Mechanical Broadhead Recommendations Please

I'm going to try mechanical broadheads in my crossbow. I used to use NAP Spitfires with my compound and was happy with them. Would they be a good choice in 100 grain? I still have a few left for practicing so that would save me a few dollars.

Alot of people are using the spitfires with crossbows. The 100 grain should be fine in your arrows as long as they have the brass insert and the arrow/head combination would meet the minimum required by your crossbow manufacturer.

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

Yep. 100 grain NAP Spitfires. That's what I use.

Nothing wrong with 100 grain Spitfires. Probably the most popular broadhead in crossbows.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

We have had great success with the rage crossbow head in the 100 grain size.

+1 on the Spitfires, I've killed 2 deer in 2 years with them and they are devastating. 30yd recovery on both. I have both the regular and the crossbow 100grs and see no difference.

Re: Mechanical Broadhead Recommendations Please

After a ton of recommendations by my crossbow manufacturer, other forums and people with experience, I put some Spitfire Maxx in my quiver this year. They are probably the most "followed" mechanical broadhead

Some of the entry and exit hole photo's are incredible, I however have no personal experience with them yet.

I also have some of my ol faithful Sonic's in the quiver just in case too.
