Mechanicals tough enough for moose?

I scored an archery moose tag for this coming fall. The last time I got this particular permit was in the 90’s and prior to the mechanicals of today. Are the newest mechanicals robust enough to stand up an animal as large as a moose, with much heavier ribs than deer or elk. Last time I was successful using old tried and true Zwickey broadheads that passed thru the chest and impacted and broke a rib on the far side of the chest. He piled up about 75 yards from where he was first hit. I’m curious as to people’s thoughts.

Todays mechanicals should be tough enough for Moose but I wouldn't chance it. I'm only shooting 65 lbs but the Serv would be one of the few mechanicals I would use.
