    Re: Mechanical or fixed blade? Advice needed

    I have only used rage hypodermic's in the past, but am switching to day 6 evo's for this year. They fly great but the last time I used them (hog in saskatchetoon) only one side opened up, aside from that you typically bend blades and have to replace bits and pieces everytime they're used. That being said I've got some 100gr heads I'll give someone a good deal on!

    All things mechanical will eventually fail, shoot fixed blades for ultamite reliability.

    I've swapped to DaySix EVO's they fly perfect out to 100yards with my field points. I am actually gonna be trying the IRON WIll single bevels this year. I just ordered 6 of the single bevel 125gr Iron Wills this morning.

    As has been stated by others. Go with fixed and heavy at that. More blood more blades (3 or 4), deeper penitration 2 blades.

    I run fixed blade and tuned my bow to shoot them exactly as my field points which isn't that hard to do.


    When I was tuning my set up I was wishing QAD had a micro adjustable rest, now they do.

    I'm not really an archer. But I've had a couple "aww shit" moments with mechanicals. Muzzy trocar fixed blades have made "oh shit" shots into lethal shots. Giving pro series Grimm reapers a whirl this bear season.
