    I use the crossbow rage broadheads on whitetail unless its really thick or if I am elk hunting then I use g-5 fixed blade . Both 100 grain broadheads . I carry both in my quiver and they shoot the same on accuracy. I have had grate success with both broadheads.

    I personally see no difference in any of today's modern fixed or mechanical broadheads, find some on clearance and go with it. I would advise you shoot them first before you go to the field. I bought fake Chinese hypodermic's for $.78 a piece that I shoot

    I have shot 1 deer with my crossbow and got very little blood and never recovered the deer till months later. I was using a 3 blade fixed blade Muzzy 100 grain and would not suggest them nor will I ever shoot a Muzzy again.

    Same crossbow Tenpoint Titan TL4 , Muzzy here also except a 3 blade 125 grain, One blade straight up the other two at a slant. I want to know when I turn one loose it is going out there running and working.

    Let me know what you think of the fang. Been looking for my kids (and me) and seems to be a good price. My horton no longer groups.

    Come on Lonnie, open that wallet up and buy a ravin cross bow there just a couple thousand dollars lol. I shoot rage broad heads in my crossbow I got them on sale at TSC for $18 but when I run out of them I’m going to shoot the Chinese style rage broad heads.
