G5 Tekan or Rocky Snypers?

Postby Newarcher on Mon Aug 24, 2009 8:48 am

Just curious...I have been seeing some shows with the Tekan and seems to have some good results.

What do you guys think?

I shoot a Hoyt Trykon at 28" draw and shoot Goldtip XT's.

I've shot deer with both and believe me the Snyper cuts a much larger entrance and exit hole than the Tekan.

I liver shot a deer with the Tekan and the wound channel wasn't much differnt than a standard 1/1/8 " fixed blade broadhead. It obviously wasn't the best shot location , but I believe the Snyper would have put him down much quicker.

If you were looking at strickly penetration issues , the Tekan might have a slight edge as it does not open as wide on impact.

Thanks Bear, I will stick with the Snypers. I haven't shot a deer with a bow in two years and I am jonesin....just gotta get the last part of my Enrolled Agent exam out of the way on Sept 24th and I am (hopefully free).

I have plenty of Snypers and replacement blades so I will just stick with what works for me. I only had one mediocre result and that was a high angle (good shot) and fat plugged the hole.

I'll give you a field point old man!

In fact, me and my Hoyt and my Snypers could have saved you a bundle on all that surgerization you just had.....

Wi-doe I think his objective is to field dress them and kill them at the same time. I Snyper should work perfect for that. A Rage would cut them in half.

I like the Tekans.......although I have to admit I've never tried the Snypers.
