Schwacker crossbow broadheads question

B17-P51B17-P51 Member Posts: 2,066 ✭✭✭
I am new to crossbow hunting, but not new to bow hunting. I was having trouble with my broadheads sailing higher than my field points, making accurate shots almost impossible . The talk seems to be that the Schwacker 1.75" crossbow broadheads will not do this. Has anyone had experience with these? Is it as they claim? I shoot a Ten Point RDX bow.

    I have no Idea on them.
    I'm also new to the crossbow game.
    After sighting my new one in, I switched to the G5 heads I'd bought for it.
    It shot consistently 4" to the right.
    I just ended up setting the scope to the broadheads.
    Still accurate but not where the field points hit.
    A lot of the broadheads claim "flies like a field point" but, after talking with other crossbow shooters, I only found 1 that hit the same place with field tips and broadheads.

    I only shoot fixed heads also.
    I had an early on bad experience with mechanical heads and now I do not trust any of them.
    I know that they have come a long way since my incident but not taking any chances.

    A buddy bought the hypodermics.
    Shot at a coyote, missed, and noticed on retrieving that the head never opened or tried to open even after hitting the ground.
    Shoots like a field tip because it is. :x
    Why I just shoot fixed.

    Chief, Not trying change anyone's mind, but I have been using Rage mechanical heads for over 10 years. I have never had one fail to open. The current ones with the shock collar hold up excellent even at the 420 FPS that my Ghost slings them at. Two inch slot through the heart dumps them darn near where they stood.
