I've used spitfires since they came out because they don't have any rubber bands or o-rings, Ive never needed a blood trail becuase the deer always piles up fairly close to me I've used the same ones year after year and sharpen them just like a fixed blade, cleaning them is a bit more difficult than a fixed blade but only requires a small straight slot screw driver, I have shot them consistantly out to 80 yards (yes 80 yards!)without a problem. If I had to switch I would go to the Rage, and for a fixed blade I would go to the Crimson Talon, I just don't see how you can beat a fixed blade that will help your arrow spin and recover faster instead of tring to plane off in one direction. I have never met a muzzy that I liked!
Wow cant believe all the pro fixed blade broadheads! Shoot what works for you not everybody else, try both and see what flies best for your bow and the way its tuned. Some will shoot fixed better than others and that can be related to many things-bow tuning, fletchings, wind and ect... My 2 cents is this- I recomend mechanicals just for the fact of accuracy, the good ones fly great and penitrate well. Theres less surface area for wind planing and I feel they are a little more forgiving than fixed blades. I shoot the rage 2 bladers myself and am very happy with them.Between my brother and myself we took 5 deer and 2 turkeys with them last year and couldnt believe the damage and accuracy of these heads. The only complaint I do have is that I have had them open up in my quiver while traveling but just snap them back into place and they are good to go! Like I said earlier shoot what works good for you and good luck!
But I will never believe that the accuracy gained is worth the risks.
