If you are looking for one of the toughest and best 100 grain broadheads, the Carbon Express XT 4-Blade is it. These are ultra durable, long lasting, and the main blades can sure take a beating. Carbon Express specializes in broadheads and consistency, which means the XT 4-Blade is an exceptional piece of equipment. For a modest price, this is a premium product that will compete with even the most expensive broadheads on the market currently.
XT 4 Blade Construction
This four blade broadhead is actually two main blades and two removable bleeder blades. The main blades are a solid one piece construction. Both sets of blades are sharpened on the back for maximum penetration. However, it is highly recommended that these blades be sharpened out of the package to hone their edge before use. Some users have found they are mildly dull and need a good sharpening to bring them up to par. The bleeder blades can be a bit tough to sharpen due to their small size, but they are also easy to replace. The main blades are fixed and cannot be replaced. They are very sturdy and can endure practice shots as well as be recovered from fallen game. To this end, the main blades will hold up great against regular use and will resist nicks or becoming dull too quickly. On the other hand, the bleeder blades are weak, fragile, and made of a cheaper material. Rigorous practice or successful hunting may cause the bleeders to get damaged and need replacing.
Heavy Knock Down Power and Accuracy
The cutting diameter is 1 ⅛” and main blade thickness a heavy 0.058”. The curved blades and sharpened backs generate fantastic penetration. The cut-on-contact design will slice through various game and bury deep - if not pass through entirely. Many hunters report being left with wide and easy to follow blood trails. The prey usually doesn’t make it more than 60 yards before going down. First time hunters have found them a joy to use, bagging their first deer with what are some of the best 100 grain broadheads.
As far as accuracy goes, the Carbon Express XT 4-Blade Broadhead has some of the best around. With minimal tuning the broadhead flies true, much like a field point. You will easily be shooting within an inch of your bullseye and it will only get better with practice and minor adjustments. If for some reason the shots are off, I recommend fiddling with the ferrule screw to perfect the spin and you will be set. Whether it is from 30 yards or 50 yards these are some precise broadheads that hit their mark as if shooting with your field points. Not only are they accurate, they are also perfectly silent.
Awesome Customer Service Included
Carbon Express is also a great company to work with. Hunters who have received a damaged product were able to get a replacement, no questions asked, and kept the usable broadheads from their original package free of charge. Their customer service is fantastic. When hunting season is right around the corner and you need your gear, good service is invaluable.
XT 4 Blade Conclusion
The combination of main blade durability, easy to sharpen blades, and awesome accuracy makes these Carbon Express broadheads a great choice for the hunting season. Some would even compare them to Solid broadheads, but for half the price. As one of the best 100 grain broadheads, they will fly true, penetrate deep, puncture lungs, and bring down deer and elk with ease. These are the perfect option if you are looking for a long lasting broadhead that can compete with expensive varieties while on staying on within your budget.
