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!

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.

Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.
