What mechanical broad head shoots the truest to a field tip, and which one is your favorite?

I don't use mechanical anymore. Since the blades come out when it hits an animal I don't think the penetration power is as good. Don't think they can brake bone.

I have shot mechanical for years, Spitfire. Never had an issue. Great arrow flight, most have been complete pass thru, and good blood trails. I have shot two Kansas bucks that field dressed 240 and the other wasn't weighed, but was bigger.

It comes down to shot placement and angles. A broadhead isn't going to make up for a poor shot or poor decision.

Granted, there are a few I have tried over the years and have no confidence in them and would never recommend.

Not all heads are equal goes for mech and fixed.

I personally think the late ulmer edge is the most robust mech head ever made.


I think penetration with any head has more factors to it then blades opening. Cutting diameter, sharpness, blade angle etc.

We outlawed fixed heads this year. Tired of the long tacking jobs with little to no blood, poor arrow flight and small cutting diameters.

Grim Reaper makes some very good heads. No rubber bands to fool with and I have never seen one not open. Their Fatal Steel heads fly perfect to your field points. The 2 inch cutters make huge holes in deer and usually drop them within sight.

Rage two blade can't tell a difference between them and my field points never lost a deer I have shot with one. Do prefer fixed blade for pigs though.

to many are worried about a pass through when 6inches of penetration max is all you need... and the entry/exit wounds mechanicals make are second to none with blood trails... last 5 animals iv shot with mechanicals went less than 50yrds.. shot a big pig that went literally 5 steps.. now I will say I shoot whatevers cheapest at pigs.. and fixed are good and cheap and usually will take a few more hits... still dosnt outweigh the plusses for deer hunting though
