Highlights-Offset sharpening forces the broadhead to rotate inflight, working in tandem with the fletchings-Broadhead continues to rotate after impact, resulting in superior penetration and a larger wound channel-Very durable build
BreakdownThe Helix broadhead was created by Tim Strickland of Strickland’s Archery. Tim set out to create the perfect broadhead. He didn’t want a broadhead that would just put a big hole in the game he was after; he wanted the best overall performance in his equipment, including accuracy, penetration, cutting diameter, etc.
The Strickland Helix Broadhead Arrowhead's single bevel, aerodynamic design means it works in tandem with the fletching. This is a unique principle in broadhead design: steerage from the front, which results in greater overall stability in flight. The secret to creating the helix effect comes from the sharpening process. While the Helix Arrowhead may appear to be a simple two-blade design, the offset sharpening process yields a unique hunting broadhead that is forced to rotate in flight. Front rotation from the arrowhead combined with back rotation from the fletching results in greater stability in flight. In other words - your arrow goes where it's aimed.
With a single bevel broadhead you don't only get added accuracy, but also better penetration. The arrow rotation continues at impact due to tissue pressure pushing against one bevel causing it to rotate. There are several advantages to this, but the most obvious is when the arrow penetrates bone. The bevel induced rotation tends to cause massive bone breaks, especially in heavier bone; whereas a double bevel simply tries to force its way directly through. The Helix Arrowhead is sharpened on the back to first, helps reduce friction, which aids penetration. Any type of blade that enters meat creates a wrap-around effect. The extra cutting surface on the blade's back eliminates meat caving in around the arrowhead and as a result, lessens the wrap-around effect. Second, if the Helix Arrowhead remains in the animal, its razor-sharp, multiple cutting edges are working with every move the animal makes.

not what expected
Broadheads fly well for me and were sharp out of the box. Ultimately, I'm not a fan of the shape, susceptible to bending after a missed shot. If you like the Ashby recommended geometry for broadheads then you'll like these.
I haven’t been able to use them yet but will be in a few weeks on an elk hunting trip. Wish me luck - Garon Weathers
Matched to a right offset three fletch arrow getting field point accuracy.
Will need to be honed for hunt sharpness. They come pretty sharp but are easily honed to razor sharp.
Haven’t hunted with them yet. But if you can shoot a bare shaft straight, these will fly great. I‘m not the worlds best shot but I have shot them to 70 yards and they hit with my field tips.
They need some tlc to trim hair but with a wax wheel on a bench grinder it goes quick.
