Best mechanical broadhead period

Best overall mechanical BH period!

Whats the best? I've done my own testing at my shop. Done some pretty brutal things. Even bought some ballisitic gelatin. I was surprised (kind of) as to what I discovered. What do you think? Lets hear it!

What were the results of your tests?
The Grim reapers penetrated better and took the most abuse! I hadn't ever paid much attention to them as I used NAP Spitfires for a while with success. Seriously the grim reapers scared me! I would not want to be hit with one! The Rages were ok, but were too fragile for my tastes. They are a "one and done" head for sure 3 out of 5 times! have heard good things about the rocket heads though I did not test them. My vote is for the Razortips, as was Bowhunter (I believe) mag's tester's choice.

I'm not going to vote as I've only used the Spitfires and the Reapers of those you tested. I concur with you that the Reaper is very nice head, just wish they were cheaper!

Have not used them but the Steelhead is the industry standard. I believe the NAP Scorpion XP is head and shoulders above anything on the list. The Scorpion XP's are sharp, accurate, durable, open easily, have a modest cutting diameter for pass-thru everytime performance. What more could you want???

On a recent Alberta hunt Six shots with NAP Spitfires, six kills. Rage broadheads did not do as well, although shot placement did effect the outcome. I have shot spitfires for years with no problems due to the broadhead itself. 1 vote for Spitfires.
