None of them.

If you don't know how then you should learn how to tune your bow and shoot a good strong fixed blade head.

If you do know how to tune your bow shoot a good strong fixed blade head.

A good fixed blade head like Slick Tricks are the way to go. If they don't fly right there are a lot of knowledgeable people here who would be happy to help out.

The Rocket Steelheads are an excellent low energy mechanical.They have been tested to penetrate as well as most 3 blade broadheads.


I do agree that you should tune your bow so fixed heads will fly true out of it,then choose a suitable head for your needs.

As far as mechanicals go I have shot Steelheads, Spitfires, Tekans, and Rage on deer. All of them performed well, but I always end up coming back to a fixed blade head. I like the k.i.s.s. approach. This year I am going to try the G5 Strikers. If you are dead set on shooting mechanicals, I would suggest this Tekans or the Rage heads.
