My broadhead of choice has always been the 125gr Satilite Titan. Proub is Bear (or what bear has become) bought out Satilite and no longer produces the Titan. So I need a new cut on contact fixed blade broadhead. After much looking around I am going to try the "Muzzy Phantoms" has anyone out there used these heads? Would like to hear your opinions on there ability to harvest game.

The phantoms are an acceptably sturdy cut on contacts. They get good penetration. Can be used with bleeder at 125 gr or without at 105 gr. Muzzy has been building broadheads for many a year.
My personnal preference is the Magnus Stinger. I have more confidence in the way they're constructed.
Both run in about the same price range.

An added view.
It's pretty hard to go wrong with any of the Magnus broadheads. I've never had a problem with any that I've used.

Another cut on contact that works well, for me, are the Eastman's in 90 gr, 145 gr and 175 gr. Stay away from the 125 gr. The structure is aluminum with steel blades and won't hold up to a hard hit on a hard surface. The other three are made from brass and steel, steel and steel, titanium and steel.

I wondered why I had not seen the Sattellite 125's advertized any where. Too bad!! That is/was my favorite broadhead. Glad I stocked up on replacenent bleeder blades! Muzzy makes great broadheads but if you are willing to sharpen them yourself, try the Wensel Woodsman. It is a fixed three blade with a 3 to 1 width to length ratio. They are easy to sharpen with ceramic crotch sticks and very strong. I shot sereral deer with then last season and was very impressed with their performance!

Well that style of broadhead is actually the most innacurate type of broadhead you can buy. So instead i would buy a broadhead like a muzzy mx-3 or 4, or a slick trick (I personally stay away from expandables Talk to the Hand because the ones that work, open inside of the game--leaving a small entery wound, and the ones that deploy on contact dont work all the time) So go with the muzzy :\:D/

Well I got the Phantoms and to be honest am not impressed. Out of the pkg they are as dull as dull can be. The steel being as hard as it is it took me a couple of hrs to put an edge on just one that was good enough to take out hunting. I am now working on getting a good group with them an it is coming painfully slow. The bow is set up good and has been paper tuned. At 10 yds all is well but out at 20 yds they are all over the place.
Like I said I have tuned the bow in and put each arrow on a spin tester and get it perfect. Just not happy with the heads.
Oh well will give them a little more time?
