Patented blade-retention system keeps blades closed until impact
The Gravedigger is set up with a razor sharp 1″ fixed blade made of 420 stainless steel and 1 3/4″ cross opening curved mechanical blades. Unlike most mechanicals there are no O-rings or rubber bands that you have to attach to these to prevent premature deployment. These mechanical blades actually fold into each other in a cross fashion unlike other mechanicals on the market. The blades stay in place by tension put on them from a small screw located towards the bottom of the broadhead which is also the pivot point of the mechanical blades. This can be adjusted to your liking. The tighter you make the screw the harder it will be to make the blades deploy. Say you are shooting through ground blind mesh. You would want to tighten this screw up a bit to prevent the blades from deploying prematurely.
Traditionally, mechanicals deploy once the blunt tip of the blade hits the target. The forward motion being put up against this blunt tip is what made the blades catch the skin of the animal and open up. This presents a problem when taking quartering shots with the end result a lot of times being what the industry calls “jack knifing.” Jack Knifing is when the arrow hits the quartering target, followed up with the blunt part of the mechanical getting hung up on the skin, causing the arrow to go off of its intended flight path and lose a ton of kinetic energy, resulting in bad penetration. I have actually heard stories of arrows literally bouncing off the side of an animal. Nobody wants that. The difference between Gravediggers and other mechanicals is the mechanical portion is actually sharp to the tip, not blunt. This means better penetration, especially on those quartering shots. Jack knifing doesn’t exist with Gravediggers.
I don’t really have a lot to say about this, because there isn’t a whole lot to say. These broadheads fly like field points. Shoot them at 20 yards, shoot them at 80 yards. Doesn’t matter. No more having to sight your bow in for your broadhead of choice. End of story.
Being relatively new to archery hunting, I haven’t had a whole lot of opportunities at taking animals with my bow. I was fortunate enough to take a javelina with this broadhead earlier this year though, which you can read about in 2 of my earlier posts entitled, “Breaking the Ice Part 1” and “Breaking the Ice Part 2”. The broadhead performed great! It hit right what I was aiming at with a perfect pass through. It didn’t just pass through the animal. This thing went through the animal and kept on going! We found my arrow probably 40 yards are so behind the initial spot of impact. The blood trail was fantastic and easy to follow, which is what we all want right? Upon the arrival of my first archery kill, I was pretty impressed with the entry and exit wounds. They were about the size of a half dollar on each side of the animal. Can’t ask for anything more than that.
My Ending Thoughts
In my honest opinion, Dale Perry at No Limit Archery hit a homerun with his invention of the Gravedigger. This is for sure going to be my broadhead of choice for any animal that I hunt in the future. These come in cut on contact form and also in a chisel tip form with your choice of either 100 grain or 125 grain. If you are in the position that I was in when deciding what type of broadhead to go with or even if you are a seasoned bowhunter, give these a shot. You will not be disappointed. Field point accuracy, huge wound channels, generous blood trails, and dependability. What more can you ask for?
