what is your favorite LR broadhead?

Looking for the best lr broad head, fixed blade or mechanical? 100 or 125 grain? I know 125 would probably buck wind better

Re: what is your favorite LR broadhead?

It's going to depend more on how well your bow is tuned to your arrows and vice versa. If you're bow is tuned well and so are your arrows, technically you can shoot a bareshaft at 20yards and it will stick straight in the target...then you know you're getting optimum launch...

but to answer your question, I prefer small fixed blades like nap nitrons with quickspin speed hunters on the back...make sure your Front of Center is between 12-15% and you'll have better steering.

mechanicals I've used spitfires with good performance but I prefer the nitrons.

100 or 125 doesn't really matter as long as you can get your arrows to spine correctly and your FOC is in the right spot..

With my current hunting setup I can shoot out to 65yards and hold 2" groups or less with broadheads and usually stack my field tips together. no exaggeration.....

Thanks for the thorough answer. I think I will work on better tuning my bow and get some small fixed blades

Re: what is your favorite LR broadhead?

The best thing you can do IMO is practice with field tips really long......

I used to practice on the target out past 80 yards. Couldn't group there....but it made my 50 yd groups shrink to arrows touching.

@ 80 yds the pin was bigger than the feed bag I was using for a target
