Check out the best new broadheads for 2015:

Badger

Designed to spin in unison with your vanes for greater accuracy and penetration, the tough head on the Badger wields 2 single-bevel .045 ' blades in a solid, molded design. The cutting diameter is 1 '.

Price: $44.99

Rocket | Buckblaster

With 3 fixed blades and 2 mechanicals, the hybrid Buckblaster will cut a big hole. When the latter deploy, the result is a 2 3/4 ' wound that should mean a short blood trail. Weight is 125 grains.

Price: $24.99

Grim Reaper | Fatal Steel

A spring system holds the 3 blades on the Fatal Steel in place until impact. Another feature is the cut-on-contact Trocrazor II tip. The 100-grain version's cutting diameter is 1.25 '.

Price: $44.99

Hartcraft | Deep Cut

The stainless steel head's ferrule on the Deep Cut has a cut-on-contact tip, and its profile opens a low-friction path for your arrow. You can swap out blades to go from a 1 1/8 ' to 1 1/2 ' cut while maintaining 100 grains.

Price: $37.99

G5 | Havoc

The Havoc's 100-grain 2-blader's Dual Trap system keeps the blades from deploying until impact. The German Lutz blades are super-sharp. You get a cut-on-contact tip and a 2 ' cutting diameter.

Price: $38.84

Heartaway

Accuracy, penetration and big wound channels are promised by the maker of the fixed-blade Heartaway head. The pair of .040 ' stainless steel blades have a cutting diameter of 1.56 '.

Price: Starting at $49.99

Innerloc | Shape Shifter

The mechanical Shape Shifter has a non-metallic Exo-Cover that stays on in flight for field point aerodynamics, then breaks away on impact as the blades deploy. The 3 stainless steel blades have a 1 1/4 ' cutting diameter.

Price: $34.99

Magnus | Black Hornet

The Black Hornet is sure to sting, thanks to its bleeder blades. The cutting diameter is 1.25 '. The Tanto point should blow through bone. Available weights are 100 and 125 grains.

Price: $39.99

Muzzy | Trocar

The Trocar flies like a dart even out of fast bows. Helix blades help it stabilize like a field point and devastate upon impact. The cutting diameter is 1 3/16 '. There's a Deep Six-compatible model and another for crossbows. Take your pick of 100 or 125 grains.

Price: $29.95

Slick Trick | Nuke

From a brand known for fixed-blade heads comes the 2-blade Nuke mechanical. Its design ensures the blades open upon impact — but if they do somehow deploy in flight, they'll close back up before impact. The 100-grain head's cutting diameter is 1.8 '.

Price: $33.11

QAD | Exodus

The Exodus has Blade Over Shaft technology, with fixed blades sweeping back. While compact, it has a 1.25 ' cutting diameter. The 3-blader is available in 100 or 125 grains, both in conventional and crossbow versions.

Price: $39.99

Ramcat | Single Bevel

Made to rotate better in flight and deliver more penetration, the Single Bevel has a stainless steel ferrule, offset blades and a cut-on-contact chisel tip. Cutting diameter is 1 3/8 ' for the 100-grain model, 1 1/2 ' for the 125.

Price: $41

NAP | Trivex

Here's one built for speed; it's made to hold up at over 400 fps. The Trivex's features include super-sharp Diamize blades and a chisel point tip to bust bone. The cutting diameter is 1 5/8 '.

Price: $29.99

Trophy Taker | A-Tac

Some archers want a heavy, rugged head. With the A-Tac, a single .080 ' stainless steel blade (total cutting diameter 1 1/8-1/3/8 ', depending on model) extends through the ferrule, which has a 5/8 ' cut-on-contact tip. A unique locking system keeps everything in place. Minimum available weight is 175 grains.

Price: $89.99

VPA | 3-Blade Nonvented

The durable 3-Blade Nonvented is machined from bar stock steel and is Teflon-coated. It's even proved itself on rugged Cape buffalo. Available in weights from 85-100 grains, the head has a 1 1/8 ' cutting diameter.

Price: $39.99

Wac 'Em | 4-Blade Fixed Blade

Promising field tip accuracy and unmatched penetration, the 4-Blade Fixed Blade features a cut-on-contact tip and 1 1/16 ' cutting diameter and is available in 85, 100 or 125 grains. The .027 ' replaceable blades are hardened stainless steel.

Price: $37.99

Wasp | Jak-Knife

The 2-blade mechanical Jak-Knife slices a wide path. It has a 2 ' cutting diameter and a unique O-ring retention system so blades don't deploy in flight. The super-sharp stainless steel tip means great penetration. Weight is 100 grains.

Price: $31.99
