Muzzy MX-3 Fixed-Blade Broadheads or Replacement/Practice Blades
This broadhead is great! This is the first broadhead I've ever used, it seemed like a no brainer considering the great price and great reviews the broadhead recieved. I took my first deer, a good sized doe, with this broadhead the second week of archery season here in Indiana. A little four point ran her into the corner of the cornfield my tree stand was in. She came within 25 yards and turned broadside. The shot was a a heart shot and a complete pass through. The arrow was sticking in the dirt where the deer had been and it looked like it hadn't even gone through anything. She only ran 30 yards and piled up within sight of the stand. Great blood trail and 1 inch to 1.5 inch entry and exit hole. Very accurate, and reliable.

My 22 year old son and I were in a two-man treestand last Saturday on 10/24/09. I shot a nice ten-point 153 B&C at 32 yards with my Hoyt AlphMax 35". The Muzzy MX3 took out both lungs and my son picked up the arrow which was stuck in the bank behind the deer. The deer went 60 yards from where he was shot. Definitely worth the $30 price I paid. Now I'm out another $500 to the taxidermist but that's OK.

bad through the bone
ive been shooting regular muzzys for years with great results but was told they would not shoot good in my new bow because it was to fast .the bow shop guy said id have to shoot a mechanical broadhead but before giving in i tried the mx 3s .im shooting 336fps with my bowtech 82nd airborne i lined my blades with my vanes they fly true and group great. the dont shoot exact as my field tips they actualy shoot a little high but thats what the practice blades are for.

Great penetration and accuracy
I switched to these last season after trying to get a 4-blade head to tune without any luck.
The 3 blade tuned better with my setup and I liked the price. Had a early morning shot on a doe at 30 yards last year. Quartering away from me slightly. I made a good shot and the MX-3 performed flawless. See the attached photo. That was the exit hole and it looked like a shotgun slug hole.
The doe ran maybe 50 yards and dropped. When I got to her the hole was still leaking high amounts of blood.
I personally won't switch anymore. Tune well, perform, priced right and no chance of failure like mechanicals. If you are a normal hunter looking for a good broadhead these will work well. Probably won't impress the gear gurus but I love them
