Anybody have experience with this broadhead ? I’m seeing mixed reviews on the interweb.

I've used them. If you're shooting them out of a fast compound, I've had mixed results with accuracy. I had one that blew through a shoulder and rounded off the tip a little but got it back in shape with a file. They're a little rough when you get them too and need a good sharpening/hone (this may have changed over the years).

I’m not sure how fast my bow will be with them. I’m shooting a 2009 Diamond Justice at 29” at 65 lbs. I’ve been using 100 gr NAP Bloodrunners for years now but wanting to increase weight and use fixed broadheads.

I'd guess you'd be on par with my Mathews Switchback at 70lbs. I think I was shooting the 150 gr. too. They are definitely piledrivers. I had one marked with a magic marker that flew the best. They're a brazed or welded construction so there's some inconsistencies but they were just fine out to 30 yds when practicing.
