Tried mechanicals, NAP Shockwaves and Rocky Mtn Snypers, both good broadheads. I went back to Thunderheads.
100 grn T-heads fly just like my field tips. So far I have gotten pass throughs on every animal I’ve hit. My longest tracking job has been 50 yrds.
The mechanicals were twice the price of the T-heads and since they didn’t give me better performance I stuck with the T-heads. Also on game like elk, moose, large bear and african game ( in the next couple of years I pray ) I have more confidence in a fixed blade or cut on contact head.
This season: Slick Trick 100grn Mag
Last several seasons: Rocky Mtn Ti-100s
I’ve never killed a deer with a Mech. I like the 100% probability all blades will cut and knowing on non-passthrough shots all blades are still cutting everytime the animal moves, instead of folding up. I tune my bow so that fixed blades hit with field points and check the tune several times during the season. I’ve killed deer at 50 yards with a pass through the lungs. Don’t see a need for mechanicals unless the bow/shooter are not in tune. I keep some Snypers in the case on the off chance I were to drop my bow out of the tree or some unmentionable something happen to it and put the state of tune in question. If that were to happen I can get my target set the sights and use the Snypers until I get back to the shop and check/correct the tune.
