Can't go wrong with NAP Thunderhead. For dependability I'd def use a fixed blade. The more parts you got moving the better chance of something not working right during crunch time.

My goto Fixed head is the Magnus Stinger. I'm really wanting to try the NAP HellRazor but see no need at this point.

Good luck.

I suppose they are not "perfect", but I've never had any reason to shoot anything else since I started using them.

I really like NAP thunderheads.. Been using them for 10 years now and never had an issue. I'll go buy a package of replacement blades once a year and replace the old blades instead of sharpening them.

I have used NAP Spitfires for about 10 years now and have had really good results with them. I tried another brand last season and they did the job just fine but I'll be shooting the Spitfires again this year. My friend shoots the Stinger Buzzcuts and they are super accurate and make nice holes.
