Default Fixed blade, Cut on contact broadheads

Other than the Stingers, what else is out there? I prefer a 2 blade but a 4 blade might work. Open to suggestions....

For fixed blade, I like muzzy phantoms and ramcats!

The NAP Hellrazor's are my fixed blade of choice. I've really good luck with them on deer, pigs, and elk. Pretty durable, and easy to resharpen when needed.

I like Magnus Buzzcut Stingers, tried German Kinetic but only once, and she dropped too low. :-)

Sasquatch, German Kinetics- there are a bunch out there- I like single bevel heads myself as they seem easy to touch up in the field.

I don’t have personal experience with them but I hear a lot of good about iron will and rms cutthroat heads. If I was looking for an upgrade from stingers that’s what I’d be looking at. I’m thinking about trying the cutthroats next year.

Well since stingers are out, I’d say in the normal price range you could go with a vpa head. If money were no object, I’d shoot iron wills

the new head that is a "traditional head" from wasp. It is a lot like the viper trick that slick trick discontinued. I shot an elk with one and was impressed.

im shooting these this year. for a large fixed blade, these fly extremely well out to 50 yards for me. others are shooting them a lot further with great accuracy. I killed a pig Monday afternoon with them and the blood trail was exceptional. very sharp heads and the blades are very thick so they hold up very well.

I’m not shooting fixed blades this year but if I were it’d be the Magnus Black Hornet Ser Razor. I have done a lot of research and I cannot find where anyone has anything bad to say about them anywhere.
