Fire-N-the-Hole Broadheads has introduced the Slang Blade four-inch mechanical broadhead, which can be used with compound bows and crossbows alike.

The broadhead is a different design from other mechanical broadheads on the market, keeping three goals in mind: 1) A firing mechanism that guarantees to open every time; 2) the largest cutting radius than any other broadhead; 3) field-point accuracy.

Size: The four-inch cut is attained by removing the ferrule that traditional broadheads have, and replacing it with the weight of the cutting blades. This gives the blades four times more material than traditional blades of other broadheads. Each blade weighs 34.5 grains, which means that 70 percent of the weight of the broadhead is in the blades. This turns blades into small knives, which are tough enough to cut through skin, fur, flesh, bone, vital organs, etc. At 50-thousandths thick and 200-thousandths wide, this makes the four-inch mechanical a durable broadhead that gets the job done.

Cut: The blades are sharpened and beveled in one direction, like the blade of a lawnmower or scissors. Each blade is sharpened to the point, which makes the broadhead cut on contact, giving it one of the sleekest profiles among all mechanical broadheads, resulting in increased accuracy. The Sang Blade spins through the air closed (7/8-inches in flight) and continues spinning through the animal open at four-inches wide for excellent penetration.

Opening Mechanism: The most common complaint of the mechanical broadhead is that it does not open. Fire-N-the-Hole has designed a broadhead that opens using angles, friction, and levers. The cut-on-contact blades engage the game and stab in like knives, while friction and angle move the blades out to the sides they slices through and enters the vitals cavity. This mechanism fully opens within the first inch of penetration, yet saves enough kinetic energy to obtain pass-through shots on most game.
