I shoot both Muzzy 125 (3 blade fixed) and Thunderhead 125 (3 blade fixed) out of an older PSE. Zero complaints with either. I started with the Barnett in 2004 when they were first legalized. Aluminum shafts. Placement is everything.

When I bought my crossbow last year, I was determined to shoot fixed blade heads. I ended up shooting what I shot with my compound... Slick Tricks. They're very accurate. Mine are 100 grain, never tried a 125. After making a double lung shot on a 117 lb doe and tracking her 150 yards. When I cleaned the deer, I confirmed that each lung was hit with the broadhead and they were. Complete broadhead cut, through both lungs. I have no idea how she ran so far, and bled so little. Center of right lung, exited low on the left side and went through the bottom of the left lung. She should have bleed like a river. , I'm going to shoot mechanical heads now. I bought Swhacker heads to shoot.

I'm not trying to convince you to shoot mechanical. I posted that to say this.... During the time I was trying to decide which head to shoot, I watched a tremendous amount of YouTube videos. I found one, that compared a bunch of different fixed blade heads. I can't remember which one was the most accurate, I think it was "Tooth of the Arrow" heads. Slick Tricks did good too, but some and I think it was the Montec, that didn't do well at all. I will try to find that video, but I'm not sure I will have the time to find it.

Point being. Just because it's accurate when being shot with a compound, doesn't mean it will be accurate when shot from a crossbow. Shorter, stiffer, arrows. Much more velocity. It's just different.


If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

I tried 125 fixed with a cross bow but went back to mechanicals. They fly much better imo

I have shot nothing but Slick Tricks out of my compound bows and crossbows for the last several seasons and have not had an animal leave my sight. I shot mechanical broadheads one season (Rage) and after losing 3 animals with little to no blood trail I switched to the Slick Tricks and have not had a problem at all. That being said, I do shoot a 100 grain from my compound and 125 grain out of the crossbow.

I would suggest stepping up to around a 400FPS crossbow, which usually come with silencing dampeners to help with the sound. Just more advantages than I can mention than a 260 or below FPS. Ten Point's own broadheads have good reviews. Slick tricks have come up a lot in discussion over the years as good reliable broadheads in the 125's. Lot out there about stepping up on the arrow weight or making it forward heavy for better penetration if you want an advantage. Shot placement is the key, period, with any setup. There is a lot more drop to compensate for on a lower FPS crossbow like the Blackcat. Get a rangefinder to help with the drop. If the deer is at 22 yards and you have your crossbow at 30 fixed you can then hold down without changing anything. Deer sometimes don't know they should be at the 30 yards. Shoot at a bag target and you will see the difference between 20 and 32 yards is considerable and a carbon shaft and an aluminum shaft are considerably different. Then you will also see the importance of a rangefinder.

the standard Magnus Stinger 125-grain did the job perfectly on the 160-pound 9-point i killed opening day. complete pass through. massive blood loss. dead within 50 yards, in clear view. couldn't have asked for better ...
