Evolution Outdoors Broadheads are guaranteed against defects in materials and workmanship with an original sales receipt to the original purchaser. This does not cover “normal wear and tear.” Nor does it cover non-durable parts, which include all broadhead blades. Blades normally require replacement and are specifically excluded from the warranty. Due to the nature of the intended use of a broadhead, Evolution Outdoors can only warranty our broadheads against damages caused exclusively by factory defects and workmanship.
Evolution Outdoors is not responsible for any incidental damages to any other piece of equipment the broadhead may come in contact with. Evolution Outdoors cannot be held liable for any damages or injuries to property, equipment or person that is caused by the improper use of this product.
Evolution Outdoors reserves the right to limit or refuse the return. Used merchandise may be refused. Free goods, received as part of promotional offers or a sale are not eligible for exchange or return.
See our “How to Return an Item” under Customer Satisfaction Center. You will need to contact Evolution Outdoors prior to returning any merchandise for warranty or defective consideration. If you have any questions about our warranty please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recommend having a minimum of 37# of KE for use of the Hyde. In testing the Hyde has been consistent at lower KE numbers but that is a safe number in the field.
This really comes down to personal preference. If you have been a fixed blade person your hunting career then the Jekyll may be the broadhead you want. The same goes with the Hyde if you are strictly a mechanical person. Evolution Outdoors is giving you the consumer the choice. We do encourage you to at least try both sets of blades though.
The Jekyll and Hyde are made in the USA. We do import our blades as we have relationships with blade manufacturers in many countries. We have always looked to have our blades manufactured in the USA but we have yet to find one that wants to manufacture curved blades. Let alone at a competitive price.
The Jekyll has a main fixed blade of 1" in diameter with a front blade of 3/4" in diameter. Both these blades are sharpened on all sides to create a devastating wound channel. This magnifies on a shot that does not get a pass through. The Hyde has the same 3/4" front blade and the mechanicals are 5/8" in the closed position and are 2" when deployed.
They work great on quartering shots and even severe quartering shots. The reason for this comes back to the blade retention system and the curved blade design.

The Hyde broadhead has a patented locking system designed to be consistent on every shot. Simply read the enclosed instructions. For more detailed information please see our video. U.S Pat. No. 10,809,044 B2
Yes, Evolution Outdoors has designed a Crossbow specific version of the Jekyll and Hyde that is extremely effective with crossbows.
Technically the Hyde is designed to start deploying on impact but they are open just inside the skin without draining kinetic energy. The Hyde is fully deployed just inside the skin resulting in maximum damage without the loss of valuable kinetic energy.
Yes, you can shoot through ground blind mesh with the Hyde with no problem what so ever.
Both the Jekyll & Hyde were designed to have great flight in all conditions. Lets face it bowhunters want to screw on a broadhead and go hunting. We feel that both heads are field point accurate, to a point. We recommend that you take which ever broadhead you purchase and go out to the furthest distance that you can shoot a softball size group every time. (This will very with each person) Shoot the Jekyll or Hyde then shoot your field point, they should hit in the same place. When you get to longer ranges, say past 70 yards the Jekyll will fall off faster than the Hyde along with most fixed broadheads compared to your field point. This is due to the drag created from the exposed blades. For more detailed information please see our video for tuning and long range shooting.
