The Best Broadhead of 2024: SEVR’s Ti 1.5 4-Blade Hybrid

SEVR filled a cutting-diameter niche last year when it gave bowhunters the 1.75 Ti. For 2024, SEVR creates its first-ever hybrid. A SEVR 1.5 Ti on steroids, the Ti 1.5″ 4-Blade Hybrid comes with a .7-inch fixed bleeder blade and promises big-game devastation.

Over the years, I’ve tested many broadheads. According to my journal, over 60 models. Today, only two brands find their way into my quiver.

Let me be clear: the market has many unique fixed, mechanical, and hybrid broadhead options and many excel. However, for me, hunting is a matter of trust and confidence. I’m discerning, particularly regarding the broadhead I rely on to consistently fill my freezer.

I was hooked when I fired a SEVR Titanium 1.5 downrange. I prefer mechanical heads to fixed-blade builds. Accuracy is one of the most significant reasons for this, and I’ve yet to shoot a broadhead that hits right with my field points like those from SEVR.

Over the years, I’ve harvested elk, big horn sheep, pronghorn, turkey, bear, mule deer, white-tailed deer, and other animals with SEVR heads. While the 1.5 is my number one go-to for western big game, I prefer the larger cutting diameter 2.0 for turkeys. The 1.75 is “just right” for whitetail.

One of my favorite features is Practice Lock. By inserting a single set screw into the open, threaded hole in the titanium ferrule, the blades lock in place. With the blades locked in place, shooters can practice with the same broadheads they plan to hunt with, which every bowhunter should do, regardless of what broadhead they choose.

Other proven features that have allowed this broadhead to gain a legion of followers include Lock-and-Pivot and Max Penetration Stainless Steel Blades.

Sleek and compact, the non-barbed blades stay contained in the ferrule until impact. This design ensures remarkable downrange accuracy. When the needle-point head enters an animal, and the pair of wings contact hide, the blades spring to life and lock in place, but they pivot. This locked, pivoting action allows the arrow to track seamlessly behind the broadhead to ensure maximum penetration. The .032-inch-thick blades are razor sharp, and the swept-back cutting angle design provides a deep penetrating wound channel.

SEVR’s 1.5 Titanium would be up first in 2024. I drew a Nevada archery mule deer tag I’d been applying for.

Then, I got an email from SEVR, and things changed.

Enter SEVR’s Titanium (Ti) 1.5″ 4-Blade Hybrid

When I opened the SEVR branded box, I spied a trio of what appeared to be the identical 1.5s I’ve put my bowhunting trust in. The plastic box holding each head was more extensive, and upon inspection, I noticed SEVR added a .7-inch wide fixed bleeder blade.

Upon inspection, the blade felt sturdy and ridiculously sharp. The second Practice Lock hole was in the ferrule, and aside from the new blade that makes this head a hybrid, the broadhead looked the same.

I appreciate purposeful innovation and applaud not going overboard. SEVR’s original 1.5 Ti is one of the finest mechanical broadheads ever. Why alter and add features that don’t make sense?

The new SEVR Ti 1.5″ 4-Blade Hybrid still features Lock-and-Pivot Blades, Practice Lock, Stretch Cut, and other features that made the original an instant classic. Adding a fixed bleeder blade to this rear-deploying mechanical increases cutting diameter without sacrificing SEVR’s renowned precision process.

The SEVR Ti 1.5″ 4-Blade Hybrid is available in 100 and 125 grains with standard 8-32 threads and 100-grain Deep Six threads.

Why Bleeder Blades?

I’ve shot hybrid-style broadheads with bleeder blades and found the blades purposeful. To some, miniature blades extending from the left and right side of the ferrule may seem pointless. I promise they are not.

As good as modern-day mechanical broadheads are, they are mechanical devices that can fail. The reason many bowhunters gravitate toward fixed-blade broadheads is the assurance that the broadhead will cut and kill upon impact.

Though a .7-inch cutting diameter isn’t much, it’s enough. I also appreciate that the blade is one piece, not a pair of blades. After extensive testing of this broadhead, I can promise that if the main blades failed, these tiny bleeder blades would kill an animal if the arrow is in the animal’s vitals. They are ultra-durable and scary sharp.

Field Test

I’ve grown to despise broadhead reviews. Nobody wants to make suggestions, note areas for improvement, etc.

How should consumers know what they’re buying if the review isn’t complete—if it withholds certain truths?

I promise what you’re about to read about SEVR’s shiny new penny is the truth. I’ve tested the broadhead extensively and discovered it to be even more accurate than the original.

I don’t know how SEVR did it, but I shot three 100-gain field points from 70 yards, three original 1.5s, and three 1.5 Ti Hybrids. The wind was calm. My three 1.5 Ti Hybrids grouped tighter and closer to my field points than the original 1.5 Ti heads.

I repeated the process from 80 and 90 yards, and the results were the same. These heads are ultra-accurate. Adding the bleeder blades created a bit more noise in flight, but it wasn’t extensive. These slim, sleek broadheads fly like miniature guided missiles. After shooting them, I can’t wait to take them to Nevada. These broadheads will fill you with instant confidence, and in bowhunting, confidence is king!

I applaud SEVR’s 2.0 Ti. I love more significant cuts. However, I have seen reduced penetration on larger game animals, and my 1.5s simply fly better—not much, but enough—over the 2.0s at extended ranges. With this new 1.5 Ti Hybrid, I’m getting a cutting diameter of over 2 inches and not losing any downrange energy. The .7-inch wide bleeder blade is stupidly sharp. I believe it will further help micro-diameter shafts, like Easton’s 4- and 5-mm shafts, track seamlessly behind the broadhead wound channel for increased penetration.

The bleeder blade is so sharp that it doesn’t tear up foam targets. Like the main blades, it is surgical. I beat Morrell’s BIG High Roller Foam Target up with the 1.5 Ti Hybrid heads, and it had no trouble handling the abuse. The bleeder blade doesn’t pull at the foam when you remove arrows, which causes damage to foam targets.

I’ve learned that SEVR doesn’t do things halfway. They don’t launch new products to launch new products. Every product SEVR launches has a purpose, and the purpose of the new 1.5 Ti 4-Blade Hybrid is to provide precision accuracy and be lethal on big-game animals. I highly recommend filling your quiver with them this fall.
