The new broadheads for 2023 cut big wound channels, are quieter and more accurate in flight, and create deeper penetration on impact. Check out what’s available for this year below.
1. NAP Ignite 3
The Ignite 3 by NAP is a reliable three-blade broadhead. Each one is constructed of one-piece, tough CNC-machined titanium ferrules to ensure true flight. Stainless-steel fixed blades are held securely in place by the X-lock™ blade system. Overall, this 100-grain broadhead cuts a brutal 1-3/16-inch wound channel. Furthermore, blades are easy to replace, and one set of replacement blades are included. It’s spin-tested for optimal flight performance.
2. NAP Backflip 2 Broadheads
The one-piece ferrules of NAP’s Backflip 2 two-blade broadheads are CNC machined from grade-5 titanium to deliver hard-hitting durability, accuracy, and consistency afield. This razor-sharp mechanical and its easy-to-replace stainless steel blades expand from an aerodynamic 11/16-inch in-flight diameter to 1¾-inches upon impact, cutting wide, slicing deep, and leaving massive blood trails in their wake. Each broadhead weighs 100 grains and is individually spin-tested for optimal performance, ensuring their flight path closely mirrors that of your field points. Comes with one set of replacement blades.
3. SEVR Robusto 2.0
This 150-grain broadhead uses a specially hardened stainless steel, which is stronger than standard Titanium. The Robusto has improved accuracy and increased momentum for today’s high-speed crossbows. Its 2-inch cut diameter thanks to its Max-Cut 2.0 blade technology offers improved penetration and the largest possible entry and exit wounds. The broadhead also features a machined one-piece ferrule and precision-ground tip. SEVR’s patented Lock-and-Pivot non-barbed blades lock open on impact. The blades then pivot as needed to keep arrows driving straight through game even on steep quartering shots and bone impacts. This increases penetration versus regular rear-deploy non-pivoting broadheads. The Stretch Cut blade effect stretches the hide while cutting for a larger-than-blade wound diameter for bigger blood trails and easier recovery. And for hunting practice, SEVR’s exclusive patented Practice Lock keeps the blades locked and contained so you can practice with actual broadheads to verify true point-of-impact without dulling blades.

4. Trophy Taker Shuttle T-LOK Maverick
Trophy Taker’s Shuttle T-LOK was inspired by NASA’s space shuttle design and its aerodynamic functionality. As a result, the Shuttle T-LOK flies quietly, consistently, and the penetration is great. The new Shuttle T-LOC Maverick was intended to advance an already successful broadhead with even more cutting surface by adding a fourth blade. This four-blade broadhead is even quieter and more accurate in flight, while providing a 1-3/16-inch cutting diameter and an overall total cutting surface of 3 inches. This 100-grain offering is made of 100% heat-treated stainless steel, providing maximum durability. The T-shaped design keeps the blades from separating on impact. The Shuttle T-LOK Maverick is available in May 2023 at retailers around the United States.

5. SIK SK2
The SK2 by SIK is an excellent two-blade, rear-deploying, 100-grain mechanical broadhead. This field-point-accurate option uses patented FliteLoc Technology to guarantee the signature Offset Blade Design will deploy on impact. This produces a 2-inch offset entry wound and a 3.625-inch cutting surface.

6. Ramcat Hemoshock Broadhead
The Hemoshock by Ramcat leans on field-point-like accuracy, massive entry wounds, and severe internal damage. The Hemoshock uses the Air Foil Technology found on other Ramcat broadheads. Bowhunters will find this design to fly very accurately. Combined with a 2¼-inch expandable cutting surface, this is the largest, most lethal Ramcat available. The innovative O-Ring blade deployment design allows archers to adjust based on bow type (compound or crossbow) or draw weight. This versatility allows for all bowhunters and crossbow hunters to use the same broadhead, without special collars or questions to worry about. The 100-grain Hemoshock will be available in May 2023.

7. Ramcat Hydroshock Pivoting Broadhead
This unique design was one of the most popular choices for this year among bowhunters. It has been called the most accurate, deepest penetrating fixed blade broadhead. Incorporating proven aircraft technology, the Hydroshock flies exactly like a field point when shot from any bow, at any speed. The patented Airfoil System creates field point accuracy while Firenock Aero Concentric Technology eliminates thread slip and the Back-Cut Technology features both front and rear sharpened blades. 100 grains.

8. Ramcat Hemoshock DP
The Hemoshock DP is an exciting new addition to the Ramcat line and is specifically designed to create deeper penetration on impact for all bowhunters — no matter their draw weight or energy. “There’s a fine line with cutting diameter and overall penetration, and especially for bowhunters that have lower draw weights and draw lengths. This is a major consideration when choosing a broadhead,” said Jaime Dykman – Arcus Hunting, LLC Director of Product Development. “We engineered this broadhead to have a more narrow three-blade angle and profile designed to increase penetration without sacrificing overall cutting surface. You get all the foundational Ramcat technologies, with deeper penetration and a 2-inch cutting surface, making the Hemoshock DP one of the most accurate and reliable broadheads on the market.”
The Hemoshock DP will be available in May 2023 at retailers around the United States.

The integration of NC technology into Rage’s classic designs further enhances each head’s reliability and functionality in the field. Newly incorporated NC (No Collar) technology integrated blade containment system utilizes cutting-edge finger-like tabs on the blades’ pivot point to “anchor” the blades in place while in the closed position. This technology completely eliminates the need for a Shock Collar, dental band or O-ring, while still providing a 100% reliable blade retention system.
Each 2-blade version incorporates premium-grade aluminum ferrules and ultra-tough .035” thick and razor-sharp stainless-steel blades for exceptional performance on game animals of all sizes.
