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.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
