For those that shoot qad exodus, has anyone shot them with a 5mm FMJ arrow? Do you find them easy to sharpen?

I have accumulated enough Shuttle Ts that I have a good number of practice broadheads at this point but I am looking to switch and don’t want to have to buy a whole set just for targets.

I shoot QAD 125s with a 340 FMJ. I also use the iron will collars and inserts. I always take the blades out and sharpen ferrule tip. Anyone else do this? I never sharpen the blades, they seem super sharp to me. I always put old blades in when I am testing a hunting arrow. Once I know the arrow flys good I replace the blades with new ones that have never been shot.

My plan has been to stick with a 125, but that doesn't mean I won't do some research into the 150 options you have suggested - thanks
I use to shoot shuttle ts as well but shot a bull in the shoulder and it acted like a bee stung it. Stopped the arrow cold. 80# limbs and a 31" draw. Mature animal and unfortunate shot placement but still disappointing.

VPA 100 gr non-vented. Love the solids! Too bad I didn't get to send one down range this season but they have done well in past years. I usually carry a couple of mechanicals for follow up shots/longer shots and have the SEVRs now.

I ended up going with the 3-blade 125 grain Cutthroats. So got my fingers crossed on performance. I just got them in about a month ago now.

100 gr QAD exodus for me. Was able to put some whitetail in the freezer with them. To answer the above questions I have a hard time sharpening the blades but have good luck touching up the ferrule.

To each there own but I refuse to think I can get a better edge on a razor blade then from factory. That's the purpose IMO of buying a replaceable blade broadhead. There is a reason that surgeries are done with scalpel blades and not a hand sharpened knife. I will shoot heads for practice but change out those blades with factory new ones for hunting if not shoot brand new heads completely. If the tips are fouled up enough they need sharpened IMO they aren't going to fly as true once you sharpen them... My 2 cents for what its worth.
