Broadhead choice

I'm debating on which broadhead to go with. I test Ramcat and Muzzy Trocar HB. They both shoot about the same The Ramcat might be a hair more accurate and I got 1" more penetration but, the Muzzy has 4 blades compared to the Ramcat 3 blade. Just wondering if you would rather have the extra punch or the extra cutting edge?

Re: Broadhead choice

3 blades are plenty. Ramcats put a pretty nasty hole in deer.

I'm old school and like the 3 blade Wasp. Have shot Wasp since 70.

Re: Broadhead choice

I would go with the broadhead giving you the best accuracy. If that is the Ram Cat broadhead--use it.
I use Slick Trick 125 grain Magnums currently. Over all ANY well constructed head that can be shot accurately, and will stay together, penetrates well will get the job done.
Best of luck to you.

Re: Broadhead choice

I recommend ramcat Bh as well. They are very effective.

Re: Broadhead choice

Some great FIXED blade heads that I know fly well:
Ram Cat
Slick Trick
Exodus
Tooth of the Arrow
Shuttle "T"
Montec
There are others, as with ANY style bow one must experiment with arrow, and broadheads. If the bow is tuned--all measurements on the bow being within the manufactures specs., and a little time one should have NO issue shooting today's broadheads. The biggest factor after accuracy is the broadhead must be sharp, and stay together as it passes through the vitals. If, and when that happens--you have a dead animal, and reasonable tracking.
Best of luck.

Re: Broadhead choice

If you (or anyone) do go with the Muzzy Trocar HB/HBX please provide a review. I "almost" bought some but could not find any information on them as they are new and no one had used them yet. So I went with the traditional Trocar for this year.

Re: Broadhead choice

I picked these up. http://www.newarchery.com/products/m...itfire-maxx-3/ Not a fan of mechanical but they are supposed to be extremely reliable i.e. not open up in flight and always open up on contact. First impression they look ok. But you can see where the blades were attached to the main piece of metal they stamped them from. No big deal though.
