Glad to hear you found something that worked for you. I would have been inclined to recommend either the Arrow dynamics hammerhead heavy weight shaft with all that weight up front it would have been plenty heavy the only thing is you might have had to have built out your side plate some. I think the tuffhead is probably your best option for a broadhead.

Hey buddy I have absolutly no way to tell you what it takes to kill an elaphant. I would take advice from those who do like Andy.

I will be looking forward to the story my friend.

He is there right now, or on the way. I talked to Buff on the phone a couple weeks ago, and the hunt is middle to end of the month. I cannot remember exactly. There should be some pretty sweet pictures/videos coming shortly.
