Best Buck Broadheads

Two Pro-shop owners weigh in on the ideal broadhead, shaft, vanes, and nock to use on whiteteails

**THE PRO: **Shane Hyme Fairfield Outdoors, Lancaster, Ohio (740-653-2697)

BROADHEAD
Hyme claims the three-bladed Rage SlipCam Expandable (1) broadhead is deadly on game. "Anyone can install it and get perfect flight."

SHAFT
"I recommend Gold Tip Pro Hunter arrows. These top-quality shafts cost $2 to $3 less than comparable arrows."

VANES
Hyme uses three Predator Duravanes from Norway Industries. "These 2-inch vanes reduce wind resistance, and the flexible bases hug the shaft and really stay put."

NOCK
"I use standard nocks for most arrows, but for low-light hunting, I rig a few with Lumenoks, which light up on release."

**THE PRO: **Ron Gehrke Ace Sportsland, La Crosse, Wis. (608-788-9950; aceoflacrosse.com)

BROADHEAD
Gehrke prefers the reliability of a fixed-blade head. He uses the 100-grain Wasp Hammer SST. "It shoots straight, hits hard, and isn't spendy."

SHAFT
"I love the Carbon Express Maxima. The weight-forward shaft gives you better arrow flight and great penetration."

VANES
Here's a twist on a modern arrow: "I like 5-inch, parabolic turkey feathers with a full helical twist," Gehrke says. "I want that baby spinning fast for optimum arrow flight."

NOCK
Gehrke rigs all his arrows with Lumenoks. "They're great in low light. Plus, they reveal subtle flaws in arrow flight."
