You will be good to go . Speed is okay I prefer shot placement with a sharp broadhead.

280 is plenty. It doesn't matter how fast you're shooting if you don't hit the target. My old PSE shot around 251. Never had my Switchback on a chrono and have no intention to.

I was worried about having enough energy to push that big broadhead all the way through to have an exit wound.

You bow is plenty fast enough . I shot plenty of deer in the old days with bows that shot a 2117 Gamegetter @ 190 fps .
Guys get too caught up in speed .

Put the soapboxes away guys. I think he is wondering about the blades opening. It didn't appear that he is looking for the world's fasest bow.

Headhunter, I think you should ask the deer and hogs I have shot with expandables what they think. African animals and scrawny whitetail deer are two different things. Like shooting a dove with a .270 rifle.

I have killed a couple deer with the rage BH. I think you will be fine. Just take a good double lung shot and enjoy the blood trail. Hope you have a great season and good luck!
