    I have used both fixed and mechanicals. Now I only use Rocky Mountain
    Snypers and Tekan IIs. To me, shot placement is number 1, thus, the decision was easy. I think that certain mechanicals can be problematic, thus, to avoid cartwheeling on shots, I only use mechanical that cam-out from the bottom like the heads mentioned above.

    I use the Muzzy 100 cut on contact blades. Works great so far. I chose these since I was ony shooting 43 pounds, not enough to guarantee opening a mechanical. I shot my do this year with no problem. The only thing I have noticed is that you have to completely re-sight your bow for broadheads and my brother in law was shooting Mechanicals so there was much less adjustment needed. My poundage will be much more this hunting season but I still plan on the cut on contact broadheads.

    I have been using the Grim Reapers for 5 years and never had one fail and never had A deer go more than 30 Yards. This year I was going to try the slick tricks as A backup but never took them out of the quiver. When I shot the Slick tricks they shot exactly like my grim reapers and my field points.

    Montec G5's they fly like a dart, I was able to just screw them in, throw out a few test shots and I was ready to hunt

    Talking Muzzy

    I like the muzzy 4 blade heads.I've never had a failure due to my broadheads,had a couple due to the shooter .With fixed blade heads all you have to do is hit the spot.With mechs. you are counting on moving part functioning properly.I'm not saying that mechs. don't work,just too many variables.Fixed blade heads CUT every time....

    If it ain't broke,don't fix it....

    Default Fixed for me

    I have been using Muzzy 125 3-blades for about the past 7 years and they have performed great. The way I see it is if it ain't broke don't fix it. So until I start having troubles I'll stick with them. Whatever you have confidence with is what you should use.

    Smile Crimson Talon

    I plan on giving the Crimson Talon a try this year. They were recommended in Outdoor Life. My Archery Dealer said many of his customers have tried them and all liked them. (kinda neat looking too).

    Default expandables

    I have used Rocket miniblasters for years. 75gr. I don't always get a clean pass but they always proved a mammouth exit hole with 1 3/4" cutting diameter.
