Crossbow broadheads
« on: November 03, 2017, 03:00:23 PM »
Just picked up a new toy (used) - Barnett Ghost 410 crossbow. Does anyone have a broad head they have had good crossbow performance from?
(I know a crossbow isnít archery, but I wasnít sure where to post this question. Iím not trying to start a discussion on that topic, just looking for advice!)

Excalibur Boltcutters.  They are so good their top competitors supply them with their bows.

Thanks! These look like good options.

RAD!

lc=z23zetkb1w2kvtrhw04t1aokglriqzbw3ushkbtnvtebrk0h00410

This was the fourth time this head was shot at an animal in the last two years, I got my deer last year with it using my bow and this year with the x-bow.  Before this year's deer, my son shot it into a tree and creased the top of a bucks neck with it.  I put on new blades, of course. 

This is the TiCon 100, they have a wider diameter ferrule now for crossbows.

Nice shot! I sent a message to radsav asking which model would be recommended, but havenít heard back. Plenty of time to try out some options before next season. How much do you guys find that the broadheads have to be tuned in after everything is spot on with target points of the same weight?

Thanks.

 The broadheads seem to hit where the target tips do already although I have one that does not like to group. I just thought it was the bolt.

I've not had any problems with using a smaller diameter ferrule with my thicker bolts, I really don't think it makes a difference. The biggest difference I see between the RAD heads is the cutting diameter, I like wider more than narrow ones. However, I think Bryan will recommend whatever one makes you feel like it will work, or he wouldn't make them.
