    I’ve used both but now fixed only, my one buddy carries 1 mechanical and the rest are thunder heads, I said why the one mechanical? he said on real windy days he will shoot that one. I always wondered if any one else does that?

    I’m really surprised that fixed-blade is so popular, if you judge by the ad hype, mech heads are way more popular. [-X

    Since I have always been able to tune for excellent BH flight using fixed-blades, I never bought into the extra headaches of sharpening, blade deployment, and blade sturdiness. And, now that I hunt primarily Elk, mech heads don’t have any appeal for me. [-(

    But in all fairness, over the years, I’ve seen crap broadheads, both fixed and mech.

    I guess its up to you guys to be smart enough to know about what you hunt, what it takes to bring it down, and what is inside your abilities …

    … Hunt to Live … Live to Hunt … Hunt Smart [=}=]
