What weight broadheads are you guys using? Im looking at a xbow for my son and Im not sure what to get. Ive used 100g Montecs in my vert bow and have had great success. Is 100 too light for a xbow?

Depends on your arrow. If your crossbow arrow has a aluminum insert up front, I like a heavier head to increase the front of center. 150 grains or so. If you arrow has the brass insert up front, 100 grains is ideal.

Many broadhead makers are producing heavier heads for non brass insert arrows.

They are the 10pt bolts with the brass inserts. Thanks for the quick response.
Excellent. 100 grains is perfect and many love the G5s. I get a bit better flight out of the G5 Strikers in crossbows.
