I think you'll find the same here. Each has there advantages/disavantages. Find a broadhead that shoots well from your setup, one you're confident with, and you're good to go.

******Have a good one!******

Re: fixxed or mechanical broadheads ??

I've used the Crimsom Talon fixed, 2 Blade Rage and this year I'm trying NAP 3 blade that expade. Over all I liked the rage but don't like the o rings, blades constantly come out from the o ring while in ur quiver from brush hitting them. I think it's all about preference.

Get a candle and drip a teenie tiny drop of candle wax where the blade meets the o-ring on both sides. That helps with them not opening in the quiver and does not effect it on flight or impact.

Fixed if it shoots accurate there is nothing to go wrong sight in the arrow with the broadhead then put in new blades when done JMO

I prefer fixed as there is less that can go wrong. Most crossbows will shoot a variety of fixed heads well. The broadhead is the last thing I want to worry about.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I recommend fixed broadheads, why risk having mechanical issues on the shot of a lifetime.
