Magnus Snuffers, very sharp right out of the package, tough as nails, spin true, cut to the tip, easy to resharpen when needed, and never fail to punch two holes with one being in and one being out the otherside.

I just switched to G5 Strikers 125 grain. They fly very well. Haven't used them hunting yet, but I believe I will like them.

Switched from Rage 2-blades. Used them for two years and didn't experience a problem. Just wanted to go back to fixed blade broadheads. Mainly, because I see a lot of non pass-throughs on the videos of hunters using Rage. I'm also paranoid of the blades opening up during flight and my arrow flying off target.

Used Thunderhead 125's for 10 years or more. Killed a lot of deer with them. Never had a problem with them. Rage's marketing made me think I needed to switch. So I did.

Rage 2 blade. They aren't the best at penetration but you don't need it if the animal only goes 40 uards. Plus they're really accurate with my setup.

I also use Muzzy 125 3 blades. Started off with the 100 gr, but later was gifted some 125's and they fly better out of my setup. I also prefer the heavier head. Done the job on every opportunity so far. Too bad no big boys have come within range so far...just the girls. They sure do taste good though!

G5 100 Gr, Strikers, They fly exactly like my field points and slice through blind mesh with no effect on arrow flight, incredible penetraion- nothing but pass throughs since I've been shooting them. I used mechanicals before, I feel the Strikers, Slick Tricks and Muzzy's are much more dependable and versatile with less worries. But the Striker is my favorite of all the fixed blades.

I forgot to mention that all Magnus broadheads come with a LIFE TIME GARAUNTEE! If you ever break and or damage a Magnus, simply send the damaged or broken broadhead to Magnus, and they will replace it, FREE!! Can't beat that with a stick.

Muzzy Phantoms 220 grain. I get 21 % FOC with an arrow weight of 543 grains. They are cut on contact, and the blades are .040 thick.. I will never use another broad head.
I hit a monster buck last year at 45 yards, knocked him off his feet. His feet went straight up in the air. Not many want to take the plunge into high FOC because they are hung up on speed. I'd rather have the K.E. than the speed any day.

Crimson Talon XT for fixed
NAP Spitfire for Mech

Both do some serious damage!
