Guys have really strong options about different products that they have no experience with but bc their favorite TV host or hunting mentor instilled it in them the tow the line. There are pros and cons to both and you can be certain not all products are created equal that's a fact! The set up you shoot, arrows, region (woods density), altitude and game (not meaning bear or deer but Whitetail, Mule or Coues) can influence it as well.
I use both fixed and mechanical. I love my Wasp Hammers, NAP (mechanical 2", no collar deploy on impact) KillZones and last year had to try the new Toxic and harvested a slow walking buck at 9 yds. My shot was a little far back, liver and the buck jumped 6 feet vertical ran 15 feet stopped, I nocked a Wasp, Hammer for follow up shot but never hooked my release as the deer fell in less than 1 minute. Personally, if I hadn't done it I wouldn't have believed it!
I hunt the North East, NY bow only and carry 3 different broad heads in my quiver (all tried under variable conditions, tuned to my arrows and am 100% confident in all). My point is don't use something because "he or she said" try a couple different things. The guys here named some great products like the SlickTrick (I like the 4 blade bigger wound channel), NAP, G5's....Rage and Muzzy are both solid too. I hope this is helpful.
