was search for a mini fixed blade cut on contact, i was in broadhead talk.com and they seek like ghost room with no repond, anyways come here and question and compare on 2 different slick trick razortrick vs steel force phathead or titanium bullet, i'm still in mixed up on what broadhead i want to get mechincal and fixed blade but i do like the look steel force titanium bullet has a teethback of blade and what do u like about razortrick and titanium bullet
i wonder will the 1 degree offset fletch 2" HP blazer steer them ? but other broadhead i still cirous about helix boradhead..

slick tricks not accurate at all, but most fixed blades arent. imo mechanicals are the way to go, but thats just me.

this can't be farther from the truth....you just have to take the time and learn how to tune your broadheads and your bow.

Slick tricks are one of the best flying around if properly tuned they will fly with your practise tips, they are sharper than average and make a nice wound channel with good blood trails.

Mechanical blades are just that mechanical and anything mechanical fails once in awhile including broadheads.

well u can obviously sight ur bow in with any broadhead and get them to shoot on, but what i was trying to say is that with the mechanicals i use you can shoot without moving ur sight from shooting field points. and ive had no mechanical probs, just saying.

Steelheads have accounted for a few of my deer, and they're one of my favorite mechanicals.
Slick tricks are popular for 2 reasons. They're easy to tune for a fixed blade head and they leave a nice hole for a small head.
G5 Montecs are another accurate head but some find them hard to re-sharpen. G5 Strikers are the replaceable blade version of the Montec IMO, sharp and accurate, another good choice in a fixed blade head.

Man, Iv been hooked on Wasp broadheads the last few years and this year hunted with the BOSS Bullet. Talk about accurate, tough and sharp! They are priced great too. $30.00 for 6 vs. $40.00 for 6 or $30.00 for 3 of most other brands. I cant recomend Boss Bullets enough.

Your missing the point...
if you know how to tune your bow and your arrows you won't have to move your site to go between broadheads and field points.

You obviously are not setup correctly. Slick Tricks are the Most accurate fixed blade I have ever shot in 40 plus years. They fly right with my field points out to 60 yards.

If they did Not I would be taking a serious look at my Bow Tune.

JT, Use Helical for Broadheads. I tune my Bow to a gnat's arse but I still use all the steering I can get. I have used Feathers, Blazers, regular vanes, and QS Vanes including the Speed Hunters.

I always go back to Feathers because they can't be beat.

Blazers, etc will get the job done but give me feathers. I've also been impressed with the QS Speed Hunter ST's

i have been using blazers for a ew years and love them. i alway use a helical on them for broadheads. for field points you can easily get by with just an offset.

i saw this fletching jig at the paris texas ASA shoot a couple of years ago and it made fletching blazers with a helical super easy. you can use a different arm for helical and straight. the guy demoing the jig used the fastset glue and had a blazer glued on in about 10 seconds start to finish.

i has a AAE fletching jig that has 1 degree offset slight to straight, and i just buy 2" vanetec HP blazer, the arrow rest i have is tri-van contour " static " and the mike from mid atlantic archery he recommend straight and offset for this arrow rest but if go tri van vanishing then can do any fletch u want..
reason i wonder about small broadhead and the blazer might give better chance accruate as they say blazer give arrow a arrow..
but i might have to go with mech then buy a different jig and arrow rest then can go with fixed blade head..

i'm take a look at rocket steelhead in 2 different mechanical one orginal steel and other same size but add a cut on contact.. 1 1/8" diameter

you can easily get good penetration with those specs from mechanical broadheads. the main thing i look for from mechanicals is that the blades are not extending past the tip. so the tip penetrates before the blades. just seemed like there is less of a chance for the blade to throw off the arrow to me.

some are farther behind the tip. some are closer. i don't know what brands, but you can certainly search at different sites of manufacturers and easily see what i mean.
i am having a hard time finding pictures of closed broadheads. most pictures are showing opened ones.

One of the reasons I went to 125 grain Steelheads. The tip extended farther out ahead of the blades. The 100's were almost even.
Cath8 I also have been a Wasp fan for a long time. Still in my quiver.

i have never shot a vortex, they seem too big cut blade cause poor pentarte at high speed bnow ?

The latest trend (since the Rage) is a big cut head. That works if you clear the first side and encounter just ribs. Hit something more substantial and that big cut is big resistance too. Not worth the gamble IMO.

i shot ramcats this year 1 3/8 fixed . tested them in my hooter shooter at 38 yards shot 6 was able to shoot a 1 1/4 tip to tip group . how much more accurate do you want with a fixed head and 1 3/8 isnt consider a small head . that was with a 350 grain arrow( victory hv v3 300) at 340fps with fusion vanes .but its all in the setup.

dont know exactly what your asking . the blades dont close . but there sharpned on both sides and what they do is if you dont get a pass through when pulled backward they cut a 1 3/4 hole on the way back out . but there not considered a expandable because they dont open on impact .

I just want rockey mtn to bring back the snyper imo the best mechanical ever made.many deer zero faliures.i think the biggest thing is the bow still has to be tuned to perfection to get max mechanical penetration.for fixed I have found the slick tricks to be spot on great shooting head.i think the rage 40 ke has potential with a little work,most people at my shop are putting bands on the blades to ensure no premature deployment 10 sec fix

You cant go wrong with a steelhead XP, but I really like the standard steelhead or the Steelhead XL. {WHY} The tip and farrell are one piece, thus you will never have a tip bend over on bone impact. Yes the blades are close to the tip on the XL but in all the actual hunting I have done with them I have Never had a blade cause deflection. This year I shot a nice buck quartering hard toward me at 34yds. The broadhead hit at mid sholder blade and went right through almost to the back leg! No deflection, and the buck didnt make it 100yds. Never had a problem with Rockets! and will shoot them for life!

think HCA dont make a broadhead anymore today ? where do u get that ? but 55gr pretty light for my set up but i would shot a 100 gr unless if u are use very heavy arrow good chance to use 55 gr head..

also i do remeber HCA used to make thier own carbon arrows and now they arent make anymore expect for 2 or 3 bow models ..

We still produce the broadheads and arrows and there are 4 bows in the line for 2011 with 1-2more to be released in the 3rd quarter.
HCA is under new ownership since Oct 2009 and is working hard to bring the company back to the forefront.
The picture above was taken with my setup with a 55brh - 6.2 HCA speed pro arrow and HCA X10 70lb. 30dl
We carry them in stock just let me know.
