yes you are right, for me the penetration test is not so important, the important test for me is the zero plane and cut diameter in meat.Guide Girl said:I sure wish they would have used hogs for all the shots instead of a barrel since no one I know purposely shoots barrels, but do the hogs. They left out a few good ones to test~ NAP Spitfires and MUZZYs. I bet they didn't recover that hog either! No penetration at all. That was poor, but not the broadheads fault either. No power behind it. Still, interesting.
