I recently got ahold of a new broadhead to try, The Big Game Head from Centaur archery. Here are a few Pics of a deer I shot with one. It was a single bevel and the deer was shot at about 20 yds from a stand with a 48 at 28 longbow.

For some reason I cannot post the pics here, so here is a link to the gallery. Let me know if it doesnt work. http://forums.huntin..._album&album=88

They are pretty new, I just happened to hear about them through some connections. It does take some skill to sharpen the concave shape but it is not impossible.

I was looking at those and boy the cut of that broadhead from edge to edge looks large. How wide is the blades?

They are pretty large. Length 2 7/8 in. Width 1 3/4 in. and the weight is 180 grns. They are pretty heavy but fly great out of my longbow which pulls 48 at 28.
Though the size does lessen the penitration some it helps to make even a marginal hit lethal. Which I have seen in person. If you look at the pics I posted it was actually not the best shot and I am not proud of it. Despite that, the deer only ran about 20 yds before dropping and left a very heavy blood trail.
