Something to bust bone.... Magnus stinger 2 blade. I haven't shot them but know someone who does and said they went through both shoulder blades of a buck last year.

I have been impressed so far with Ramcats, on both my compound and crossbow.

I like a fixed blade broadhead too! I was a big muzzy and thunderhead fan,but.... they started giving me trouble flying like a field point i shoot a pse dream season evo i am 15 years old 135lbs and pull 55lbs not a very big feller haha... but i want somthing with a chisel tip to bust bone i have heard ramcats,slicktrick,montecs ,but i have been looking at shuttle T locks you know anything about them? And Thanks for the welcome.

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 .

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.
