Sorry but I havn't used the broadhead you are asking about but I thought i'd share my opinion of expadables in general. I am not a fan of expandables of any type. Others swear by them. To each their own. I see it as just another thing that can fail in the MOT and I've personally had a rage skip off a quartering away shot and passthrough issues, so I have a bad taste for mechanicals. The lack of a passthrough def could hinder your bloodtrail. I shoot G5 montec boadheads and I have always had good blood trails and pass-through's and I never have to worry about blades breaking or catching a limb or brush and premature deploying a blade. Like everyone always says, nothing will make up for a poor shot and there has been plenty of deer killed with each. Good luck.
