    I was going to suggest those exact heads. The Silver flames are awesome. Are you sure you want a two blade?

    I have no problem with 2 blade broadheads, but would recommend a 3 blade instead. Why? You get more surface area covered on a shot. A 2 blade might penetrate better but a 3 will do more damage in the long run.

    Just my two cents.

    Two blader broadheads on crossbow.

    I do agree with Enysse on the cutting damage on a three blader and over longer distances two bladers tend not to be as accurate as three bladers. They tend to fly more than a three blader.

    Simply I agree with you in relation to penetration of 2 blade broadheads - it 100% effect!
    However ballistics of flight of arrow with 2 blade broadheads,3 blade broadheads and 4 blade broadheads considerably differ at crossbow and bow.
    P.S.

    enysse-I value Your opinion and advices.

    Zwickey's are good as well. Lots of different weight options.

    What broadheads do I like?

    I like Thunderheads, Muzzy, G5, Rage....to name a few. I like no more that 1 1/4 width with cut on 125 grain broadheads and 1 3/16 for 100 grain broadheads. There are a lot of great broad heads out there.
