Slick Trick Magnum Fixed-Blade Broadheads or Replacement Blades
First time using these this summer.
Bow is set up at 65lbs pushing 245 fps with 100gr ST Magnums on 440gr Axis N-fused arrows... I would assume even greater penetration and Damage with faster set up's. I believe in accuracy over penetration and speed.
Side note: (There was less than 1/2 of a grain weight difference between all three BH's in my package...)
I just took a 225lb Axis buck yesterday (7/11/2011) at 63 yds. Yes I know its a long shot but it was dead calm and a large target... He ran 70 and dropped stone dead. After traveling the 63 yds to the target the broadhead was still able to pass squarely through a rib just behind the shoulder at a downward angle continue through about 20+ inches of tissue finally lodging in the far ribcage.
The head and blades are in near perfect condition, razor sharp and still useable! The only discernible damage was a slight dinging along the blades that lodged into the far rib. After being shot the blades were still sharper than a bunch of new broadheads on the market today.
I do get my bow laser tuned and practice almost daily. That being noted, these broadheads do fly identical to fieldpoints out to 40 yds in a 5 -10 crosswind wind. At about 45 they begin to have about an inch drift off the field points Point Of Impact. At 50 that increased to 2 inches and finally at 60-65 they are drifting 4 inches from my point of aim which was only about 3 inches low and to the right of where the field points impacted with the same left to right 5-10 wind.
These broadheads are rock solid, they fly as advertised like field points and even Ray Charles could have followed the blood trail from my high double lung shot created by the 4 blades. And best of all they are under 30 bucks!!!

Slick Trick Magnum Fixed-Blade Broadhead Review
The Slick Trick Magnum does the job. It has great confidence building accuracy and penetrates well. The packaging is very condensed and can be kept in a bow case very easily. There are a few other fixed-blade broadheads out there that might penetrate a little more deeply but overall it will serve you well.

Doesn't fly like field points.
I purchased these broad heads thinking they would fly like field points, well they do only if you broad head tune your bow. Just like most fixed broad heads you need to tune your bow so they fly straight. I understand that but the reason a gave them a 3 on the review is that the package states flies like field points. If that is the case then they should fly like your field points and not have to retune your bow. Other than that they are razor sharp and very sturdy looking broad heads.
