I'd shoot whatever flies truest...everybody will have an opinion and a different answer for you but I suspect the big names people will call out are the Rage Broadhead (expand), Swhacker (expand), Spit Fires (expand), Exodus (fixed), or I've been shooting Wasp Jak-Hammer (expand) and they do fine.

I first started with Slick Trick Magnums. They flew pretty good, then I just wanted to try mechanicals so I got some Meat Seekers.
Just get something not too expensive in case they dont work then go from there.

Find something that flys well out of your equipment and that you have confidence in. I use to shoot Grim Reapers and killed a lot of deer with them, then one day I was testing the blades just like I do every time before I nocked the arrow and one of the blades started to stick. I changed arrows and it was fine but I started to have doubts and worried about a blade or two not opening so i switched to Muzzy. It works for me but there are a lot of good broadheads that work great

I actually shoot tekkens but my buddy shoots rage. I saw him drop a 10 point that went about 40 or 50 yards before hitting the dirt. The rage broadheads seem to put a huge hole in the deer and fly true.. only draw back is they are pretty pricy

Muzzy 3 blade. They will always be "open" just in case you get buck fever ;\)
Archers see how far away they can hit a target, Bowhunters see how close they can get to theirs.
