Slick Tricks

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
