    Literally a million choices...lol

    In my Excalibur here are my go to heads that have served me well over the years.

    Fixed head - Exodus x-bow head in 100gr or 125gr. I use the 125's for more FOC.

    Mechanical - Grim reaper x-bow head in 100gr or 125gr.

    I have used both on White-tails & Black bear. Put them in the sweet spot & watch-em drop.

    I used one from the beginning and it works and shoots true, Wasp fixed 3 blade 100-125gr. I have used them on a few different crossbows, all excaliburs.

    I like the idea of a fixed blade, a keep it simple idea.

    I suggest fixed blade, I have personally experience much fewer problems with them. I currently use Montec G5 fixed blade in 100 gr on both my exo's with no issues out to 50yrds (I don't shoot beyond that). You will also find they fly differently than field points, since they come in packs of three I keep one to use as target practice and save the other two for actual hunting.

    I have used the Slick Tricks with good success. They are the only head that has the same poi as my field tips. I use 125 grain magnums.

    For bears, get a big mechanical for a big blood trail. If you don't trust mechanicals, look at a hybrid head like the Grave Digger or Grim Reaper Hybrids. The guaranteed performance of a fixed head with the blood trail of a mechanical.

    The only concerning me is the broad not shooting like the field tip,I guess I have to follow Marker's recommendations and give up broad for practice.

    Yes! Don't expect any head to fly with fp's without trying them.
