I have heard that they are the sharpest head on the market. But unless someone gives me some free ones I won't switch from Slick Tricks. I have also heard most G5 Montec guys who try the VPA never go back.
Complete opposite in my experience. I was sent a few packs of the 100 grain vented VPA's to test. I was highly disappointed in the sharpness of the blades out of the box. I was told to "touch them up with a stone" prior to ever hunting with them. They are going to need to fix that concept if they want their business to really take off. Most bowhunters are simple minded folks......if they pay $30+ for three broadheads, they expect them to be razor sharp out of the box. Mine wouldn't even shave hair. Once I touched them up, they were fine......however I had to touch them up.
The construction of the VPA is perfect, IMO. Sets them far apart from anything G5 makes. VPA is machined metal versus G5's cast metal. Cast metal has a much lower tinsel than machined, so the VPA should be able to be used over and over, providing you know how to sharpen them correctly. Their flight was pretty good out of the hooter shooter machine. Not as consistent as ST, or Wac'em's at long range but pretty darn good. If I wanted to switch heads, VPA would be a strong candidate.
