Just wondering if an Easton axis 400 tipped with a 100gr. fixed blade broad head shot at 286ft./sec. is suitable for elk. Just concerned about the small shaft of the arrow. Is the 100gr. tip enough or should I be looking @ 125gr.
Your set up is real close to mine and that should be a great setup. The smaller diamter arrows are great for better penetration. My arrows weight a total of 468.00 grains, and I have right around 70lbs of KE at 10yards! Should be an elk killer in my book.
In the spring of 2007 I was the unfortunate recipient of an injury cause by a damaged carbon arrow that shattered on release of the arrow. I was in the yard going to take a few practice shots before dinner and the second arrow is the one that did the damage. That day will forever be burned in my mind. After I release what happened I made mistake #2 I pulled the tail shaft of the arrow out of my hand causing more damage.
Thank goodness that my wife was home and was able to...
