I really like using a fixed blade broadhead. In all fairness I have no experience with mechanicals so I can't speak too much on that aspect. But I started using fixed blades for fear of a mechanical failure with a mechanical broadhead. I know the chances of that are slim but I wasn't willing to try them out. With every deer I have shot with a fixed blade i have gotten a full pass through, however, my blood trails haven't been great (hit vitals every time). So for the lack of blood trails the mechanical broadhead does some appealing because they leave utter devastating blood trails. Anyone have experience with both?
