Old school 100 grain Thunderheads for me.
I've used Thunderheads for 30 years, first 125s and then 100s.  That said, I'm considering a change.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

My wife and daughter both shoot them.  Started them both out with Wasp and they have been killing deer with them so no reason to change.  I think when they start to run low on heads I will switch them to Thunderheads so we are all shooting the same thing.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

125gr G5s. I have like two dozen of them. Once I run out, I'll switch to Radical. I tried to convince Radsav that I'm a pro shooter and needed freebies but he didn't fall for it. So, he'll have to wait a while for my important 3-broadhead purchase.  :chuckle:

I've shot the Wasp Bullet, and was in the kill zone every shot out to 60 yards. A few years ago I changed to the Wasp Boss and it cut through my bull easily. I wish the Bullet had a 125 grain option. Nice broad heads.

I've been rolling with G5's, but MLB talked me into trying some RAD heads last year and I like what I'm seeing!  Plus, it's kind of nice to support a local company and forum member.

 :yeah: That is the only reason I would try something different....To support RAD/forum member.


Whats interesting for me when this topic comes up is all the various claims to bone crushing, penetration, short blood trails, etc.  Let's be honest, If a person makes consistently good shots, every broadhead on the market will make for a quick kill, heck it used to be done with a sharpened piece of rock. 

Yes some will/may shoot better out of your set up.....Use what you are confident with.

100% that's actually why I love that the DRT heads can be bought in singles so that you can just try them out. Shout out to them, they make a fantastic head and I love that the owners send the heads with a hand written note.

How were the blood trails?  Did you use the LPS or HPV?  I ordered some LPS to check them out.

I use the LPS blade. Both bulls shot with them either died or laid down within sight. The blood trails were impressive even in the short amount of time.
