Rad Vandyke for me. Finest broad head I have ever used. Local guy/site sponsor and the heads fly amazing and are wicked sharp and kill very well.

Pretty happy with RAD as well, I use the TiCon.

Shot the G5 DeadMeat heads this year, did the job they were meant to do on my blacktail. Anything will kill, it's where you put it that counts  :twocents:

Shuttle T's for me. My hunting partner and I have been using them for years and always had really good luck. Had lots of friends try other brands and had issues (fixed blades and expendables). Everything from flight issues, poor penetration, broken blades, etc. We have stuck with the Shuttle T's and will continue as long as they make them. They fly straight and are super tough.

Shot a white tail buck with a Raptor trick expandable. Tipped over grave yard dead at 20 yards. Considering they are not reusable I will look for something else in 2018.

TiCon 125 and Rival 125, both great designs. I havenít taken an animal with the Rival yet but have killed two elk with itís little brother, the VanDyke 100 LPS which is whisper quiet and solid as a rock. Two whitetail have fallen victim to the TiCon which is easy to switch to sharp, tight fitting blades and it shows no mercy!

G5 Striker for me. Shot them for years.
Iíve considered trying RAD but not sure what I could gain by doing so and Iíve had nothing but good luck with Strikers.

I have used a bunch of different brands, and I have been using the wací em exits. But I think Iím going to switch to the rad heads. The wací emís Are crazy sharp but not super durable. Have heard nothing but good thing and seen good things about the rad heads.

Not the G5 montecs. Two years in a row with bad blood trails to follow. They do the job but I like a better exit wound that spews blood. Shot muzzys for years with great blood trails but might try the slick tricks this year on a recommendation from Denton at Rock Creek archery.

The montecs fly really noisy as well. Might have just got a bad batch as others like them but I won't shoot them again.

G5 montecs CS, though they don't sharpen as good as I'd like, and there price is too high.  Might try slick tricks next year.

Iím also a Shuttle T guy. Iíve heard some people complain that they arenít as sharp as they could be, but ive not had any problems. Iíve shot a few javelina with them one bull elk and a blacktail. Everything has died within site of me from where I shot!
  Iíve tried a few other broadheads and have always had one issue or another. These Shuttle Tís always fly super straight for me and it really builds up my confidence out in the field. Shot placement is number one for me. If I get that little voice in my head, that reminds me, they werenít flying so well at the range during the heat of the moment, weíll no good man! Never any problems with the Shuttle Tís so Iíll be shooting them until theyíre no longer around.. Iím super confident with those on the end of my arrow.
