Welcome to the forum, No need to shout. Please turn off the caps lock, it's considered rude. I hunt with a crossbow as well as a compound. I use the same mechanical's on both bows. I have never used ones made just for crossbows. In fact, I never even heard of them until a couple of years ago. So in answer, They are for the most part interchangeable. Though just like bows, some tunings, and .personal preferences make a difference. As well as what you are hunting.
I had a problem with planing (flat broadhead drifting off path) so I shifted to mechs which shoot like field points. I am not aware of any heads, used on arrows, that can not also be used on crossbow bolts.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

I too use mechanicals on a crossbow, and they are not specifically for a crossbow.They are Rocky Mtn, much like a Rage. I tried a fixed bladed broadhead that I use on my compounds on my crossbow and that did not work well. They dropped much too fast. I would say most, if not all mechanicals would work well on a crossbow. After sighting it in with practice tips, one would do well to try different mech. heads to see which ones perform the best.
