    HELP! Best broad head for large animals? Elk, Moose, Bear?

    Looking to fuel the need to have equipment set up and ready for a Elk hunt and possibly a Moose hunt. My set up right now is a Mathews HTX No Cam,70#, 28.5in draw, 29in Gold tip hunter pros, blazer vanes, 7in wrap, lumanock, and tipped with 100gr head. I use Rage hypos for Deer. I figured I'd want a COC fix blade for Elk or Moose or do I? I've been doing research on NAP Hellrazors, Muzzy Phantoms, G5 Montec. Any advice or what has worked for you? I want to try to eliminate as many variables as possible.

    Thanks

    Muzzy phantoms. We used them for years. I think my father's personal record is 7 deer with the same phantom head (shoot sharpen and reuse) Deadly head and easy to re-sharpen.

    Dont sell out Slick Tricks. That would be a great option to look at. All steel. Flies great. Easy to sharpen.

    Sharp is key not large cutting diameter. Tough enough and heavy enough to get inside.

    Slick Trick for large game, Elk, Moose. I also shoot hypos for deer but when I have elk hunted I switch to slick tricks. I have shot several black bear with rages and have killed all of them with very short tracking jobs. Shot placement is the most important factor with any game and any broadhead.

    They're amazingly tough and fly great.

    I used Slick Trick Magnums on my elk hunt last year. I have been using them on deer for four years now. Killed a coyote with one last night; arrow buried almost to the fletchings in the ground, cleaned the dirt off and the head is ready to kill again. The broadheads hold up incredibly well.

    Fixed blade for certain. (many western states do not allow mechanicals)
    I love German Kinetics but they like Solids while great heads, are pricey.
    Slicks have taken many animals for me too.

    Should be fine using the Hypodermic, but if you are worried about penetration, go with the Hypodermic+P.

    I've been looking at Solids with the 1/2" bleeder but the price is what is making me really look at other options. I'm doing some research on Dirt NAP DRT right now, they look similar to the solids, I'm sure not near the quality. I'm sure any quality fix blade will do, But it is always worth a outside opinion.

    We shot some of the DRTs and didn't care for them, they also make tons of noise going down range.

    Anyone had luck on Carbon express XT 4 blade? I'm really try to talk myself out of Solids but i like the design for Elk or moose. Granted I've never hunted elk or moose yet so I'm very open to advice. Everyones input is being wrote down and Im doing research on them.
