Fixed blade broadheads

8 posts in this topic

Another question for all you guys that do shoot fixed blades, whats everyone had the best luck with? I shot muzzy 3 blade 100 gr last year, and when i switched to them from field points, i was a foot to the left and low. im thinkin i wanna go with a shorter profile broadhead and am thinkin about either Slick Trick or G5 Strikers. Has anyone shot the slick tricks?

Slick Tricks are nice all steel tough 4 blade heads, but you still need to have your arrows and bows tuned to get "field point flight".

You were a foot to the left and low at what range? At any range that is way off and something is messed up.

I used the Easton tuning guide and moved my rest to get everything working.

Slick tricks have great reputation but I haven't personally used them. I've been using G5 Montecs since I've started bow hunting. They work great for me. Some claim that they are not very sharp but I've passed threw all three deer I've shot with them; although I haven't shot a deer past 25 yards. Also I can say that I don't need to adjust anything before 35 yards in comparison to my field tips. I set at 15, 25, and 35. At 35 I hit "about" an inch and a half lower than the field tips. It all depends on your set up. We're all different. I'm happy with Montecs and don't see a reason to change.

I shoot 100 grain Muzzy Mx-3's and they are an inch high at 30 yards. Right on at 20 yards & 40 yards. Don't know the dynamics of why this is but they work for me. One comment on Muzzy MX-4's. They seemed to "sail" on me. I couldn't get consistent groups. I am thinking its tied to the baldes being on the same plane but I am not sure.

I've used the G5 strikers and the Stingers 4 blade from Magnus. Both have done great. I had problems with the Stingers until I got my bow back in tune. Now all my broadheads fly great.

I am new to this stuff. How can you tune a broadhead to the arrow? Or do you adjust your bow and equipment to the flight of your arrow with broadheads? Thanks for the info!

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
