what broadheads to use?

I have a Barnett preditor and was looking for a good broadhead to use. I was told to get one made for crossbows but I don't know how true that is. I was leaning toward a slick trick or muzzy 3 blade. What are you guys using and how do you like them. I don't like mechanical ones either. Never have even on my compound. Thanks Zack

Re: what broadheads to use?

I too, like fixed blades. I haven't met a crossbow yet that didn't like Razor Tricks, G5 Strikers and American Broadhead Company Sonics. I would give the edge to the G5 Strikers.

As far as fixed blade heads, don't buy into the "crossbow" packaging. Some will weigh more to assist FOC. This would be a good choice if your arrows do not have brass inserts. Some "crossbow" packaging is just that, packaging. The head inside is the same, maybe a different color.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: what broadheads to use?

I tried Muzzys in my crossbow and didn't care for how they shot. They grouped ok, but not great. I am shooting the ABC bolt sonics and they shoot great for me. I know alot of people like the Tricks and Strikers as well with great success.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

I forgot to throow into the mix a much overlooked quality broadhead. The Wasp SSTs. Great heads that have flown well out of all of my bows.

Re: what broadheads to use?

Sounds like I'm going to pick up a set of G5's and razor's and see which one works best for my set up. Thanks for the input.

I use Muzzy 3 blades.I did have to adjust my scope up one inch to hit where field points did.Windage was dead on.I only shot them to 30 yards though.I hunt archery because its a close up sport.Have fun hope you get a big one this fall.
