Default 100gr vs. 125gr

What are your feelings about 100gr vs. 125gr broadheads. Who prefers one over the other and what are the advantages/disadvantages?

Well it's like sleeping with my wife at 100 lbs and 125 lbs. Just a little heavier when she's on top

I believe in shooting a hunting arrow with12% minimumFOC. When available I prefer 125 grain heads, but shot the 100 grain Grizz Trick this year on the new Aramid shafts fletched with feathers and my FOC was well over my minimum of 12%.

100gr<125gr The 125 head is heavier. Thats about all that I think.

I like a little more weight for penetration, at least that's how I justified the 125s.

A lighter broadhead can make a shaft act stiffer if you're having problems with tuning your arrows.

One thing to consider is your setup for hunting different species. I hunt whitetails and elk, so to make it easier, my bowand arrow setup is geared heavy enough to take elk, which means a 125 gr. head,which will slice through a buck like hot butter.

I'll use either tip weight depending on tune; I'll use the one that tunes best.

Depends on the arrow you choose and what you're trying to accomplish. To me, I like a heavy arrow and I like a heavy FOC. To get the proper balance and consistancy I want it's always going to be a 125 unless I go to a lighter arrow(which I won't). It'a a balance between shaft and broadhead. If you select an arrow that's too weak, you may have to go with the lighter head to maintain the spine. If you go with too stiff an arrow you'd probably have to go 125 to weaken the shaft a little. You don't select a head weight to just beable to shoot that head weight or have a heavy head. You select it to balance the arrow with your bow and get the best performance for what you're trying to accomplish.
