I shot Muzzy's myself and they are a great broadhead. However my G5 Strikers fly just like my field points and I would practice out to 50 yards.

If they both shoot well with your setup, then either one should be fine. a well placed shot will be the best way for a good quick kill, and good blood trail, and is more important than the tip on the end.

Both these Broad heads have 1-1/8th" cutting Diameter, so I'd suggest the mx4, simply because you have the extra blade...one more cut should equal more blood...either one will perform just fine, as long as the shot is good, and neither one will make up for a badly placed shot.
If the blades aren't sharp...and I mean scary sharp the bleeding isn't going to be good. I've seen plenty of perfectly shot deer not leave squat for blood trail even with a pass thru when the blades weren't as sharp as they could/should be. The deer died, but tracking was difficult without a decent blood trail.
100% in agreement there....obviously I was assuming since both are brand new, they are both equally as sharp, but that's not always the case, and I always feel each broad head, and choose the sharpest based on feel.

shoot both. They are both great heads and I would be hard pressed to choose myself.

I used muzzy's for years with excellent results...and I'm sure the G5's would be good as well. I now use Magnus Stingers with great results as well. Of the dozens of deer I've shot with a bow - ALL have left decent blood trails if I hit them where I'm supposed to, regardless of the head. I know alot of guys that shoot Muzzy's and haven't heard very many people talk about penetration issues or bloodtrail issues on solid hits with Muzzy's. Don't know anyone personally that shoots the G5's, so I can't comment there.
