I'm a big fan of the Rocket Sidewinder (1.5") and Hammerhead (2"). It doesn't hurt that I can get them delivered for under $20 a pack. The couple packs of Spitfire XXX (2") and Spitfire Maxx (1.75") that I tried also worked well, albeit weren't as soft on the wallet. Due to rocky soil, all my heads get a single trip. I double band everything that calls for a band, and single band everything that doesn't. From experience, I've also got in the habit of replacing any bands remaining from last season.

There are a lot of good heads out there as long as you can avoid the cheap knock-offs.

I've gone back to Slick Tricks just because I need to know every arrow that goes in my quiver will hit the "X" out to 50 yards so I practice with the exact head and arrow and just change blades. I'm my own PITA when it comes to this. I even put a marks on my arrows where the blades line up once they are all shooting an 'X" at 50 so when I change out blades I get the same head alignment every time... Plus the Slick trick blades sharpen back up very nicely..

I used Muzzy crosskill 125 grain early crossbow broadhead then to Muzzy 125 grain trocar crossbow . Now I am using Muzzy trocar HBX Hybrid also in 125 grain first 2 off the Exomax the trocar and the trocar HBX hybrid off the Matrix 330 I can say without a doubt the Hybrid are deadly accurate as I practice with the broadhead I will be hunting with.

My kinda thinkin' !! I do the same thing but I'm shooting RamCats now.

Favorites
Ramcat 125
Slick Trick (150 xbow, 125 magnum, 100 std)
Magnus 2 blade 150 (here piggy, piggy)

Montecs fly great..really consistent, but I cannot get them really sharp and this contributes to less blood IMO. But I put one through both shoulders of a mature doe a few years ago. She didn't go far at all but there was zero blood. Of course that is a bit of a fwd shot so maybe I'm unfairly blaming the head. Used these on the first bison too at the outfitters suggestion. Performed well with no damage at all.

NAP spitfire 100 gr from 1996 to now...My only complaint is 100 gr ones do not weight 100 grs anywhere from `103 grs to 106.9 grs....

does it matter not really but I like things sort of accurate ...
