Default Big COC heads?

Been looking at either Simmons 135gr Landsharks or the Silverflame Redline XL for a big cutting head. Does anyone have any experience with either, or have something else I should check out?

I have been very happy with the 1-9/16Ē cut Simmons Tigershark. Entry on my Golden Wildebeest.

Did you have any issues with them not spinning true or tuning issues with it being a big head like that?

not on spinning. but, I am trying some different fletchings. the blazers no problems. the Vantec 1.5hp had a problem. now maybe my tune is off. or the vanes just couldn't handle it. it is done with 4 vanes. ill look at increasing the foc just to see what happens but I am reaching a point of being underspined. I may have to look at a different way to test. I may just get the standard redline 125 and see how they fly.

I'd probably fletch them up with a 4 fletch Predator(basically a Blazer) or maybe some 3" feathers in a 3 fletch helical.

with a good tune, I would say no problems with that.

So tuning concerns. I have the 1.5" wide steelforce big phat heads. With a bareshaft, nock tuned arrow, 100 yards - perfect.
It's a tuning thing.

I have had a few crunches on some bigger hogs where it appeared the wide head caused penetration.
Enjoy your big COC.
