Been running around last week with clients but got the opportunity to harvest two management impala rams.

Equipment used:

83# 05 Allegiance
125gr Slick Trick standard broad head
Gold Tip XT Hunter arrows
Arrow weight 620gr

1st Impala shot at 22 yards quartering away.

Impala went 60 yards.

2nd Impala shot at 23 yards quatering shot.

Went 50 yards.

Slick Tricks did the work every time.

I like what I see regarding the exit wound. It is gaping and must leave a proper blood trail.

How noisy are they really? Every time I mention them people make the remark that it is a nice broadhead but the fore blader is very noisy.

I have no problem with regards to them making a noise.

As you know Impala is the best string jumper there is and they were not aware of the arrow.

I used 4 inch quick spin vanes and I have heard that people say the are also noisy for hunting.

Wait until the impala is relaxed next to the water and aim small.

I also used a Slick Trick by my Nyala shoot and was very surprised how good they work. My shoot was at 24 yard with a 74 lbs Mathews Conquest II and 418 grain Carbon Express 3D select 400 arrow speed 296 fps. The arrow wend completely through. At the video I can see that the Nyala jumped in the moment if the arrow touch him.
I mean this arrow heads make no noise by flying.

Dis darm 2 mooi bokke daai!

........Jy sit met soveel energie in daai pyle dat jy seker jou pyle stukkend skiet teen die bome agter die bokke:eek:

Watse ke kry jy Gerhard?

Gerhard

So 91ft/lbs.

My idee is om die rooibok teen 'n boom vas te skiet so dat ek hom nie hoef te soek nie.:wink:

Spot net.

Ek het die selfde pyl gebruik vir al twee bokke. Net die replacement blades vevang. Kan hulle nou weer skerp maak en dan weer skiet.
