    Hey I am looking into fixed blade broadheads and i am wondering what are some good broadheads. I shoot rages now and I love everything about them... except having to buy replacement blades after every deer I shoot. I use to shoot Montec G5's but I was struggling with blood trails (granted it was my first yearof hunting so i was probably not the best shot). Right now I am looking at the Carbon Express F15's and NAP Thunderheads. Any suggestions?

    I started shooting Ramcats this year and love them. Though one deer is all the blades can handle.

    Ramcats are very easy to shoot Broadhead. Generally easy to tune and have large cutting area. I have and would trust them on the largest game.

    If I was to shoot fixed blade Muzzy would be one of the first I would consider. They fly great.

    I've shot Slick Trick Magnums and currently use G5 Strikers. Both have steel ferrules which are tough as nails and replaceable blades. I always replace the blades after a kill and they are like brand new. Highly recommend either one.

    If you like Mechanical try NAP Shockwaves. They are tough as it gets for Mechanical. They get the job done too. I love them.

    NAP Thunderheads. Been around a long time and tough as nails. Solid aluminum body instead of hollow like some others. Resharpen after a kill and go again.

    The NAP Thunderhead Razor would be my fixed blade of choice. With any fixed blade broadhead that has replaceable blades you're always better off putting new blades on them after they've been shot versus resharpening on your own. The edge that comes on them from the factory is sharper than just about anything you can do with a stone or sharpening tool. Sharpness is what kills an animal quickly and in my opinion it's something that's severely underrated when it comes to broadheads.

    mate a few blokes here in Australia have been using VPA heads on everything from deer to water buffalo both two and three bladed. After seeing some pictures of the entry and exit wounds on the water buffalo i was convinced and bought a packet of the 2 blade unvented to have a go. I havent shot anything with them but fingers crossed they'll go alright

    All previously suggested fixed blades will do the trick for most thin skinned game but for a cut on contact head that will penetrate deep into a thick skinned, mud encrusted boar with a shoulder plate or similar animal you can't beat a Magnus Stinger two blade or similar head (Zwickey, etc.).

    Magnus stinger and buzzcuts are both good heads and super powerful.

    How are the blood trails out of thunderheads and mx-3's? Granted I know that depends on where you hit the animal but on average how are they?
