cant really go wrong with a fixed Muzzy, I wouldnt go more than 2blade on expandables...just too much can go wrong the more blades you get. I had good results with rage2 blades.

I use KillZones and have had great success with them. Or as others mentioned it's hard to go wrong with a fixed blade muzzy.

First thing first, if you've been happy with what you've been using so far, why switch? When it comes to new broadheads, there are a lot of good options out there to choose from. The best choice really depends on your setup and how you hunt. If you're using a newer bow with plenty of KE, you can use just about any broadhead you want, including those big mechanicals. If you're shooting an older bow or lower poundage, you'd be better off with a smaller mechanical or fixed head. If you hunt from a blind and plan to use the shoot-through mesh, a fixed head is the way to go. As you probably know, you need to have your bow well tuned. Other than that, it comes down to personal preference. When it comes to mechanicals, I really like Grim Reapers. They're well designed and pretty tough. Not to mention, they have a lot of options in terms of cutting diameter. For fixed broadheads, I've been using Magnus Stingers. They're tough, sharp and come with a no-questions-asked lifetime guarantee. I actually just got a pack of Dirtnap DRT's to test out, too.

Hell I havent been on here in about 5 years lol...well maybe not that long but seems like it...but I recommend 2 blade Rage. I have yet to have a deer go more than 15 yards on me while using Rage heads.

Default Slick Tricks 1 1/8 Magnum 100 grain

I tried too many heads just like a lot of guys. Liked Kill Zones, but gave them to my son. Have used Thunderheads, Muzzy's and Rages. I'm so old, I started with the Bear (with replaceable bleeder blades) heads. Now that I'm past all that messing around, I'm back to SLICK TRICKS. I get 3 or 4 deer most years and most die in sight. K.I.S.S.

I don't like expandables & after 3 decades of buying replacement blades for fixed heads like Razorback, Thunderhead & Rocket, I decided to take a chance last year & truly adhere to the K.I.S.S. method. So I bought a pack of Allen Beartooths at Wallyworld $20 for pack of 3. They shot great out of my TenPoint xbow & I went hunting with them. I was rewarded with a 220#, 120class 8pt @ 12yds. I watched him fall 45yds from where I hit him. What more can you ask for?

So this season I bought 3 more packs of the Allen's, 2 for my crossbows & 1 for my youngest sons Diamond bow. I prefer a cut on contact tip vs a chisel or punch style tip so thats why I chose the Beartooths. Other than being $15-$20 a pack cheaper than equivalent Montecs, I don't feel I'd gain anything by going to a "big name" head. Good flight & a VERY dead trophy is all the proof I need.

Switched from the mechanicals years ago and bought the 4 blade Muzzy 100gr. I liked the practice blades that come with the package, so I can shoot those all year and simply switch out to the hunting blades. I think I am one of the few people who like the smaller diameter heads. Tough to beat 6 broadheads for the price of most other manufacturers 3.
