I have tested the slick trick magnum. They fly pretty darn good but I have not tried to shoot an animal with one yet. I agree a lot of jabbering about them on the bowhunting forums about them.

Now last year's spring bear camp a couple of successful bear hunts used them and they got their bear. The holes were nothing unusual.

Leo made a great suggestion when he mentioned G5 Strikers. They have a replaceable blades and it's very sharp. They come in 100 and 125 grain.

G5 new Magnum striker is a 125 grain but it's a huge cutin broadhead. They mention somewhere in the literature they are for in close shooting. I agree. Unfortunately when I tested it didn't fly so great, and that could have been me.



I think the regular 100 and 125 grain fly the best for me compared to of the other broadheads I've tested and I was glad to read Leo agreed.

7point, I use the Razorcaps and have shot them out a distance of 60 yards and they had great accuracy. I shot a group of three aroows and the grouping was less then 2 inches. Woody used them over in Africa and got grreat penetraton on one of his animals at 55 yards, and it was a pass thru.

I just want to add one thing here because FOC has been brought up recently. I really think this is important.

Your particular arrows will dictate what grain head you shoot not you.

If you are looking at both 100 grain heads and 125 grain heads because that is what your shafts are spined for. Try both before you decide! One absolutely will fly better than the other especially down range. Usually at least 25yds is where you'll start to see a loss in accuracy with one or the other.
