I have been using Firebolts and GTII's. For broadheads it has been the Excalibur X-Act Mechanical and the BoltCutter Fixed Broadheads. I am getting stronger as each day goes by. I still need to take a nap once or twice during the day. Happy Hunting.

I started with Excalibur 150 grain boltcutters, but I am switching to Slick Trick 150 grain Xbow Magnums. I use Firebolts.

Another vote for Slick Tricks. Complaints are very rare and usually turn out to be a tuning issue.
Effective on deer and turkeys too. For the birds it helps to use a grappler to slow the penetration.
Bear, I have no idea, but don't see any issues, the blades are strong.
As for shafts, no big difference in the major brands.

My Vortex is very fond of slinging Firebolts w/2' Blazers,25gr after shock BH Booster and 125gr Vortex Pro-extremes. The total bolt weight is 404gr. This set-up results in complete pass through, short,heavy blood trails and quick recovery.

No turkeys up here but we have sharptail and roughed grouse. Use blunts on them as ranges are usually short. For everything else I use the Slick Trick 175 gr. on Firebolts fletched with 2" Blazers using the Bolt tool. From the Vortex with a FFF string that gets me just over 300 fps. Accuracy is very consistent out to 50 yd. and xbow noise is reduced quite a bit.
