I purchased it from Wyvern Creations, where I bought my other 2 crossbows the last few years. I know that y'all have heard this question a hundred times but let me ask it again. I need a expandable broadhead that will impact like the field points. I mean...don't we all? I bought the package with Nap Spitfires and David (the owner) said that they act much like the field points. Cab I get some experience from you guys: I only have a bag target. But I can get another. I need to be able to see where my hunting tips are hitting. Can y'all shed some light on how I can accomplish this with such a powerful bow? My Safari Mag (I sold it) would NOT put field points with any other kind of hunting head, expandable or fixed. Especially fixed. A recipe for wounding deer is going into the woods with a hunting broadhead that is REPORTED BY OTHERS to fly to the same Point of Impacty as field points. Is 125 grain better than 100 grain with these bows?? Thanks. By the way, he said that he was selling the 350 and 380's FAST. Surely some of y'all bought one of the 380's and can holp a feller hunter out. Much obliged. kevin

Good heavens, this is a low traffic sub forum. I'll just have to figure it out for myself. I was hoping that the one or two StrikeZone 380 users would just be jumping up and down they're so eager to share with me the best broadhead target. Best carbon shafts, best broadheads, etc etc. LOL Just kidding. I really can't blame ya for not wanting to help me out since i have not posted in others threads much. I rekon I'm just all excited about having an X bow that MIGHT, and that's a mighty big MIGHT, be better than my Safari Mag 175.

Spitfires fly just like a fieldpoint, stick with them.

I was at wal mart about 15 minutes ago. The reason? I was about to buy another pack of Muzzy Crosskill 125's because at 25 yards they fly CLOSE to the way my 125 grain field points did. But at the last minute, I stuck them back on the rack. I said to myself: I am NOT starting this crap again this year!!!! I'll stick with the Spitfires. I then come home and read to stick with Spitfires. I'll accept this as a good sign.
Got my 380 in today. It comes with some Gold Tips Lazers that are rebranded with the Stryker name. They include 5 arrows and 5 100 grain field points and 3 NAP Spitfires. And then I read on all of the Crossbow forums that everyone is using 125 grain and heavier. I admit, my bow did NOT group the five arrows that came with it real bad or real good (with MY 125 gr field points). Tomorrow, after work I will start with what came in the box. The 100 grain stuff. All I ask is precision out to 40 yards. I will let them walk past that distance. Besides, 40 yards in the woods is a long way. Thanks for everyones reply.
When I got my Safari Mag, a couple of years ago, I started out on a wild venture of trying to find what worked best. I spent SO freaking much money on arrows, fixed broadheads, NAP Spitfires, etc etc. Broadhead targets. I have a Rhinehart target now. I figured that I would go ahead and make that investment on the front end.

I would think the 100 grain tips will do fine. That is what I shoot out of my crossbow that is supposed to shoot 345 fps. It groups really well, I had to quit shooting more than one arrow at a dot...

I don't use mechanicals. I use the G5 Striker from my SZ380. Love them.
