After fiddling with various spine and point weight combinations, it turns out my Baraga really likes #65-70 shafts with 190gr points. 
Has anyone played with the 1.5" wide Abowyer 200gr BoneHead Large Carbon? 
The choice of wide 190 to 200gr glue-on heads is pretty limited.
As I am quite unlikely to hunt anything larger than whitetails and wild boars, the 3:1 heads (Tuffheads, Grizzlys,... ) do not offer much advantage.
Another option would be the Aboyer Wapiti at 1.25".
I know shot placement is the deal-breaker, but I do like the idea of wider heads.

I have shot the brown bear screw in, they are top quality, and razor sharp out of the package. Fairly easy to re sharpen also.

agree with james, an ace standard is pretty hard to beat also...
of course, come over to the dark side and there are some fantastic screw in options

Actually, is a ton of options if you open up to them. A 100 grain woody weight will make any 100 grain broadhead into a 200 grain front, as will adding lead to 160-190 grain heads. Kerp talking here and golks will talk about " other ways".

I’ve had great luck with 190 grain glue on Cutthroat Broadheads

Never used the boneheads, but I like and have killed a few critters with the Wapitis and Brown Bears.  But, like Chuck said, with insert, adaptor and broadhead weight choices, you can put together almost any combination you want to achieve a certain front end weight.

Yes Tim, the "dark side" is always an option.
The weight is one of the factors I am looking for, width is the other.
Some excellent premium screw-in broadheads are indeed available...

Grizzly makes a good single bevel at 200 gr.

There are also screw in adaptors for wood arrows (allows use of screw in points). I use them on my flu flus and think they are fine. They also add just a little to arrow length.
