    Screw the montecs back on your arrows and go kill some deer. Why does this have to be a difficult and expensive decision?

    First I recommend a G5 arrow square and then try a Slick Trick, Wacem Triton, Shuttle T loc or a QAD Exodus. All these heads will fly out of a tuned bow and with squared arrows that spin true.

    Your on the right track with the montecs. The slick tricks fly good too and do more damage than they look capable of.

    I've never had a problem with my MX3's! I am still going to try out the Rage Chisel Tips I won last season but I will still have a couple MX3's in my quiver.

    So opening day is approaching and i want to try a new head, Ive been shooting Montecs that fly great. My only issues with the montecs are that they are quite loud in flight and once dull they are a real pain to sharpen!

    So i bought a few heads I bought These heads called The Reign, they were on sale for 10 bucks at a clearance event at a local shop today. They look ok but fly like crap! these are pretty pricey heads when not on sale...no wonder why they were on clearance.

    I also bought these cheap CX fixed blade heads that resemble the silver flame heads except they are 16 dollars for 3 instead of 90....BUT they also fly like crap besides one of the three. I guess you get what you pay for.


    What fixed blades fly nice for you? I think i may go back to the first heads I ever used Magness Stinger! Im also considering G5 strikers because of the changeable blades.
    Tune bow, watch your form, make sure you spin check arrows, make sure you have proper spine, then go shoot whatever head you want
    If you ask for my opinion don't get butt hurt when you don't like it.

    I agree that Stingers fly very well. In addition, QAD Exodus heads are accurate from a tuned setup and are very sharp. Looking forward to using an Exodus head in the field this fall, but will likely have a Stinger on board in my quiver as well.

    VPA.....fly great. I shoot the 100gr unvented and they are quiet and fly with my fieldpoints and penetrate better than any broadhead that I have ever shot!!!

    Love my tricks. Shooting the 100gr mags and can't complain!

    I dont think I will ever give up my montecs after killing 3 deer with the same head. Resharpening is not that hard with the g5 stone.

    Hey brother, stick with the Montek's. That you hear them "hiss" is immaterial. When a deer "jumps the string", it is reacting to the noise from the bow long before any sound from the arrow can make any difference.
    A good bow with one of those small round aiming thingy's in the string. A rest, sight, stabilizer and quiver attached to it. Some arrows with very sharp broadheads on one end, FOB's on the other. And a release.

    You wont find a fixed blade head more quiet than a VPA nonvented. They fly great as long as your set up is tuned and you have good shooting form. Expandables are good at hiding other problems and vented heads can be more forgiving than nonvented especially in light models. Our unvented 125s or 150 would be the way to go if you have the arrow spine for them. All VPAs have a satisfaction guarantee.

    Tuned enough to shoot montecs and magness stingers pretty damn good, and good enough to have touching arrows at 20-30 yards with field points. I "tuned" it myself. Using an arrow level set and bow square. I think its gotta be the arrows or the broad heads. Ill figure something out.

    another thing i really do not like about the reign is the points are anything but pointy! I pushed down on the point with my finger with some force and it didnt hurt...I lied all these broad heads are making me suicidal and i was pushing one against my head!
    step away from the broadheads. you've got so much to live for, bro.

    now...where were we. if you want to spend as little money as possible, use the montecs. they work. they just do, ok. however, if you much switch, get some G5 Strikers. they fly great (i have a similar setup as you) and they group well. they are super sharp. you can get replaceable blades. and...they are super sharp.
