what do y'all sharpen yours with? I've always used a knife sharpener, never had any issues. but saw a dedicated broad head sharpener at academy the other day. seemed gimmicky

Those cheesy ones from academy will work, just won't last long in my opinion. There are nice ones but you'll pay for them too.

It depends on the head but I normally use just a regular knife sharpening stone

I used the knife sharpener that has the V shaped sharpener built in to plastic with the hand guard . I forget name but they're about $7 at Walmart or Academy. The main thing is too get them sharp....a lot of people don't bother. Which is crazy imo .....

I resharpen my Montecs. I bought the G5 sharpener. It works pretty good and the Montecs are super easy to resharpen. Now, my Rage, i usually just trash em or buy new blades.

I guess I have to take it to the next level, just like my knives I want them razor sharp. I use the V sharpening tools to cut a new edge and then I work that edge to razor sharp with a Honing stone. If you ever want to shave you can all ways grab one my broad heads!

Arkansas stone for my G5s. Plastic V thingy for my thunderheads. Or if they are nicked up just insert new blades.
