I read an article today saying that they are the newest rage. They are supposed to fly just like a fieldpoint. They are smaller than conventional broadheads. Which gives them less wind resistance. They are being used by hunters who take 40 and 50 yard shots. It said that out west those are the only shots you have sometimes. Peterson's bowhunting mag had a whole piece on them and everything seemed very positive. I might try them as well.
Here is the URL for the broadheads, they look impressive.
"Go afield with a good attitude, with respect for the wildlife you hunt and for the forest and fields which you walk. Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience, it will cleanse your soul and make you a better person".
I bought a pack of slick tricks a few weeks ago. I am going to let some fly this year. They do fly right with my field tips out to 40 yards. I don't like the blade though, I don't see how it could be sharpened. I think once it dulls it's done. I normally shoot Magnus stingers and I still will have some in my quiver.
I currently use Muzzy 3 blade but am considering trying the Slick Tricks
Let me know what your opinion is
throw away your muzzy,s . i was the biggest fan of muzzy because they are tough but i hated the way they flew, so i switched to slick tricks and i have taken 12 deer with them and i watched all 12 fall within eyesight, now i know you can say that about alot of heads but when i shoot my field tips they hit just 1 inch left of were slick tricks do i think if you give them a try you will not regret it,
I had some and didn't like them. I was impressed that they flew like field points but had a hard time balancing them. They had a lot of wobble on the arrow spinner. I had to keep taking them apart and putting them back together. I know people love them but they're not for me. I switched to wasp boss broadheads. Same accuracy but no wobble and they come 6 to a pack for almost the same price.
