    1-1/8" single bevel is not what I'm looking for. Like about 95% of us, I'm hunting whitetail, not large tough game that requires max penetration. If penetration is an issue for anyone hunting whitetail, you've got bigger problems than broadhead selection.

    Never heard of these before. 1-1/2" cut main blade with 1-1/8" bleeder would be NASTY.

    I’m liking them so far! The come decently sharp out of the package but I used a stay sharp jig and it worked well. They fly good and are quiet. I’m interested to see how they do on a deer.

    I was looking at the 175 grain Matrix double bevel.

    You like yours so far?

    Thanks for the offer, but I’m looking to start using something still in production.

    I dig the Simmons, I’ve had great success with them on two different trips to Africa and they have worked great for me on NA game as well. The cut is nothing short of devastating and they have resulted in a lot of short tracks over the years.

    I'm cheap. I can't pay $30/head, especially when the GS version of SF is said to be of lesser quality.

    OP, Simmons heads are nice, but a pain to sharpen, and keep sharp. The RC is too low, and they dull easily in the quiver.

    Regarding other options, you can get a 1 3/8" Zwickey Delta, or 1 7/16" Ace Super Express





    Also worth considering the Magnus Black Hornet 4 blade. It's a mean head, and it will cut a big hole for a good price.

    Or... you could switch to a three blade like VPA.

    Personally, I prefer 3 and 4 blade heads. And I love the IW wides because they get scary sharp, and STAY scary sharp. All the cheaper heads I've used require touch ups frequently.
    The Ace would be a contender, but I want a screw in. I guess I forgot to mention that part.

    I like the black hornet, shoot them out of my compound.

    I don't mind sharpening heads that lose their edge after a few shots, so that's not an issue for me, as long as I can sharpen them. That's why I'm leery about Simmons. After looking at the Alien archery stuff a bit more, the price is higher than I want to go, but it is a 6 pack, and the blade shape is similar to IW, though the steel is not. Maybe they are an option.
