I have used a lot of them over the years, I think the best I've used are the Grim Reaper razorcut or razortip, I've used 85gr and 100gr, i have had good luck with Rage 2 blade or 3 blade in 100gr, I have taken a lot of game with both of them, and never lost a animal, I have killed deer , pig, bear, and elk, and turkey,but I also use fixed blades at times, hope this helps!

I do not think you are supposed to shoot through the screen of your blind w/any mechanical b/c they might open.

I have thought about this shoot through the screen stuff, I think I would want a cut on contact head with 3 blades. But have not tried it.

With the Grim Reaper you can shoot through the screen without a problem, the reapers do not have bans or any of that stuff they are spring loaded, when you jet a pass through on a deer and find the arrow the head is closed, it opens when it's going thru but closes after that, I've know-en people to say their reaper did not open after a pass through, because it was closed but if you look at the size of the hole, their is no doubt that it opened

there was a good video on youtube about broadheads I was looking at the other day, they were testing alot of broadheads and showing in slo mo how they operate,pretty cool video, i think if you search rage broadheads, a few video's show up.

Grim Reaper or X System. Both will go through the screen with know problems.

Same here. I saw the post, "What's a good mechanical broadhead?", My first response was, "No such Thing!". I guess some people love them. I've just never met one. Too many good fixed "Real" broadheads out there for me to even think about using something you have to worry if it will open.
