Default Broadhead for bears

I'm going on a spring bear hunt in Newfoundland and was wondering what would be a good broadhead to use. I have used spitfires 125, and I have tried rage and a dozen other broadheads. also what arrow would you recomend for the broadhead. I shoot a lot of deer and I use a cheaper arrow because of the # of deer I shoot.

I like to shoot a good solid broadhead such as the hellrazor 100gr. I have taken a half dozen bears using strykers this spring I am going with the hellrazors. As for arrows I like something on the heavy side 9-11 gpi. Beman and Carbon Express each make good arrows that fit the bill. Have fun

I am a Hellrazor fan all day long!!!! I've shot two mature whitetails and a caribou with them and all three tipped over in sight. I've killed 2 bears with Thunderheads and I can't wait to zip a Hellrazor though one!!!!
Why shoot on the last day what you wouldn't shoot on the first?

Talking I'm a BIG fan of the Slick Trick 125 gr magnum

Plenty of outstanding broadheads, including the Hellrazor as pointed out here. I am a Slick Trick guy because the flight is just exactly like my field tips. I value the bejeebers out of that. I can shoot 20 arrows a day or so with field tip off my 15' elevated deck down to block and 3D bear target at 20, 25, and 30 yards.

Really don't even need to practice with the Slick Trick, though I always shoot a few of those at end of practice. Flight is always dead on.

Took a beautiful chocolate color phase in '08 in Saskatchewan with 125 gr mag Slick Tricks tipped on my Easton Full Metal Jacket arrows. 25 yard shot. Bear went 10 yards, climbed a tree, slid down, died in front of me within 1:00 minute. Filmed the whole gig myself.
