Angry need opinions on broadheads. Help!

So since I unloaded my quiver on the 5 shot doe the other day and lost 2 broadheads, I need to purchase some new ones. Anyone have any opinions on a good broadhead for a low poundage bow? I'm shooting 42 pounds and have a 23 inch draw. Yes I'm a wuss.

Opinions? Fixed blade? Mechanical? Help!

Oh and Im not planning on winging an arrow out any farther than 25 yard because I know I'm not shooting with as much speed/ kinetic energy as someone pulling back more weight and/ or has a longer draw length. I know my limits. Just thought id put that out there.

Personally, I think Muzzy broadheads are hands down the best broadhead on the market,
I've used too many others to try to mention them all but Muzzy's have never failed me and I'm comfortable suggesting them for you too.

If you're already using 100 grain broadheads, I would stick with that weight and use Muzzy's MX-3 blade



Good Luck

Thats one Ive been thinking about. I've heard a lot of good things about it. I've also been looking at the magnum stinger and rage 40ke.

plus they have a lifetime warranty--- if you bend one or it somehow becomes unshootable---- SEND IT BACK FOR BRAND NEW ONES.

I am a new Bow Hunter with more misses than Kills on my resume. I am actually 1-2 if I were keeping track. I have only shot to types of Broadhead some Carbon Express from Wal Mart and These Muzzy's which were recomended from my cousin. The deer i killed was cut big time i actuaully took a pic of the entrance wound ill put up in a bit for you. Good broad head flie smooth.

I use the Rage 2 blades & never had a failure till last night Yup missed a 6 pointer shot slightly low went under & drove a boulder head on don't really care what you are shooting they are made for deer guess I was looking for some yummy stone soup LOL Have had great luck with the Rage
I know a lot of complaints on the 3 blades? never shot them honestly I believe the furthest kill (noticed I said kill) went less then 75 yards

Just got back tonight from Michigan bow hunting. The Muzzy MX3 broadheads preformed perfectly. Both deer were dead on their feet after double lung shots. Just to note: My buddy using the Rage 3 blade, we tracked his several hours late at night, then got back on the trail the next morning to find the buck alive and had to dispatch him. The hit was very frontal tucked tight to the left leg angled down and hit the opposite leg low. This is the same hit that he lost a buck in PA last year. These are not perfect hits but do catch the front of the lung. This buck traveled 1/2 mile before we found it the next day. We did not push it but waited 1 hr to go look for it. The Muzzy hit deer crashed down at 25 yds and 60 yds. I tried the Rage heads before and they are not for me.
