Default Rattling Slick Trick on Gold Tip Pierce Platinums

Does anyone have suggestions on quieting or stopping a rattling sound from my hunting arrow setup? I was thinking of that white threading tape/material used for facets? Any ideas? This wasn't a problem with my Easton full metals jackets.

Hmm...I shoot the same arrow and slick tricks and have never had a problem with any rattling from them. Do you have loose blades or what?

Yes every blade is loose. I have tried 6 of my dozen arrows and so far all rattle. Kinda bummed because they fly great.

Are the broadheads meant for the "deep six" inserts that are common on the FMJ's? The thread length may be causing the head to not seat fully against the arrow shoulder

Also, check the ring around the ferrel of the head, its beena few years since I shot slick tricks but the ring may have a notch to fit over a blade so the head fits flush against arrow shoulder

Just looking at your pic and the ferrule ring is not seated against the rear of the blades. Thatís definitely why they are loose and making noise. Find out why.

Yes it's not seated up against the blades but that's all it will go.

Then maybe your inserts aren't set deep enough.

Well its either a manufacturing defect (which is unlikely) or they are not assembled properly. I never had nor have I heard of that situation before and tons of folks shoot them. I would take them apart and reassemble and see what happens.

Sounds like 1 of 2 options.

1. There is glue or some foreign object in your insert stopping the head from threading in all the way.

2. The insert isnít deep enough.

Both can be fixed by shortening the threads on the broad head by one or two threads

Good points! Not uncommon to get adhesive in the shaft ID with full outs. As far as the thread depth most Outserts are tapped all the way through, not real familiar with the Gold Tip full outs though.

I had a pack of Grizz Tricks that the ferrules were not quite right and would do the same thing. It did not matter what arrow or insert you would put them on, the blades would not tighten up. Use the same blades on another ferrule and they were just fine.

Another idea is to put a small washer between the head and the shaft. Try taking one off another head and test it

Where is the little collars that come in the pack? Mine have little collars that slide on the threaded shaft, the blades bottom out on them.

No, the ring/washer is installed in his pic. Its just not seated properly.

cheap route, go on line an order a neoprene washer the size you need to act as a spacer.

https://www.ebay.com/p/Toogoor-50-Pc...9164068&chn=ps

or get some cork gasket material and run the head through it into the insert and trim it with a razor blade.

At one point there were some adapters available, I use them on my FMJs. They are a spacer ring that adds a bit of material on the end of the arrow as well as adapt to the diameter of the arrow. But I don't see them on the Slick Trick website.

I looked too. The problem with using a rubber o ring or plastic washer is the broad head wont be seated hard against a shoulder. I tried the o ring deal and when I put the arrow in the run out gage the broad head wobbled bad.

Thanks for all the information but I finally figured out what happened. It seems that the five broadheads on the quiver from my old hunting bow developed rust on the area of the ferrule where the blades seat onto the ferrule. These where new broadheads so I assumed that the broadhead was not the problem....never assume . All five new broadheads where rusty! my only consolation on the slick tricks is that even though they where not seating properly they still shot bull eyes at 25 and 35.

Thanks again to all that helped me out.

Simple solution, use O-ring washers. They've been used for broadhead tuning since before I got into archery (I've used them for nearly 30 years)

I have had to add a chamfer to the ID of the insert or BAR ring to get mine to seat properly. It's usually because the sharp edge contacts the inner radius of the shoulder. However, it is nice you can do this with this style of broadhead. I cannot eliminate the rattle/wiggle of the bleederblades on my Magnus Stingers.
