    I like Slick Tricks and it looks like I'm going to really like their new Viper Trick.

    I really like the looks of the new Grizztrick 2...I like the 1-1/4" cutting diameter. I just hope they are quieter than the old ones!

    Slick Trick Standards blow through with authority every whitetail deer I've shot and leave a great blood trail. I'm sticking with the standards.

    I think the lil lady is going to use those Viper tricks this year with her passion rather then Montecs,to how they do.

    I bet that COC head would work really well for sticking hogs.

    The link below is from the ST Clarkrange boar hunt. The owner of ST Gary and the manager Tony used the Viper Tricks on their hogs and that is the broad head Ken Moody is showing at the end of the show. I was there with my son and witnessed the damage. It was pretty impressive. The first part of the show is all about how the heads go together (the standards), their strengths, sharpness of blades, accuracy etc.. Then Moody shoots one through a bucket of pea gravel. The last 5 minutes or so is of the hunt and if you've never hunted with dogs, which I hadn't, it was very very exciting. My wife said, "Don't you dare take that boy out with the dogs" but after two boring sits in the blind we couldn't help it. My 11 year old ended up taking one during that scene in the video with his .243. Sow wouldn't turn so he shot it in the head and it dropped, as he said, "Dead as a door nail". Got some good video of it too which will make good memories. Nice down to earth people that run ST, and Moody's place is great. His guide Johnny has been doing it a long time and is also top notch.

    What's all this talk about whistling heads? I use the standards and Mags and don't hear anything but the arrow hitting the target.

    I've heard you won't hear it unless you are down range.

    but I haven't tried or heard anything.

    Ok, its more like a hissing sound. Dont get me wrong I have been using ST's for the last 4 yrs. and they have performed great! Just those dang mulies have such big ears I'd hate to have them hear it coming before it got there.

    Just to check it out: Today I shot a Slick Tick a fews times and each time I set my bow down(carefully of course)and ran along side the arrow to the target. I had to do it from 50+ yds cuz at 20yds, the darn arrow got there 1st. Anyhow, no noise other than my hard breathing. Just wanted to let you guys know. LMAO

    I have been Shooting Slick Tricks (1-1/8") sense before Gary made the 1" head. They came out with the 1" blade for better penetration on Elk and called them the Regular and the 1-1/8" the Magnum.

    I have shot most every broadhead they have made and always gone for the Magnum when hunting season came along.

    Last season I use the Viper Trick and made a very bad shot and still recovered the deer in a few 100 yards and think I will be using the Viper Trick as my primary broadhead next season, lots of blood.

    I've killed two nice bulls with ST standards out of my compound. This year I am thinking about hunting with the Viper Tricks out of my 50lbs recurve. Just got a pack the other day and its impressive!

    Even an 1 1/4" x 1" Viper Trick would be great w/.040 thick blades @ 125 grs.

    Meleagris: Please post and tell us how the vipers do out of your recurve. I'm going to start shooting my recurve and try to be ready to hunt with it (as well as my compound) in the fall. Haven't shot it in over ten years, so I want to practice quite a bit. My recurve is 47#. I may get some limbs that are a little stiffer though, not sure. I'm considering Magnus, Muzzy (phantom), and viper tricks as my three choices for recurve heads. But I'm going to tune my bow first and see what kind of arrow it shoots best and also what grain on the field point. I suppose I need to be pushing a pretty heavy arrow with it at 47#...

    Will do. I'm planning on hunting elk with my recurve this September, and my setup will be 50-52lbs@27" with a 490-500 grain arrow. I've been talking with some experienced elk killers about arrow weights with trad gear and it seems that 9-10 grains per pound is where you want to be to maximize penetration. Once you get above that, you get to a point of diminishing returns the heavier you go and too heavy will actually hurt you. Another thing I'm doing to further enhance penetration is to put as much of that 500 grains at the tip as I can. I'm shooting a 125 grain head, but just built up some Gold Tip velocity shafts which are very light shafts, then added a 150 grain weighted insert, so 275 grains of that 500 grains us right at the tip, which is where you want it. I've got complete confidence that this setup will get the job done.
