Having shot with much success over the last couple of years with the Muzzy 125 Grain Phantom, I was anxious in trying the new
125 grain version of their MX-3 series.
The phantom doesn’t have a bone chiseler type tip on it, but ra ther carries the leading edge of the blade out to the forefront initializing the entry wound. It’s a very effective blade that does devastating damage! It also happens to be one tough broadhead too! Unfortunately for me, I know first hand as one of my arrows hit a steel ladder from a tree stand one season, while shooting from the ground, only to penetrate the nearly 3/4″ aluminum stock.
The new MX-3 125 grain does carry the bone crushing tip known as the Trocar Tip, by Muzzy trade mark standards. This is the tip that most people are familiar with on other Muzzy broadheads. It’s a tiny little broadhead with less arodynamic surface area than its predecessors which happens to fly with maximum speed and closer to a field point. It’s a very compact broadhead that will destroy bone and tissue with little effort!
Although I’m still testing this little hatchet, I haven’ t found anything less than desirable about it. Lets face it, there are many good broadheads on the market today, and anyone who says that there’s only one good one, is not being truthful. Technology is being shared, metal alloys are better than ever and aerodynamics are constantly improving but having a marriage of speed, accuracy and strength will always dominate my decision. This MX-3 125 grain seems to have it all!
