The SEVR Titanium 2.0 isn’t brand new, but it is just as impressive as others on this list. It’s made to work for both compound bows and crossbows. Its swept-back blade angle and re-engineered deployment geometry make for more accurate shooting. Given the durable design, and titanium ferrule, this is one of the toughest broadheads in the field. With the large cutting surface, this option creates very large entry and exit wounds. Overall, it gets up to 15% more penetration than the original Ti 2.1. Its Lock-and-Pivot blades are crafted from 420 grade, 0.032-inch-thick stainless steel, and move as needed after entry, which helps navigate past heavy bone. Also, you can shoot this broadhead in practice mode, so you know they’re flying accurately. This broadhead is available in 100 or 125 grains and is sold individually.
