Default Best broadheads?

Hello. I need some help on which type of broad heads to buy(mechanical or fixed). I don't want to spend much more than $25. Any suggestions or comments help.

I personally prefer fixed. I shoot RedHead Blackouts. On sale at Bass Pro for $19.00 pretty often, fly and cut as good as Slick Tricks (my 2nd choice), and replacement blades aren't unreasonably expensive. They do have a smaller cutting diameter than most broadheads out there today though. However, good shot placement is the main thing.

My boyfriend used Swhackers last year, and I'll be using them myself this year (being my first year as a bowhunter). Much better than his Rage broadheads he was using. However, this mechanical broadhead isn't cheap, although they have a limited time buy-one-get-one-free on their 3-packs for about $40.00. That's 6 broadheads for the price of 3 (on their website only), making it $20 a pack. These broadheads leave a massive bloodtrail and makes the deer easier to find. And the deer have never gone any further than about 50 yards. Some we found after 30. It would probably be the best bet for your money if you grab this sale quick. :) Happy hunting!

I hate to even mention it because you either love them or hate them
I for one have never had any issues the the Rage 2 blades
I have not had a deer go more then 70 yards using them

I think rage 2 or 3 blade are great mechanical broadheads little pricey though but they shoot great. On the other hand muzzy is a great choice of fixed blade just takes longer to tune them in.

Since we are talking about more pricey mechanicals I would say either rage two blade or Bloodrunner 2 blade. Either one leaves massive blood trails! i've had a few deer not even flinch when they were hit... they knew the score so they just laid down! They first doe I shot with a blood runner i pulled its heart out in two pieces. With blood runner be careful it you open your hand on your riser though. I ran one down the length of my finger once.... OUCH!

If it were me I would get a SIX pack of 4 blade muzzy broadheads because they are only around $30 and right now you could probably find them on sale for around you price range.
