Iíve been using 3 blade Spitfires for over 20 years. Used them with X bow since 2009. I now buy the stiffer x-bow version they now make, to prevent in- flight opening. I like them because in over 40 deer I shot with them, I never found evidence of non deployment, had good blood trails, and never had a broken blade. A few were bent, but not broken.

Banett Crusher, or NAP Shockwave. Thats the 100 gr choices for me, my Xbow had the final say about what matched up best with the XX75 Xbow bolts.

I have tried a few different ones in my Excalibur but my favorite by far is the NAP spitfire XXX. The blades are very durable and always open when they are supposed to

I used Rage 2+" cut crossbow hypodermics this year.The entrance and exit wound were in a word very large.It hit the knee joint and the arrow almost bounced back out of the entrance hole.It sounded like hitting a tree with a sledgehammer.No damage and the blades appeared to be sharp enough to reuse but I would use a new one for another deer.I bought them on ebay for $20 shipped to my house.3 pack with a practice blade.They were around $50 at local stores and other online stores.If I can find more at that price I will buy them.They were not the Chinese knockoffs sold on there.

Rage 100 gr. hands down. There are 4 of us that hunt together all the time, all use 100 gr RAGE. Never lost a deer with this broadhead. even on a bad hit, always a lot of blood to track the animal and recover. On good placed shots, down in 40 yd or less. And not that we take a bad shot but sometimes it happens, stick you dont see or other uncontrolled reasons. ( 2 BLADE ) 2" cuts

It's to bad them Rage broadheads cost so much I've seen a lot of good reviews on them. I'm considering if it's worth the extra $15 to $20 for them and I suppose it is, unless I can find a nice deal like yours. I've used Scwhaker broadheads in the past but most times I had to sharpen them as they came dull right out of the package.
Also considering the NAP broadheads, in the past I've used NAP Thunderhead fixed blades with good results out of my compound bow.
