BroadHeads

Postby 1874sharpsshooter » Wed Jun 28, 2017 7:51 pm

I have a September archery elk hunt. I decided to switch from my standard Muzzies and try out the Slick Trick broadheads. Doesn't pay to go shopping for broadheads. I got them, but ended up walking out with a new bow also. But on the bright side they gave me a new hat to go along with the bow. :mrgreen: Hat was free of course :mrgreen: I better get that elk now!!!

Very nice! Which model Hoyt is That? You could always say you bought a $1,000 hat and they gave you a free bow. :lol:

I started using the Slick Tricks about 3-4 years ago, I didn't have to do any extra tuning to get them to fly right, they hit where my field points do. I shoot 2 different ones, one is called a Slick Trick 'Viper Trick' and the other Trick is a low profile 4 Blade.

I bought the slick trick magnums and the vipers. I really like the Vipers so I plan on using them.

I always used slick trick standards, dont really have any complaints about them, however, this year im trying the grizz tricks. thought is they should fly closer to a field tip, as ive always slightly had to tune for the slick tricks. I also got a new bow last year, halon 6, I've always shot a hoyt turbohawk, and golt tip hunter x t arrows. killed many deer over the years. not sure why, but this year ive changed everything lol. the halon 6, carbon xpress maxima red arrows, grizz tricks, and I've been trying the gold tip arrow weights.. theory is like a dart to get weight forward of center for flatter arrow flights, and deeper penetration, and supposedly better broadhead flights. I've tried 20 and 40 grains, i really like to 40 grains, they clearly penetrate deeper than non weighted arrows.
