yo brownie....I Have some NAP splitfire and Shockwaves. I like the the shockwaves. they Splitfires use lil friction pieces to hold the blades in and the shockwave uses an O-ring Behind the blades in a groove in the ferrule.NAP states if the blades are moved out a couple times the friction pieces may not hold the blade from expanding in flight. I use an Aluminum broadhead washer between the head and insert. 2-3 gr maybe? I have killed a couple deer and a Hog spine shot and the head went thru the spine and just bent the blades a lil bit, after blade and o ring replacement put it back in my Quiver. (I have seen a couple other deer shot with the Shockwaves too. There reasonable and can usually picked up at most walmarts that arent urban.Both heads use the same blades, just the ferrule/point/ blade retention is a lil different.
Not dead set on shooting mech., and by the sounds of it ...I may not be able to. I have Nap Thunderheads....but I can't seem to get them to fly well...last year I had no problems...but this year I upgraded arrows....now I can't figure it out....not done trying...but, just heard some good things about mech....and like the idea of field point accuracy....I dead on with my field points. What's the min. speed for shooting mech's? Am I even close to being able to use them?
I don't know where you "experts" come from I have shot a good bunch of deer with a mechanical broadhead with my old Mq1 shooting 222 fps complete pass thrus. As far as I'm concerned....well it doesnt matter what the hell do I know.
