Not in my opioinion

Me and buddies have shot wasp for years and feel if your shooting mechanical wasp you need atleast 70lbs.

I shoot the fixed and they fly great.

Do you mean 70# draw weight or 70# of Kinetic Energy?

Im talking 70lbs KE.

Just my opionion from testing them. We feel that is what you need. I know there are several types of jakhammers and up to 1 3/4" cut. Im not 100% sure what cut is on 100grn. I actually have pack of 75grn jakhammers now I intend to use.

I do know you can shoot them completly thru a 55 barrell drum and they stay intack.

Tuckarch has shot them and experence good luck. Best test is try them and see. I know after one or two deer if broadhead is for me.

I have seen many deer shot with mechanicals and they do work.

2 does to date with 125grain JakHammers @ 55fpe. Both complete double lung pass-throughs.
Switched to 100 grain this year, but cut dia. is the same. Will begin testing Oct. 4 (hopefully :D ).

Rocket21, my 75 grain 1 1/4 inch Jacks pass through with ease and I'm at 60 KE. (Whitetail.) Should be no problem with the 100 grain 1 3/4 inchers. As long as you hit the vitals!! You'll be pulling them out of the ground. Last year I had a pass through on a younger 8 point and I busted his shoulder blade also.

I shoot 60/27 @ 252 fps. If I recall I believe I'm getting around 43# KE. I shot a cow elk on Tuesday at 20 yds. The arrow buried up to the fletching penetrating the back of both front legs and the heart. The broadhead, an 85 gr. Thunderhead, was sticking out the far side. It did not hit any ribs or other bones. She went maybe 60 yards.

Yes it is, and your setup should work great with the Jackhammers. Of course a lot depends on shot placement, but most understand that.
