It's not necessarily what shoots best for someone else as what shoots best for you. O0

That being said, I know quite a few people have had good luck with Rage broadheads.  You may want to check into Slick Tricks and then there's the good old stand by of Muzzy and Thunderhead. O0

I have been a Thunderhead guy for a long time......I just made the switch this year to Rage.......I made my first kill this weekend and will NEVER shoot anything else  O0.....Just my opinion

Big58Cal you got a point. Im just curious does it matter the actual length of the broadhead and does a 4 blade throw off an arrow with three fletches? That might be a stupid question but you never know

I don't think the actual 'length' matters as much as the 'width' (in bowhunting at least  :wink: ).  Really wide bladed broadheads will windplane quite a bit.  That's why expandables, with little to no exposed blade, are so accurate.

As for the 3 vs. 4 blade, I really couldn't tell you if it makes a difference.  I shot 4 blade Wasp broadheads the first year I bowhunted, but after that I shot 3 blade Thunderhead 125's.  This year, I'm shooting 3 blade Excalibur Boltcutters.  I know several people that get excellent accuracy from 4 blade heads, I just really don't have any experience with them.

If you're short on funds, you should be able to find some old Thunderheads or Muzzy broadheads in a Bargain Bin somewhere.  They shouldn't cost that much and are really good heads, having been put through the wringer for years.  O0

My dad shoots muzzy's and lives by them. Before i bought my new bow I shot Kolpin three blades, probably never heard of em haha. I went from the ol Bear Whitetail Classic to the Lights Out. I thought it was time for an upgrade. I just dont know what would be the most accurate to my setup. :-\

if thats the case check out Slick Tricks they haven't been around as long as Thunderheads or Muzzy but are a great broad head.

Nah, in cases like this where you're trying to help someone else out, they're OK.  Or if you find something interesting, they're OK.  Of course, sites with nudity should be sent to the mods first to make sure that they're appropriate.  :roll: O0 :twisted:

It's when someone starts advertising their own business on here, without first checking it out with GP, that we have a problem with.  O0  :knuppel2  :knuppel2
