Slick Trick broadheads

I've been shooting mag 125's for 5 years now and love them. Now I see the new ones have a different package and come in 4 packs instead of 3. I heard the quality of the "new" ones are not as good. Anyone tried the news ones yet? Thanks...Shuey

Re: Slick Trick broadheads

Used to use the old ones with great success. Of all of them, I preferred the 100 grain mags and the Razor Tricks.

I have not played with the new ones since they were sold. I suspect the quality is down, but have no first hand experience to confirm or debunk it.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

What exactly makes you suspect that?

It has to do with the timing of our archery season.

Re: Slick Trick broadheads

That doesn't surprise me one bit. Just curious since you stated you haven't seen or handled them, but the quality is lower. Wasn't sure how you arrived at that conclusion without any experience with them.

Which is why I said "I suspect".

Re: Slick Trick broadheads

Ive been using rage broadheads since they came out with amazing success but i have been thinking about trying the slick tricks this year. A lot of guys seem to really like them and im curious to see what all the hype is about. hahaha ( I have never harvested a deer with a fixed blade broadhead) Sounds crazy right?

Re: Slick Trick broadheads

They look the same to me.. package may have changed but the same German blade steel is used.. only change I see is the ferrule design to accept smaller dia. bolts... the old and new 100 gr mags weigh the same according to my scale..blades are just as sharp..

Re: Slick Trick broadheads

Every time I try something other than slick tricks I end up going back. Standard 100's have shot very good from my verticle bows and crossbows.
Shot field points, rages and slick tricks out to 80 yards last year and there was roughly and inch of difference in impact between the 3. Since I'm shooting half of that distance at game I went back to slick tricks. Slug size holes.
