Re: Broadhead recommendations
i'Ve used both fixed and mechanicals... killed deer with both. I was using Grim reapers. They worked good, and watched every deer I shot with them fall. There was that one thing however, in the back of my head that led me to change. "What if the broadhead doesn't open".... now, every deer i killed it opened. BUT, what if it doesn't? punch a double lung, and deer is dead regardless, but there will be little blood trail. I recently changed to a fixed blade "Exodus" and love them. they fly dead nutz accurate, as far as you can shoot, they shoot the same as field points, are SUPER sharp, and have a decent cutting dia for a broadhead. Last year was the first year i used them and killed 2 does, both dropped within site.
Honestly, so which is right for you? It's all what you're most confident with. I knew i could kill deer with the Grim reaper, but i lacked confidence in "would it open" as it was a mechanical. Fixed blade cuts no matter what. I suggest you get a few different brands, fixed and mechanical, and start shooting them. see what shoots best for you. Then go hunting and see what you feel most confident with.
