300+ fps I'd go with something like a SlickTrick, the G5 Striker, or the NAP Nitron. Personally, I like the Striker really well and will be using it again this year. :cocktail:

Im shooting the G5 strikers. In which im pretty happy with them. They are hitting pretty close to my field points. I did notice that im getting a slight hissing sound out of them. Im shooting the mathews drenilin at 70bls, with 29in St. Epics w blazers.

I shoot a similar set up Vulcan 30 inch draw 385gr arrow 2inch blazer at 308 feet ps.

I shoot Wac-em I have been shooting them out to 70 yards and they are hitting with my field points. I have taken a few animals with them and they have worked well.

I tried Slick trick and G-5 and Muzzy. I could get decent flight at closer range but they would hit low and some low left at the longer range.

NAP NITRONS are the most accurate and toughest little heads ive ever shot. Not to mention they are scary sharp right outta the box. You will not be disappointed!

I have Thunderhead 100s but these shoot pretty low. I have a couple in 85 grains which I have not yet shot. I also have Rocket Sheelheads but I have not been able to convince myself to use a mechanical.

I’ve shot Slick Trick magnums @ 40 yards and they flew great, didn't try further.
I've shot standards out to 60 and they fly great too, same POI as field points.
Bow is paper tuned, Blazer fletching. Arrow speed 293-294 fps.

My Bowtech stryker crossbow shoots 405fps and Thunderheads and Slick Tricks fly perfect over 400fps..... My father hunts with the crossbow and he has shot 3 deer over 40 yards this year with it. He can hit a cherry tomato at 45 yards every shot with old fashioned Thunderhead 100`s. 300 fps is a thing of the past..............
