Like no other two The Helix Arrowhead is the culmination of a lifetime of hunting and shooting experience. The Helix is the most accurate, best penetrating, most lethal hunting broadhead you are likely to shoot. One serious piece of metal; made of stainless steel, 62-thousandths of an inch thick (72-thousandths for 125 gr.) and honed to a razor's edge, most other hunting broadheads aren't even half as thick Single bevel, aerodynamic design works in tandem with the fletching which results in greater overall stability in flight 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 Superior penetration and a massive wound channel...larger in diameter than the width of the broadhead Sharpened on the back to reduce friction and aid in penetration' Right Bevel designed for use with right wing, right offset or right helical fletched arrows

The 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 kill the game he was after; he wanted overall performance in his equipment. Plan for the worst and hope for the best. What was created? Perfection… Single bevel technology: Single bevel broad heads are not new technology. The first single bevel head in modern times actually hit production almost three decades ago. There are stone points found with single bevel edges! Most everyone knows that arrows rotate or spin in flight due to the fletching. But what happens at impact and beyond? A double bevel broadhead’s rotation stops at impact. Unless it hits a hard medium such as bone etc. It does not deviate from it’s path and leaves a straight wound channel with zero rotation. This happens due to the horizontal pressure being applied to both bevels from the tissue, making them push against each other which in turn keeps the broadhead straight. With a single bevel broadhead 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; where as a double bevel simply tries to force its way directly through. The Helix Principle The term Helix refers to a twist or rotation. Arrow rotation is crucial for shot accuracy. That's the whole reason for fletching. Fletching causes rotation from the back of the arrow. Unfortunately, many broadheads tend to plane in flight and can actually counteract the benefits of rotation caused by the fletching. The Helix 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. The benefits of the helix principle don't end with flight. The rotation of the Helix Arrowhead continues upon impact. This means superior penetration and a massive wound channel...larger in diameter than the width of the broadhead.
