i shoot a high country iron mace set at 65# i have a 27.5 inch draw  and shoot high country speed pro arrows. i have been using 100 grain broadheads,rage 2-blades.They fly great with my bow but they tend to open on their own at times and i lost a buck i shot last year after hiting him in the front shoulder at 15-yards.he was perfectly broadside to me.the one side never opened on entry and the other opened but bent back around the ferrow of the head. i know this because my cousin shot this buck a month later and the head was in his left lung which i have have in my possession.i am also thinking about using the g-5 strikers 100 gr.nervous about how it will fly.

Speed isn't everything is all I can say.  I know those High Country Speed arrows are super light arrows.  I wouldn't expect you to get great penetration with a 2 blade 2"+ expandable with that arrow.  I'v shot Rage for 3 years now and have never heard or had one open up during flight.  This could only happen from the blades not being locked properly with the O-Ring.  If you have them pushed into the grooves than you won't have a problem.  With that set-up you'd be better off shooting a Striker, Muzzy MX3/4, or any of the Slick Trick Broadheads.  Low profile, but very tough and sharp.  Make sure your paper-tuned perfectly to get field point flight with the broadheads.  Hope this helps.  If you were shooting another arrow like a Carbon Express 250, Easton 400, etc.  you would be fine, but those High Country Speed arrows are just for speed and not a great hunting arrow in my opinion
