Was shooting a PSE Decree HD with a HHA Optimizer KingPin and Goldtip Hunter XT with 100gr Grim Reapers. Just swapped to a Mathews Traverse two days ago with the exact same setup across the board.

I’m shooting my old faithful 2008 Bowtech Equalizer at 24” / 60lbs. Shooting Black Eagle Rampage 400’s with the 50 gain SS inserts up front and 100gr Magnus Stinger Buzzcuts.  It’s shoots straight through a whitetail no problem.  Makes me wonder how light and arrow some of these tv guys are shooting with a big expandable and getting crap penetration when my little set up has no problem.

Those big OTP expandables take a pile of energy to open up. I’ve used them and haven’t always gotten the best penetration. But, they’ve generally left plenty of blood on the ground. Having said that, the ST magnums have been good too. Hard to argue with a sharp, fixed 4 blade head.

2008? Isn’t that a relic these days? How can you kill a deer with an 11 y/o bow these days?

Bowtech destroyer that I put aftermarket barnesdale limbs on. Ripcord rest, full metal jacket arrows and qad exodus broadhead. Also occasionally use slick trick magnums and shuttle T broadheads but the qad beats them hands down for toughness and bloodtrails. I have shot enough with all and dont even see that as a close competition. Need to sharpen the shuttle T's also as I have found they are not sharp out of the package.

I have an '08 Bowtech Guardian and yes it is a relic. It isn't very fast compared to today's standards, but it is hands down the smoothest drawing/shooting, quietest, shock free bow I've shot... I have shot quite a few Brands/models over the 30 plus yrs. that I've been shooting. The Darton DS 3800 I'm hunting with now is close . The draw cycle is harsher, has a little more jump on the release and is a bit more sensitive to hand torque. But it is more of speed bow.

I think the over the top expandable penetration limitation is very subjectsble to many factors. If you have a really light weight bow and short draw, use light arrows, and especially if the arrow doesn’t hit its target perfectly straight there could be issues. For years I’ve used wasp jackhammers, never had an arrow stay in unless far shoulder bone was hit and that’s an over the top expandable. Same thing happened w fixed blade heads from same bows.
As bow hunters we need to learn our limitations w our given equipment and work around that. Yes the penetration could suffer but to what extent varies.
