They fly well and penetrate very well. A good all around choice. The old man uses them and he gets pass throughs on a regular bases at 50lbs.

They are one of the best flying fixed blade broadheads I have ever seen. I've got a lot of diehard fixed blade shooters and they all love slicktricks. Great flight and great bloodtrails.

From what i've read about them, they seen to be the top choice. Do you think I could use them on moose? Im shooting a 404grn arrow at 284fps.

I wouldnt hesitate to use them on big game. Seen lots of Elk taken. Thats plenty of KE and I know you will get a good blood trail and hole.

What has always amazed me is how Slick Tricks has became so succesfull and he doesnt advertise like the other broadhead companys. Often in broadhead polls Slicktricks always get lots of votes.

I dont think that was a fact. Bottomline Slippy they work and work well.

Took one shot from a 40lb bow to prove it to me. Ill let you know if I lose a deer with a Slick Trick. Shot six deer last year and hole was awesome and good blood trails and no one is giving me anything for saying this.

its all about placement first DB, then performance 2nd. Nothing besides a Grim Reaper will attach to my Victories.

To make a broadhead 80% of the talk on a archery website was just a little over the top for me. Thus I knew it had to have been set up.

Tell you buddy. I was given 12 of those broad heads. I shot a doe quartering at 20yrds. Pot shot right in the bread basket. Never found the doe. I tried it again on another doe and same results. It happens and the Tricks took me awhile to believe all the posts. But I did my own testing and results were darn good ever time. Sometime the product is just that good. Simple as that. I trust the INTERNET posts more than I trust the advertisements.

Broadheads are like car tires. You need them, but they aren't as important as your engine or steering wheel. If I hit a buck through both lungs with a field tip, it will die within sight.


Hyping broadheads is overhyped.

I have shot so many different broadheads over the years. They all seem to work if you hit the right spot. But to say they all make the same hole and leave the same blood trail is diffiantly not true.

DB

Tricks work and hit the right spot.

I have seen a few holes tracking deer for my buddies. They can smack a good hole when they open right.

12 heart shots out of 20 targets on this broadhead course at unmarked course shooting out to 50yrdsyardage. This is a 37 yard shot for my stakes
White crested arrow. Of course my heart was not pounding like it does on a real deer.

Talking Broadheads

I'm Studing The Popualr Heads Right Now Myself, I Will Have To Give The Trick A Look And Test. I Will Say One Thing That I Have Noticed.
$40.00 Is A Lot Of Money To Pay For A Mechanical Head That Is Not Overly Sharp And Is 90% Aluminum. I Guess If Enought Money Is Spent On Advertising And Enough Sacride Cows Like Well You Now The List Of People. That Is What Does The Selling, If You Investigate The Big Box Store Customer Reveiw Site Imformation There Have Been Some Issues With Defliction On Some Heads. G5 Outdoors Has A Phase Color Bear Shot With There T2 Mech Head. The Bears Goes Down Just Feet From Where Shot Check It Out. I'm Not A Mech Fan But The Footage Is Awesome. Currently I'm Testing,
Stricker, T2 And Thanks To You Guys I Will Add The Tricks. $40.00
Should Be Able To Buy High Quality Steel/carbon Made Product Machined And Test To High Standards. Wasn't That Long Ago Folks Could But Six Muzzys For Under $30.00, And The Sure Have Put Meat On Many Buck Poles. My 2cents.

These heads are awesome. They are cheap so i never bought any thinking that they were 'cheap' heads. I was dead wrong. They are accurate and they are tough. I have changed from the Shuttle T's to the Slick Tricks because they are four blade and fly better. I harvested a deer the other night and it was devastated!!! It hit so hard on the opposite side rib cage that it broke almost every rib on that side. Complete pass through and went into the dirt on the other side of the deer. That head could be shot again and do it again, no doubt in my mind. I am shooting 2 inch groups at 50 yards with these heads and like I said before, they do some damage like a rifle does. I will have Tricks in my quiver for the rest of the season, that is for sure.
