Default best expandable out there?

Thinking about trying them again. I have been sticking to fixed blades for about the last 3 years and was wondering what expandable you guys like.(except rage, been there done that, never again). My favorite expandable back when i shot them was the rocky mountain snypers but have not seen them on the market for quiet some time.

I like G5 tekkans alot. not the T3's or whatever, the tekkans or the tekkan 2's are both good, and i've never had any problems with them

I think the tekan and tekan II have been discontinued so buy up. But I heard they built a 2" 2 blade like the old tekans. I like the grim reaper, big huge hole instead of a gash. You can get them from 1 3/8", 1.5", 1 3/4", and up to 2". They also have different tips for your preference.

Grim reaper teamed up with Mathews and made Mathews edition broadheads. I like the 2" whitetail special, but for someone shooting lower Kenetic energy, I'd choose the 1 3/8". Pass throughs consistently, and although these are mechanicals, they will blow through bone. Absolutely devastating.

I shoot the 1 3/8" chisel tip. I have shot fix blades for about 20 years. Always steered clear of expandables. But as the bows I shot got faster. I started thinking. I did some home work an was watching what the guys at the camp was shooting. Decided to try The Grim Reapers. I picked up two packs an got to the camp late one evening. I put one on a had just enough time to sling a couple at my target. The first one hit just right. The second shot, it was dark enough that I could not see where I hit. The shot was at twenty six yards. I walked to see where it hit an it was just where I aimed. I am very satisfied with their flight. I watched two hogs an a big doe fall within sight of my climber over the next two weeks. Two of the three were complete pass throughs. The other well there was no way it could have been a pass thru.
