My old trusty Horton has done in a lot of deer over the years and I truly believe that the mechanical broadheads are better than the fixed. Fixed sometimes plane and the mechanicals seem to shoot pretty much like the field points. I also use the cheaper ones at Wallyworld at 14 dollars for three rather than the 30 dollar types. This is mainly because once you shoot that thing, if you miss the deer, you won't be using it again (probably as well as the arrow). And speaking of arrows, I find the carbons much better than the aluminum. This is just my opinion but whatever gives you the most confidence is what you should be using.
You can try the Rage on crossbow, but I had trouble hitting with the 3 blade rage. Don't have any experience with the 2 blade rage, I hear they are great. They had trouble with the early 3 blades and then modified them, but I was not satisfied. I thought it might just be the extra poundage of the crossbow opening the blades in filght. I tried them on my matthews bow and couldn't hit the same place twice either. May have just been the ones I got, but to me it is 35 dollars in the drawer, never to be used again. I'd go with the NAP spitfires, if I were intent on using mechanicals and avoiding 0'rings. I really like them for my regular bow and some crossbow packages come with them. Slick Tricks might work well for you also. I am really impressed with the way they shoot. They are not mechanicals, but fly just like a field point. Shot mine this weekend and they do as advertised. Now I can continue to practice with my field points and be confident my broadheads will hit the same place.
