I have tested several models for my website and all have done well to very well. You need a bit more KE than some of the smaller mechanicals, something in the 60+ ft/lbs range to get the best results. The heads overall are strong, sharp and accurate.

I think they are fine for Turkeys, actually a pretty good choice because of ferrule design which would impede penetration to a degree.

IMO there are much better choices in Mechanical broadheads for Deer though.

The vortex was the very first expandable I ever shot. It was way back in the early 90's and they were advertising huge cutting diameters. I killed one deer with one, it did leave a big hole. I only used them that one year, just did not like the o-ring idea. I am sure there are guys out there with more updated information on their newer heads.
