On four blades make sure the cutting surface is at least 1-1/16". I prefer 3 blades because they cut more of an oval shaped hole whereas the 4 blades seem to make a nice cross which could tend to close up easier especially in cold temps.

NAP 3 blade spitfires, you don't need a bloodtrail when you watch them fall.

I will add to this again & say the best broadhead is the one that works for you & you are confident with. It took me a few tries to get the ones I like the rage were a little expensive at the time but most good expandables now are in the same price range I have shot Muzzy four blades & I would buy them in a heartbeat if I shot fixed blades I personally like expandables it is what I feel shoots the best for me & I will not shoot anything other then the rage untill they let me down I have tried Nap, trophy ridge & wasp & for me I was not impressed
It is hard when there are so many different broadheads on the market fixed, expandables, chisel tips, cut on contact, 2 blade, 3blade , 4 blade rear deploying it is just endless & can make a new to archery persons head explode
best advise I could give is narrow your search down to what type of broadhead YOU want & try them be prepared to spend some money testing them. another good point ifyou have some archery buddies try theirs out my group all saw what my broadheads will do & now they have switched so we all shoot the same Nice if you have an issue (can always borrow one) Time to stop ranting Good Luck on what ever you decide

Muzzy and two blade rage shoot best out of my Hoyt. Don't settle on hype on broad heads, it may take you a few different try's to get what your bow likes that's the most important.

i shoot with rocket ultimate. they are small fixed blades. however im very happy with it. replacement blades are easily found and quite cheap. however its major problem is that if you have shot an animal that goes in the bush after the shot, it is very hard to follow the blood trails as there is not many blood dropping cause the cut closes imadiatly after the broad head passes the skin.
i used to have a broadhead that i bought on ebay 3 years ago. i cant remember its model but it was a carbon express or element i think and that was my best broadhead unfortunately i cant find them anymore.

I like Rage 3 blades the best but I dont think they are good for all hunters.I think you need a arrow with height and 300fps or faster to insure a good exit wound.Makes for a easier tracking job
