broad head choices??

Anyone using Grim Reaper expandable heads with their crossbow? Anyone have any other recommendations?

Re: broad head choices??

If you are stuck on expandables, the Wasp JackHammer and NAP Spitfire have many fans. Arrowhead is testing the new G5 T3 expandable now. I prefer fixed blade broadheads and a good starting point would be Slick Tricks, Griz Tricks and G5 Strikers.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Tested Grim Reapers in a Excalibur Vortex last summer. I'll never use them. When the blades deploy, they hit about 3 feet high at 30 yards. When they don't deploy, they are spot on.
Results of the G5 T3 testing will be in soon. I will say that this one looks promising.

Slick Tricks fly great out of my new Terminator.

I use 100 grains but my arrows have brass inserts. If your arrows have the standard aluminum inserts, consider moving up to 125 to increase the weight forward.

Re: broad head choices??

These broadheads threads are getting ridiculous. I think it's about time for a broadhead sticky thread. It's like asking a man what his favorite food is. You'll get a lot of different answers but all of them are good and will please you in the end. With that being said, I HIGHLY recommend the Wasp SST Boss 100 grain.

I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Too many stickies start to cover a page.I don't think many people read them either.

I'd rather reply to this question a hundred times, rather than see somebody spend $30 on broadheads that won't work in a crossbow. As we all learn more about crossbows and the manufacturers respond to it, the better the products will get.

Yes, Wasp gets overlooked. The SST killed my first crossbow buck and they did fly very well.
