These are a pretty good over-the-top expandable. The design tends to bleed some energy off the arrow - so they may not be the best choice for lower poundage bows. And there have been several documented instances where, at severe quartering away angles, one blade will open an cause the entire arrow to turn without penetrating. But, overall, they work pretty well.

bmd,

I shot them for four years. In that time I shot five deer and only got one pass-thru. I did recover all five deer but it just seemed to me when the arrow hit the animal, it, the arrow, just seemed to loose all it's punch. I have switched to muzzys although I am reading a lot of positives about slick-tricks. I may give them a try next year. Hope this helps.

Blessings.....Pastorjim

I shot a turkey with a Spitfire; the bird went about 3 yards after the hit.
I have not used one on a deer yet.

My first two archery bucks fell to Spitfires. They fell hard and fast.That being said, Ihave switched to Scorpion XP's and Steelhead XP's because the last couple packs of Spitfires seemed much stifferand harder to open.

I shoot them...I like them. The damaged done seems to be awsome. I only have experience with spitfires tho.

I used them for a couple years, killed a few deer with them. They got a very stong tip and very sharp blades, no orings. So why did I go back to fixed blade- I decided on a "simplicity" theme for my bow, gear, clothes, and all equipment. I just like a fixed blade solid broadhead, thats all.
