what is the best 100gr big game broadhead? I dont care if it is mechanical or fixed but if it is fixed i would like it to fly true. And if you guys have any pics it would e greatly appreciated if you could post them so i could see some holes in the deer.

Thanks

I like Slick tricks and G5 Strikers for accurate flight , sharpness and strength . The key to a good bloodtrail is proper shot placement , and blade sharpness . No broadhead will make up for a bad shot .

There are lots of great ones out there. The 2 Radar mentioned are excellent heads. I've been using the NAP Nightmare heads this year with some great results. I've killed 4 does with them & none went over 60 yards.
Remember that none of them will fly well out of a bow that isn't in tune. Make sure your bow is in tune & your broadheads are spinning true before you start.

Here's a pic of the entry of one of my kills with the Nightmare this year.

The best broadhead is one that is razor sharp and is placed in the vitals of the animal being hunted. I have had good luck with Thunderhead 100 and Muzzy 4 blade 100. Everyone will have their own opinion of what is best but it really doesn't matter because you are the one shooting it. The flying true part has a lot to do with your bow being tuned correctly and your arrows being spined right for your set up.

I shoot 100gr. Grimm Reaper razorcuts. They fly great.

Check out the angled shot testing posted on youtube.

I shot fixed blades until changing to these mech's.

Best fixed blades that fly true. Out of a tuned bow
I have friends that rep these and have shot and used them all. Best flying Fixed Blades.


1. Shuttle T's
2. Slick Trick
3. Nap Nitron
4. Grim Reapor Hades


Never really used and expandable broadhead other than once....

Rage flys well

Phil said it all!

What can you afford? How much do you bowhunt? Are you a 2-3 shot per year kinda hunter, or a 10-20 shot kinda hunter?

You need to shoot the BIGGEST, Sharpest, most accurate head you can!

I bought the Blackouts at BassPro last year. The guys there told me they fly very well. I'd used Rocky Mountains for years until they sold me on the Blackouts. I didn't get out nearly as much during bow season as I usually do, but did nail a buck during the first week. I wasn't extremely impressed with the hole.

The darn things aren't that big at all.

I shot Rage and they are good.
Took me a while to get comfortable with anything but a fixed blade. Tried the Grimm Reaper razorcuts.and they are all I hunt with now.
They open up well on angled shots also. Youtube has some good vids of tests shooting.
Holes are amazing. They fly just as well as a fixed blade for me,but i don't shoot past 35 yds.,and I shoot a 60# bow.

I keep 1 fixed blade arrow in my quiver,just in case.

When did you shoot Rages LCU? You said this was your first year to bowhunt in some threads a few months ago?

I usually ask Radar and Rich their opinions...seriously.

I've used Muzzys, G5 Montecs and Slick Tricks.

I liked the Montecs as far as consistency and flight performance. I have no skill at sharpening anything though so I sent my Montecs to Double Drops. I used them for one season and killed three deer. They're great heads, but I was not comforable that I could get them as sharp as necessary.

I tried Muzzys and liked that I could replace the blades and always hunt with out of the box sharpness. They didn't seem as consistent in flight and the ferrules bent on a few of them. I killed 6 deer with them including a decent 8pt.

I switched to Slick Tricks before the '07 season. They fly great and have replaceable blades that come very sharp. I've killed several deer plus a caribou with STs and have zero complaints.

I've never shot a mechanical at an animal, but have few packs of hammerheads that I intend to use in turkey season. They work well on my block target \:D

G5 Strikers my #1 choice, will shoot same as field tips. Slick Tricks would be my second choice. Never used Shuttle T's but would like to try them. Have some Bass Pro Blackouts which are suppose to be like the Strikers but the blades are smaller and some were loose. To me the G5's are worth the $5 more. Have seen some muzzy points not fly good. Tried every thing on a friends bow and ended up moving his sights. The ones he had before flew fine.

I like Trophy Ridge 100 grain undertakers.They do lots of damage and fly good too.I have shot 3 deer with them this year and none of them went over 80 yards including a shoulder hit on a doe.

ID LIKE TO RETRACT MY PREVIOUS COMMENT. while muzzys have never failed me.....i have switched to RAGE 100 grain triple blade broad heads. after seeing several deer checked in at CK OUTFITTERS here where i live in woodlawn that have been killed with them. entry hole is huge and exit hole is huge.

a guy came in with pictures of a moose he shot with them. after the shot it only went 30 yards and plied up. that sold me right there.

I still use Rocky Mountain Snyper (2blade) I haven't found any reason to switch.(or spend $10 more on the rage, which is nearly the same broadhead)

Can't post pic here at work, but I've seen some gaping holes out of them.

All broadheads, heck even a target point will indeed kill a deer. I guess if you can afford these high priced broadheads these days and you are an accurate bowman well you will have success when the arrow is turned lose.

I use to shoot the old 3 blade satilites, then went to 3 blade 100 grain muzzy broadheads.

I look for a long life broadhead, I don't care to spend the money on newer versions, because at my range out to 30 yards the muzzy fixed broadhead perduces every year.

Now, I have shot and killed deer with the exspandible type broadheads (they were given to me to try) but after the kill the broadhead was unshootable.

But thats why they make so many broadheads because there are so many different opinions on whats the best, to each his on and good hunting!!

i wish i had taken pics of the holes my rockets made in the 2 deer i have shot this year. ANY broadhead will kill with a well placed shot but how do they do on marginal hits? the second deer was hit high and forward, going thru the off side shoulder and cutting it's throat( 8 yd. shot). the deer went 60 yds. or so with a massive bloodtrail. from the pics i have seen on here, i am not impressed by the rage at all.

JayMc,

Your experiences with Muzzy's resembles mine. I've been using the 100gr 3 blade for several years and have had excellent on game performance but only because I'm very, very, particular and spend a great deal of time testing and tuning them. It has got to the point that I will find at least 1 wobbler per pack anymore. I'm sorta attached to 'em so its gonna be hard to switch but its pretty frustrating to keep tossin brand new heads in the garbage.
I think the problem lies in the ferrule from the blade slots forward. When spin testing them the wobble is all in the tip. I keep shooting them because I know the ones in my quiver have been tested and fly like darts but I don't recommend them to people who I know aren't gonna spin test 'em.

I've been shooting Thunderheads since about 1990 and the only change I've made is from 125 grain to 85. No reason to change so I haven't.
