Default New heads

I just ordered some Simmons Swamp Sharks in 175 grain.
New weight for that style in their line up but the brand has a good rep and I've seen some really vicious holes in critters from Simmons heads posted. I bought some arrows that I use 175 grains up front on and the inserts were permanently glued in.

Use a rada sharpener and it takes about a minute to get them sharp about 6$ on Amazon.

I need to send my daughter a link to bbn order one. I used thise to get them sharp when they arrived. They got shaving sharp pretty easy. But I've heard nothing but good things about the Rada so I need to get one asap.

One in my archery box, one in my backpack, one at the house, one in the cabin...

Having the Rada in my bag means I have more than just 4 opportunities when I am just carrying 4 arrows. I've cleaned off an arrow, sharpened it, and used it again all on the same sit.
