Re: Effect of Crossbow Speed on Older broadheads
My first crossbow shot 350 fps and I wasn't happy with how my current selection of broadheads were shooting. Thought it was the bow at first but I bought some short ferrule Wasp SSTs and it was game one. I had older Muzzys and Razorbacks but also cheap crossbow arrows.
I think alot of it has to do with the tighter tolerances of today's broadheads and a emphasis on higher foc with crossbow arrows. I am finding that many of today's head shoot pretty darn well in all of my bows. With that said, short ferrules fixed blades head or the swept wing style fly exceptionally well. Many mechanicals do as well. Bump that foc up and many broadheads will fly pretty well in crossbows.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
