I've been checking out the Eclipse Werewolf line,but unfortunately nothing quite in the range you mentioned. They do have some on both sides of it though.

Another vote for the RMS Cutthroats, they are solid heads all around. I have some Valkyrie Bloodeagles on the way that I'm looking forward to trying also.

I would recommend helix if you must have a screw in design. Although I've been shooting 225 gr grizzlies for the past two seasons by adding the appropriate weight insert.

Without knowing what arrow you are shooting I will add that if it's something with a fully threaded insert like a standard Goldtip or carbon express, you can add a 7/8 8-32 setscrew to the back of the inserts for about$3 per dozen. Theses weight 26 gr and open the door for 200 gr heads like the cutthroat.

I'm going into the woods with the new Bonebroadheads. They're only out in 125 or 200, so like Cutthroats you'd have to either add a little weight or adjust your length to compensate. Cutthroats are another good option, I just like the idea that the shape ofvthe Bonebroadhead puts the weight a little further foreward.

My thoughts exactly. Have done this myself and the ones I weighed were 228gr.

Hard to beat the 185 Grizzly on a long al adapter.
I can get the Grizzlies scary sharp!

If anyone has some 185 Grizzlies on long Al adaptors that I could try let me know. I'll start there and test for accuracy then if they shoot well for me build some dedicated shafts for them with all my heads oriented horizontal at my natural level of cant.

Thank you sir. PM sent. I'll have it back in the mail to you within a couple days of getting it in and sending it through my Block foam target to verify that they hold point of impact for me. If it flies right for me then I'll order a dozen and have them ready by opening day.

I have had great results with the Abowyer Brown Bear and the titanium insert. And, although I haven't tried the 225 yet, the Tuffhead 250s are darned good and pretty darn sharp right out of the pack!
