I strongly suggest a Zwickey No Mercy for your chosen bow.

I think any good 2 blade 125 grain head that you can get razor sharp . Preference would be Silver Flames, super sharp right out the pack, durable and easy to resharpen.

Not that you need my vote as well... but as suggested, the Zwickey "No Mercy" would be my choice for your given set-up. They need to be SUPER sharp. I bet that is gonna be no problem for a Down East-er like yourself.  :bigsmyl:

I actually really disliked the Zwickeys.   I only used the eskimos but, my issue was with the hardness of the actual steel. I suspect that they keep the steel soft so that it can be sharpened with a file but, they didn't hold an edge well at all.
   I now shoot grizzly single bevels, and I'm liking them much better.

Zwickey Eskimo 2 blade would be my first choice for your set up, with Zwickey Eskilite 2 blade, No Mercy and ACE Standard 2 blade as   close runner ups.

G Cook...

I got some of the 150gr Piledrivers for Turkeys. I like the way they fly and have been able to get them very sharp.

For a light set up I don't think you can beat grizzly's!

Zwickey No Mercy with that light of a bow I too would strongly suggest.

Longer length but same width as eskimos so it has a better angle of attack.

With that light of a bow you are going to need all the attack angle you can get and with a non tanto tip.  At that weight a tanto becomes a detriment....its not going to blow through bone and will use more energy at point of impact.

Best of luck to ya.....:campfire:

I'm going to be shooting a Magnus 4-blade 150 grain (it has a small bleeder) with a 41 Lb Morrison Shawnee this Fall.
These heads come sharp and seem to penetrate very well. (I also use a 100 grain brass or steel insert).

last year my son shot a large bodied 9 pointer from 9 feet up and 20 yards or so out with a 47 pound Hill style Big River on Howard Hill's birthday.  Blew a rib going in and rib going out with the single bevel No Mercy on a Sherwood.  He could not believe how far his arrow was stuck in the ground.  After he dressed and tagged the buck, he dug a hole to get his arrow back.  Buried up to the ferrule in a tree root, but the ornery bugger got his complete arrow back with no damage to the arrow, but the tree suffered a bit. On the other hand I have field dressed good number of deer killed with  standard Eskimos from 36 and 38 @ 26" bows, they don't have penetration issue on whitetails either.
