Default What grimreaper broadhead

Shooting 64lbs at 30" compound. What would be the best grimreaper for deer, the 100 grain 1 3/8" or the 1 3/4".

Good Question. I know you can readily get the 1 3/8" in your bow shops even Cabela's has them. I hoping my local bow shop get the 1 3/4" cut tomorrow as I would like to try them myself. After reading reviews and listening to people at the bow shops, they all seem to like the Grim Reaper over the T3 and Rage.

BB, just to let you know I ordered the 1 3/4" version and I shoot a 62lb compound with 29" arrows.

I shoot 29" DL at 64lbs with 100grn 1-3/8ths cut GR RazorCut. LOVE THEM!!!!
Have taken over 45 deer, hogs and Catalina Ram and bear without a single loss due to them. I lost a deer last year, 1st one ever to not go home that day with me, and it was due to me missing the entry lung, too high, but took out opposite side lung. No exit, hit opposite shoulder socket and stayed inside.

I bought a pack o the razor tip 1 3/4 cut with a 28.5 inch draw and 65 lb pull and I have blown threw every shoulder I've hit I would say definitely go with the 1 3/4 or even the 2 inch whitetail special

I have looked at the 2" cut and feel that if you are not shooting a heavy arrow, over 500grns, and/or heavy poundage, it will work against itself. I have seen how the 1-3/8ths cut has done on many animals and am very pleased with its performance.
I used to shoot 425grn total, BlackHawk Vapors with a 100grn GR's. I now shoot a 345 grn total, GT Velocity XT 400 with a 100 grn GR. I have seen the loss of real "Blow Throughs" like I did with the heavier arrow.
I as well am not a real fan of the RazorCut, the one with the razor blade in the tip nose itself. I have shot several deer and hogs with it to find it to follow a bone instead of blowing through it and exit at a funny angle. Unlike the angle it entered.

I am a fan of the 2 blade rage and the 2" Grim reapers. This year alone myself and other employees have taken 3 bear and 6 deer all with the 2" GR's. Farthest recovery was about 150 yards. BUT as others have said unless you are shooting a set up that has a large amount of KE then I wold not recommend this head.
