100 Grain G5 Striker 3 blade. Flies true and is nasty on impact. Unscrew your field points and throw them on. Never move a pin. Just a great broadhead. I shoot out to 80 with them. 350 gr carbon maxima, blazer veins.

Re: what is your favorite LR broadhead?

I would suggest trying more than one broadhead to meet your needs. The engineers at PSE archery have explained that when shooting long distances of 50 to 100 yards, the heavier a broadhead is the more it magnifies flight problems. This means that unless you are perfectly paper tuned with your arrows a heavy head will cause more flight anomalies.

For deer hunting a 100 grain head is usually more than sufficient. Non mechanical heads generally have less that can go wrong on impact or penetrating bone.

100 grain 3 blade Muzzy's have worked fine for me. On my current bow setup, very similar point of impact to 100 yards as my field points.

I use a 1 piece machined broadhead 100 grain G5 Montec. I get them to fly like my field points. They are durable and blow through bone. I just clean them spin test and sharpen them after a kill.

I also shoot a 1 piece machined Teflon coated Woodsman Elite in 150 grains.

They fly great and are durable as well. I will shoot them out of my PSE Tac this season.

Re: what is your favorite LR broadhead?

No matter what anybody says, if you can get a broadhead to fly accurately for you and you like it, then you can use it.

These crossbows produce so much kinetic energy on impact that they almost always blow through an animal even if it's all the way through from fron to back. The length of the deer as opposed to going through side to side.

I've seen arrows from these crossbows go straight through a 2" x 4" from the 4" side, so I'd say they'll probably blow through just about anything on 4 legs.
