Question by klee_2011@hotma.... Uploaded on December 03, 2009
idon't think it really matters..i bought the cheapest ones i could find and they work fine. I think if you buy high priced ones your jsut buying the name.
get thunderheads made by NAP they are a great broadhead and you can get six of them for under 40 bucks
it depends on what type of game you are pursuing. There are several top brands, and you can't go wrong with any of those, it comes down to personal preference. I prefer 100g Muzzy for whitetail, for hog, I prefer a heavier blade. Snuffer's are great too, then you have to think about rather or not you want to have threaded or the "glue" on...
Depends on how much money you plan on spending on your broadheads. I am using 125 grain muzzys and they are great and no that expensive.
i have NAP Blood runners. I LOVE THEM. massive blood trails.
Stay away from the mechanicals! 100 grain Muzzy's blows thru even at 50 yards and shoots at the same point of aim as my field tips.
I shoot thunderheads and personaly like them they fly pretty much dead on like my target heads. They are also very reasonably priced can ususally get 6 for under 30 bucks. there's alittle assembly required but its so simple even a caveman could do it.
Based on advise I got on this site, I went with the Muzzy 100 gr. and they did a great job on my kill this year. Even though I don't have much basis for comparison, I found them easy to become accurate with and priced reasonably.

I like muzzy and thunderheads.
RAGE!!! you will not be sorry. but the buck busters are pretty sweet too.
Muzzy 100 grain 3 blades...don't know if they're the best or not, but they work fine for me, have withstood the test of time, and you get 6 for the price of what most broadheads cost for 3.
muzzy all the way but i was given a broad head from a friend after i lost mine trying to shoot a goose (LEGALLY) and i tried a test shot with it and it shoots dead straight where ever i aim and it is also shagged and ripped through my target and it now has a hole in it.
Anything that's solid/fixed (one solid piece of steel is best) and cut on contact will be a very deadly and reliable broadhead. They will pass all the way through practically every time unless you hit a remarkable amount of bone, and will leave a good blood trail if you know where to put the arrow and can put it there every time.
Expandables/mechanicals are great until they fail and wound a deer, which WILL happen eventually if you use them.
I've seen plenty of deer shot well, but the silly mechanical head didn't do what it's supposed to.
If you make a good shot with a good fixed blade, it's game over every time. Can't say that for anything else.
I like G5 Montecs. A bit expensive, but they're so tough that you can usually kill multiple deer with just one if you resharpen it.
ONE piece G5 made in Michigan!
muzzy muzzy muzzy shoot through deer every time i personally have one muzzy that has killed at least 5 deer. they just keep on killing.
I use Maniac's from Aftershock. They fly exactly like my field points even at 70 plus yards. Not that I would shoot at an animal that far but it is good to know how they will fly at long ranges. They also leave a nice blood trail. I will not go with any other broad head. They have far out preformed any other broad head that I have shot by far.
if you like expandables. rage are excellent. otherwise, fixed i would go with muzzy
