Assuming that they all shoot equally well, I would suggest you go with the one that you have the most confidence in. For me, that would be the one that I could sharpen the best.

The edge bevel on a three blade is more obtuse than on a two-blade head so it's just not possible to get them as sharp. But, you can get them plenty sharp to kill an animal.

Because of the larger bevel angle, the edge on a three blade is less likely to turn over than it is on an acute angle bevel two blade head, which can actually turn over before it gets into the goodies.

Long story short, any of the heads you're considering will do the job. Shoot the one you like.

I'd check the VPA on my fingernail and if it passes that then Id use that,,, I've got some crazy blood trails from heads that didn't shave hair..

I like and hunt with 2 blade also but I have had some lack luster blood trails with 2-blade heads I could have shaved with but good thing for me in my world when I hit a deer with a two blade it doesn't seem to run off as crazy and sometimes just stops and looks around then falls over,,, 3 blades they explode out of there..

IDK part of me says VPA and part of me says shoot that razorhead now.
