Looks like they are 170 grain? Did you go to a lighter insert of do they shoot alright with that much FOC?

They should leave a heck of a slice thru a bird. LOL.

Yea they're 170, cspot. I've built three different arrows to test. I haven't calculated the FOC yet. I'm thinking the heavier arrow 515 gr. may be the way to go, but won't know until I try them. I'm looking at 20 yards and in. It should knock the snot out of them. Was hoping someone here had experience with them.

Never tried them and always just use a MX3 Muzzy for turkey. I guess for two reasons I just have a lot of them and because I don't use a blind for turkey I tend to miss more than I kill and a Muzzy seems to take a miss well. The last gobbler I killed with a muzzy ripped a six inch hole in him and he never moved.

I luv fixed and hate mechanicals.
I made the switch in 2016 and haven't looked back. If I was still shooting a compound I'd still be shooting fixed blade heads (except for turkey). I prefer the wider cut of the mechanicals on gobblers, and I try to keep the arrow in the bird which seems to work better with mechanicals too.

I think your thought process is right on and those aughta smack the tar out of a bird...and the 3" cut will help hit more vital/spine. It's a tiny target and if you miss, it can be a wild turkey chase....2/3 I've shot with a bow have been a chase...the 3rd, I apparently hit the magic spot. He flipped back onto his back and never flopped or kicked. Over 40 more walked by and never batted an eye. I was just shocked.

Trying a new broadhead this year...NAP FOC 3” cut, 2-blade-expandable specifically designed for turkey's. Anyone ever used them?
Have always used montex 125 gr G5,s for turkeys or deer with great success.... with a compound or crossbow.

20 feet maybe. He marched right up full strut and spittin’ & shakin’ The whole time.
It was only about a 2 minute show. As soon as I showed him the fan he walked right in.
