      I have been trying to increase my tip weights above 125g. The issue i am having is finding target tips that match the weights of the broad heads i like. For example I like the El Grande Grizzly broad heads witch come in 155g and 185g but i could only find field points in 145g 160g 190g. Does any one know where i can get 155g and 185g field points. Or do you know of a single bevel broad head the would be equal to or better then grizzly that match the field point weights.

      John,

      I had similar issues but with different weights… I found nothing between 145 and 175 in field points.

      However, I did find that there are these 5 gr. brass washers is 5/16 and 11/32 diameter that fit nicely on 8-32 threads for screw in points.

      But adding the few to a 145, I got the 160, same with 175. 3 Rivers and others sell them.

      Unless you have a lathe to turn down your own from heavier, all I found was 100, 125, 145, 175, 200, 225, 250 and 300 gr. field points.

      John, 3 Rivers carries 145, 160 & 190 grain steel glue on field points in 11/32″ and 23/64″. Joe, at Tuffhead has 190, 225, & 300 grain 23/64″ brass glue on field points. Not exactly what you were looking for but hope this helps.

      Do you really think that 5 gr will make any difference?

      Besides the fact that your Grizzly broadheads are longer than your field point and that moves the FOC forward and can change the spine.

      John I’ve been shooting woods for 40 years and that little of a grain difference is not gonna make enough difference to notice and if so your brain, hand, eye trio will adapt in no time.

      I wouldn’t sweat it. Shoot the closest you can find and have fun.

      Howdy John–I sent you a couple emails – one with a page fromThree Rivers about glue on adaptors for wood arrows so you can use any screw in heads you want. I’ve been using them about 3 years on my arrows and my wife’s. Lots of roving and stump shots with no problems.
