broadheads

Been seeing lots of adds for crossbow broadheads. Is there really any difference or just a selling gimmick?

Re: broadheads

Some are different and some are not. Some of the mechanicals have a stiffer retention mechanism than the regular version. I think a lot of them are the same though.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Re: broadheads

Some of no different than the regular heads. Others are. Depends on the specific head.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: broadheads

swore of mechanical's. I prefer the fixed blades

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Re: broadheads

if you want to shoot mechanicals you want the ones made for crossbows, if your shooting fixed blades you can shoot any thing you want.
