Broadheads

Can you use any type of broadheads for a crossbow?

Pretty much with the exception of the big turkey guillotene type heads that will hit the foot stirrup. Some mechanicals will open at the shot because of the very short acceleration stroke of a crossbow.

As with any bow, some bows like certain heads. If you find one that flys well, you are good to go.

I truly believe that just about all modern broadheads are high quality with low failure rates. Really comes down to shot placement and arrow flight in your bow.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Broadheads

I like G5 Strikers, G5 Montecs, Wasp Crossbow Boss, Wac'um, Tru-Fire T1's and Slick Tricks. These were the best fliers in the testing that I have done so far. The most consistent broadhead in the group would probably be the G5 Striker. I also like the Wasp Jak-Hammer for a mechanical, just be sure to put enough rubber bands on them so that they don't open in flight.

Re: Broadheads

I have. They are not the best broadhead I tried, but they were far from the bottom of the list. You will probably have to "tweak" the tip to spin straight. Once they spin test true, they fly good.

Re: Broadheads

I just switched over from field points to broadheads on Saturday. I could stack thunderheads just as good as field points. Shot out to 30yds, about a 1" group. Strange thing is they did shoot just left of where the field points hit and that happens on my compound as well?
