Best broad head for cape buffalo?
What is the best broad head for a cape buffalo. #80 compound. Thanks, Brian

I can tell you what’s not good, that’s an Ashby 300 grain single bevel. I and a friend used them. Poor penetration on Cape buffalo, due to the tips of the broadhead breaking off.

VPA ( Vantage Point Archery) Single or double bevel

Either the VPA or Cutthroat single bevel. I’ve had, and seen, the Grizzlystik heads break on big animals.

Brian- Check out the Silver Flame by German Kinetics. Pretty sure this is the gold standard.

Thanks for everyone's help. Much appreciated.

Crane, Thanks. I have read the same thing as you say about German Kinetics. Also Iron Will.
