My friend always hunt with Nitrons but decided this year to try out the spitfires.They always open and fly just like field points.The only hassle we had before the hunt was that the spitfire only lasted a few practice rounds before it got buggered which we thought was ok since the packed said only five impact shots.On our hunting trip he shot a Kudu bull with a spitfire and sadly it did not perform as we had hoped it would.It did open on impact and clearly was a heart/long shot but upon hitting the animal it deflected off a rib and came out higher than it went in giving a good double long shot.It also did not leave a good blood trail although the wound was pretty big.We found the bull about 400 yards away where he had expired.Since then we thought it best to stick to something we know that works.
