Can you point me in the right direction. I can't seem to find any grizz broadheads with a cutting area of 2.5". Thank you

SlickTrick GrizzTricks. MeanV archery has them. They are a 4 blade with a 1.25'' cutting diameter.

a 2 blade, COI head will give you the absolute BEST penetration qualities without a doubt - and that is proven fact

read Dr Ashby studies on broadheads and arrows etc - its enlightening

What I am saying is, if you have 1 1/8" cutting diameter, you will have 2X that with a 4 blade head. Where with a 2 blade head, and 2" cuttin width, you only have 2" of cutting area. Just look up grizztrick

I know I couldn't have acheived that same performance with a spitfire or rage.
I'd bet you a paycheck my mech could handle that shot on my setup. Still, you're absolutely right - shot placement is critical no matter what.

You think so? I shot spitfires for years in the 90's and aweful performance.

What do you use? Let me guess. Rockets? I know rage won't.

No, not Rockets. I shoot Grim Reapers. When I first started shooting them I wanted to see how tough they really were. I only did the plywood test, but I shot two through some leftover 3/4" oak veneered cabinet grade plywood. They both made it through with all of their blades. They were ruined as far as their movement, but they would have killed the deer on the other side of a shoulder for sure. They are one tough head. They haven't failed me yet and provided they are assembled correctly there's no way for them to fail. I do have to admit, though... I've yet to hit a shoulder to put it to the real test and I don't intend to do so intentionally.

Good point, but it's still fun to participate in a new one once in a while.
