Rocky Mountain Advantage
Western hunters should take note of this hardy fixed-blade. Its .04-inch-thick stainless steel main blades and .036-inch bleeders smash through thick hide with a 11/8-inch cutting diameter. At 11/2 inches long, this compact head is designed for accuracy, and it’s easy to re-sharpen. 100-gr. 3-pk. MSRP: $24.99.

NAP Spitfire Doublecross
It’s like having two mechanical broadheads in one. As if the large, 17/8-inch cutting diameter of the main blades won’t do it, the ample 11/8-inch cut of the second-stage bleeder blades results in a massive cross-shaped wound channel, sure to leave an easy-to-follow trail to your trophy. NAP claims these broadheads will never open in flight, no O-ring or collar needed. 100-gr. 3-pk. MSRP: $39.99.

Muzzy Trocar HBX
A hybrid mechanical with fixed bleeder blades, this crossbow head has a maximum cutting diameter of 15/8 inches with the main blades and another inch with the fixed. The offset fixed blades induce spin resulting in field-point accuracy. Solid steel ferrule and chisel-tip can handle the power that crossbows deliver. 100-, 125-gr. 3-pk. MSRP: $39.99.

Rage Hypodermic Trypan
The .039-inch-thick blades are the thickest Rage has ever produced and create a blood-dumping 2-inch cutting diameter. Slipcam rear-deploying design is tough and dependable. Shock collar keeps blades closed during flight. Titanium ferrule, hybrid tip and sweptback blade design ensure maximum penetration. 100-gr. 3-pk. MSRP: $54.99.

TruGlo Titanium X
The one-pice titanium ferrule and Tru-Cut titanium tip provide strength to drive deep through flesh and bone. Four-blade design delivers 13/16-inch and 7/8-inch wound channels. Spin-tested for accuracy. Comes with one set of replacement blades and broadhead wrench for safe installation. Three-blade design also available. 100-gr. 3-pk. MSRP: $41.

G5 Deadmeat
With a 11/2-inch cutting diameter, this three-blade design has an easy-to-use, snap-lock collar for dependable blade retention. Blades deploy via a rearward sliding motion. Collar is built to withstand multiple shots through a target. Includes ballistically matched “target tip” field point that flies like the broadhead. 100-, 125-gr. 3-pk. MSRP: $49.99.
