    but a kool thing a world renowned archer/bowhunter John Dudley stated why change the rest if you are getting consistent groups irrelevant if they don't hit by the field points just adjust your sight ..sounded logical to me ..and on question number

    2) I have watched a guy by the name of Tim Wells who shoots compound no peep no pins smoke a mulie deer at 100 yards (on the run) ..it ran on for another 50yrds before keeling over ..

    also because there are so many variables I suppose like calibre of ammo and rifle in relation to length, weight and type of broadhead in bowhunting it has the momentum to still be affective out to 200m (gravity plays its part) but this is all done by research and theory as I have not come across someone who has dropped a deer at that distance ..

    the main reasons we don't have a scope for that distance and because you are having to hold the bow still in the air without having the ability to prop it against or on something the wind plays a major factor in been able to maintain composure for that distance

    But with bow design these days we are having the ability to shoot further distance with great accuracy efficiency and being able to pull more weight (not that pulling more weight is a necessity) but pulling 70lb bow 5 yrs ago you had to be a gym junkie were as these days it feels like pulling 50lb because of cam efficiency riser design limb advances so yea that is what I've come to understand ..

    For me anything 20-30m is child's play even with the heart pumping 40-50 I'm very confident 60-70m is where the confidence is above average only because I am not practicing out to that distance and beyond ..well not yet anyway, but Cameron Hanes (pro bowhunter) doubles his distance @ practice ..so he practices 160 yards to feel extremely confident that he is smashing x's at 80 yards

    there maybe others out there with a different opinion but that's what makes the world an exciting and fun place ..as we are humans not robots ..apologies if it's a long reply

    The only problem with helix heads is bloodtrail isn't the greatest. But if you are one to smash through bone to get the spot you want to hit they can't be beaten. They absolutely tear bone apart.

    Someone got your tune up on the bow right from the start as binary cams can be a bitch sometimes to get good broadhead flight. I'm a big fan of bowtechs overdrive binary cam system for that reason.

    From my limited knowledge of 'stick hurling', every article I've read talks about this goal.
    At 300-350 fps launch speed, power factor won't be readable - too slow.
    Stalking skill and arrow placement is the trick.
    Actually "power level" being read in archery is kinetic energy and momentum. Most bullets will fail vs an arrow in the momentum part of the equation.

    Hey my bro ..KiwiMaoriBoii69 (archery talk) here ..mean to see you comment on this post dude and give you impressions on the helix ..I'm a fan of the wasp fixed blades ..only owned the hammer broadhead but realise the rest would be just as pin point accurate ..also would def like to check out the grim reaper but was keen on seeing how these pan out ..I cannot get out as much as I would like so trying to put it out there to see how they go ..loving the Deer crossing SD hunter shafts as I have owned axis as well ..what you shooting anyway ..whole set up that is

    I've gone away from the goodies bro. Shooting compound barebow these days (ala Tim wells) ive had to many bows lol I just got some of those sika stopper arrows to trial out. So if you want to have a jam on those give me a yell. Same diameter as the SD hunters.

    the bow is fine as I have shot it out of my Bowtech fuel as well @ 70lbs with the same results ..plus the whisker biscuit will be a great test for fletching (glue adhesion) ..how often do you get out? And when your out hunting do you have a posey that claims great success?? Only reason why I ask is for results bud to see if they are a good build or not ..

    Personally I know they are awesome flyers (as the vid demonstrates) but wanting feed back on deer recovery ..how they performed in the field as I cannot get out all the time (even though would love too) because of varying other commitments ..wanting someone to test it sooner than later if you catch my drift ..

    Hi kiwi ninja, I am getting my bow back from a full restring next week. To I ll take a look at those measurements and report to you. I will definitely be out most weekends during the roar. I will also go on a fallow place around the 10 th of March for some action. I usually shoot a 340 shaft with 125 muzzy.
