5 Features of the Best Crossbow BroadheadsTo start, I’ve compiled a list of definitions for words you’ll see frequently used in discussions of best crossbows broadheads throughout the reviews:
1. Cutting Dimensions
It refers to the smallest possible wound size that a broadhead may produce, or, to put it another way, the width measured between the blade tip edges.
Although there may be a trade-off between accuracy (more surface area for the wind to take hold) and penetration (greater likelihood of injuring significant tissue and reaching crucial organs), a wider diameter theoretically has a higher possibility of doing so (less likely to enter the animal so far).
2. Static Collars
a tiny ring that is positioned behind the broadhead where it is fixed to the arrow and serves to both shield the broadhead from damage and maintain its steady position.
3. Wheat Weight
The weight of a broadhead is measured in grains, and the majority are available in 100-grain, 125-grain, and maybe 150-grain choices. In general, I advise using the 100-grain bullet for the optimum accuracy out to 20 to 50 yards and the 125 to 150 for out to 50 to 60 yards. Given that crossbow arrows are shorter and have a front-over-center balance, the 125-grain will also penetrate larger games with more efficiency. It will also retain stability and minimize the effects of crosswinds.
4. Knife Tip
There are two choices available here: either chisel tips which are made to have a significant impact on large animals with thick hides made of fur, fat, and bone Or you can choose the cut-on-contact tip, which tries to cut quickly and deeply.
5. Amount Of Blades
Typically, there are one, two, or three-blade options for broadheads. The two-blade may penetrate more effectively, while the three-blade may widen the wound channel. For the greater game to penetrate deeply and split bone, you would fare better with two blades for this reason (but not always). However, other elements are more crucial, such as where you strike the prey, the force you use, the cutting diameter of the broadhead, and the angle at which you strike it.
