Default Broadhead Help

I'm new to wood arrows and looking to shoot 200gr.2 blade,glue-on broadheads but having a hard time finding some. My arrows fly just fine with 200gr. points and now want to hunt with them but not till I can find some heads.
Any help(websites,ideas)would be appreciated. Thanks.

Look up Abowyer and you will find some great heads there. Pricey, but very good heads.

Abowery.com is what rubydog meant. You can also check out 3rivers archery (http://www.3riversarchery.com/) or kustom king archery.

Ace are good heads so are the Grizzly El Grande heads buth they are also a single bevel. I have been very impressed with the Abowyer heads but they are not near as expensive as the German Kinetics. Good luck.

What do you see wrong with a single bevel head ? I have had great luck with them over the years. Let me know if I can help in any way..

Not too sold on the tanto tip. I use right wing feathers so does that mean I will need right wing bevel?

Thats what Dr Ed Ashby says.. There is nothing wrong with the Tonto tip as long as it is sharp. I have killed scads of animals and they didn't seem to mind. The last 4 animals that I have killed with them got complete pass throughs. Try the Abowyers and you wont be dissapointed. I will call my supplier tomorrow and see if he has any Ace 200 bheads for you.

Zephyr Sasquatch with a 50 grain brass insert and glue on adapter will put you right on a just above 200gr. These things make a huge hole and do some serious bone damage.
Looks nearly like a Rage hole. 217grains to be exact

Single bevel broadheads shatter bone instead of trying to cut bone , therefore requiring less energy to be spent on bone and more for cutting the good stuff. They are easy to sharpen too. Abowyer heads are not any more pricie than other QUALITY heads out there( less expensive than many that I was considering). After 2 years of shooting them, I think they have performed above and beyond my expectations and cause massive damage. They will make a believer out of you if you shoot anything.

Yes sir, I have used grizzly broadheads every since Jim Abel invented them and with great results. They are a little tricky to get sharp but they are a great head no doubt.

Checked with my supplier and he said that he is out of the 200. He also commented that if he ordered some from Ace now he MIGHT get them in 2-3 weeks as the owner is real slow filling orders. Sorry. You might call Kustom King or the Nocking Point and see if they have them.. Good luck.
