Any good quality fixed blade broadhead that flies good out of your Bow.. Myself I use Rage two blades, but they're not for everyone.

I have been using 100gr. 4 bladed Muzzys for years, very satisfied with there performace on deer, elk, and bear. Never had the need to look at any other broadhead, 20 years of satisfaction for me. That question however is like asking what is the best beer made, you are going to get many different answers, all based on peoples personal preference.

I like Muzzys. My second choice would be Muzzys. If I ran out of Muzzys, I'd try to borrow some Muzzys from a friend.

I'm looking at Muzzys. Do you find 3 or 4 blades most effective and fly truest?

Can't say what's the best but I like Rage for expandables and Muzzy's or G5's for fixed. You can hunt any north American animal with a 60lb bow.

i like rage 2 blade for the fact they fly like a field point no tuning involved have killed 3 elk with them at 62lbs draw weight. muzzys are great used them for years but i cant get as good of consistency as with rage u have to make sure they are aligned with veins in my experince. but they are a great broadhead.

Don't know how new you are to archery or just new to hunting with sticknstring, but I would suggest not using cut on contact for first try. These seem to be a little more finicky to tune. Thunderhead or muzzy would be good to start out with. I think they may be a little more forgiving. I had good results with thunderheads for several years. I have recently switched to Rages, but for begginer messing with the expandables during hunting might be a little more than you want right now. The archery forum might be a little better place to get more an snswers. Good luck.
