    I'm new to crossbow hunting and looking for suggestions on which broadheads to use. I currently have dual blade rage expandables that I use on my compound bow and love them. Any help is appreciated.

    I would not use rage broadheads they are not intended for crossbows. I would use a slick trick fixed head. A g5 striker or Tekan. The rage could open in flight with fast crossbow speeds.

    supposedly any broadhead you use in a compound will work on a crossbow. I know of no crossbow specific broadheads. Most crossbows don't shoot anymore FPS than one of the better compounds.

    fixed blades, closed blades have a problem opening at close range and some times they onep on the jolt when shot if they are oring held closed
    common sense is not so common

    most crossbows shoot 350fps or more few compounds shoot that fast.

    Use the 125gr. Votex expandable it will not open and will fly like a field point. The rubber O ring will hold things in place.

    wow, alot of responses alot faster than expected. i appreciate everything. My crossbow shoots at 350 fps and my compund shoots at 302 which led me to believe the Rage with their o ring design probably wouldnt hold up as well.
