Horton vision

Using a Horton Vision with Carbon Bolts. Anyone have a recommendation for broadheads? About to buy some and wanted to ask the masses!

Re: Horton vision

I shoot a lot of crossbows and never met one that didn't like G5 Strikers, ABC Sonics, Razor Tricks, NAP Spitfires, Wasp SST and Wasp Jakhammers.

Have fun with the Vision.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Horton vision

I shoot G5 Strikers and 3 blade Muzzy's out of my Vision with very good results.

A very good list. I would add Tru-Fire T-1, G5 Montec and Wasp Crossbow Boss. Testing Shwackers at the moment and they seem like they should work great too.

I've been watching this post to see if anyone was going to list the 3-blade Muzzy. I've got a pile of 3-blade Muzzy's and this is what I was going to put on my new Havoc.

So...I was getting "Nervous" thinking I'd have to go away from something I've been using for years!!

Re: Horton vision

The ferrule of the Muzzy seems too soft. In the testing that I have done, the secret to getting them to fly good is bending the ferrule to get them to spin correctly. Once they do, you are all set to shoot them once into a target, then spin test and shoot again and so on. They were not worth the hassle for me.

Re: Horton vision

My vote is for the Ramcats. I've tried them out to fifty yards and they are hitting within a half inch of my field tips. They are sharp as heck. Penetration has been amazing from what I've tested. Took two Turkeys with them this spring. Both dropped within steps of where they were shot.Can't wait to see the results on deer

Not doubting your expertise, but I've never had an issue with the flying straight of a Muzzy 100gr. 3 blade, nor have I ever had any drawbacks of the ferrule's. If the Muzzy is installed and tightened properly, they do the job on tissue and bone just fine.
