i wouldn't do second hand. grizzlystik.com has some 200 grain samurai broadheads on sale for 12 a piece. A 200 grain single bevel will cut through a deer so fast that your arrow will explode when it hits a rock 6 inches under the ground.

ALSO don't worry about the grizzly broadheads coming apart. The aluminum insert might fail but the broadhead won't. I've shot them through 4 pieces of cow femur and they were still straight.

Yea, I was sure about second hand . I have attempted to purchase the $12.00 Samurai & which results in a message not currently avaiable more than once.
Been close to pulling the trigger on Grizzly stick couple times as well & still looking to learn A bit more B4 pulling the trigger. Also curious who may have tried this and for whatever reason did not like it?

Not just the head that matters, it's the whole package. You might have to up your spine to shoot 200 grain heads if you are shooting the normal 100-125-150 grainers. For a 45 lb bow I would aim for a 400-450 grain finished arrow. My recurves are 53-65 lb, and my arrows are just under 550 grains. Blows thru deer like a knife thru butter, I have some single bevel heads but have not shot anything with them. Last deer I shot with a Zephyr "Sasquatch" which is a double bevel 1.5" wide two blade head with a bleeder insert. Can't remember if bleeder was in or out on that one. Buck was quartering about 30-35 yards away and arrow penetrated from rear ham to opposite shoulder. Buck before that, broadside shot at 15 yards with Wensel Woodsman 3 blade, shot thru and stuck in ground behind him.

Grizzlystick.com has lots of info. I use Carbon Express Piledrivers which are about 9.5 gpi if I recall correctly. Hoping to use grizzlystik's this year, the shaft sans head is 450 grains with 200 grain head added.

when my son when he was young i made my son use only expandable broadheads just because expandables are safer since the blade is not exposed,i had enough worry with my young son son a tree alone,but he did do fine and now prefers a long bow and Zwickey eskimo hand sharpened broadheads.
