Default How many use Mechanical's How many use fixed

There have been alot of discussions about people's preference of broadheads. I am curious to what percentage use solid one piece fixed blades, replaceable razor fixed blade, Rear opening mechanicals and forward opening mechanicals. I am not trying to start another debate, just trying to figure out what most people prefer in regard to type of broadhead.
Thanks

Had good success with the 3-blade spitfire mechanicals in the past but switched to a 2-blade rage last season and lets put it this way...I will be shooting that same rage this year and many years to come.

I've used fixed blade (replaceable blade) heads since I started bowhunting years ago. Most recently I've used the G5 Strikers. This year I'm going to be using my first mechanical head... Rocket Steelheads.
