The broadhead is a simple tool in its most basic form, think back to the ancient Native Americans with the stones sharpened into a blade. Today there are far more many choices out there when it comes to the best broadheads.
We see broadheads designed today that can remain structurally sound and handle impact forces more than 1,500 pounds. All packed into a tiny piece of metal just over an inch long.
As thousands of hunters nationwide take to the woods for deer, elk, and turkey seasons, you can bet that many will opt for the rugged, tough, fixed blade design. Forgoing the modern mechanical broadhead option is a point of pride for some hunters while many others have found them to be the most successful for the game they seek.
Don’t get me wrong; mechanical broadheads can be quite effective but more and more people are choosing the simpler option. Whether you are looking for a plain two blade broadhead or something with a little more oomph, check out our top 4 fixed broadheads!
4. Grim Reaper
Grim Reaper is known for its devastating mechanical broadheads, but what some people don’t know is that Grim Reaper has a superior fixed blade head – the “Hades.” The Hades is loaded with top of the line features, from back sharpened edges and aircraft grade aluminum ferrule to a unique three-sided “V” notch tip coupled with a four-point blade locking system offering superior penetration with bone-crushing strength.
Finished off with its razor-sharp blades on all exposed edges, it cuts everything in its path, including the air, giving it superior flight from any set up at any speed! What we guarantee the Hades is the most accurate, quietest flying and deepest penetrating fixed blade available! Available in 85 gr,100 gr, and 125 gr all in 1 3/16″ cut diameter with three blades.
3. Muzzy Bowhunting Phantom
Phantom heads are proven performers on some of the heaviest big-game species, including elk and moose. The ultratough, resharpenable .040″ primary blade cuts instantly on impact to drive deep into thick skin and muscle. And the patented, replaceable .028″ secondary blade guarantees massive blood trails. Single-piece ferrules ensure lasting integrity.

1. G5 Outdoors Montec
When it comes to the best of the best, G5 Broadheads, have always led the pack.
