Broadheads, 3 or 4 blade?

Which do you prefer to use on your crossbow, and how many grains? A heavier broadhead will deliver more mass, but at less speed?

The spirit of our day is a soft acceptance of everything—except deep conviction in anything.

Re: Broadheads, 3 or 4 blade?

For me the question isn't how many blades, but rather how well does it fly. I place more importance on not having to change my scope. If you need to change your scope from field points to broadheads, then your broadheads aren't flying correctly in your bow.
To me the optimum flight is attained when the broadhead flys exactly as a field point.
We are getting that with the G5 Striker and the Red Hot Crosspro 100 FX, both in 100 grain.

Re: Broadheads, 3 or 4 blade?

I prefer 3 blades in 100grain broadheads. Muzzy are the
brand I use because they fly well and kill quickly off my
crossbow (Tenpoint).

I'd rather be fishing or hunting!

Re: Broadheads, 3 or 4 blade?

On my Parker I am shooting 4 blade Slick Tricks. On the Excalibur, 3 blade Strikers. I will shoot what shoots best out of my bow and those two are it for me.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
