    Default broadheads

    i shoot alot in the off season and love it..but when season rolls around i have to completely change my sights to be good for my broadheads. i dont know exactly what the are same grain as my practice tips and fixed blade. i shoot about 6-8 inches low, 6-8 inches right. is there a better broadhead, preferablly a mechanical that will shoot more consistant to my practice tips

    There are a lot of good Broadheads that should fly with your field points out of a well tuned bow, but you will not find a better flying, or tougher Broadhead than Slick Tricks

    I have to try these slick tricks. Everyone says they are the real deal. I have looked at them and don't see anything special about them. What in your opinion makes them great?
    Don't be mad, Im just curious.

    I am leery of tha mechanical for obvious reason although many here will swear by them
    Give me a good 3 blade muzzy 100 gr.
    There is some point of contact discerption with some blades . I just adjust and go for it.

    That's a tuning issue, not the broadhead...feild points are alot more forgiving than a fixed blade...the BH will plane through the air where the FP pushes through...try moving your rest(very, very slightly UP-Left)and see if that helps...you should be able to creep up on the bullseye...
    BUT REMEMBER...very small adjustments...

    Ill third the tuning issue. I think its a craze, everyone wants the expandable heads nowdays thinking their the cure all. when their equipment is at fault most of the time. Not saying all the expanbables are bad, but i pry will never use one.
