    Best Mechanical broadhead for low poundage?

    I only shoot around 57lbs and was wandering which mechanical broadhead do you recommend with this draw weight? I shoot Slick Tricks now but would like to try a mechanical broadhead.

    The regular G5 tekan would be a good option since it is a 2 blade 1.5" cut or a Rage 40 KE but I'm not a big fan of the Rages, when I was pulling 58#-61# with my Switchback I used the Bloodrunner 3 blade and i still do and they did pretty good and I am hoping to kill some deer with my Z7 and the bloodrunner this season.

    I highly recommend the Grim Reaper 1 3/8" Razor Tip. With your setup you shouldn't have any proplems at all.
    My son shoots 45# and have been enjoying passthrus.

    Here's a video of a deer hunt to see low poundage and Grim Reapers in action, please feel free to comment on the vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGMsCOudvBQ

    Try the Hyper Shock from After Shock Archery. The don't open until inside the animal and do some devastating damage.
    So many cats,,,so few recipes.

    Yup.....I agree. Check out the 2010 Broadhead test posted here on AT......

    Personally id stick with the tricks, but if youre using a midweight to heavy weight arrow you will be fine with any mid sized broadhead you choose.

    Anything but the rages(40KE or otherwise) The blade angle is too steep. Look into the grim reaper 1 3/8" or the 3 blade meatseaker. Both of these heads take very little energy to deploy, both have very swept back blade angles, and neither one will give you problems with premature blade deployment from bumping on something or from being in you quiver.

    Scorpion Xp's would be my first choice, Grim Reaper, with the 1 3/8" cut, my second. Use either one of these and you will be digging your arrow out of the dirt.

    Rocket Steelheads will out penetrate ANY b-head that I've EVER found (mech or fixed) and I shoot all kinds of different b-heads from year to year and it still amazes me how these lil' wicked mechs perform!!!
    An "archer" tries to see how far away he can get from his target and still connect. A "BOWHUNTER" tries to see how CLOSE he can get to his.

    with low poundage setups I personaly would stay away from mechanicals if you insist try to find one with a relativly small cutting dia. also use the models that open from the rear instead of the front to back.there are just too many fixed blade heads that fly very well and take minimal tuning.
