Love them at under 40 yards. Hate them after 40. Lol. Especially for Pronghorn need a good flying head out to 80 yards. I killed my buck at 72 yards with a Swakker.

^^^What he said^^^
They do not fly well at longer ranges for me either...hard to get them to spin well.

Been shooting the originals for almost 20 years now, I've always been able to get them to fly good, I always seem to find deals on them at Walmart when they start clearing out their archery stuff in Nov/Dec time frame and usually get them for about $3 per broadhead. I haven't seen what others have with issues flying over 40 yards. I've taken a bear at 80 yards, A bull at 75 yards and numerous other animals out to 60 yards.

The only issue I've ever had with one is that it didn't blow through the 4 inch tree that I hit trying to thread the needle on a bull a couple years ago

I don't see myself switching to anything else anytime soon.

Eastern whitetail hunter here. Used the original 100 gr 3-blades for 15 years. Killed everything from 60# does to 200# Iowa bucks.
Never taken a shot over 30 yards but practice with them out to 50. Bought some of the 4 blades a couple years ago. Fly very similar to the 3-blades from my bow, but I still hunt with the 3's.

There have been a few times when I thought I should have had a better blood trail, but that may have been before I started putting new blades in every year. Even if I don't shoot the blades, during a season, I replace them.

Don't see myself changing so I guess I'm a love 'em.

I've been using Muzzy broadheads for over 25 years. If you're having problems with them shooting past 40... it's not the broadhead. It's either poor tuning or poor form. I killed a Coues deer at 60 last year with the MX3. Absolutely no reason for me to go shopping for another broadhead. Ed F

I used to shoot the MX3 and there was a noticeable difference in field tips versus the MX3 from my bow. I switched to the slick Tricks about 4 years ago and won't ever go back. Just my opinion. Good luck. Use what shoots best from your setup. Sharp blades in proper location should always be lethal.

I shot Muzzy's for a bit when I first started. Kept breaking or badly chipping the blades. The Trophy Taker Shuttles are a good alternative. They took a beating and even look tough as hell. Tuned pretty easy too. Dan Evans can't be wrong! I recently switched to mechanicals though. No reason, just want to see how they perform in the field.

Sames here - Had issues with muzzy's planing in the wind and at long distance. Shoot shuttle T locks for 10 years now and they fly true to field points. They are not the best at penetration, but always enough to get the job done.

IMO - if you are individually tuning each arrow and broadhead you can get anything to fly - the average guy including myself doesn't care to do that, I want to screw on a head and have it hit the same spot my field point did at 50 yards and get out in the field.

Our group does not like muzzy heads.....they are all over the place at longer distances and in the wind. Why shoot an old technology head when there are several new technology aero dynamic heads out there like G-5 's , slick tricks, etc. and the comments about its the shooter....not the heads in BS....

My first achery elk was killed with a muzzy 3 blade at an embarassingly long distance. Luck and stupidity but it flew well and i had practiced farther.

As others stated mid to long distances they will fly erratic.

I shoot 125 gr montecs and they group with field points out to 80 yards
