    Broadheads

    What type of broadhead do you use and why?

    Fixed–Blade Broadheads
    Fixed-blade points are the foundation of the broadhead market with more models offered in this style than any other—and more hunters using them. Most fixed-blades employ a chisel-type point intended to deliver a solid bone-breaking crunch and punch through tough hide, along with three to four razor-sharp blades designed to slice through hide and tissue and cut multiple wound channels for rapid blood loss. Most fixed-blade models cut a hole as wide as 1 inches, which is more than sufficient to generate an easy-to-follow blood trail.

    Cut-on-Contact Broadheads
    Cut-on-contacts are among the most original broadhead designs (particularly when factoring in ancient, friction-formed Indian arrowheads). Most often, two and sometimes three blades are fixed to align into a single, razor-sharp point. There is no heavy chisel-point like on a standard fixed-blade head.

    Mechanicals Broadheads
    As noted, lead by Rage, mechanicals have enjoyed a surge of popularity in recent years, with a number of other mechanical designs and brands vying for recognition in the category. Tipped with a solid, power-transferring point, mechanical blades remain closed until striking the target, at which point they deploy to create a wide wound channel. Original criticism of this design centered on a tendency to be more fragile, a failure to occasionally deploy and a lack of penetration. Older models opened as they were pushed from the front upon impact, not fully expanding until actually inside an animal, which sometimes created a limited blood trail. Newer models, however, utilize a slip-cam or similar design that actually pushes and opens blades from the rear of the broadhead—a much more efficient design that ensures blades are open upon initial penetration.

    I got into the Grave Digger broadheads last year, what a great head. It combines the best of all worlds. It is a 1" cut on contact leading blade followed by a 1 3/4" expandable behind. Makes an "x" cut that absolutely gushes blood. I shot a doe last fall and the shot was from 30 feet up and the doe was 8 yards out from the base of my tree. The shot was nearly straight down and the broadhead practically cut both lungs in half before slicing the heart wide open. The deer didn't go two steps!
