I use the spitfire by NAP they are shooting exactly the same as my field points. Never have any issues with them not opening or poor penatration. They scared me a little the first time I shot a deer, when I found the arrow it looked like the baldes didn't deploy but after looking more closely they opened and then closed when they exited the deer. I like them but may change to RAGE slip cams next year.

Not sure what you mean when you say "replacable" I have repalced my blades on the spitfires after every deer I have shot.

Replaceable refers to a braodhead that has fixed blades that are removable to be replaced like muzzy or thunderheads
fixed refers to a blade that has to be sharpened
and mechanical is obvious, i think

I use the Muzzy Phantoms @ 125gr. Nothing like them in my book! Tear big holes and leave great blood trails. They even look nasty!

I used to shoot Razorbacks and Wasps. I now shoot Thunderheads and Rocky Mountains. Had a BAD experience with Rages and will NEVER shoot the mechanicals again. All four of the above fixed/replaceable blade broadheads have never let me down and always led to a fast recovery and great blood trails.

I used g5 monotecs last year, this year I am switching to the g5 strikers.  I'm not good at sharpening the blades on the monotecs and they weren't as sharp as I would have liked them "out of the box".
