    Correct Opening Mechanical - Killzone, Rage, G5 Havok, Spitfire DoubleCross, etc. The primary blades are fully deployed upon entry.

    Over The Top Mechanical - Spitfire, Grim Reaper, etc. The blades do not fully deploy until they are inside the animal.

    Standard Fixed Blade - Muzzy (original), Thunderhead, G5 Montec, HellRazor etc. A standard size "classic" type of fixed blade head.

    Micro Fixed Blade - Slick Trick, Ramcat, Exodus, Muzzy Trocar etc. The smaller generation of fixed blade heads that have shorter ferrules and steeper blade angles.

    Sorry guys - had browser issues with the first one and the poll didn't work. This should be better.

    Correct Opening Mechanical

    I took a buck with a Killzone last weekend, but have loaded the Spitfire Doublecross on the arrows for the rest of the season.

    IMHO, Slick Tricks have rendered all mechanical broad heads obsolete.

    I wanted to vote for two because I use both Exodus and Solid Legend. I am mainly using the Solids this year but I have a bunch of Exodus still to fall back on. But I picked standard fixed since Solids are on my arrows right now.

    I'd call it a correct opening mechanical. The blades are open on impact similar to the DoubleCross.

    Poll does not have the ability to select multiple options. In my quiver today, I have three. Montec, Slick Trick, and Rage.

    I've had great success with Swhacker broadheads but if you dont get a pass through the blood trail can be poor. My first non pass through was the buck I shot last year, perfect shot but I hit the offside shoulder and did not get a pass through. Buck tipped over 40 yards away but I always try and follow the blood trail after the shot and it was spotty at best.

    Sorry - you only get to pick one. So pick your favorite if you had to choose (which you do).

    Vertical. You know "crossguns" don't count.

    Standard fixed blade here. I have Montec G5's right now. We used Hellrazors up until this year when we couldn't find them in store.

    Why? Are you just indecisive, or is there a method to the madness.

    Over the top Wasp 2" 2 blade Wasp Jak-knife.

    I want two blades only for better penetration. 2" of cutting for more killing power and I don't want to front of my arrows trying to steer.

    For over 30 years I used 150 gr Bear Razor broadheads till the supply dried up. Now I use Magnus Snuffers SS 125 gr. Great pass through and warranty for damaged heads and easy to sharpen. Use them on recurve, compound and xbow.
