i had heard alot about slickstricks so i decided to give them a try i used to shoot spitfires 100grn but found that they were not very durable. i started using slicktricks this past season i had never shot them before and practiced only with field points,and when the moment of truth came the slicktrick did its job blowing right through a big doe at about 23 yards i watched it run about 40 yards and pile up i didnt need to track it. the slicktrick made a real good entry hole and a bigger exit hole. the next day i had a 17 yard shot with the same results, thats when i was sold on them. there are alot of good broadheads out there you will just have to find the ones that work for you like the slicktricks worked for me. good luck

My advice is that you should shoot a fixed position head since any and all mechanicals have one thing in common that they can't get around: they all lose energy at impact more than any other broadhead. Now, that being said, if you shoot a weapon that generates tons of kinetic energy, then you may have a good set-up for shooting mechanicals. I don't know what is the proper amount of kinetic energy, but I found out the hard way. A light lb pull bow and a mechanical broadhead are a bad bad combination. I've shot both mechs and fixed and I will always and forevere more shoot a 100 grn Thunderhead or a 100 grn Muzzy. Right now, I'm sold on the Thunderheads.

While certainly not afraid to shoot a mech head, I am partial to the 3 blade muzzy 100 gr head. I have taken deer with the wasp jak hammer and was impressed, but must admit that I feel better knowing that I have a fixed head up there with me.

Personally, I like 125gr Thunderheads too. I have never had one fail. They can be a bit hard to tune out of fast rigs. Muzzys are also a good choice.

I have used Rocky Mountain 3 Blades-Razors & Ironheads. They do an excellent job.
My son, Brother & son-in-law also use them, We see no reasons to change. good luck in your choice.
