    I like 3 blade fixed that I can sharpen myself - like VPAs pictured. Been using them for 5 years and they far exceeded my expectations. If sharpening your own does not appeal to you - hard to beat any muzzy or thunderhead. I agree the QAD Exidus is a sweet looking head. I can also highly recommend the Terminal T-lock by TrophyTaker. Very tough accurate sharp head with extra thick blades and really penetrates. Good luck - as long as it's sharp and you get it to fly well you really can't go wrong. Name:  image.jpg

    Thank you guys !
    I understand placement is the most important, and being a beginner is not the question since I place the arrow in the vital box. My point was, as a beginner, I am
    not familiar with brands and more specific details about fixed broadheads (2 blades, 3 blades, removable blades, and more) but thanx to this thread I am learning about it.



    Thank you again !

    Slick Triks magnum, Wasps, and Muzzy's all do the job providing you hit where your aiming. 20 yrs ago I used Satellites which worked also.

    The newer Muzzy Trocar would be high on my list. I have a buddy that habitually loses deer every year with a very poor 25% recovery rate. This year he went 4 for 4 after switching to those.

    Years ago I shot a 70 lb Martin with the heaviest arrow Easton made at the time, this was before carbons came out, I forget the number but it was like a 31 inch telephone pole tired with a 150 or 175 gr. Zwickey cut on contact, nothing would stop it. Whole different story today with all the thin light carbons.

    number one......they must be sharp.
    number two......they must fly straight from "your" bow.
    only way to know is by testing, practice.

    I shoot 62 lbs. I no longer use fixed heads but when I did I used slick tricks, quad exodus, and steel force phat heads. Many of the properties I hunt now are 5 acres or less so I need to put the deer down quick. I use the dead ringer rampage 2 blade hybrid head. I have not lost a deer and most run between 10 and 30 yards and fall 0ver
    No matter what happens, whether you succeed or not, if you stand up and do it right and pay attention, hunting will always give you what you need. It may not be what you were looking for, but it will absolutely be important enough to justify whatever you did to get it.ā€¯

    Muzzy 3 blade 100 is a very good head.
    They shoot well with most set up and for a smaller head have always given super blood trails.
