1.1 This guide covers the formulation of preliminary guidelines in six areas of broadhead performance and safety.
1.2 The first three guidelines, flight, penetration, and sharpness, are related to performance, but they can have some bearing on safety. The last three, impact resistance, assembly and attachment methods, and packaging, determine to a great degree the safety level of the broadhead in the hands of the end user.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
