In my experience the tolerances from head to head vary greatly and the blade retention system(unless they have improved upon it) sucks.I threw mine in the scrap pile after shooting into a 3-d target .When I pulled the arrows from the target the blades would pop off the ferrule and stay in the target. :thumbs_do
I have shot steal force broadheads into my blob target repeately for a couple of years now and they have never broken. Other broadheads have broken with just a few shots into this target. So from what I can see they should work on the deer.
Supposedly the older heads are pretty good stuff, but the newer ones are not nearly as sturdy. A guy on another forum I talk on used them and loved them, but started having problems a couple years back with durability. He has since switched to Stingers.
