Default LARGE diameter mechanicals

I read a story last year that Bob McNally wrote concerning the large diameter cutting mechanicals... the 2 1/2 inch ones Gametracker Stilletos- He spoke HIGHLY of these... He liked them because of large entry wounds ( 1" minimum I recall) and the obvious huge exit wounds, he talked a lot about the pass through abilty....

ANY comments people ? 5 shot ??

I personaly prefer mechanicals of moderate cutting diameter, no more than 1 3/4" at most. I want a complete pass through and the smaller heads help ensure that with good shot placement and proper bow tune.

I agree 5shot... however.... have you tested those heads ?? Id love to see that . Bob really liked them a lot... wish I had the article still, it made me consider them a lot..... I was wrong on the brand - they were VORTEX brand - 2 3/4 inch.... he mentioned pass throughs on deer and hogs...was a VERY interesting article and it surprised me....

Ill buy em if ya wanna test em !

Also, have you tested the Grim Reapers yet ? I have a box of those too.....

I can say the rocket buckblasters (2 3/4" Cut) do a very nice job! I shot 3 deer with them & have yet to lose one! Not to mention they make one huge hole!!! Personaly I would not say anything bad about the buckblasters!
