    I like Ram Cat broad heads for elk, plus they make a deep six version. I used them on hogs and elk last season. No problems yet. On the other hand my brother uses Rage on everything and he has not had any problems either. IMO...it's what you like and what your bow likes.

    If it is man made it can fail... the more moving parts the more apt to fail. I would stick to fixed blade especially if it is an important hunt such as in another state, one you have to pay for or on anything bigger than and antelope.

    Okay here is some groundbreaking, earth shattering news... if you put a sharp object into the soft spot behind an elk's shoulder and push it in hard enough to puncture one or more of the vital organs the elk will die! Okay, now that I got that out of my system... here tis.

    I've shot elk with Rages and seen my buddies shoot elk with Rages along with plenty other people (Primos boys). I've been shooting them for a long time and love them for absolutely everything. With that said, a man couldn't go wrong with a fixed blade either (Fred Bear)! It truly is personal preference. Shot placement is the key!

    I have been a Muzzy 125 MX3 fan for Elk since they first came out. I like the Stainless steel feral on the 125 instead of the Aluminum ferals that most broad heads have. That being said all conditions being perfect and placement is good all the time either will work. I just never seem to be find myself with those perfect conditions. I guess I operate on a worst case scenario when Elk Hunting. Mark

    I have used the muzzy mx3s with great success and am now shooting the Magnus snuffer ss. Hard to pass up the lifetime replacement and like the way they shoot as well. Best of luck.

    Rage two blade is my go-to mechanical. Put many animals down with it. For states that don't allow mechanicals I tested a bunch of fixed blades and found Slick Tricks (standard size) flew the best.

    I shot mechanicals until I was on a stalk and hit a branch and it opened up, I shoot Slick Trick 100 magnums now and they have the same POI as my field points.

    I've had great success with slick trick standards 100 gr. for my set up, they fly exactly like my field points. I've only tested them to 70 yds, but they are accurate as fixed heads can be. They also are brutal on penetration on big bulls.
