    One of the better shooting FB broad heads in my opinion. I shot them for years. And like above, they are the 30-06 of broad heads. Killed as many game as any head on the market I'm sure. Right next to the muzzy. But muzzy's don't fly nearly as well.

    I think they are the greatest broadhead out there with the possible exception of muzzy. I used them with my recurve and killed 7 whitetails very efficiently. I then switched to a high speed compound and found out that they would not shoot accurately at all out of it. I now use only a crossbow and mechanicals that shoot field pt fine. Bottom line is that if you can get them to hit they are devastating but in my experience their accuracy suffers when shot from modern hi speed bows. They are also a lot cheaper so you may want to try them out of your bow. If they shoot accurate you will never find a finer broadhead.

    Best blood trail I have ever had on any animal. I told my son that was with me this is not the norm.

    A sharp properly placed broad head (luckily) also is a huge plus.

    I think most of the fixed blade broadheads will do the job if they fly good out of your bow. After reading through several of the BH threads on the forum, I have been trying out some new heads that the guys on here suggested, and I will have to say that the ramcats are a new favorite fixed blade for me. Much sharper out of the box than the montecs, and they are truly flying exactly like my field points. I haven't shot an animal with them though, so hopefuly I can try them out soon.

    I shot thunderheads for many years. If tuned properly, they are a great head. My first elk taken with archery equipment was with one. I hit shoulder bone and rib but still got plenty of penetration. The base of one blade cracked but did not separate so the broadhead remained in one piece. The elk went 18 yards, stood for a few seconds, and then fell over.

    I have since switched to all mechanical heads simply because they require less work to tune. Mechanical heads do require slightly more kinetic energy but with todays modern bows IMO this doesn't matter. I have several friends who feel the same way. Between the three of us we have taken our last 6 or 7 elk with several brands of mechanicals without any negative feed back. I feel you just need to make a decent behind the shoulder shot with any broadhead on the market and you have a dead elk.
