When I first started hunting archery/crossbow, I was using expensive broadheads and mechanicals (NAP spitfires, Muzzy). But after harvesting many, many archery kills, I've gone to just using the cheapo WalMart Allen 100gr broadheads. I do touch up the razor edges to make sure they are sharp. But the $3 each broadheads do kill deer as cleanly and quickly as $15 each ones.
They are just as well balanced and just as sturdy.

At 40 yds or closer, I can't tell a difference in performance or quality.
