Default fixed blade broadheads

Just purchased a Mathews Outback last week and looking to find a good fixed blade broadhead that flies straight. I was looking at the NAP Nitron, NAP Crossfire or Viper Venom, any suggestions or experience in the flight of these broadheads?
I shoot 65lb, Beaman ICS Hunter 400 carbon arrows 100gr and use whisker bisket.

I had my heart set on the crossfire and I could not get them to fly right. I went back to the proshop and we tried 6 different heads. Everyone of the other head flew right with my field points. The crossfires were hitting about 7 inches low at 20 yards. We spent over an hour trying different things and he finally just took the crossfires back. He contacted NAP about it 3 times but they never returned his calls. I have always been a NAP fan. I used thurderheads until this year. I just wanted to try something new and smaller. I have not heard of anyone else having this problem but then again I haven't checked into it much.

Crossfires drop like rocks, cause of those spin tab things I think. I don't know about the other two. But if you want a sweet shooter, go with a Montec or I hear Sonics shoot great.

Magnus Stingers are worth a look!

I tried several, I decided on the magnus stinger as it impacted right with the field tips and mechanicals without much additional tuning to what I had.

So when I'm on the ground I shoot those. Still when up the tree I use a mechanical.

both fly great for me..

I tried the NAP Nitron this week and I'm happy with them. I'll be using them this year. Flew just like my field tips.

I have Muzzy, GFK Hornet and some Crimson Talon fixed blade heads. I usually hunt with the Muzzy's but I'd be just as comfortable with either of the other two. (especially the GFK)

I just love the montec's I shoot a ICS Venture 500 with a 100 grain tip. There is no difference between my field tips and the montecs. Appsolutely amazing broadheads.

The Viper Veneoms fly straight and stable and they blew huge holes in my target...if you get them use foam targets to push them through....
