Default Bipolar Broad heads

I was doing some shooting in the back yard at about 30 yds into a broad head target and dusted off my 100g bipolars from a couple years back and they are not deploying upon impact. They were not breaking the shear pin. I shot 3 of them several times.

I thought even with a softer, layered type broad head target they would break the shear pin, but did not.

Thinking the impact with a deer would certainly cause deployment but wondering if anyone has experienced trouble with them. I have been using the Rage 2 blade for a couple years without any issue but really like the bipolars and some of the destruction they appear to do.

I've had it happen in those soft layered targets. Like you, I was shooting some that had been laying around for a year or so. I've also had it happen with other brands than BiPolar. My guess is that corrosion, rust or dust sets up in them and inhibits they're ability to function properly.

I've never had one not to open shooting an animal. I don't shoot targets with the deployable blades .
