Just bought one and i like it a lot. The question i have is what style broadhead should i hunt with. I have a compound bow and i use the rage100 grain with it. Would a mechinacal blade or fixed blade be better to use out of this crossbow.

I have a Buckbuster 150 and also use the Slick Trick 100gr heads, they fly just like my field points.

I do believe that Arrowhead had a post on one of these threads advising not to use mechanicals out of a crossbow (I think because they come out of the bow so fast they may open prematurely and deflect the arrow possibly causing a partial dry fire).

We tested the Rage extensively out of the Tornado. It failed (deployed the blades) over 50% of the time. I wouldn't use it in the Tornado. The G5 Striker, Parker Crosspro 100 FX or the Grizz Trick seemed to work the best.

You will not hear me bad mouthing the slicks or the g-5's for that matter.. They are great. I just want the big giant hole that the gator's make, along with a blood trail a blind man could follow...

Tornado with slick tricks, needed to adjust 1.5" from field tips, likely did not even have to do that but I am nit picky when it comes to shooting at something for keeps.



My son got same results on his doe , both laying down and done within 20 yards...that is what we were striving for.

Being in the taxidermy business as well, I can say those Slicks make a huge nasty hole to repair. The Grizz Tricks seem to fly a little better than the regular Slicks in the Tornado. We are still testing, but I like what I'm seeing.

I REALLY like NAP Spitfire Pro 100's. Fly great, nasty hole, and easy blade replacement. Used them to harvest over 30 deer (Mont. Co. MD has unlimited doe harvest).

I like the 100 grain magnums cutting 1 1/8. I shoot GT's with brass inserts so 100 grains up front is plenty. If I were shooting arrows with aluminum inserts I would opt for 125's to get a bit more FOC.
