    Vortex 125gr 2 3/4" cut.
    Because ya don't fix what ain't broke.
    That broadhead is responsible for over 100 whitetail deaths by me alone. Along with over 25 turkeys. Have yet to have a reason to switch

    Muzzy 125 grain....I want to know my broadhead is running and working with zero chance of failing to open or whatever.

    Slick Tricks. Fly great. Tough as nails and still sharp after using.

    Fixed blade Slick Tricks. I did shoot a doe yesterday with a NAP Killzone for crossbows and it did very well.She didn't go 50 yds. and I watched her pile up.My first experience with a mechanical head and it preformed great !

    Anyone have any expierence with the mechanical Grim Reapers razortips, 100 grain? I switched to them last season and they seem to shoot pretty good for me. Haven't shot a deer with one though. Any thoughts would be much appreciated!

    For compound & crossbow ... use fixed blade Wasp Hammer SST. I've killed deer & hogs with them. They tune easily ... fly great and scary sharp.

    With traditional... 45# recurve.... using Magnus Stingers. They fly great ... good solid cut on contact head ... but so far yet to kill anything with them.

    Sharp, easy to tune, and durable. Brand doesn't matter, as long as they fit into that criteria. I've shot Slick Tricks, G-5, NAP, Wasp, Rocky Mountain, Muzzy, Savora, Bear, and Satellite. I was able to get every one of those to tune well enough to shoot Some took more effort than others. Broadhead technology has come a long way in the last 40 years.

    Slick tricks, by far, have been the easiest to tune and shoot. They are also one of the sharpest head out of the package I've used. G-5 Strykers may be a bit sharper out of the pack. I have no idea how many deer I've killed with the slick tricks, but I do know I've yet to have a failure. A couple of shoulder shots, and a couple of spine shots come to mind. All of those deer were recovered, and the broadhead stayed together. I've lost a couple of deer over the years, All but two I can blame 100% on me.

    Through the years, I've shot deer that should have fallen within 50 yards, that ran out of sight. I've shot deer that should have ran for days that fell within sight. Deer are the toughest, fragile animals I hunt.
