What fixed blade are you shooting? And grain weight?
Have been shooting mechanicals since I started 6 years ago. Finally making the switch, and picking up arrow weight a little. Trying to be arond 500 grains total. What's your setup?

Iím partial to the slick trick standard 1 inch 4 blade. 28 1/2 inch gold tip hunter with standard insert. I plan to go to a 300 spine and add a 100 grain brass insert this year to bump up the foc a little. Not going to go overboard with it though. Whatever you choose, be sure to spin test. The shorter a broadhead ferrule is, it seems they can produce them straighter in high volume production.

Slick Tricks or RamCats. I really like the RC but they are a little of a pain to get out of my quiver, really tight fit.

QAD Exodus. Fly like field points better than any other I've used.

I still use mechanicals too - Rage and Shwacker. Typically keep one in my quiver at all times for long shots with wind.

For me, QAD Exodus 100gr., 537gr. TAW. (Easton Hexx 260 shaft at 30", 125gr. Ethics insert/outsert, Nockturnal) Can't make myself try something else when these are performing phenomenally. There are numerous great heads out there and almost all will do the job. QAD, Muzzy, G5, Magnus, Slick Trick, Grim Reaper, etc... I think the main things when choosing a broadhead are:

1. Proper arrow flight
2. SHARP SHARP SHARP

Outside of those things, you will be fine. I would put down that they need to be well built, but most fixed blade broadheads of a reputable brand will hold up to most of the abuse we could put them through. Choose a head that flies well out of your set up and that is/can become crazy sharp.

Slick Trick Magnum125 gr. I feel these broad heads are just as accurate as my field points or it could be that my bow is just properly tuned.

Total arrow weight around 420grs at 291 FPS. I keep thinking I need to go heavier, around 480-500 grains but so far its worked for me and I may just be splitting hairs. My thought process is if it aint broke, dont fix it.
