    First post here....I scored my first crossbow kill this year with 138" nine pointer. My friend also used my crossbow to kill a 150" plus 10 pointer. While recovering both kills, the bolts all broke into pieces, even though they were complete pass throughs. I found both braodheads seperated from the shafts which snapped approx 1-2 inches below the vanes. Is this normal for these short shafts? I was using gold tips with 100 grain thundeheads.
    What is the best bolts on the market now? I was thinking if going with Carbon Express Maxima on my next purchase.
