Your favorite broadhead! And why!
 
Mine is slick trick because i have not yet not had a passthrough, in my opinion there is nothing better!

bigbulls 06-30-2010 08:09 PM

Slick Trick magnums.

All steel construction.
Very consistent weights from one to the next.
Blades are scalpel sharp.
.035" thick blades are nearly unbreakable.
Blade retention is second to none.
Excellent flight characteristics
Massive cutting ability (more than most mechanicals)

Muzzy 125 grain 3 blade.

Inexpensive, tough, reliable and you can buy them just about anywhere.

Haven't let me down yet.

Muzzy 100 grn fixed blade broad head. It simply works... don't fall apart on contact and for more years than I care to admit to, they've brought home the back straps. Of coarse you have to back up any good broad head with an arrow that has enough weight to help punch a hole through the other side so I use Easton AC super slims (11.5 grns per in.) Great kenetic energy down range. Still there's no replacement for "one well placed arrow".

luke/r 07-02-2010 08:12 AM

Muzzy and SlickTrick I have two favorites!

newton29 07-02-2010 04:59 PM

Muzzy 3-blade 100 grain. Kills deer dead and I have found no reason to change.

BOWHUNTERCOP 07-03-2010 09:34 AM

Muzzy 3 blade 100gr., been using them for many many years, well proven, also from time to time I use Rage 100gr. 2 blade, huge hole

3tail 07-03-2010 02:12 PM

thunderheads never had one go more than 70 yards, but arent passthroughs a good thing because of blood on both sides?

Kreagerm 07-03-2010 07:48 PM

Muzzy mx3 100gr. No problem with pass throughs.

sixgunluvr 07-06-2010 03:54 PM

Ditto....also if you happen to hit something REALLY hard you can replace the chisel tip.

Howler 07-07-2010 06:36 AM

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.

Doubled 150 07-07-2010 01:04 PM

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.

pighunter270 07-07-2010 01:22 PM

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.

Bible_Man 07-07-2010 01:51 PM

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!

bama man 07-09-2010 08:51 PM

100 gr. thunderheads for over 20 years.

4evrhtn 07-09-2010 09:20 PM

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.

Chuck7 07-11-2010 05:42 PM

Steel Force ..tight groups

Howler 07-13-2010 09:33 AM

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.

The Rev 07-18-2010 10:04 PM

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.

Western MA Hunter 07-19-2010 06:17 AM

Crimson Talon XT for fixed
NAP Spitfire for Mech

Both do some serious damage!

camelcluch 07-19-2010 02:49 PM

Rocky Mtn Gators. A rear deploying blade that has no ring, clamp or any other mishappening part. They have a 2" cut and work.

_zink_ 07-19-2010 05:11 PM

muzzy 100 grn 4 blade

pa_yote_hunter 07-19-2010 09:22 PM

I currently use Muzzy 100grain 3 blade. I have had no problem with them at all. They fly straight with my set-up. No need to switch unless I am gifted with some other ones to try out and like them more....until then its Muzzys all the way

Plotter 07-21-2010 09:51 AM

Just switched to g5 T3's this year from the fixed blade montecs. haven't shot a deer with them but loved them through turkey season.

yukonmountainman 07-21-2010 12:39 PM

was shooting mech, and never got a pass through. then went back to muzzys, they shoot good, but have to re adjust from field points to broadheads. trying slick tricks this year

jag-mag 07-22-2010 05:07 PM

Triton wac em 3 blade cut on contact head, fly like darts and
every deer that I have shot with this head has been consumed.

buck-i 07-24-2010 07:37 PM

love my vortex 100 gr.2inch cut. i get what i want from a broadhead a dead deer if i do my part...

Vulture6 07-25-2010 09:20 AM

I shoot the old 100 grain G5 Tekan II (not the new Tekans). When they discontinued them a couple of years ago I bought several. Accurate, reliable, and (knock on wood) always pass through.

shoot2thrill25 07-25-2010 05:37 PM

I am surprised that muzzy seems to be the most popular on here. I really expected to see a lot of rage, and slick trick seems to be pretty big on here. I LOVE muzzy mx3s. Switched to them two years ago from standard muzzy 3 blades, which were also great.

UncleNorby 07-29-2010 05:44 AM

You WANT your arrow to pass through the deer. "Never had a passthrough yet" means you have had really bad luck, you are not shooting enough DW for your choice of broadhead, or are shooting your deer in the wrong spot.

I prefer fixed blade heads. Cabelas FX-3 work just fine for me. Easy to tune to hit with FPs, solidly built, and they cost around $20 for 6.

Buffinator 07-29-2010 10:56 AM

MX-4 for me

Magicbh 07-30-2010 02:47 AM

Muzzy Phantoms out of my recurve, slick tricks out of my compound. Both heads could be switched in and out on either set up and would work / fly great.

joelgds 08-03-2010 07:55 AM

NAP Nightmare's Good construction, and Razor Sharp. The new NAP Thunderhead edge looks interesting too.

bruin1951 08-04-2010 06:09 PM

For years it was a 4 blade Muzzy at the time it was the best flying fixed blade in my opinion, until I tried the Slick Trick 100 grain they fly the best for me and the penetration has not been a problem. Every year I buy a different expanable and chicken out on using them every year but i do believe they are the future. I guess I am just old school.

Boogeyman24 08-04-2010 06:21 PM

I've always used 100 grain 3-Blade Thunderheads, but am switching to NAP Spitfire Maxx expandables, hoping the 1 3/4" cut will live up to my expectations.

DougE 08-05-2010 02:48 PM

What expectation are you looking for?I've

dm66 08-05-2010 08:46 PM

Muzzy 3-blade 100 gr have done the job for me .

aarontriton 08-06-2010 11:00 AM

Ditto on the Muzzy MX-4 it has done the trick for me

deerslayer706 08-08-2010 09:17 PM

rage 2 blade broadheads are beast....never had a single problem..Your just not gonna get a hole like this with any other broadhead...And its really about the hunter...A bad shot..is a bad shot..If you put ANY broadhead in the right spot...its gonna do the job..Its up to the hunter on what he prefers.


hoghunter84 08-09-2010 01:21 AM
