I have always used fixed broadheads , since I`m looking to get new ones this I was thinking of switching to expendable's. I`m not sure what I want to do. Which one do you prefer and why ?
The only way they fly better is if your bow is out of tune. Mechanicals have little wind resistance which is why they fly like field points. Fixed heads will fly just like a field point if your tuning is true. More damage on the animal is subjective, if i hit bone I want a fixed head. If i hit guts a mechanical will be better. I have zero desire to shoot a mechanical, personal preference.Not sure that I do. A buddy was telling me they fly better and they do more damage on the animal.

I know it happens to guys from time to time. I generally have the bow resting in the web of my hand between my thumb and index finger with my fingers extended. Not wrapped around the bow or gripping it the way some guys like to shoot. The thought of a razor sharp broad head passing a inch from my finger going over 300 FPS just doesn’t sit well with me.Funny you should mention the index finger steelhead125🙂
Totally understandable. Heck I still get the shakes from time to time if it’s a big one and I think I am going on my 23 or 24 season.:blush::blushThat happened the first time I ever shot at a deer with a bow, actually that was the first deer I ever shot at with any weapon. I was shaking so bad the arrow slipped off the rest as I released.
Once you get over 400fps, broadhead flight can get pretty darn interesting. The good thing is it comes with great factory arrows.I am pretty interested in this thread. I just got the call that my Tenpoint Nitro will be in this week and I can go pick it up. It will be an impressive step up in speed from what I am currently shooting and I've been wondering what kind of issues that I will get into as far as broadhead selection goes...I look forward to comments regarding broad heads traveling at those velocities...
