Re: Mechanical vs Fixed blade/ Replaceable blades
This has been pretty well beat up here, but since you're new (Welcome, by the way!!!), I'll bite...
I prefer fixed blades. I've been using 100 grain NAP Hellrazors for the past couple of years and really like them. I stopped using mechanicals (Rocket Mini-Blasters) after the first deer I shot with one in 1999, had the arrow twist on impact on a quartering away shot. Never felt comfortable with mechanicals after that. However, mechanical head technology has come a long way in the last 14 years. If I were to go mechanical, it would be some sort of rear deploying blades. You'll get many opinions here. Really it all comes down to your own experiences (good or bad) and your own preference.
