I prefer fixed but use mechanicals a lot. Never had a problem with grim reapers when I did my part. I tried scwackers this year for my javelina and coues. Killed them both but never again. Jave was 49yrds quartering away, arrow punched through both sides but stayed in side. Jave ran 10yrds and rolled 10yrds blood road was impressive but how does a 70lb 425 grain arrow (340fmj with 125gr head) not exit a 50lb pig😳
Next up was coues deer, mature buck 51yrd downhill shot, arrow entered top of shoulder and angled down in the chest penetrated 10Ē. Never even poked through the bottom. Deer was dead in 50yrds but not a speck of blood.
The Broadhead did its job but if things hadnít gone exactly right I donít think Iíd depend on them.
Any reasonable built fixed blade would of sailed through both the deer and the pig. Even my normal grim reaper razortips have given me pass through a 90% of the time. I hate the fact they are basically a 1 time shoot head. Where as a slick trick or magnus stinger.... new blades and your back in business.
Iíll keep using reapers probably for deer and smaller and fixed for everything else.
