With the technology and advancement put into today's equipment most every broadhead will fly field-point accurate if two things are met--the proper arrow is chosen and the bow is properly tuned. Broadhead selection is almost an after-thought as it is really what do you personally want out of the head......durability, ability to re-sharpen and re-use, wide cutting, fixed or mechanical. That being said......I really like and only recommend fixed blade heads such as G5 Strikers, Slick Tricks or the new VPA heads. By the way......welcome to the site!

Out of those you listed the montecs and slick tricks are what I would pick out of those three.

Welcome to the site.
The term "bone crushing" and archery do NOT go hand in hand.
With the light poundage of 55 ( I actually now shoot 53) I suggest you opt for staying away from the shoulder. I know guys who shoot upwards of 80 pounds with heavy arrows and lots of Kinetic energy. Even with heavy duty broadheads they still do not get through the ball sockets or humerus in a deer leg.

Any of the heads you mentioned are good choices.

I suggest you try a large expandable if you have not taken too many deer by bow. It may give you that extra little bit of cutting diameter needed to "put em down".

As 102 correctly pointed out, busting bone and archery should never be combined, even in the same sentence--we slice, we don't smash. \:\) I would stay away from the shoulder, especially mid to high shoulder and concentrate low in the pocket/crease behind it. Of the heads you listed, Montecs and SlickTricks would be my choice and they will get through rib bones just fine--just remember....aim small, miss small. I would stay as far away from mechanicals as i could with your low weight and light arrow--numerous low energy problems there.

I would listen to this ^^^^^ especially about the no mechanicals . I too suffer from the short draw length blues . Before I knew better , I shot mechanicals because that's what everyone else was shooting . But I quickly realized through a few mistakes that a mechanical doesn't work very well with my setup .

Archeryjuv great question, as a archery rookie there is a lot of good info here. I can't add any technical information or experience with either head, as last season was my first with a bow and I too used Muzzy. But after trying to find more info on the Montecs VS Slick Tricks it seems that Montecs are easier to get at your local stores. Dicks and Academy have the Montecs but neither have the Slick Tricks. Thanks to the rest for the info I believe I will give the Montecs a try this year.

Welcome to the site. As mentioned Slick Tricks, Muzzy, G5 Strikers or Montecs, and Magnus are great fixed blades.

Absolutely right. You need to shoot the RIGHT mechanical head to get adequate opening power and penetration.
But most of the time, on average size deer around Tennessee, especially during archery season, mechanicals work fine.

I do use a Magnus head myself. Mostly for economical reasons but they are great fixed blade heads.
