    Muzzys are more or less a standard in fixed blade broadheads. I have never heard anyone give them bad reviews. I use mechanicals myself but if I went to fixed blade Muzzy's would top the list because of their reputation for good arrow flight and associated success.

    Just some advice: Make sure your head weight matches your bow draw weight, draw length, arrow length and arrow spine. If in doubt go to a shop and ask them to check all that for you so you make sure your shooting the proper head weight/arrow spine with your setup. That can prevent possible tuning problems right off the bat without needing to spend a bunch of money later to fix mistakes in your setup.

    I am shooting NAP THUNDERHEAD 100gr. I shot them for the first time last week and I was shooting dead on. Anybody using this broadhead? I do not know about muzzy but the NAP heads are 6 to a pack. I was testing the rocket mechanicals at a target and the blades broke. Not good. If they break in the soft foam they will denifitely will break on bone. Hopefully I will get to pull back and get one this weekend using the NAP heads.

    Thunderheads are a great broadhead and up until last year they are all I shot. I killed alot of deer with them over the years. I got nothing bad to say about them at all I just wanted to try something different...

    For a fixed blade, Muzzy is one of the more proven in durability out there. For Mechanical I would have to go with the Rage. And I personally like the 2 blade. But whatever you use make sure it is the same grn weight that you practice with. If you are using 100 field tips then use 100 grn Broad Heads also. Good luck.

    I haven't been at this as long as most here. But I have used Muzzys each time I hunt. 4 shots at 4 deer and got 3 of them. The 4th was a bad shot .. my fault. Muzzys just plain ole work.

    I've used Thunderheads with good results. I used Atom Razor wire broadheads with good results. Both produced fair to heavy blood trails and put meat in my freezer and no unrecovered deer. This year I'm trying original Rocket steelhead's and Rage 2 blades. I'll post the results as they come in. I've got 4 taggs to fill this year.
