They already have the best broadhead made. Seems like a stretch

I'm not a mechanical fan but I am a slick trick fan. Looks viscous.

Yeah that's what I thought too, I like the tip on the ST better though. Also looks very similar to the wac em design.

I'll be trying the raptor tricks when our shop gets them in.

From what I've read they wanted to get into the mechanical line this year and they are new. Reviews have been good. May give them a shot

Not sure, I hope they come with a lot of extra o rings. Slick trick has a short video on their FB page.

I think it's funny that those and a couple other new mechanicals look like swackers and the new swackers don't look like a swacker at all

I guess since ST's first attempt at a mechanical (Nuke) was a disaster, they just copied Swhacker's design.

Glad they worked for you. I bought a pack and never tried them on an animal after shooting them at a target. For me, they flew like a wounded duck and sounded like a helicopter. You should look on eBay. You can get them new for $13.99 or best offer.

Its a swacker... ownership change was terrible for product. Miss old package you could actually store then in. Miss old price. A streach doesnt cover this

I'll be completely honest I still haven't like I planned on. And now I have a PICC line in my arm for another couple weeks so it will be that long before I'm able to shoot my bow will report back as soon as I do. Just taking them out of the package and looking at them I was impressed they are sharp and seem to be pretty sturdy.

Should be a good exit hole, no hole on entry, not favorable from a ground blind.
