    image.jpg image.jpg Just came across a great deal on some new/old stock Ben Pearson, Switch Blade Broadheads.
    Purchased 250 of them from a guy who bought them when the Pearson factory closed in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. This should be a lifetime supply for my son's and me.

    I always thought those were the most practical of broadhead designs. They're very tough and efficient.

    The various new designs with razor inserts and what not, look cool but aren't very durable. Any broadhead with moving parts will be prone to failure... but not yours!

    you can add 2-3 brass washers when you screw it in on the shaft and make it 135 gr

    or these are for wood shafts ?

    They are for cedar shafts. I shoot a longbow and prefer cedar.

    I used some broad heads very similar to those on my cedar shafts when I used to hunt with my recurve. Loved them.

    Nice find! Know a guy that had a bucket full of old Ace broadheads.....he still might.....but then he was connected to the company more than a few years back....way back before the current owners....

    Great find, you are one lucky bugger. Best I ever did was a half a dozen old Fred Bear broadheads a few years back, and they were HEAVY... I'm talking 185gr+- without the bleeder blades. I cleaned them up, blued them, then resharpened them. They weren't in my plano broadhead box for a good week before another feller at a 3D shoot spotted them and offered me WAY more than what I had invested in them. Anyway congrats again on a great find. That's a once in a lifetime score for certain!

    God Bless, and One Love.

    I probably have a dozen Zwicky and Bear all steel broadheads in my old bow bag. Now I gotta go dig them out. I forgot how cool they are.

    Nice find. They can be glued on wood shafts, aluminum arrows with the right insert or screw on adaptors. They can be used for any arrow on the market. 125 grain is a good weight and the screw on insert will add some weight.

    Yes, I've used Zwickey and Magnus glue on Broadheads for years. I don't have the bleeder blades for these. They probably weigh around 5gr. and that would make them 130gr.

    My old archery mentor, now passed on, made some broad heads he named "broadaxes" by taking Bear Razorhead, splitting it lengthways, and brazing the two pieces as bleeders onto a Pearson Deadhead. He shot a couple of deer with them, but they were a very close range proposition as they weighed well in excess of 200 grains.

    OP, LOVE those old Pearson heads you got there, don't suppose you'd want to part with a few of them?

    Nice score! Killed a lot of deer with those. Left a lot of them stuck in trees too. Non hunting buddies always wondered what those little blade in my wallet were for, carried 4 of 5 of the bleeders in the front picture sleeve.Moved to 125gr muzzy when I got my new bow.

    Yes, I think you could call it a chisel point.

    My sons have taken most of them. They hunt more than I do anymore. I better hold onto the ones I have left.
