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!

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
