I use a round wheel pse at 48 pound with carbon arrows and wasp sledgehammer 100 grain ( i think they are called slegde hammers but they are expandables) should i stay with this head or go with a fixed??

Personally, not knowing much more about your setup. I'd say a fixed blade is in order.

With the 48 lb pull you have a low Kinetic energy setup. If I remember right those broadheads have a rather large cutting diameter. If your shot placement is perfect and you don't hit bones you might get a clean kill.

With the lower poundage I would get a smaller broadhead. naildriver is a small mechnical that might work better for you. The ulitmate steel, or muzzy four blades would be good for fixed broadheads.

Fixed would be better

You dont have enough kinetic energy for the expandables. I use the SST fixed, they fly great. I just shot mine in broadhead tournament and did well.

I shoot the 75grn also. They work for me.

Fixed blades are probably your best bet. Good luck and post some pictures of your kills.

Fixed

MattC,I agree with the masses.I think at your poundage you would be better off with a small fixed blade.

They say you need 50 ft lbs of kinetic engery for the expanables to open properly. I know your setup is producing that much.

Go with a fixed. I see where Bear Razorheads come in 100 grains now, that is a good broadhead. I have shot the 145's and the 125's and they did me well.

You might try the new Crimson Talons in an 85 grain. It's a bad looking head, 6 blades altogether.

Or go with the Muzzy, you can't go wrong with it. They make a 75 grain 3 blade.

I shoot the 3 blade 100 grain and it flies just like my field points.:D
