Default 60# Bow Broadheads

I was wanting to know what Broadheads you are using on your bows for those of you that are shooting 60 pounds which have you had good short tracking kills with. Going to be my second year bowhunting and looking to get a clean kill next year. Thanks guys!!

I have nearly always shot old reliable Bear Razorheads. Just learn to sharpen them and they'll do the job. Buck #1 this year was down and dead within hearing range -about 75 steps, and buck #2 fell in sight at 55 steps. Both were complete penetration double-lung shots with a 525-gr arrow, 58 lbs DW, 239 fps.

If you want a good quick clean kill then it's more about shot placement then the type of broadhead.

I agree with the above, with proper tuning and arrow selection today's 60 pound bows will do anything a 70 would just 10 years ago, maybe less.

I'm shooting 125 ramcats from my 29inch pse DNA at 57 pounds.

Got two with my 60# Pearson RhinoX this year with it set at about 55# ... one used a QAD Exodus and the other was a Carbon Express F15. Both got two lungs ... the buck (QAD) went about 80 yards and fell over in plain sight of me, the doe (CE) went only 40 yards, but into some dense scrub oaks. I was very happy with both and have no worries about shooting them in the future.

This season I shot and killed with NAP Shockwaves, Spitfire Maxx, Game Crusher mechanicals w 28/60. All short, extremely bloody trails. I got some Viper Tricks after season that are dead nuts w my mechs at 40+ yards.

Shot placement is the biggest factor in a quick,clean kill

I was all about Slick Tricks until earlier this year. My only complaint with them is that they don't have the best blood trails. They will absolutely do the job though if the arrow is placed right though. I switched to 100 grain Ram Cats and I love these broadheads so far. Shot a big 8 with one and the blood trail was fantastic. The hole it opened up reminded me of mechanicals but with the reliability of a fixed blade.

I'm in the pro-fixed blade crowd. Regardless of draw weight, I will shoot slick trick vipers. They fly well, penetrate extremely well, and are fool proof upon impact. I like to minimize the moving parts to just my bow. A good fixed blade that is well-tuned is a deadly thing.

I have always like the idea of fixed blades and have had good luck with magnus stinger buzzcuts but they lacked in the blood trail department. Although I watched everything I shot with them go down. I switched to ramcats this past season and I'm in love with them! Awesome flight and they really open the critters up good!

I have gotten to be a big fan of swhackers and rage extreme with a 2" cut or bigger. Makes possible questionable and marginal shots less questionable and marginal and makes a well placed shot absolutely devastating.

I shoot a Mathews No Cam HTR set at 60#. I shot two deer and a hog using G5 Montecs. All were complete pass throughs and all were recovered quickly. I shot one doe with a rage and got bad deflection from it but still recovered it. I love the Montecs and they hit with my field points way past any distance I'd shoot an animal at. Resharpened the blades and the broad heads are still being used.

IMHO

First tune your bow then worry about where you are putting the arrow. My favorite bow I shot at 62lbs was well tuned, I shot hypodermics and got 100% kills and a high pass through percent.
