Broadhead recommendations?

I will be shooting an older model Barnett, a Ranger II. It is a 150# recurve, 10" power stroke, shooting 16" Easton XX75 2216's. I am hunting medium sized whitetail. I much prefer fixed blades. Thanks!

Muzzy or Slick Trick

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.

Re: Broadhead recommendations?

I would try a cut on impact type head. The Slick Trick Razortrick should work well. The Slick Trick Standards should work well too. For a true fixed blade you can try the G5 Montec. They fly really well and are easy to sharpen.

Re: Broadhead recommendations?

Are the cut-on-impact heads better than the chisel type (Slick Trick Standard) in medium sized game? I don't need to shatter elk shoulders but would like to be sure that if it DOES hit bone it won't be a problem. Plus I want as close to field point POI as possible of course.

Re: Broadhead recommendations?

I would opt for a cut on contact fixed blade. With the short power stroke of your bow, I would feel better with a tip that is cutting from the get go. G5 Montec or similar.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Broadhead recommendations?

I went out and read several dozen reviews of the G5 Montec and liked what I was hearing. I have a set of 125 grain b-heads and set of practice b-heads on the way.

Re: Broadhead recommendations?

I think you will be very happy with the G5 Montec. Let us know how it does.
