100 gr Slick Trick mags, to get a flatter trajectory. Flies like my fieldpoint, sting very nastily.

I used them when I was shooting a compound and they flew great. I also used magnus stingers. What about rage 2 blade, would those work out of a x-bow?

Missle Spikes?? Heck I thought I was the only person who remembered those.:cheers2:

Last year I shot and killed a nice deer with a Bodkin BH and also with a very early Howard Hill broadhead.

Been shooting and tuning some arrows with the original Bear Razor heads. Might hunt with those just for old times memories.

After all the years of bowhunting I can honestly say that I never have found a broadhead that failed to kill the deer or other critter I was hunting. To me, the real key is only taking a high percentage of success shot and being able to hit extremely close to where you are aiming!

NAP 125 spitfires for me. I was skeptical of mechanicals until my Son convinced me to try the spitfires. 5 deer. No problems. Same POI as target points. (150# xbow)

although I havent had the time to shoot them yet I went with spitfires for my crossbow
I was pretty torn between the spitfires and slick tricks but chose the spitfires for a couple(and pretty small) reasons, the accuracy claims between the two seem to be just as good so that wasnt really a deciding factor,but the spitfires bigger cutting dia was.... I'm still going to pick up some slick tricks and test them out, so who knows whats going to be for sure, but as it stands now the broadheads I plan on using are my spitfires

I'll be using Zwickey Eskimo 2 blade BHs again this year. The're cheap ($3 each), fly better than I shoot, and you can't kill 'em, I've tried.

If I get to hunt with a x-bow this year I will be using 100 gr. spitfires on whitetails. If I am stuck trying to "kill" my morrell super duper target then it wil be 100 gr fieldpoints:D

You'll have to forgive my ignorance, not having shot Broadheads before. Do they make any differance to how the bolt flys? I've always assumed, perhaps wrongly that the blades would effect how true the bolt flys compared to field points.

It's purely a question out of interest as I've no need to use them myself (hunting being illegal here), although I am tempted to get a couple just for the experience of shooting them.
