Tried fixed on my crossbow and I went to mechanical. I think they fly better on the crossbow.  Used fixed with my compound

GF was in a quandry about what would work best out of her TenPoint...feller at the bow shop fixed her right up with 3 blade Muzzys...he built/put the inserts in the arrows...they fly and track as well if not better than her target tips...she has another set of arrows with 4 blade Muzzys and they fly just as well...shooting inside a 1 1/2 circle at 20, 30 and 40 yards...

Fixed only. Bowhunting has enough variables without adding the possibility of mechanical failure. If that's the only thing that will shoot well from my bow then I guess I'd have no choice.

I shoot Razorcaps from a 55# Super Kodiak recurve, and it goes right through them. They can also be hand sharpened, which I like, because for me there's something VERY personal about killing a deer cleanly with a broadhead that you sharpened with your own hands.
Hunt hard,

Kill swiftly,

Waste nothing,

Offer no apologies.
