I am getting back into the fixed broad head game again after too many years of mechanical quiver disengagement’s that drive me nuts. Just had a dozen of these shafts fletched up in 3 different 4 fletch configurations. My first 3 broadheads to test will be QAD exodus swept back style, iron will solids, and G5 strikers. (Because that’s what I currently own). Suggestions of others that have flown well for you with this type setup would be great. Expensive to buy them and not end up using them. Thanks!!!!
I also use the muzzy trocar heads and easton FMJ shafts with 3 fletch AAE Max Hunter fletchs. Very accurate setup for me.
I'm no expert & I shoot both trad & compound bows & I shoot big 150 grain 2 edge from my old bowtec 101st airborne & I get bare shaft arrows shooting straight to 20 yds with a combination of rest nock & arrow length adjustments. I always mount my 2 edge horizontal. and have never had a problem getting BIG fixed heads to fly after bare shaft tuning my compound. I don't think feather-vane configurations will have a difference unless a certain one is contacting the rest - riser and deflecting
The wac’em triton has always been one of the best flying fixed blades for me.
Exodus would be my go to.
I only killed one animal (moose) with trocars. They fly great but their performance was not so good (dismal edge retention on hair, hide, and ribs).
I shoot the regular VAPs and over the last couple of years I’ve had good flight with the Trophy Takers terminal tloc, shuttle T, the regular slick tricks and viper tricks...
I broadhead tune my set ups with VAP's and full size Snuffers. I haven't hunted with a Snuffer for 10 years. But when I am shooting fp/Snuffers together. I can usually screw on any other broadhead and still be good.

I have had good luck with the muzzy trokar for the last 4 years.They fly good and the darn things are just lucky.
