What does everyone use and swears by? I use muzzy 125 grain but thinking about switching to fixed broadheads.
  

Leave young sika stags to grow!!!

I'm a big fan of the Helix. Unmatched penetration. Great on bigger animals. Smaller deer (Sika, Fallow) I'm ok with mechanicals.
But it does depend on what you're hunting.
And the poundage of your bow.

I'm using Montec 125gr 3 fixed blades.  they're easy to sharpen, hard wearing and fly reliably, couldn't ask for more from a broadhead and they aren't horrendously expensive compared to some brands.

I have had great luck with G5 Montecs as well, I've always used the 100gr carbon steels.

Best results so far are from Grizzly Monarchs 200gn. Simmons Interceptors going real well also, just a little soft if you hit a shoulder joint, 190gn. Tusker Aztecs at 300gn working well and cheap.
