I was a long time user of G5 Montecs, but this season I will be using NAP Hellrazors. They flew well for me the other day at the range, and those suckers are scary sharp out of the box. Montecs took some work before hunting with them.

Triton WAC 'ems always worked pretty good too. Just not "better enough" to warrant the extra coin.
Put ------ (fill in the blank with whatever you choose) in the right spot and start scribbling on that tag.

Switched to Slick Tricks last year after shooting 3 different heads and i havent had any problems with them. They fly great.

Took the Deer in my profile with the ST Magnums.

Slick tricks, Strikers, or Buzzcuts are good ones.

100gr. Magnus Buzzcuts. Hit the same as fieldpoints. If they get messed up after a shot just send in and they replace. Life time Guarantee. I've sent in plenty and they replace them no problem.

I've had the G5 montec and loved them, decided to try something new this year... Crimson Talon XT suppose to have a spiral effect

http://midatlanticarchery.com/broadheads/

They might have got me on all the cool advertising I have seen for them, but I'm hoping they are as good as they claim!

Guess the tip of the MZ can fold over if you hit a shoulder blade or something with the split AL ferrel versus the solid steel one piece ST.

Won't happen in an animal. Shot them quite a few years and would be 100% confident using them again. Lodged one in a galvanized steel cattle gate up to the middle of the ferrule. Damaged the blades prying it out but the tip and ferrule were like new.

Not sure what the "best" is but alot of good heads out there.

SilverFlame XL's two blade penetration and 1.5" diameter. Hard to beat so far, I might go with my single bevel abowyer though, have yet to see them in action. But if I shoot either of them through a compound its going to be at something big, lots bigger than white-tail.

Another vote here for the slick tricks. I've been using them now for 4 years and they have been excellent. I have been experimenting with the G5 Striker Magnums though. So far 5 hogs and one bear have not made it further than 25 yards after being hit.

Snuffer, sharpen with a large file. Old bowhunter turned me onto these a long time ago. He said when you cut yourself with and razor sharp blade it does not start bleeding right away, takes a few minutes for the blood to flow. If you cut yourself with an old jagged piece of metal you bleed like a stuck hog. Never lost a deer with the snuffers. Started shooting them when you had to glue them onto the tapered ferrels. That was a long time ago. But broad heads are kind of like bullets, all of them will get the job done, just got to make sure you put it in the right place.

Where are you guys getting your slick tricks at? They are $28 most everywhere online for a 3 pack. I can get a 6 pack of Muzzy's at academy for $34 bucks and it also includes a practice head. I wouldnt mind trying the slick tricks out, but they are nearly double the price. Are they THAT much better than muzzys?

I used my last mechanical this past weekend in oklahoma. With the mechanical I either had awesome blood trails or the animal didn't run very far. I had a pack of muzzy four blades that I started using. I made perfect shots on two spikes. One ran about 75 yards and the other about 50. The only draw back is I had no blood trail to follow. Are your four blades the 1" cut or are they bigger?

What kind of blood trails do you get from your slick trick standards? I have a pack but hesitate to use them b/c the cut diameter seems a little small?
