Arrowdynamic Solutions Diamond Edition Gobbler Guillotine, designed for headshots only, eliminates tracking jobs when your aim is true. If the leading edges become dull, you can reverse the four titanium blades to restore lethality. The cutting width of this 125-grain "lopper" is 3" x 3". The blades can be positioned for safe carry in your quiver. Contact: Arrowdynamic Solutions, 512/515-6299, www.arrowds.com.
G5 Outdoors T3 is a three-blade mechanical with a 11/2" cutting diameter. A neat feature of this 100% steel head is the new Spider Clip blade-retention system, which allows you to tune blade deployment. One clip has less tension for easier deployment out of low-poundage bows. The second clip has a higher tension for speed bows or for shooting through the mesh windows of a blind. Fieldpoint accuracy and a big cutting diameter make this a deadly new head for turkeys and big game. Contact: G5 Outdoors, 1-866-456-8836, www.g5outdoors.com.
