Whats better a mechanical or fixed broadhead?

I shoot a muzzy 100 grain fixed broadhead. My problem is i have no penitration on my impacts. I have a hoyt ultra sport pulling back 70 lbs and have let off of 80%. What is the deal??

its all preference. i shoot wasp fixed blades, pretty much the same broadhead as the muzzys. shot a doe this season probably got only 10 inches of penetration from it but she still went down and bled out after about 40 or 50 yds

The only way a muzzy doesn't penetrate is hitting bone somewhere. It would take heavy bone to stop a fixed blade broadhead. I found out this year that Rage 3's aren't good on bone either as I hit a buck dead center in the shoulder and only got 4.5" of penetration and this was a 5 yd shot from a ladder stand.

$20 BIN and you won't have to renew until next year These are domains that I can still renew and push to your Godaddy accnuot. That means you won't have to renew them until next year. You don't have to pay me until you see them in your Godaddy accoun

I have been hunting a long time and have shot over 100 deer with a bow. In all of those deer only 2 did not pass through. Sounds to me like you need to give more thought to your shot placement and less to blaming the broad head.
If you are not aiming to your exit hole you are aiming wrong.
Muzzy's will blow through ribs like butter----- shoulders, spine and leg bones are another story for any broad head.

i've been trying different broadheads also. One typpe that I have quickly learned that i didnt were the "fixed" with the replacable blades. Have literally broke 5 different broadheads like this. Other than that I have still been experimenting

Stinger heads they are strong easy to sharpen and shoot great.
Its shot placement and keeping those blades sharp.

I have been using Muzzy 100s for the past several years. the buck I dropped last year should have been a pass through but stopped at the fletching. it was a great shot at 20 yds just behind the left shoulder. took both lungs and had one blade showing bone impact. I found the arrow 15' behind where the buck dropped. I figure he must have pulled it out just prior to expiring. all other shots have been as wmi said, like butter.
