Well I am finally entering the crossbow world. I will be picking up my new Ten Point Stealth Fx4 this week. It comes with 3 Ten Point arrows so I think that I am just going to buy 3 more matching arrows for now. I see that there are broadheads that claim to be made specifically for crossbows. I'm going to go out on a limb here and ask you all which broadheads you thinks are really good for crossbows. I've always been a fixed blade kind of person and my Muzzys have never failed me so it's going to be hard to get me away from Muzzys unless somehow I am convinced to go mechanical. I am not opposed to mechanicals but I have just never seen a reason to try to fix something that isn't broke.
One other question. Would my Muzzys that I have been shooting from my compound bow work with my crossbow.
Thanks to all for your input. I can't wait to get my bow in my hands this week.

I have set up many crossbows for friends. Like a fixed blade also. I have found in all broadheads that I tried the Striker G5 in 100gr or 125 gr is tuff to beat. Do a great job performance wise also. I would try your Muzzys also. They worked well also. On a crossbow bolt the biggest thing is the weight FOC (front of center) On the bolt. Just my two cents.
One thing about arrows is that you can buy custom arrows for about the same or cheaper than you can the factory arrows. Arrowhead on here makes some great arrows.
As far as broadheads there are several good broadheads on the market. I never had good luck with Muzzy's out of a crossbow even though I used them with a vertical bow. They didn't shoot horrible but they could have been better. I am using Swhacker broadheads and I like them alot. If you have some Muzzy's I would try them before spending money on other broadheads.
Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!
I much prefer fixed blades but have been gravitating towards mechanicals as speeds keep increasing.
As far as fixed blades, I believe the Ramcat is the best fixed on the market for relatively fast bows. It is a hybrid but still considered a fixed blade as nothing moves upon entry. I have had good success with G5 Strikers as well.
For mechanicals. I am shooting Swhackers now.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
