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
