Reapers. I got my hands on some today and I am very inpressed these seem like some tough broadheads. I may get bashed for this but Muzzy's quality seems to have dropped in the past few years that is just my opinion.

i havent noticed any drop in quality of muzzys. i think that no doubt the muzzys are the "safe" option. i say this because me my dad and brother all use muzzys and if we hit a deer solid it dies. "top of the line" gear is not what kills deer or anything else your hunting its about what you feel comfortable with and what you can shoot well. overall my vote...muzzy

Neither!!!

Reapers have a tendency to break and are cheaply made in my oppinion. Muzzys are nice and very great price u can get 6 of them for less than what im going to suggest...Rage Expandables I personaly use the 2 blades and love them like nothing ive ever seen or used. Like I said if your gun hoe on these 2 choices only then muzzys but if u r lookin still check out rage and if You are worried bout shootin a huge expandable check out there new 2 Bl needin only 40FP of KE to work properly... not tryin to offend u just not sure wat ur shootin or at what weight.

Good luck and God Bless

I'd go with the Muzzy's. Too many bad stories about reapers. I use the standard muzzy 3 blade and MX 3's both have done well for me. I also shoot Cabela's FX3 which is a clone of the 3 blade muzzy. I've tried a bunch of other heads but keep coming back to the muzzy's because they work.

I have shot most broadheads and the Reapers are my broadhead of choice. I have never had an issue, they are super tough, fly like darts, and kill like there is no tomorrow. Awesome head. Muzzy makes a solid head but the blades are super flimsy and don't stay ver sharp. Look at some of the independent broadhead tests or some of the tests that grim reaper has done on their own and the reaper is always near the top of the list.

Easy Choice

Between the 2, I would use the Reapers.

Have you tried the G5 Strykers? They fly extremely well for a fixed head, and their blades are as sharp and solid as any on the market. The one piece ferrel is rock solid. I have blasted thru 2 big bucks' shoulder why hunting in IL. They never made it out of sight.
