I would have to echo the thoughts regarding the talons not being your best choice.......I shot them two years ago and didn't think they perform as well as should have. I'm shooting 63# and didn't get the penetration I was expecting.For your rig I would also echo the cut on contact style broadhead. I have a buudy who really likes the Montec head, but have also heard several people who prefer the Magnus.

eelriver,

The XT is an updated head for this year. Better blades and looks like a shorter profile
(but I could be wrong).

While the penetration may not be quite as good as a cut on contact, I think it would be
comparable to most chisel tips on the market.

x force,

that is simply not true. I shot them into a block and the blades don't bend. You won't be able
to show us any proof because you don't have any.

I have seen other detailed, non-biased reviews that said that the blades don't bend.
In fact, if bent they go back to their original curve.

What you probably read is that the old blades used to chip or break after hitting bone (with
a dead deer to go with it), and you are just inaccurately repeating that.

I'm not saying that these are the best heads ever and that there aren't plenty of broadheads just
as good or possibly better for your setup (Montec, MX-3, Slick Trick), but to say they bend when
shot in a Block is untrue.

Obviuosly you no experience with Crimson Talon XT's. The blade is in the ferrule all the way to the bottom of the blade unlike the old model. I have put the XT's into a target over 50 times and they have not changed shape in the least. This is a very good, solid blade design now. I think it speaks highly of the spintite folks to recognize a flaw in their design and redesign a tip that works better.

Buy the updated XT version, that's what I bought. My friend shot these BHslast year with a mid 90s model PSE Nova set at 60lbs. Total pass throughs on both bucks, one of which was quarter toward him. Devastating damage & blood loss with his experience, it sold me after I helped him drag the bucks out.

Finally... someone whow can help support me on how sick the Crimson Talon's are. The old were a bit flimbsy, but were devasting on game and flew just like ST's & Field points. The new XT's are even better. They cause a tremendous blood trail...
Even with a marginal hit, they go down quick. These blades are not a gimmick and are no joke!

Welcome to the talon family!
By the way, I shoot the 100 grain. You do have to twist out of the target.

I also shoot the 100 grain, and don't find them any harder to remove from the target. BTW- My friend had bought 3 packs of Crimson Talon 100 grain BHs and wanted the new 125 grain XTs, he contactedthe maker and theytradedhim his 100s for 125s, pretty good customer service if you ask me.

I shot 3 deer last year w/ the old CT's. Got pass throughs on all 3. 1 had damaged blades, the other 2 were fine.
