How are they dif. from the regular broadheads? I have been using normal broadheads with my crossbow and they shoot good but talking to a local sporting goods guy ive been doin it all wrong? Is there that much of a dif? I bought bass pro brand broadheads on sale for $14 bucks per 3 and they had no trouble killing deer like the $40 crossbow broadheads.

I'm no expert on this issue, but it appears a little extra head weight is beneficial with the shorter crossbow arrows (bolts). Have just noticed that most of the so-called "crossbow" broadheads are heavier (like 150 grains) and the customer feedback suggests they are advantageous over lighter heads.

I like the Slick Tricks. 125 grains. I believe, notice believe, that 150 grains would put too much weight on the front end of the arrow.

I use 150 gr heads in my crossbow. Slick Trick just came out with a 150 gr. crossbow head.

I wondered if there was a difference between broadheads for crossbows and those for verticle bows. So i bought a pkg of 3 of each at 125 grains and shot at The Block crossbow target. I shot at 10, 20, 30 and 40 yard distances.
Guess the result?
Exactly the same depth of penetration and exact same accuracy.
I believe the 'crossbow broadhead' is marketing hype to cash in on the tidal wave of new crossbow hunters who may not know any better.
As with most things in life...follow the money.
