I run the same arrow/broadhead setup I use for whitetail. I'm not loyal to one particular brand or type of broadhead. I like to play around with different ones. Last year, I had mechanicals (Hypodermic) and fixed (Exodus) in my quiver at the same time. I've killed hogs with both types and can't tell you one performed any better or worse than the other. If I did my job and put the arrow where it needed to be, the broadheads did their job and made the hog bleed.
For context, I'm shooting 70lbs (actually 72lbs on the scale), 30" DL and roughly 450gr TAW. I haven't found a critter yet that I can't run either a mechanical or fixed blade broadhead through, as long as I do my job.
I usually go with Muzzy 3-blades or G5 Montecs. The name of the game is getting as close as possible (if you're stalking them). If you're within 20 yards and have a good shot placement, the broadhead doesn't matter too much.
Honestly a lot of them will work. The main thing is do not shoot to far back. Go straight up from the front leg, and don't shoot low and hit the leg, shoot above the front leg or not very far behind it. And stay with broadside shots whenever possible. Quartering shots can be more problematic. Magnus Black Hornet with a bleeder is a pretty good standard. Simmons Mako....but they are out of stock...I shot a couple with the Slick trick Viper trick this year, and it really penetrates good and flies good . Killed a few with the Magnus Stinger buzzcut with bleeders and it always worked well. Simmons Landsharks. I think all things considered I like having at least a bleeder blade. If you shoot them in the wrong place it won't matter much, a bad shot on a hog is nearly unrecoverable. You have to drop their blood pressure or run them out of air, or they go and go and go. And they can hide in thick cover like a rabbit.The hair will soak up a lot more blood then you would think.
I'd use Magnus Stinger Buzzcut 4-blade 150's because I already have them, and they go on the VAP's I have my backup bow tuned to shoot. I know they'd take out any big hog quickly. VAP shafts are cheaper to build arrows with than the VAP TKO's I shoot in my primary bow. Hog hunting is often a recipe for destroying arrows.
As stated above, any quality broadheads would work.
