Re: expandables or fixed blades?
For expandables I would go with either the Grim Reaper 1 3/8, 1 1/2, or the NAP spitfire. 50 lbs will have no problem opening them. Just don't go with any larger cut diameter. Both heads are of similar design. Shooting a lighter draw weight doesn't necessarily mean they will fail to open. That's what I like about the design of these heads, it is darn near impossible for something to go wrong with them. Just my opinion, but I would NOT use a rage head.
For fixed blades, I would go with the NAP [censored] Razor. It is a tough cut on contact head that is 1 piece and wicked sharp right out of the pack.
Broadheads, both fixed and expandables can fly differently than field points. You just have to shoot them and see. Generally, expandables tend to be more like field points, but that may not be the case with you.
I shoot Grim Reaper Whitetail Specials with a 2 inch cut and they group as well as fields points out to 65 yds. That is the farthest I have shot them so far.
