I picked up a Ravin R10, which im liking alot. What broadhead would you recommend for elk, turkey, and small game. My hunting partner suggested Iron Wills but pricy they are at 119.00 for 3.

We have been using the schwacker Eli Morgan 100gn for a few years now in Ohio. Big bodied deer. Out of the r10 and r29. Fly great, aren’t crazy expensive, have given great blood trails for us. Total of 15 kills at camp with it. We aren’t planning on changing anytime soon

I use Excalibur xbows these days and have had great success using killzone expandable broadheads. A buddy has a r10 and uses raven branded expandables, also with success.

I am a fan of the Slick Tricks for X-bows. The G5 Mega-meats have also worked well, but I only have a sample size of 3 for those. I do know that even though they sell replacement blades for them, it is damn-near impossible to get them to click into place on the collars like they do when new.

I tried fixed blades on my X-bow when I first got it as that is what I use on my bow, but they plane horribly. Smaller profiles are needed for the speeds at which x-bow bolts are flying at with straight vanes.

Cheap small three bladed broadheads made by Allen, $10. for three. So far not one has survived the trip but neither have any of the victims.

G-5 Montech's are what I use.

I had some that I used for elk with great results with my compound, so I just kept using them on my Ravin.

They are super strong but a bitchh to sharpen/keep sharp.

NAP Shockwave 3 blade expandables have been working great for me on deer and they fly/hit exactly to the same point of aim as my field points. Can't say how they'd work on elk and there's no way in hell I'm wasting 15.00 arrow/head combos shooting small game when a 10 cent .22 LR will do.. That would make for some mighty expensive hassenpfeffer.
