    What's the best fixed blade modern broadhead?

    I am a 4 blade guy and prefer all steel fixed blade heads like a slick trick or Ironwill. Is there anything better out there?

    Looking forward to responses. I've been using Montecs, but always like others input.

    I have been shooting muzzy 4-blade 90Grains for a long time.

    They are affordable.
    They fly great
    They penetrate deep
    They make great blood trails
    They hold up well upon contact with bones

    When I find something better I will be surprised indeed.

    You never see them being compared in any reviews. I could never figure that out.

    I can't get them sharpe as they need to be. I don't think its a steel quality issue but the bevel is too steep. How has your experience been with them?

    Interesting you bring that up because you're right. Nobody reviews them. They've been around forever. They've got to be one of the first 4 bladers I can remember. Shot my first deer with a Muzzy 4 and it did a good job. I thought their blades were too thin ( had them break) and the trocar tip rarely would rarely screw on square to the ferrule. Then slick tricks came out!

    I quit using Montecs for the same reason, they just never got sharp for me. Seemed really dull right out of the box as well.
    When forced to use fixed blade heads, I like Shuttle T-Locks. Super sharp, and fly great.

    I think the Muzzy's aren't ever reviewed cause they aren't exactly a sexy broadhead.. They're economical, long lasting, and haven't changed since as far back as I can remember
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    This one should get fun, although it won't have as many discussion points as the mechanicals do...

    "What's the best fixed blade modern broadhead? "

    Thats like asking what's the best beer ot the best pizza. There is no subatanitive answer since its only going to be subjective and anecdotal. Nobody has tried them all to make such a claim. That said, the best fixed blade broadhead is the one

    1. that flies great out of your setup

    2. give you the most confidence.

    3. is razor sharp

    4. You can afford to loose after just one use

    5. can be reused and sharpened if it survives.

    If your head meets all the above, its the best broadhead FOR YOU and thats all that matters.
