I've been shooting zwickey broadheads since I started shooting a trad bow 5 seasons ago. After killing a few deer with the eskimo and the delta last year I'm shooting a heavier point for next season and a 125 standard and a 75gr steal adaptor will give me exactly what I'm after plus
i've read ace has been around a really long time

Ace are great heads, IMO. They have been in continuous production longer than any other heads. I'm particularly fond of the 165 gr Express, but they're all very good.

Sorry, but is there a typo? Eskimos weight 125 also, and the Deltas weigh 130, so the Deltas would still be heavier with the same adapter.

Thanks.

160 for the eskimo and 170 for the deltas I am after a 200gr head and the ace standard 125gr with a 75gr adaptor will work for the weight I am after I'm also mounting on carbon shafts

thanks Mike

Umm the glue on Eskimos are 125 grains and the glue on Deltas are 130 grains with the adapter you mentioned the Eskimos would come in at 200 and the Deltas 205

The Ace Standard is a great broadhead. They are easy to sharpen, fly great, tuff as nails, come in 125,135,145 and 160 grains and are reasonably priced. If you have never tried them, you need to get'ya some! [thumbsup]

Bob Mayo who owns and runs Ace is an awesome guy. He majes a great broadgead that has been around for very long time, if not mistaken Roy Case first designed it. I have used Ace with a few ithers over the years and can sum it up this way. 3 years ago, I took a hog, turkey and two deer with same broadhead and still have it. They are tough, keep a good edge, fly great and hone up quick.

I used a 75 gr steel adaptor and an Ace standard [125 gr] to kill the bear in my Avatar Carbon Express shaft and a 45# bow........pass thru and a dead bear in 10 seconds. I like them, easy to get sharp and they fly well.

I’ve shot the Ace standards for years in 160 grain. I mostly use the 40 grain aluminum adapter. They are extremely tough heads.
I like a total weight of 200 grains. I’m not sure what would be a stronger set up. A 160 head with a 40 grain aluminum adapter or a 125 grain head with a 75 grain steel adapter. When I asked Bob Mayo, he really didn’t know.

I have killed dozens of animals without a failure and some of the heads have taken multiple animals. Good luck.

I've been strongly pondering buying some Ace Standard broadheads as well... Like Zwickey (and Eclipse), they have super stout 3-layer tips.

The only concern I have is about sharpening them adequately with the convex edge shape vs a straight edge...

I have no problems hand sharpening my knives (dozens) to a hair-popping, mirror gleam but broadheads pose more of a challenge to me for some reason.
