Mechanicals opening mid flight?

Hi everyone,

I have a question that i hope I can get an answer to, maybe by personal experiences.

I have been shooting a Horton Fury for a few years now with 100 gr. Muzzy Trocar tips with excellent success. I recently bought a Ghost 410 and I am wanting to try a mechanical such as NAP Spitfires. These do not require a collar to deploy upon impact and are rated for a crossbow but my question is: will they open mid flight using a bow with a velocity such as that of the Ghost 410?

As long as you shoot the crossbow version you will be fine. Their retention system is stiffer than the regular Spitfires. I shot them close to 400fps. Very accurate and dependable broadhead.
bohunr and Bigbrownie like this.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I really like NAP's, you shouldn't have any problems.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4- Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day.
