    I'm at 298 fps with my FC400, and I'm getting very good results with both Slick Trick 100 gr. Magnums, and 100 gr. Shuttle T-Locks. Getting very nice groups out to 50 yards so far. The T-Locks do appear to be grouping slightly tighter at that distance, both both are well within the kill zone on a whitetail.

    Cool Bad To The Bone Still King Here...

    Muzzy MX-4s, and also Rocky Mountain Premiers all 100gr which I like for the cut on contact.

    Really thinking about trying the VPA Terminators 100gr and 125gr. Haven't found a mechanical that I am 100% ready to give an opportunity to.

    Default Rage

    Why well because the field tips, practice broad heads, and the real thing all group in the same spot without sight adjustment. Also I experimented with my old bow last year shooting out of my ground blind and they worked reliably using that.

    my input is minimal since I havent harvested a deer, but I bought a few packs of the crimson talon x system broadhead. 100 gr. It has a 7/8 fixed main blade, with a two blade mechanical that opens to an inch and half. All blades are offset from the opposing group of blades, so its like having a four blade. They have a low profile, no orings, snap back in place, not considered barbed, so not illegal here in ny. And they come 3 in a pack with three turbine tip practice heads. They have a twist in the main blade to create spin, better wound channel and flight they claim. I was shooting around 240 which is slow I know, but getting groups less then an inch at 20 and an inch and a half at 30. Didnt have to change my sights, and keep in mind I'm new at archery and cant shoot that well to begin with, so my practice tips arent any tighter. Also I was using borrowed arrows, and later found out the feathers had a left hand twist, so they were fighting one another in flight, and still had those good of groups.I was impressed with the flight, and they look like they will put a nasty hole in something, while still having a cut on contact tip. A guy on ebay had them for 15 dollars free shipping, everywhere else 30-40. Just a thought. Its worth it just for the experiment to see how they fly. my 2 cents.
    oh and I had only bought one pack, shot them and was impressed and bought another pack immediately after. I have 6 broadheads, and 6 practice tips for 30 dollars. Be aware there are no replacement blades sold, and sharpening the main blade with the twist may be difficult. a lot of guys kill a few deer, then throw the head out. But I've heard as many as 5 deer killed with the same head.

    I am new to bowhunting this year but I got a three pack of NAP Shockwave mechanical broadheads. They are a three blade design that flip out on contact with an O-ring to hold them in place in flight. I have only been practicing with field tips as of now but will switch closer to hunting season. I am shooting at ~281 fps so we will see what happens.
