Review on 3 giraffes taken with VIKING 180 gr.
Setup: 83#@29". Total arrow weight 792gr.
Johan Grobler from "Die Jagwinkel" in Namibia has taken this wonderful Giraffe with noticeable equipement:
73 Pound bow, 795 grain total arrow weight, Viking 125 gr.
Please notice this was a test done by professionals. WE DO NOT recommend to use a 125 gr. broadhead for big game with heavy bones like this. Our 180+200 gr. "Big Game Broadheads" are full steel broadheads and perfect for really big game with heavy bone struture.
Johan took the shot at 50 yds, what was the closest he managed to approach. Taking that into consideration - as well as the rather weak setup for that game size - we were amazed to see that the 125 gr. Viking Broadhead managed to smash one rib on the entrance side, penetrate through the whole cavity and could only be stopped by 2 ribs on the exit side.

Newest field report about heavy bone contact by Henk Badenhorst:
Material & Design Updates
Rounded off back edge & new temperature treatment
The back edge of our blade was always a point, that we wanted to improve.
For all models sent from July 2012:
1) Back edge is rounded off
a) Less pulling resistance from targets
b) Dead silent in flight
2) A new temperature treatment is applied, that
a) results in the perfect broadhead material:
- Soft enough in the core to avoid any breaking (On top remember our blades are 2 mm - 0,079 inches on all sizes, also the 100 gr. models) even a modern cross bow under extreme conditions could cause
- Very hard on the outside to withstand bones & stones
b) Results in the perfect material attributes:
- Reusable time after time again
- Holds up sharpness very long & easy to resharpen
New VIKING Broadhead models are ready
Our range= 7 different sizes. We have one for every occasion:
For 180+200 gr. we are having 2 different sizes available. One with a bigger blade and aluminium alloy ferrule. One with a shorter blade and steel ferrule.
Rean Steenkamp, editor/publisher at Africas Bowhunter magazin tells how he shot a blue wildebeest with his 54-pound recurve and a 125 gr. VIKING Broadhead just as darkness was settling over the blind.
