I'm shooting Kayuga Pilot Cut single bevel 150 gr heads(from Australia). I really like these.



But I'm always trying new stuff and just ordered some new heads from Vector Arrows. They won't be released for a few more weeks but I liked the looks of them. Similar to a Simmons Mako which is one of my favorites except a solid 150 grain head w steel ferrule. 1 1/4" cut w 7/8" bleeders.

Why do you want to change? Not happy with them or just looking for something new?

Magnus black hornet, iron will wide and solid, I’ve been impressed with the kudupoint +

Wanna try the Simmons mako as a Magnus alternative since Magnus has such a long lead time

If you want a fixed head just shoot a Exodus. Watch the lusk review nothing else really competes. Value, tough, penetration, deflection, cutting surface etc.

Not to mention they fly like lasers. And I love the fact that if you donít get a pass thru, the blades will fold forward on the arrow removal and cut on the way out because they are sharpened on the back side.

Iíve been really happy with the results of Ramcats as well but as someone said above, the getting in and out of quiver is kind of a pain. Iím sure there are quivers that fit them better but not the one I have currently.

Iron will and Exodous. Both kill really well. I’ve killed plenty with ram cats but I’ve also lost a few blades on them.

Have used Zwickey’s since the 80’s and Wensel Woodsman’s more recently. This year trying Cutthroat single bevel. 125gr for the longbow and 250gr for the compound. So far the 250’s are grouping right with the field points and bare shafts. They can get ultra scary sharp.

If you have no gripes about SlickTricks why look for a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.

I'm normally a mechanical shooter with my compound but i have an abundance of slick tricks so this year I'm gonna try them out just to preserve some of my mechanicals, which are basically a one and done head.

For the recurve I'm shooting 150 Grain Sharpshooters, 125 Grain Magnus Stingers and 125 Grain Cutthroats

It's been 125 grain Ramcats for several years with no plans to change.

I like them for the reasons mentioned above and do admit that they're a little difficult to manage on spot and stalk hunts.
