The best advice I can give you is to check out my website www.broadheadtests.com read through all the info and then if you have any questions feel free to email me or post them here. In general though mechancial heads can be very effective if you choose the right one for you setup.

Anybody remember the old punchcutters? Those babies were pretty sweet.

Yeah, they were wicked!!! Duno what happened to them.


I've used the Vortex broadheads and had good luck. I've since moved to fixed blades just because I had heard bad things about mechs and quartering away shots. I never experinced a problem though.

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you. The design of the Punchcutter was a very inefficient one for blade deployment by today's standards. However, I still took several deer with them, one in particular with my old Golden Eagle Pro Turbo that delivered a whopping 44 ft. lbs. of KE and I still got a pass through. The blades were very sharp on the Punchcutters and they were made of high quality aluminum and werevery well put together.

The worst broadheads I have had experience with were the Puckett's Bloodtrailers. They had the same concept as Punchcutters, but with very loose tolerances and poor quality materials. It felt like the blades were going to fall out of them they were so bad.

To answer the original question, my experience with mechanicals is that they kill deer good.

I have killed 5 elk in the past 5 years with Rocket Aeroheads the farthest track job was about 70 yds. Exit holes were very impressive. Shot placement baby shot placement.

Mechs b-heads are awesome! No one can argue that the Rocket Steelhead series heads are absolutely wicked! I've tried dozens of different b-heads on game but not even any of the popular fixed blades have compared to the incredible penetration I get from the Steelheads!
