Muzzy Outdoors, the makers of the world’s number-one selling fixed-blade broadhead, introduced the Trocar broadhead three years ago, and with its field-point-like accuracy and unbelievably lethal performance on game, the Trocar quickly became one of the company’s hottest selling and most successful broadhead designs. This year, Muzzy has created a new addition to the Trocar lineup with the introduction of the company’s first adjustable-cutting-diameter broadhead, the Trocar Switch.
The Trocar Switch features three razor-sharp 0.035-inch-thick blades that can be quickly and easily positioned in one of three settings for a 1-inch, 1 1/8-inch or 1 1/4-inch cutting diameter. The three configurations provide the hunter with extreme flexibility to customize the broadhead to the hunt or to the most-accurate bow setup. Where a bowhunter might choose the 1 1/4-inch blade placement for shorter shots in thick brush, the hunter may choose the 1-inch placement for increased accuracy, stability and penetration at shooting distances nearing 100 yards or when hunting large-bodied game animals.
The blades are set at a 2-degree right offset in the stainless steel Trocar ferrule, and each one is affixed by a steel shoulder screw with a steel blade-position collar keeping the blades locked into one of three positions. To change the cutting diameter of the Trocar Switch, simply loosen the broadhead on the arrow a few turns, slide down the blade collar, position each blade on the notch for the desired cut, and twist the broadhead tight to the arrow.
The new 100-grain Trocar Switch joins the other four models in the Trocar line: the standard 100-grain Trocar, the Deep Six 100-grain Trocar, the 100-grain Crossbow Trocar and the 125-grain Crossbow Trocar.
