Want to hear opinions on this hybrid head

No advice but I switched to it this fall after trying several different broadheads looking for one that flew most like my field tips. I think the deploying mechanical blades are a little light for large animals and getting the tension set correctly after changing the factory setting is no easy task. They took down a 3yr old 11 point whitetail nicely for me this October but I question whether both wings deployed since the arrow curved after entering the deer such that it came out the dead-center brisket rather than opposite side but it still cut the second lung and dropped it at 150 yards. Never found the arrow.
I shoot the 125gr chisel tips. They fly exactly like my field points. I have taken one deer with them at 40 yards. I got a pass though with a huge blood trail to where he was piled up 45 yards away. I high lungs and sliced the liver. I am very impressed with them. They are sharp and I didn't have any problems adjusting the tension.
They work well but like anything its up to you to put it in the vitals. The idea is a good concept as it creates one that has a less chance of complete failure. I tested them last year and they flew well and killed quickly. I loosened the tension screw and set it so it required a little effort to open and everything worked fine. But like I said if you do your job it will do its job.
