I am new to the expandable world! Started using them just this last fall! Had one good exp. and one bad exp. I will be trying the Rage 3-blade this spring for turkey. If they do as good as many say they do, I will use them for deer. My fixed blade history has been long and Thunderheads have never let me down! If I go back to fixed blades, I will try Slik Trik as I have heard many good reports on these! This sport is a constant learning experiance! For me it’s all about being as quick and humane to the animal/bird whatever, I’m hunting!! Whatever you pick make sure it’s scary sharp, and you can hit where your aiming with it!!
this will be my first year with mechanicals and i will be shooting Rage BH’s, most likely the 2 blade version, so much damage upon entry and exit, and if i like them i will stick with the Rages. i have no problem with fixed blades either. its all about placement
I have to tell you that a lot of people don’t care for expandables. I believe that the biggest reason for this is a resistance to change. I have used Steelheads for many years and I have to tell you they are a great head
Whatever you can shoot accurately and make an ethical shot with. The main advantage that I see advertised with mechanical is “field point accuracy”. IMO, if you tune your bow and have the proper arrow combo you can get that accuracy from many fixed blades.
