Need some input. My carbon arrows weigh 10.6grains and are 27"long. Add 15grain for nock, 15grain for insert, 15grain for 3-2"blazer vain and I got a total of 331.2grain. I need input on which Slick Trick broadhead I should use the 85grain for a total of 416.2 or the 100grain for a total of 431.2. I shoot an 08Martin Cheetah with 28"draw set at 70# and will use this for deer. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

I prefer the heavier, slightly better penetration and stability but with 70lbs on deer either should be fine. You may want to calculate your FOC (Front of Center) and see where each one puts you.

Figured my foc and the 125grain put me at 10.6% so went and bought some 125 field tips and they fly alot better. Thanks for the input!
