    I’m currently shooting rocket/trophy ridge steel head mechanical. Only have a couple left. I can’t find them anywhere. Anyone have any in 100 grain? If I can’t find any what does everyone recommend? Looking for a head that will shoot with my field points. Thank for the help.

    Rocket was the original company and they switched over and the name became trophy ridge. The name of the broad head is steel head or steel head xl. Thanks for the help guys.

    Lot of different Rocket brodheads on Ebay but don't see steel head. See Sidewinder, Meat seeker, hammer head, and Siphon. May be worth a look to see if they match up.

    Yeah they look to be completely discontinued. Not even any chinese knockoffs out there.

    I would recommend slicktrick fixed blades if you want to try something new. They have treated me great for 20 years.

    btw I bought a new pack of muzzy fixed blades on eBay for like $13 shipped.. they shot well. I could not resist at that price.

    Past couple of years I have been shooting Swhacker, went to Cabela's and bought some of the new blue ones that they have. You can move a set screw in the head that keeps the blades locked so you can practice with the actual head you'll be hunting with without dulling or damaging the blades. You can also use the yellow rubber bands or the new plug system, haven't tried it out yet. For me the accuracy and reliability from Swhacker has been great.

    Midway had a special on Muzzy 3 blade fixed heads, or clearance, $7.99/4 pack. Those have zipped through everything pretty well so far.
