I personally see no advantage to any mechanical but if you have them,why not use them?I killed one deer with the original 2 blade version years ago.The deer died fast and the head held up fine.They don't use rubber bands to keep the blades closed so I bet they'd work good out of a crossbow.I had two packs of them and gave them to my buddy to use out of his crossbow last year.He didn't kill anything so I can't tell you what his experiece was.I have little doubt that they'd do fine for your wife.
ok thanks. I dont have a target to shoot broadheads into so I wanted to get some other opinions before I let my wife try and kill a deer with them!
Spitfires tend to group close to field points but I would recommend you shoot the broadheads before headed to the field. That may mean buying a broadhead target as ultimately one does not know until your shoot them.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
Thats good advice to buy a broadhead target. I've shot several other fixed and mechanicals in crossbows and none shot like field points except the 100 Gr. Spitfires. Using them in my TRT Ultralight and the WR Invader. They shoot excellent on the Maxima Hunter arrows.
I have some extra 100gr. spitfire mech. broadheads laying around and wanted to use them for our new wicked ridge warrior. Has anyone attempted to shoot these out of a crossbow?
Actually, if you call and talk to TenPoint or read their forums, alot of the workers there will recommend 100 grain spitfires and their aluminum arrows. Alot of them swear by it, and its their product so I don't think you can go wrong using them.
