    Archer36, I do not disagree, the more efficient the bow the more momentum it imparts, but I believe the point that Dr. Ashby is making is that when the perfect shot go south (e.g. hitting a bone), the whole game changes. A bit like getting over-gunned, just in case, the knives fight turns into a gun fight.

    No broadhead can make up for a bad shot. Especially a small diameter two bladed one.

    What it means, small diameter? Something like this?

    Have no idea what the size is. If you have it measure it. In my opinion, small diameter in under 1.25".

    I wouldn't know, I use mostly Grizzly and they are all within 1.13" and 1.19" width, including the 315 grains.
