What are your guys favorite broadheads? I am looking to try a new broadhead this year. I want to shoot 175 grain heads. I like the look of the two blade single bevel grizzlies but not sure I want to go as narrow as 1" for deer.

I like anything VPA makes...pricey but well made and a lifetime warranty. I had a 3 blade screw in that didn't spin 100% true. It shot fine though. I mentioned that head to VPA in an unrelated email and 3 days later I got a new 3 pack in the mail! I didn't ask for it to be replaced (let alone 3 new heads!), I just wanted them to know about it because I have been on a hunt with the owner and I know he is all about quality control. VPA also makes Cutthroat broadheads for RMSG and they are the easiest to sharpen single bevel head that I have owned. Good luck in your search for a new broadhead! Mike

I have used the Eclipse Werewolf Single Bevel in 175 grains for deer, boar, and gator. It is an underrated head.

Zwickey Delta is 175g in a screw-in model. Zwickey is a time-tested, time-proven head. Tough as nails. And you can buy two 3-packs of them (or more) for what several other heads cost for 3.

Right now it's 3 blade vpa but have also used Magnus stingers with good success and I'm gonna be trying some grizzlies this year so that might change!

The ONLY BH I use are 235 gr. Grizzly Kodiaks right bevel with a 75 gr. steel adapter. The past 4 years have taken 2 moose, bull elk, whitetail buck, 3 Javelina and 2 hogs ....... so far. My personal "Best Buy".

Actually anything Grizzly makes is going to be great. Haven't tried the 3 blade Instincts but have heard good things about them.
