Default Slick Trick BH - Noise in Flight?

I realize 20 and in probably won't make a difference with my setup but I would just like to know about noise from all the guys on here that shoot slick trick.

Reviews on Cabelas indicates whistling while in flight, any truth to this?

Can't say I ever had an issue with whistling. I did with montecs. But not slicks.

Shot a doe at 35 yards on the GA opener on Saturday with a Slick Trick 100 gr. Magnum and she didn't seem to notice either.

Havent heard the whistling from the Slick tricks... granted fletchings make a whistling sound of there own too, so keep that in mind.

Any broadhead with blades, be they are vented, solid, or mehcnaical is going to make some noise in flight. It's just the way it is.

yep they make some noise while in flight, not really a whistle sound but more of a cutting through the air sound.

have to really listen to hear it though,

Shot a buck at 42 yards two years ago with 125 gr Magnums, and he had no idea the head was coming his way. Like bigbulls said, fixed blades will make some noise, but I don't think its anything to worry about.
