150 grain heads
Who has a 150 grain head they like my wife is currently shooting 150 grain Northerns but it’s fun to test new things.
I shoot the Magnus I, 4 blade it is 150 grains and 1 1/2" wide, but they are no longer being made since Thunder Valley bought the Trad line from Magnus then went out of business.
Another good one is the Magnus Stinger 150 grain head and I shoot them occasionally.
I've got some 150gr solid Iron Wills that are awesome. 150gr. Phatheads are decent as well, but I don't like the, as much as the IW's and the Phatheads are a pain to take apart to sharpen.
I like the 150 gr Ozcut Ultra 4. Has blade over shaft technology like a QAD in 4 blade cut.
I like the looks of that ultra 4 didn’t know they made that one in 150 grain. I’m pretty sure anything that comes from iron will is going to be pretty much awesome, need to look at phatheads though not sure Iv heard of them.
150 cut throats for me. I’ve got 280 up front all together
She had to go to 225 upfront to get her arrow flying right, 75 grain inserts and 150 grain heads.
Take out those weighted inserts and go straight to a 200 grain with 25 grain arrow insert! VPA makes awesome 3- and 2- blades and the 200-grain Cutthroat is great as well. The 150’s in both brands are great as well.
That will likely be the way we go on her next arrows treeline.
I really like the longer cutting surfaces on the heavier point weights! For what you are doing, I might look at tuning an arrow for a 250-300 grain point weight to get a really long cutting surface with better length to width ratios. Will penetrate better than a short stubby point.
I shoot 150 gr three blade unvented VPA's. Love them.
I set up a lot of my compound friends with the 150 gr three blade unvented VPA's and they all love them too.
Oz cut ultra 4 150 grains ...they are one sale now too...
I have (3) 150 gr. 3-bld. VPA solids I'd be willing to sell. Like new, only shot into a target a couple times.
I shoot the 150 grain Magnus Stinger 4 blade out of one of my bows.
In my true Minnesotan lexicon "these ones": http://www.lancasterarchery.com/magnus-stinger-broadheads-150-gr-4-blade.html
I agree that 3 blade VPA 150 grain heads are nice or go with 50 grain insert and 175 grain VPA. I shoot both extensively. Shawn
150gr Samurai single bevel fro Alaska Bowhunting Supply.
She’s going to try out those vpa’s from Midwest to start. If they workout maybe she can send one through a bull this fall. It’s very impressive to me what a heavy arrow can do even from her 24 inch 50# draw.
150 grain Cutthroats have been real nice!
My wife shoots 100 grain Shwacker Razors with a 50 grain insert
Just drive an hour West and shoot some Cutthroat's at rmsgear! You could probably go there and try before you buy! A few of my compound toting buddies are shooting them with great success!
You guys that shoot the VPAs, do the solids fly as well as the vented ones?
I can't answer that, I have never shot the vented heads, only shot the 125 & 150 grain unvented.
As long as your bare shafts fly perfect and you match the tip weight on your fletched arrows, and head will fly good. I'm not like most guys, tune and put the weight in my insert. I want the tip of the arrow solid and strong, and then use 125 grain Van Dieman's. I can match field points, judos, anything in the 125 grain weight will fly perfect. My ex used to kill elk either 50 pound bows, 27" inch arrows and 100 grain Muzzy's. It's sell about arrow setup. 225 grains up front on the short arrows means she's got a very high foc.
She’s shooting a 27” Easton axis 400 spine, 75 grain insert, and 150 grain head out of the woman’s version of the hour powermax 24 inch draw at #53.
