Default Switching to fixed - Muzzy

As I mentioned a while back, I've decided to try fixed broadheads with my compound bow. I got LOTS of great input here on the Bull. Thanks, everyone!

The selection of broadheads at Sportsmans Warehouse is not great right now, which is expected as bow season gets cranked up. Of the 3-4 decent options available, I went with the 125-grain Muzzy One 3-blade broadhead to start off. While my long term goal is to implement higher FOC, a la Ranch Fairy/Dr. Ed Ashby theories, right now I just want to get comfortable with a fixed blade.

Anyone here have experience with this Muzzy broadhead?

Jake,
My 12 year old grandson killed his first deer with a Compound bow last week. Needless to say he was elated as was I. I asked my son what broadhead he was using and he said “I don’t know. Whatever I was using when I used to bow hunt”. He thinks it is a Muzzy and it is a three blade. He hit the sweet spot and the doe went 80 yards. Point being that most will perform if placed in the right spot.

When I was a kid I shot the old Wasp/Thunderheads that were given to me by a friend of my dad. When I actually figured out how to bow hunt I switched to Muzzys and shot them for years without any trouble. With the specific broadhead you’re talking about being one piece I can only imagine it has improved since I shot them last, even with all the company buyouts/mergers through the years.

Jake, It has been a few years since I bow hunted but don't forget one very important fact, the arrow-broadhead combo must spin true or it won't fly true. Happy hunting!

I've been a Muzzy fan since I started bowhunting years ago. 3-blade when I used a vertical bow but 4-blade on my crossbow (because they grouped tighter with my bow).

The newer muzzy (mx3's) don't penetrate as good as the old Muzzy's. If you're looking for better penetration stick with the originals.

I've used Muzzy 3-blade 125gr. for over 25 years and have no reason to go to anything else. I've never had a deer run over 50 yards after being shot.
