X2.

The wasp boss 4 blades are some great heads for a fair price. 6 pack for what alot of the newer heads are priced at for 3 heads. They are sharp out of the box and do some good damage. I don't have mind paying for quality, but with the boss broad heads you don't have to pay high dollar for high quality.

I like slicktricks and montecs. Both fly like my field points and do the job.

How is that possible since they are a totally different design??...so you are saying you do not have to tune your bow to them...just switch 'em out and shoot?

Maybe different bows?
I shot a Mathews SQ2 and could get for the most part - human erroe, my Rocky Mountain Titaniums and Snypers flying the same as my field points. Guess the pro shop in Florida knew what they were doing, Thanks Derek.

Yeah, I guess...you said you could "get" them to fly like field points(for the most part)...which I'm guessing means you tuned your bow for them to have the same POI, correct?

They all work well as long as they are sharp and put in the right place! I love my rage 3 blade...Shoot with field points and I dont have to change a thing, they fly the same out of my set up. Let the air out of a black buck and my best deer to date. They did go a long way...dont know why but the black buck went about 200 yards and the whitetail went about 175yds. Both good double lung hits and a blood trail a blind man could follow.

X2 on a sharp one through the boiler room. I'm a 2 blade Rage kind of guy. NAP Bloodrunners are pretty effective as well.

I've shot the Rage 2 blade for 4 years now. If you want a broadhead that is going to fly exactly like your field tips and cuts massive holes then you'll like the rage. I have a hard time getting away from them because of the sick amount of blood they leave behind and the fact that they are so accurate.
Has anyone tried the "Reign" broadheads or the "ramcat"? The ram cat has an interesting design, they are made by smoke broadheads.

I got through an elk shoulder and into the lung with a Tekan last fall. Just picked up a couple packs of the new T3's to try out in Colorado next month. I'll see how they work then, but they are pretty nasty looking... Basically a 3 blade Tekan.

That might be the best by far!! It is one of the most expensive, and they just went up in price. Alaska Bowhunting Supply just bought them out! Also new video of the bh shot into the brisket of an elephant, and took him down in short yardage.

i have used slick tricks for about 7 years now.... im going to use the grizz trick this year its has a 1 1/4 cut instead of 1 1/8. my only opinion is i want to take anything that can go wrong out of the picture and a failed mechanical is something i can control. just my opinion... one thing to keep in mind is some states are banning mbh's. here is a link from bowsite that discusses some of the pros and cons...either way good luck with your approaching season.

Most under rated broadhead I think is the Rocket mini blaster. I been shooting them for a while now, they are a lot cheaper than most and leaves a huge hole. They are a 1.75" cut 3 blade. They did have a 4 blade but stop making them for some reason, but I still have a couple...
