Broadhead suggestions for high speed crossbows

Ive read that mechanical broadheads are recommended for high speed crossbows, for better accuracy. Any recommendations? Recently bought Ten point nitro X and ten point highly recommends Nap Slingblade after testing many leading broadheads in several categories. I trust them, just curious to hear opinions from other hunters and their experiences...

My neighbor shoots slick trick mags from his 10 point, they fly like darts.

I shoot Rage Crossbow X 125gr. heads out of my Scorpyd. They shoot well out to 50yds. I've never tried shooting them farther than that.

I shoot Rage Hypodermic blades for crossbows out of my Tenpoint crossbow and have had good success.

If you're shooting the Nitro X package arrows (CenterPunch) that combination is shooting around 415 FPS. Once you get over 400 FPS fixed blade broadheads get very difficult to achieve the same POI as field points. Most any of the popular brand expandables will work well out of your bow. They will also produce a wider cut and better blood trails than a fixed blade head.

The 125g rage crossbow X broadhead sounds interesting. I used rage broadheads on my last ten point but I thought the steal blade was little thin/flimsy. Worked well but it still bothered me.

Yes, I do use the Evo-tech arrows and 415 fps is what I've read out of the Nitro (although my scope settings suggest 425fps). Glad to hear that the rages and other leading mechanicals will also work well. I bought the sling blades (what ten point recommended) as they were so cheap and I was curious. I really like that they don't have a collar- the design of broadhead prevents any expanding in flight. Just hesitant as not many people mentioned using these nap slingblades in another related post.

I always had good results with NAP. Currently using aluminum 2219 XX75 bolts with the 100gr mechanical broad head. Good to 50 yards off a steady rest, same POI with either target tip or broadhead. No complaints. 305fps (chronographed) Barnett C5 Wildcat

Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!

Is there an expandable head that you can practice with? Do the mechanicals really fly the same as the field points?

I am currently using fixed three blade heads out of my crossbow but would maybe switch to an expandable if I thought I could get one that was reliable and I could test it to make sure my crossbow shot it were I aimed it.
