Default slick trick broadheads

I was looking at Slick trick 100gr broadheads. They seem cheaper ($) than alot of other fixed types. Would like to hear about thier performance such as flight and performance on game. A little concerned about 4 blades and potential planing. I would want to use these on heavier game such as black bear and moose this fall. Also thinking of the Montec G5 but not having to sharpen blades is simpler.

The Montec's are very easy to sharpen Terry so don't let that change your mind on the G5's ,the G5's are well sharp enough to use out of the package ,but if you want them razor sharp you'll have to either buy the stone at BassPro that I seen for 35.00 or I have another solution that will work for alot less .

Hey Nubo,
Still leaning towards the G5 at this point, just gathering info. Those slicktricks are almost half the price of G5s at Canadian Camo. If I go with G5s I will buy the sharpening stone also.

Terry!

I use 600 grit wet dry sand paper and then when I get them near sharp, I polish them with a 1200 grit paper ,it only take's a few minute's per head as long as you got a very flat surface to use and they come out razor sharp.I'm going to pick up the proper stone for the G5's because I'm sure this is the head I'll be using for a very long time and I think the stone would be worth my while to invest in since it's tapered for the G5's cutting edge's and make's for no guessing on the angle's.

Nothing wrong with the slicktricks. they are much sharper then when they first came out. leave a heck of a bloodtrail. I'm using these now cause they flew exactly with my field points. Good luck with your choice.

Let me assure you that there is no planing with a slick trick.

I, as well as countless others, have found them to be the most accurate and one of the best penetrating fixed blade head made today. That 4 blade 1 1/8 inch head makes a huge hole and produces awesome blood trails.

I have tried the montecs and they are a great head but they do have a bad draw back IMHO. If you damage the blades they are pretty much shot. They can be gouged up pretty badly by striking small rocks and such in the ground and group tuning and sometimes it's bad enough that you can't get the gouges out with out filing down a large ammount of the blades and changing the weight and weakening the blades.

I prefer a replacement blade head.

TerryM--the Slick Tricks heads have impressed me a whole lot.
I've taken moose at 38 yards and at 42 yards, using a 55# bow equiped with a 27" -373 grain arrow (100 G STEELHEADS).
I can assure you--if the Steelheads can do it--the Slick Tricks will.
This last season I filled two tags with the Slick tricks and they made an impressive exit wound on both animals--so much so, I stuffed the wounds with 'snow' to stop it from bleeding--so I don't leave a blood trail thru the farmer's snowmobile trail.[8D]
