    stick w/ cut on contacts like muzzy. though he could use them... mechanicals need alittle more kinetic energy to make sure they open all the time. and if you hit bone at 45 lbs. do you have enough oomph.. to pass through bone and try to open a broad head? I got my son to stick with muzzy's till he can shoot 60lbs. just imo.

    ummm...i dont know. its deciveing. i shot my first deer with an over the top expandable and i didnt get a pass threw but it was out the other end. and that was with 45lbs at 25 yards. i would get him rages but dont expect pass threws. because of rages they arnt really and expandable...(you kno what i mean)..give it a try.

    Fixed Blades

    Until you get in the upper speed range 240+ fixed blades are the way to go. You shouldn't notice any difference in flight between broadheads and field points at lower speeds. Stick with fixed for a couple more years.

    what about Tekin 2? The blades do not swing out. They slide back and out.

    I shoot tekans and they work great, Rage are the same kinda deal. I would just stick with fixed until you get at least in the 55-60lb range, depending on draw length.
