i am thinking of switching from my muzzy 100 gr 3 blade to a cut on contact either muzzy phantom,magnus or similar.i want a good strong broadhead, that will serve well for whitetails and even bison. what has worked for you guys, any insight will be appreciated.

Bill I used NAP Razorcaps and Rocky mountain TI 2 broadheads when we stalked in on those Bison. Both got a pass thru on my bull. One Muzzy 3 blade was used on the last shot and that's the arrow we found (that was a perfect length and spine) and Jeff (mudduck) gave me one of his muzzy head. It passed thru too putting blue moons in its eye and the bull into another world. :boone:

I've taken animals with Muzzy 130gr four blades, NAP Thunderhead 100s, G5 Montec 100s, Rocket Sidewinder 100s and Rocket 125 Stricknines.

G5 Montecs are very consistent and strong. The G5 Strykers are the sharpest and most accurate fixed blade head I've ever shot though I have yet to harvest anything with them. The Montecs are outstanding penetrators. If you learn to resharpen them these are the most consistent multiple kill heads I've ever used.

All the expandables I've used are like bullets. One animal per head. You can try to replace the blades on these after a shot but the likelihood the ferrel and tip remain undamaged after a harvest is next to zero. Frankly, in my experience, on replaceable blade broadheads, tip and ferrel damage eliminates about 1/3 of them for reuse.

By far the best penetrating expandable I've ever shot is the Smoke Broadhead. They don't have a huge cutting diameter but because of their design they will cut bigger than they open. They still open to as large or larger than most fixed heads. I haven't taken anything with one yet but they are very accurate and very sharp.

The Rocket 125 Stricknines do the most damage of any head I've ever harvested anything with. Their 2 inch cutting diameter is devastating. But be warned to get the best performance out of these heads I really think you need a total arrow weight of at least 450 grains pushed at at least 275fps.

Whatever broadhead you choose it's performance will be improved by G5s ASD. Squaring up the inserts of your arrows before installing the broadhead really helps broadhead accuracy on ALL broadheads.
