:crazy: Fixed vs exspandables? Im pretty much an old school kind of guy. I perfer the Montec 100gr. by G5 fixed . This high effiecent balanced broadhead is machined from 6061 stainless steel all in one piece system , with todays bows exceeding 300fps, these machines demand high proformance from todays broadheads to hold up on impact where exspandables can fail at impact...face it ' how sad would it be to potentionally lose a nice buck from bad penertation or to find a blade broke off in your steak ,so think about a good fixed one piece system . If your lacking accuracy just practice more................

i use easton carbonaeros excel arrows 3 vane,plastic, with 100 grain 2blade nugent braodhead by muzzy.Shhoting out of a mathews MQ32 62 # draw.Go to you archery pro shop,hopefully he has a range and have him measure your draw length and have cut the arrows to size,He can also make some recomondations,ask for 3 different ones.This way they dont push 1 item. Thats my opinion

I shot Thunderhead 100's for years. I have now converted to the Muzzy's. Harley is right on the Montec's if you do not mind spending the extra money. The 1 pc broadhead holds a better edge when resharpened. The 1 pc design, using the general law physics, would suggest a balanced and higher reliability broadhead. They run about $9-10 per broadhead. All other broadheads are about $5-6 ea.

Good point on the what if's. There is no room at the inn for any risk variables in the world of bow hunting as it is such a short range weapon with limited opportunities.

I have been using muzzys for years. the 4 blade type as I believe they stand up better than the 3 blade design. I have been interested in trying out the montecs though. just cant get past the expense though.

I always hear more bad stories about Mechanicals than I do Fixed!
Go Muzzy and leave your worries behind... :wink:

I have used Thunderheads 100 for a longtime.This year however I purchased the Tru Fire Switchblade broadheads they also are very expensive.But I still had a few Thunderheads left so I carried both in my quiver.So when it came time to shoot my buck,I could not risk it,I used the Thunderheads,the buck did not go more than 40 yards.I want to trust the mechanical broadheads,but its tough for me to do.I also use the Gold Tip Pro arrows with 3 inch feathers.
