Question for those of you who use screw in broadheads with wood arrows. What adapters are you using? The ones I have seen are around 40 to 50 grains which isn't that heavy until you add a heavy broadhead. I like Simmons and have quite a few. All in the 190 gr range. I certainly don't mind the extra weight of the adapter, in and of itself, but overall it makes for a heavier setup than what I'm after. Yes I can buy more heads and completely solve the problem but I'd rather not if I don't have to since I have quite a few screw ins as it is.

3riversArchery has adaptors for screw-ins for wood arrows for 50gr ( ). Bought them, installed them and I decided I don't like them. Why? Unless I paint them the silver surface is annoying when the sun hits it - if you use the arrow as aiming reference.  They will extend the arrow another 1" which in theory is good, but if you don't shoot screw-in fieldpoints too all your memorized gap goes down the drain with a longer arrow for broadheads.

Think about what you're trying to do...
I get that you've got an investment in the broadheads, but do you really want to invest more money into adapters and over spined arrows to accommodate the heavy adapter/heads?
You'll end up with an unsatisfactory combination and none of the parts will will work for you. 
Try to sell the broadheads. If that doesn't work, throw them into the "well that didn't work out so well box" (we all have one) and set your arrows up right. You'll be money ahead...
