Slick Tricks

13 posts in this topic

I have a 2005 Bowtech Allegiance bow that I bought last year.Muzzy's or Thunderheads don't shoot worth a hoot in it. I have some Rocket Ultimate 100's that shoot great in it, but I question the cheaply made little broadheads? I've heard that Slick Tricks fly like a field point, and would like to get some opinions on these or other broadheads to consider. My Bowtech is alot faster than my old bow. I'm shooting Cabela's carbons with 2" blazer vanes with a whisker biscuit rest.

I have been using STs for a couple of seasons and they fly just like my practice FPs. I dont have to make any adjustments at all. However, I have yet to kill a deer with them....I have harvested a lot of small game and they work just as good as any other BH.

I am shooting mine out of a 06 switchback at 70lbs on the end of 350 max carbon express arrows. I think they are worth checking out. I have also had very good arrow flight characteristics with G5 Strikers. They might be also worth your time checking out.

Good luck

Cliffy.

Sounds to me like you've got some tuning issues. Don't switch broadheads to cover up an existing problem. Any properly tuned bow with the correct arrows should shoot the BHs mentioned.

I'm not sure however if 2" Blazer vanes shot through a Wisker Biscuit are the best choices for a larger fixed blade broadhead. I switched to 4" Quick Spin vanes for my Thunderhead 125 grains with a drop away rest with great success.

Im shootin blazers thru a biscuit in my bow with G5 strikers and its shootin great. Just had everything papertuned last night and everything is dead nuts. I also had problems with Muzzy 3-blade last year- i was paper tuned and everything was dialed and i went to broad heads and started shooting a foot to the left and 4" low.....

I would paper tune first. If you are in tune then a longer fletch can help stablize out an arrow with a broadhead. A number of years ago a local bow shop switched out my smaller vanes and I've been shooting 4 inch fletch ever since.

You will probably loose a little speed but I'd rather be a little low consistently than not know where my arrow was going to hit. You can always move your pins (assuming you have them).

The Rocket heads shoot great in it. I just ? the quality of the Rockets? The Slick Tricks I've heard are a good broadhead, so if I decided to try a pack of them and they shot great, problem solved.

Slick tricks are a quality broadhead. One of my buddies sons just shot a 450 lbs. bear with a slick trick. The kid is 12 years old, weighs 78 lbs. shotting a 48 lbs. matthews, 20 inch arrow with a slick trick broadhead. The arrow went straight through the bear at 17 yards. They work!

I have shot them for 3 years now and love them! They fly as good as field points. Are Very tough, and devastate anything they hit. I have killed a couple deer with them and very short trails with loads of blood. I have shot many broadheads and they are #1 in my book. Get them and you will not be disappointed!

I'm with DonBo on this one. I had trouble with several broadheads with my bow too until I did a broadhead tune. Do a Google search for bow+tuning+broadhead and you'll find lots of good advice.

BTW, I read a lot of good things about Slick Tricks and might look into them this season (I'm getting a little low on broadheads right now.)

I just tried slick tricks after using muzzy's for the last 8 years and I am very impressed I just took a doe with them on sunday. I shot the doe at 40 yards it went thru both shoulder blades and I found the arrow about 10 ft beyond where the doe was standing. She went 40 yards and fell over dead.

I just ordered a 3 pack of Slick Tricks 100 grain. Can't wait to try them, and hope they are spot on!

    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.

    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
