Honestly any broadhead on the market is going to work as long as you shoot the proper grain broadhead for your arrow size and the weight your drawing.

For that price just go to walmart and pickup some cheap fixed blades.

What are you hunting???

In MN, the minimum cutting diameter is 1 and 1/8 inches. Be sure to check your state's regs and make sure you comply. As for the price, i'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for. I use Muzzy fixed blades, have taken a deer and a hog with them with no issues. Some guys i know like a head called Slick Trick, so use Montec's (sp?).

You know you only "clipped" 1 lung and the liver? How good was the shot placement? Did you get a pass-through? Before you pass judgement on your equipment, you better be sure you had good shot placement (quartering away). No broadhead can compensate for poor shot placement.

excellent advice......I purchased some Muzzy 4 100 gr at Wal-Mart while I was in Kansas and they did the trick on the coyotes and armadillos we were killing for the rancher after tagging out on our deer! I used G5 Strikers on my Deer this year and they worked well!

I use a 1 inch broadhead, forget the name but these are 2 blades with 2 bleeders that prevent the cuts to clot. I think that may have been the problem why your bloodtrail stopped. Even with a 3 and 4 blade tips, because there the same length its been mention it still possible for the wound to seal up and cloth. If you use a 2 blade with 2 bleeder, because the bleeders are different length its harder for the cut to seal itsself. Just a fyi mention.

In that price range I think the Slick tricks are a pretty good broadhead. I am gonne try the Innerlocs as you can tune them to your fletching.

I tune mine to my fletching by screwing my inserts onto the broadhead before I glue them into my arrows AFTER the fletching is dry. I can line up my 3 blade broadheads to the fletching this way!

Have a look at these

They will spin(if you don't have a spin jig your pro shop does) .
I have blasted through big hogs and big deer with no problems at all. They(Ramcats) fly just like field tips even if your set up is not tuned just perfectly.
I would shoot these heads even if I were not on the team.

I've tried a lot of broadheads, and I just keep coming back to the NAP Thunderhead. They don't break, they always cut, and they always kill in a hurry if I put them where they need to go.
