What Broadhead do you use??

Guys,
Just doing a little mini survey of what broadhead, mechanical or fixed, you have or are now using especially the mechanicals, plus of course your bow etc.
Thanks,
daddus

Muzzy MX3 100gr, never use a three blade Rage, I've seen too many lost deer with what seemed like good hits. My buddy has now went to 2-blade Rage heads, we'll see.......

GFD2, not me that will using those 2-blades but my buddy is hooked on them. Here's the tale of the tape, I lost a nice buck to the Rage 3-blade head, which I only used 1 season, the shot looked great frontal mid body high/low. I found one of the blades missing from the head and the buck never went down finally loosing blood trail. My buddy has lost 3 deer to the 3-blade Rage, two of the deer were nice bucks. I have not lost a single deer since going to the muzzy MX3 heads. I have not have had a marginal hit to guage the Muzzy with but whatever works you should stick to. I have used Muzzy heads for many years now and for me they work!

I was kidding HM
I know you had bad luck with the 3 blades. Honestly I never used the 3 blades cause I didn't like the looks of them. I have shot a handful & crew total is around 10 deer using the Rage 2 blade furthest deer dropped was about 125 Yards average is 40-50 yards
I personally have not had one go over 75-100

Mechanicals fail too often, I use Muzzy's, they really are the best available !!!

Bruce shot mech's for a long time I never had one fail to deploy or fail in any other way guess it depends on what you buy
