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.

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible.
