Well, I should have looked at the available options before perfectly tuning my new arrows. It seems that I am very limited when it comes to 175 grain screw in heads. I am leaning between Grizzly's and the single bevel Eclipse Werewolf's. Any other good options that I'm missing. I have also debated just taking out the 50 grn brass inserts and putting the 25grn aluminums in. This would allow me to bump up to 200 grn heads which appear to be more plentiful.

I would check into steel broadhead adapters, they come in 75, 100 and 100 grains. Then look into the glue on broadheads and figure out what best meets your needs and weight. You can also look into brass inserts that come in 50, 75 and 100 grains. It just takes some figuring to find the right ingredients. For me, if you're set on a 175 grin broadhead, I would go with a 170 grain screw in Zwickey Delta with a 5 grain brass ring. But then again, I'm a Zwickey fan. Best of luck

I like the Simmons in 175 grain. I took 2 deer this year with them. Great blood trails!

175 Grain VPA 3 blade and you used to be able to get a Snuffer screw in at 175 too but after the company closed they are hard to find. 3 blades sharpen so easy......

With the variety of glue on points and inserts available it's not hard to come up with a 175 grain head. Furthermore, I've never found a 5-10 grain variation in tip weight to make much difference, especially with carbon arrows.

I used the 175 grain werewolfs in double bevel this year and got a good blood trail and awesome penetration out of my 50# Kodiak with C/X250's. 10 point was quatering away went through from high on back rib and ended up in front leg slightly above knee, they also shot right where my field points did when trying them on target.

Now we're digging where the taters are.

What are you using to sharpen them?

There are numerous options out there. Even if you were limited to grizzly and Eclipse. ....why would you need anything more?
