10 Crossbow Broadheads That Hit the Mark

10 Crossbow Broadheads That Hit the Mark

You have many options for great crossbow broadheads when it's time to top your arrow for a hunt.  

By Tracy Breen

In the last few years, broadhead manufacturers have returned to the drawing board.

They have designed broadheads that can handle the extreme speeds and knock-down power of today's high-tech crossbows.


Mechanicals, especially, need to stay undeployed despite the power of modern crossbows, which can send arrows at 400 feet per second.


We've put together some of the latest and greatest broadheads on the market that fly true and accurately.

Their Quad Pro fixed-blade head is perfect for crossbow hunters, thanks to beefed up .045-inch-thick blades and forward-facing bleeder blades that will help keep blood trails short. Very compact 1-inch cutting diameter. 100 grains.

The head comes with a shock collar blade retention system.

EXCALIBUR | Bolt Cutter

This 3-blade fixed broadhead stands out because it tips the scales at 150 grains. The added front-of-center weight can really help stabilize the bolt in flight. In addition, the narrow cutting diameter of slightly over an inch helps the broadhead fly true, even when being shot out of speedy bows.
