I like slick trick heads. I drilled 2 deer this season with them and am hooked. Either was a pass thru but the damage was unbelievable. When I pulled the arrows out I had to yank them and both times I wound up yanking out a big piece of lungs. Either deer went far and had huge blood trails. But I must admit, I would rather have a passthru. Great broadhead IMO.

I just switched from Grimreapers to G5 montecs carbon steel. Montecs shoot nice. 3 inch groups out to 40 yards. Only problem with the GR's was 1 and done no repeat harvests with the head. Was getting expensive.

Cabela's Lazer Pro Mags!!!![up][up][up]

I've shoot dozens of deer with them. They smash through the rib cage and stay intact! They leave a great blood trail and are razors out of the box. As long as you change the blades you can shoot several deer with the same head. They only cost $20 for six.[up]

Go to the 4 blade Muzzy and you will see better bloodtrails. I love Muzzy but the 3 blades for some reason do produce a weak bloodtrail.

As much as I say I love them I just cant help but try the Blood runners this year.

Always had pass thrus with the muzzys as well (125 gr 3 blade) but also had weak blood trails. I switched to the rage 3-blade. I havent got a chance to use them yet but have heard great things.

Used 3 blade Muzzy 100gr. for the first time this year. Dropped a doe in 20 paces with little blood trail, but I think it was because all the blood filled her lungs and chest cavity. Saw her topple over within seconds of shooting her. Muzzy[up][up]

I'm using the Wasp Hammer SST's, 100grn 3 blade. Kinda like the Muzzys.
I've not had a problem with blood trails. Not always a "bloodbath" but enough to follow without issue for sure.

Furthest I had one run this year was the 8 pt and I hit him a bit back. Got both lungs but wasn't centered if you will through the lungs. He ran about 75yds and piled up.

All the does have run 40yds or under.

Aim lower and you get better blood trails,most guys shoot at the middle of the deer,aim at the heart and you'll see plenty of blood. The last doe I shot with a 3 blade muzzy 125gr left a blood trail 6" wide. :)But if you must try something differant razorcaps are awesome as well

Its not the broadhead..... its where you put it

Its harder to buy a bad broadhead today than a good one... stick with something you have confidence in.

If your getting bad bloodtrails its not the head most likely. wait for a better shot angle. if you shoot every deer from here on out broadside mid height of the chest your arrows gonna come out low and your gonna have a blood trail.. no matter what head you shoot. MHO

That being said, hit em in the right spot with a Thunderhead, Muzzy or other sharp fixed head broadhead and you're taking a ride to the check station[up]
Gotta have the pass through for the bloodtrail.
On the other end of the spectrum, I have witnessed firsthand some less that stellar performances from the expandables that are all the rage today[eyeroll]
