    Me too, my first bow kill with a less than optimal shot, blood everywhere and deer dropped in less than 50 yards.

    Slick trick broadheads. I have been using the Razor trick heads for the last few years with no complaints at all.

    Also wanted to add that years ago when I started bowhunting and before I knew I need high dollar broadheads and $120+ arrows, I killed a pile of deer with those Wally world "Allen" brand broadheads.

    Rage 2 blades have been putting a hurting on deer all around me, I have never seen them do a bad job. Never understood why so many hated them, although the 3 blade is not so good, I will agree with that.

    More than what the OP asked for, but here is my big mechanical review...

    Most of this will be about the killzone. Granted this broad head has been out a couple years but I just replaced blades for the first time so I feel justified in giving a full review.

    Like many I shot rage 2 blades at one point. Killed several deer (including my biggest) but also lost 2 due to poor penetration on shots low in the shoulder (human mistake). In theory I like the big cut idea to make up for any error on my part, but the rage 2 didn't cut it. So I went on the search for a better head.

    I liked the killzone for the narrower feral and sharper blades. I've shot them for my last two bucks and several does. They have performed very well on a variety of shots and ranges.

    Two night ago I replaced blades. They blades might be sharper than the originals but there are lots of smaller components and it makes assembly tedious.

    Overall I like this head but they are expensive and tough to replace (I had to order offline).

    As previously stated although a competent archer (several tournament wins during 3ds in college, and qualified for the Olympic trials at 12), I like to hedge my bets with greater cutting diameter. If your ok with the admitted drawbacks I'd give this head a nod.

    I have tried Schwaker and killed/found all 3 deer I shot...that being said they break easy and blood trails lacked gusto.

    Next to be reviewed are rage hyperdermics. I killed my last deer of the past season with one and performance was good and blades were sharper than the traditional heads.

    Just one guys opinion but there you have it.

    I find myself coming back to look at these. If I didn't just buy a brand new set of Thunderheads for my new arrows, I would buy some of these just to check them out.

    I've only used two brands in all the years I've hunted and both work well. I have one 3 pack of bear super razor heads that I've killed several deer with. I've only used two of the three in the pack. I'm saving the last one for my pope & young :) I always carry the other two in my quiver for that squirrel or long range coyote.

    The other broad head I use and have killed the most deer with is the 125 gr 3 blade muzzy. Easy to sharpen or replace if needed and penetrates as well as cut on contact. Usually take my 51# recurve these days and never had any trouble as long as I do my part. Each of these broad heads have taken several deer, just sharpen or replace blades and good to go.

    I like Montec for fixed blade but bought some 100 gr Allen Beartooth (I think was the name) fixed blade and swear they look and shoot about the same and you can sharpen them razor sharp and use over and over. Used to use a cheap little broadhead like 3 for $7 called Titanium II and killed as many deer as I have with the other and they rarely made it very far. Still have some and they really shoot great in crossbows.

    Magnus Stingers can't beat the life time warranty. when I shoot three of the heads I put em in the mail and they send me replacements no questions asked even if you have sharpened them

    Started years ago with Bear Razors and Wasp. Now I graduated to the best head I've ever used, Slick Trick Magnums. They leave a slug hole all the way through and leave a excellent blood trail. This year I'm going to use the 125 grain 1 3/8" Ramcat. Will let everyone know how well they do. They were highly recommended for penetration, blood trail and accuracy, we'll see. I just can't imagine them being better than a Slick Trick.
