I tried to setup a poll, but don't see an option here confused I'm leaning towards the G5 Strikers, what is your vote (fixed only)?

G5 Striker for me. I've never tried the others.

I've shot a buck and a doe with the Strikers and both were complete pass thrus and awesome blood trails.

I'm with you on the G5 Strikers. Just started shooting them this summer. Haven't hunted with them yet, but man, do they fly nice. No reason to shoot a mechanical head anymore. Moving parts and broadheads never made much sence to me anyway.

Only other fixed blade I've shot for the last 15-20 years or so have been Thunderheads and they've always performed well for me.

As far as I'm concerned you picked three of the best fixed blades on the market to pick from (Muzzy makes a darn good product too). Last year I narrowed my choices down to: sharpen myself = Snuffer SS or replacable fixed blades = Striker.

For me, Snuffers. Or magnus 2blades, depending on the bow, but primarily it is Snuffer 125, I only trust blades I sharpen myself.

100 grain Montecs for the last two seasons and this year will be the third. They can be resharpened easily and actually killed two deer with the same head after a sharpen.

By far best cut on contact broadhead that I have tested is Steel Force. Otherwise Muzzy would have to be my next Choice. I know most are reading ths and probally have hardly heard of Steel Force but take a look at them once, Best overall Head.

G5 Strikers for me. They are replaceable, but I resharpen them when I get the time. A very solid head that is wicked sharp right out of the package. I also like how the ferrule locks in the blades. Several deer have met their demise from the striker and my bow.

All great suggestions so far... I'd put any of those in my quiver. I'll toss out another great head - the Shuttle T-Lock From Tight Point (Trophy Taker.) Fly like darts and very durable w/ replaceable blades.

G5 makes good heads but my favorite fixed blade is 4 blade slick trick or whack em. A 4 blade cut forces the tissue to pull apart better and deters closing or blockage of blood. They're killer.

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
