You will get recommendations for 100 different broadheads (let me be the first to recommend slick trick magnums 100g.).

All I have to say is find one quick and start shooting with it, the season is only a few weeks away.

My arrow is a bit different, but I shoot 31" draw, 65 lb. I used rage 3 blade 100g for the last few years, shot a couple deer with them, both pass throughs.

I switched to slick trick magnums this year to give them a try, shoot well with my bow, no deer shot (yet) with those.

I chose the slick trick magnums because they are a fixed blade (less chance of failure), they fly exactly like my field points, and I hope to get pass through shots due to the smaller head (better blood trails).

I guess bottom line is that there are a lot of good broadheads out there, and a lot of threads on this site discussing pros and cons of a lot of them.

I think the most important thing is to be sure that you can shoot your broadhead accurately, any broadhead will work with good shot placement.

I'm shooting 125 grain slick trick mags and/or 125 grain viper tricks on my fmj's.

Any broadhead that you can get to fly right. They all do the same thing--slice. If you do have trouble getting anything to fly I'm going to suggest that for 70# and 31" your 340 arrows are underspined so don't expect miracles.

The 340's are what my local shop recomended.. i thought the easton charts saud 300. The 340 are the stiffest they carried. I am going to try to paper tune this weekend and will look for signs of being under spined. Thanks..

125 grain RamCat broadsheads works great for my buddy with the exact same setup.

Hey, I grew up in Bratt. and currently live in Hinsdale!! Could be wrong but wouldn't you be better off with 100 gr. head if spine is on weak side? Iv"e had great luck with Slick Trick standards.
