Tons of great choices out there but could you give us some stats first ?!? What draw weight and arrow are you shooting so we can offer the best suggestions possible.

+1 vote for the 100 gr. two blade rage it works well for me. And it flies like a field tip so no tuning necessary.

i like the O ring, the blades basically have to open with the design of the rage, there isnt much room to fail with them.

Shooting a 55 pound bow you would be a fool to use a Rage or any other large cut mechanical broadhead. These broadheads require gobs of energy to smash and cut through bones and you aren't gonna have it.

You really need a moderate to smaller diameter fixed blade broadhead. Slick trick standard cut, Magnus stinger, NAP nitron, G5 montec, Shuttle T-lock, NAP hellrazor, Muzzy phantom MX, Wasp BOSS bullet would all be excellent choices.

Muzzy Phantom MX. Fixed blades are the way to go for me.
