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!!!!

G5 Montec's are tough and can't be beat on big game.

This absolutely typical every time this topic comes up just about every time.

Me I like the G5 Strikers. They have right out of the package very sharp replaceable blades and their small profile makes for good flight. Yet have a 1 1/8" cut. The Magnum VERSION has a 1 1/2" cut and again have all the attributes of the small version.

I've taken two bears and filmed one.....from what I saw, you could kill them with a field point

I agree with FD, a GOOD hit will put a bear down fast if you've got a good sharp head. A bad hit and you'll be cussing yourself (or your guide might be cussing you if you have to track it in some thick stuff!) If you got the k.e. spitfire's would be hard to beat....but a hellrazor would be great for any setup!!!!
