The best crossbows broadhead ratings listed below are in no particular order because the best depends on the game you’re hunting, expected shooting distances, and your experience.
1. Swhacker 100-Grain 2-Inch-Cut Mechanical Broadheads Review
It has a razor-sharp hardened high-carbon-steel two-blade point that cuts on contact. Once you get past the first point, you’ll notice the first set of wing blades designed to cut straight through hide, as well as the first set of ribs.
The second set of edges, which do not initially touch anything and open only once within the game to wreak havoc on the animal’s internal organs, are deployed with the help of the first set of blades once they come into contact. Few animals can move farther than 100 yards before stopping.
2. NAP Spitfire Crossbow Mechanical Broadheads Review
When I tested them, I found that the 125-gr had the best penetration, possibly due to its slightly smaller cutting diameter of 1.5 inches. This, however, provides a reasonable wound channel and a large enough blood trail to allow the animal to be tracked. Even if you make good contact, it won’t travel very far due to the ‘Trophy Tip,’ which is designed to penetrate a larger game. Regardless, I’d use these broadheads on the small to medium-sized games. The penetrative tip, decent cutting diameter, and mechanical action make it ideal for deer hunting.
3. G5 Outdoors Montec Fixed-Blade Broadheads Review
Despite the reduced wound channel, heavy penetration will leave a decent blood trail that should easily pass through the animal, especially over shorter distances. It’s a simple broadhead to use – just screw it on and shoot – and it also allows for easy sharpening, so you can get a lot of (re)use out of it. This was significant because I discovered that it could have used a little more sharpening right out of the box. This 100% stainless steel broadhead is spin-tested to ensure the weight and centricity required for long-distance performance.
