Pssst, With Crossbows..They are called Bolts..Not Arrows But we know what you meant, Just messing with ya...I shoot the RedHot Bolts by Parker..Mainly because they recommend them and they are not that much more expensive. 1 thing I'll say for sure is Watch the Video that came with your Parker and use ONLY the Nock they recommend. The RedHot Bolts are expensive compared to others but I look at it this way...Parkers have a LIFETIME Warranty and recommend RedHot Bolts so that's what I'm shooting because If anything less Blew My Crossbow up, Its my fault to some degree and unlike arrows that you shoot and shoot and shoot, Bolts are tough and once your Crossbow is sighted in, There's No Need to wear your string out shooting for Fun when It's gonna be dead on each time you pick it up unless you bumped your scope or left it in direct sunlight and your sting stretched.
I shoot the same 100 grain Max 3 MUZZY Broadheads that I shot out of my Compound...If you do consider RAGE...Keep in Mind that RAGE now makes a Head just for Crossbows because the regular RAGE Heads would often open at the harsh shot of the Crossbow and cause a eractic Bolt Flight. Several Broadhead Companies are designing a Crossbow Only Broadhead.
