Have about 7 of the standard 100gr Spifires I used for compounds but have really been looking at the Reapers new Xbow heads? Which head do you prefer for the Xbows and why??

I now only shoot SpitFires. They get the job done with no problems. I shoot a 450 gr. arrow at 265fps. and I had all pass thews. The blood trail was great. I like that you can use practice blades to sight them in with.

I took 2 deer with the spitfires last year. It left a solid 1" plus hole through both sides of the deer on both deer. Why change what is not broken.

Wouldn't the reapers be less likely to deflect? I have used both, but not enough to make a judgement call between the two.

I shoot the Grim Reaper White Tail Specials. There are 2" with 3 blades. They leave one HECK of an exit hole. My only issue is the entrance hole. My predator shoots 375 fps and the head is literally inside the deer before it gets opened up. Not a very big entrance hole. Search Grim Reaper on Youtube and you will see some of my video's using this head.
