Just got my son a Killer Instinct Boss 405...shooting 100 grain points, what Broadheads would you guys suggest? I’m open to mechanical and fixed blade, looking what you all are having luck with

The old reliable thunderheads are great safe standby choice. I used slick tricks for a few years and while I liked them, I found them to not be as durable. I shy away from mechanicals, I never really trusted them and lost a deer or two, so I am a fixed head guy. I just think a head with movable parts allows more opportunity for things to go south.

I use 100 gr G5 Montecs now and I group much better and they are a tuff blade.
Shoot whatever grain weight flies best with your crossbow.

I've been shooting Rage 2 blade CrossbowX heads. They fly straight, and do the job, but not durable. They're a one and done head.

Good point. I have never been able to reuse any mechanical head after taking a deer. It just destroys them based upon the nature of their design. I have used Grim reapers, spitfires, Steelheads, and a few others.
They can be great for getting the job done, but as was stated above. They are good once only.

Anything will kill a deer. I have used blades that I got out out of a clearance bin for $6 for a pack of three and harvested 2 eight pointers and a 10 pointer and saw all three drop within 30 yards. I have used spitfires and thunder heads with a stick bow & crossbow with success.

Last season I bought Ravin xbow and used Rage broad heads on an 8 pointer at 26 yards on a 8 pointer that was broadside and the arrow went right thru the deer. The deer trotted off and then stood there looking back before it walked off and I never found the deer.

so you see although i spent over $40. On the rage broad heads I am sure they will kill a deer 🦌 but cheaper one will also. Best advise find ones that fly true.

You likely missed bone, a hard accomplishment once, let alone 3 times....lol
They are a great head though indeed.
