Man that will be awesome hunt. Something I have wanted to do for 20 or so years. May God bless you with two good arrowsI was in the market for a new bow for a buff/hippo hunt in Zambia this year. I took my new 950gr Grizzly stik arrows to the pro shop and shot them through most of the bows. I had no real prejudice going in on bow make/model but had the Hoyt Helix and Mathews Vertix as my top choices for a DG bow. After Shooting and chronographing all the bows the Vertix was my favourite. Everyone is different but I like the dead in the hand feel and how quiet the Vertix shoots. Speed was not my number one, or even number 2 criteria with a new bow but with my draw length, 27'', the 950 gr Grizzly stiks shot equal to the 80#(82# actual) Hoyt Helix. The 75# Vertix was actually 78# on the scale. Draw cycle on the Vertix is ultra smooth IMO compared to others.
