Fixed Blade Broadhead Comparison for Crossbows

Fixed Blade Broadhead that Fly Like Field Tips for Crossbows

To determine what the best fixed blade broadheads are for Crossbows we shot over the course of a week on 14 different crossbows from 9 different manufactures. The goal was to find which broadheads flew consistently like field tips without performing any tuning or adjustments on behalf of the hunter. We tested 6 different broadheads on each of the 14 crossbows and found 3 fixed blade broadheads that stood out above the rest.

We tested 14 different crossbows from 9 different manufacturers

The crossbows we tested varied in speeds from 300 FPS to 440 FPS to get an overview of what the broadheads would do at different speeds.

We tested 6 different broadheads and our goal was to see which fixed blade broadheads performed the most consistent without any tuning or adjustment. Our process was taking the broadhead out of the packaging and screwing it on the bolt without doing any tuning or special alignment. We found 3 fixed blade broadhead that performed consistently like field tips out-of-the-box.

The 3 best performing

  • Muzzy Trocar HBX 100 grain, performed like a field tip on 13 of the 14 crossbows. While not a true fixed blade this is a hybrid with 2 fixed blades and 2 expandable blades.
  • Muzzy Trocar performed like a field tip on 12 of the 14 crossbows. This is a true fixed blade broadhead with 3 fixed blades with a 1 1/2″ cutting diameter.
  • Shuttle T-LOC tied with the Muzzy Trocar by flying like a field tip on 12 of 14 crossbows and is also a true fixed blade broadhead.

The crossbow used in the video is a TenPoint FX4 and the bolts used are Borkholder’s Match Grade Custom Bolts. The target in the video is 60 yards downrange and the target diameter is 1/2″.

Why Equalizing the Weight of Non-Lighted Arrows is Important

When choosing Firenock lighted nocks you have an option use the weight match nock system.

There is roughly a 23 grain difference when adding Firenock lighted nocks. It can result in lower impacted points at distances of 30 yards and beyond, and also change your front of center percentages.

There is a simulated weight that attaches to your nock just the same as the lighted nock that will make all of the nocks weigh the same. This will ensure your arrows all fly the same.
