled on more to it. Thanks for sharing it. And if you take a tom with the notorious head separator Bullhead please share the pics. :D

Great report, Jeremiah.

I had already made up my mind that I was going to use Muzzy MX-3 broadheads this fall. After reading your report, I think I might pick up some Snuffer SS broadheads to try. They look pretty tough.
