I normally shoot 100gr. 3-blade muzzys but this year with all the rage buzz I might try them and I was wondering about speed I have an older bow that only shoots about 270-280 fps is that fast enough or should I stay with the tried and true muzzy?

I personally will not shoot mechanicals of any kind. I think there is a reason they are not allowed in any shape, form, or fashion by professional guides in Africa. That includes hunting the little animals as well as the big ones.

Don't be affraid to try mechanical broadheads.I have shot anywhere from 50 lb bows up to 103 lb bows.If you get use to a bow and broadhead combination and have confidence plus shooting small groups.I wouldn't be scaried if mine shot 200 feet per second.

It may be too fast. I wonder if anyone thought of that?
