Default Muzzy Trocar HB or Grim Reaper Pro Micro Hybrid

Im considering using hybrid broadheads this season. Which one of the two listed above do you prefer and why?

Reaper. Either the micro or regular hybrid, The regular is a bigger cut. Hopefully bone thug chimes in cause he has experience with both

Why not the muzzy…. I got them when they first came out and really liked them, until my dad shot a buck with them. Fully opened hole on entry and exit. But once I got the insides opened up the mechanical part closed up and was only the 1” cut from the fixed blades and 2 little slits from the mechanical part

Ive used and killed with both. I prefer the Grim Reaper Micro Hybrid over the HB. Both fly extremely well but like kd350 said the HB can/chance it could close up once it gets inside.

I have 100% confidence in the GR Micro Hybrid. Ive been impressed with em. Smart has had great luck with the Micro Hybrids on deer and pigs as well.

I like to shoot different broadheads from time to time but If I had to only stick with one it would be a Hybrid.

Grim Reaper 125 grain Micro-Hybrid 1-3/8" blade have been absolute money heads for me. I love those dang things. They have been devastating to deer and pigs for me with solid blood trails and short tracks. If not solid blood trails on pigs, its because their coat (see pics) has held most of it and there was still enough dripping to find them on a short track.

Also forgot to mention that I have bent the very tip on rocks on a passthrough (they are straight unless I hit rocks), ground the tip down to make it look similar to stock, resharpened the blades and killed pigs with them. they are tough mechanicals...well Hybrids...
