Had to buy a crossbow this year as wear and tear on my shoulders and elbow prevent me from pulling back a bow anymore. I didn’t have any idea what type of blades to purchase so I bought based on results from hunting videos. These blades I got from my Barnett crossbow are super lethal. Had a hard quartering away shot at an 8 pointer and the blade cut 4 ribs on entry near back of rib cage and cut 2 ribs cleanly on exit in front of far shoulder and buried in the ground. Needless to say the buck piled up after 40 yds of snowplowing. My son shot a big doe with a facing shot and the arrow skewered the full length of the deer before exiting near the anus.
They are deadlier than a bullet as the large cutting diameter allows for some room for error.
