The Thunderhead has been re-vamped for this season with off-set serrated blades!

The Thunderhead Edge is leaving some awesome holes and bloodtrails!

If you can hit what you're aiming for, either one should do the trick. But I use mechanical (Rage) cause I need some insurance with my shots.

I personally like the fixed broadheads, I shoot the muzzy 100gr.

I used to shoot the Thunder Heads, they work flawlessly, and they are tough as nails!!!

But being the 'gadget guy' that I am I had to try the mechanicals. I have settled on the G5 Tekan II.

They also have worked flawlessly for me and tough as well.

Good shootin'

Wide cut Vortex or The Atom.

I once shot a coyote with the vortex and due to the angle and the wide cut the back side of the coyote had an exit wound about 8 inches long. Obviously it never took a step.

One doe I shot had a blood trail so heavy you couldn't walk on it or you would have been covered in blood.

I love the wide cut Vortex, been using them for years and don't see a reason to switch. Obviously it isn't the only broadhead out there that will do the job.

I believe the reaper is the most reliable mechanical our there. Muzzy style head lets it penetrate deep in mediocre shots. Had succes with the rage but got tired of the blades opening up in my quiver. Went 2 for 2 last year with the reaper. 1st kill was a text book shot the second was a quartering away shot. Arrow entered in just in front of the hind quarter and exited just behind opposite shoulder. Total passthrough at 30yrds. 1st deer i watched fall second deer ran about 70yrds. In the end no matter what head you go with its all about shot placement. Dave

every bowhunter will tell you what they use is the best. like me muzzy 100 grn three blades. the best thing to do is shoot a few find the one that shoots best with your bow and stick with it accuracy is the key as for fix or mechanical ive only shot the fixed blades but i hear that rage broadheads are awsome.

Everyone thinks there's is the best is correct! I have shot archery for years and in compitition and I could spend 30 min with most hunters and shorten 90% of the hunting worlds draw length and put there pounds back the same and 60% of them would shoot better. But as for broadheads and which is the best both Thunderheads and Muzzy is at the top of the list. buy either and you will be happy provided you have the correct arrow. Ever hear some people say they love a mechanical head and others hate the same head?? The big reason for that is kenetic energy. Some combinations of arrows and head and pounds of draw have it and some don't. If your set up is not produceing atleast 62 foot pounds of kenetic energy stay away from mechanical heads or you will be sorry. Second you better put them in the bread basket or you will again be sorry. they are not for crushing bone like the front shoulder. Which by the way a bow hunter should be aiming 4 inches behind with a bow anyway. More margine for error if you give yourself the room. I could go on for hours but no one likes to hear what they are doing wrong. Good Luck this season.

Check out the Montec fixed blade by G5. Foolproof, solid design that's easily re-sharpened.

get you the rage 2 blade have you ever seen what they do to deer. i was watching a hunting show and this guy was shooting into a half a cow with different types of broadheads and other ones would penetrate the shoulder but wouldn't go all the way through the rage would put the smack down and go straight through. rage is what i shot and i dont think ill switch any time soon.
