NAP Killzone broadhead on a Ghost 400

I just set my dads crossbow up Ghost 400.. shoots really fast and on a string (as it should).. The owner of Drop Tine Archery suggested 100 Gr killzone 2 blades.. they are the rear deploying, no rubber bands or anything..

all fine and dandy but when i get home i notice on the back of the package it states that you shouldnt use them in a crossbow that shoots over 350 FPS

He personally shoots them out of his ghost he says.. think i can hold him to that if something doesnt function properly? Ive bought a lot from him and i know he wouldnt just give them to me just to make a sale..

wondering your thoughts

NAP is well respected and they do not recommend the killzones fast crossbows as the packaging says. Their testing probably showed a high enough failure rate that called for the warning. Why take the chance, especially in a very fast bow.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I agree with Gene here. I wouldn`t take the chance. Some will, but I owe it to the sport and the game not too.
