I carried 3 of those at E2. I got excellent downrange accurracy with em out to 55 yds. I did a comparrison test in my block target against thunderheads, wasp, aftershocks, & Bear razorbacks.....all 100 gr.
Believe it or not, the best penetration was the old razorbacks by a couple of inches over any of the others and they shot excellent groups out to 45 yds. Beyond 45 the aftershocks were better for my set-up. *they also opened everytime and leave a huge wound channel once opened up inside the target. I was only shooting 60lbs., so I opted for the razorbacks to ensure a decent entry wound since I felt that chances weren't as good for a pass through on an elk sized critter ....thus a poor bloodtrail to try and follow. I carried 3 arrows tipped with each just in case. I can't wait to try an aftershock on a whitetail.
* Will said any elk with a bow is a trophy and Bruce said they always stop in bow range with something covering their vitals. Words of wisdom to live by !!!!
:D Will had me within 45 yds of a broadside cow the first 1 1/2hr of the hunt(the bull was 5 yds behind out of my vison until it was leaving) and I had cows at 22 & 28 yards the 4th day.....most fun 6 days of hunting I've ever had and I still found that tag soup tastes the same in CO as PA !

Confidence makes the hunter, PSE makes the bow.
