Although broadheads are often the last thing bowhunters purchase before season, they are easily one of the most important parts of a setup. I have a hunch that this is largely due to the fact that expandable broadheads are typically very expensive. The new Thorn XV’s could very well be the most affordable expandable broadheads I’ve shot that didn’t sacrifice quality and accuracy.
The new Thorn XV is made in the USA, and comes in at the $39.95 price point. At less than $40, it is safe to say that this is one of the most affordable expandable broadheads in the industry. Along with being offered at a great price point, the XV has been tested on air bows rated up to 750 feet per second!
The body of the broadhead is constructed of 70/75 aircraft grade aluminum that embodies the extremely sharp 440 stainless steel blades. New to the XV is the blade deployment system. Compared to the other expandable broadheads in the Thorn line, the XV has a solid conical tip, and the blades are deployed from the exposed blade spurs. Thorn did keep the sheer pin design on the new XV to hold the blades in when not deployed.
My favorite part about all of the Thorn broadheads is the field point accuracy guarantee. While making one of the most affordable expandable broadheads, Thorn has not sacrificed the field point accuracy with the XV.
If you are tired of overpaying for your expandable broadheads, and don’t want to sacrifice durability or accuracy, then look no further than the Thorn XV. I never would have thought that the most affordable expandable broadheads would be my favorite, but these are very well on their way to earning that title for me.
