I like the Rocky Mountain Snyper. With the two blade mechanical and the cut on contact tip one hell of an entry wound is made and the blood trail is like none I have ever seen!!!!

I also believe it's personal preference. I think as long as you buy a quality broadhead (expandable or fixed) you will be fine. With broadheads like those (quality)as long as you do your job, they will do theirs.

My opinion, I would probably have to say some of the shorter replacement blade heads on the market. Mechanicals are great for accuracy out of any bow but you really have to know your KE levels in order to gauge how effect they are going to be for you. Because of this I would not recomment them for everyone. Cut on contact heads are excellent penetrators but their large surface area makes them much more finicky to tune. Traditional replacement blade heads like Muzzys and T-heads are also very good but can suffer from some of the same issues as the Cut on contact heads.

Just my two cents but in general I do agree that it can boil down to personal preference in many cases.

Mechanicals work very well, but I've been a Muzzy man from almost day one. I've tried other heads but not many can hang with the Muzzy for penetration. There just plain and simply THOUGH mothers!!!!

If the blades are SHARP and the arrowis flying true it really doesn't make a difference in anything over about a 50# bow. Deer sized game.
