Never shot the premiums but the standard ones work great. I have died both 2 blade and 3 bade with excellent results
Thanks, that makes sense. I plan to get the 250 grain to get as much mechanical advantage and FOC as possible without getting "too heavy".OP, keep in mind....Blade hardness doesn't matter as much in a tapered design head. The taper- 2 or 2.5 to 1 puts very little pressure on the blade bevel due to mechanical advantage. Its sliding in...not chopping in like the short wide heads.
Plus, the bevel on the VPA's is more supported due to the 30 deg angle....they don't dull easily. The downside is they don't feel as sharp as the skinny razor blade heads with a very thinly supported bevel.
I shot the VPA Carbon steel heads for years before they came out with the premium and they are bulletproof. The only time I would spend the extra $$ for more temper is on dangerous game like Cape or Water Buffalo.
Mechanical Advantage is the blade angle....you can get that with an 85g head...the weight has nothing to do with it.Thanks, that makes sense. I plan to get the 250 grain to get as much mechanical advantage and FOC as possible without getting "too heavy".

Why do you need more FOC?
...thats for suckers....its all about perfect arrow flight.
Thanks! very useful info.You will see little to no difference between the two broad heads.
The "cheaper models are probably a 4140 type of steel, that is very good material.
I use the S7 only because I am a master toolmaker (and we use the material) and I think I can tell the difference.......
The difference between the 54 and 58 R/c is so small the deer will not know the difference, it will only making the sharpening of the softer steel slightly easier.
The 58 R/c will hold an edge slightly longer and is a little tougher.
Save a little money and get the non premium series, you will not regret it.
