Stickbowhntr... My main interest in this little study was to get a feel for broadhead popularity as regards bow weight preference.

What I did see, from the responding members, was that most of the above 60# shooters seemed to be more confident with penetration from there bows... picked larger and multibladed heads.

Also, since I'm familiar with the history of many of the above 60# group, it seems that more experienced hunters chose slightly heavier bow weights... again, remember this is a VERY small cross section of members.

It also seemed that as bow weight dropped, so did the popularity of the 3 to 1 ratio heads... which I found very interesting.
