Youth Crossbow broadheads

Hey Guys, my kid is 6 yrs old and lookin forward to his first deer season where he is pulling the trigger. His crossbow is a youth sized entry level model, and shoots about 240 fps...what kids of broadheads do you guys suggest? I shoot Rage, but heard I should stay with a fixed head due to slower speeds. Any help would be appreciated.

Ream Cats would be a good choice. They penetrate great. If you don't get a pass through shot, they will reverse and cut coming out. Both sides of the blades are sharpened.

My son is going to shoot 100 gr Thunderheads out of his Horton UL 175.

I thought about the new Rage xbow head, but I cant stomach the price.

Take a kid hunting, it's the future of our sport and the future is now!

Good choice to stick to fixed blades. I would go a step further and suggest a cut on contact style like the G5 Montecs, Slick Trick Razor Trick, American Broadhead Company Sonics. All are proven to fly great in crossbows.

The Ram Cats, G5 Strikers and Slick Tricks would be close seconds for me.

Good luck and thank you for taking the time to introduce our future to the sport of archery hunting.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

My old compound probably only shot around 230 or 240fps. I also used aluminum arrows and shot 125 grain broadheads with that set up. I had no problem killing deer using expandables. I shot steelheads 125 grain and rage two blade.
