broadhead opinions please

739 Views 15 Replies 14 Participants Last post by  OI_prostaffer
I need ya'lls opinion. Background 28DL, 66#, gold tip 5575, 360 total arrow weight at 293 fps. I am not positive about the arrow length but probably around 28 inches. I am going elk hunting and I am torn between the slick trick standard or a Magnus 2 or 4 blade. My arrow is pretty light so that is why I am contemplating a coc. Please help.

With your set-up I think I would use a COT broadhead and the best one would be, IMO, Slick Trick's RazorTrick.

You would do very well with the Slick Trick Standard. They were created for large body game like Elk...and you have plenty of KE to drive it deep. Keep the blades sharp, aim small and you will not regret that broadhead choice.

I'm going for Elk this fall also and somebody with a lot of experience suggested the Muzzy Phantom 4 blade. It looks very wicked and is a COC but I have not tried it. Anybody had experience or thoughts on that one???

i carry 2 different broadheads in my quiver. a slick trick (4 blade) and a striker (3 blade). i use 2 different broadheads to mix it up a little with luck. i would put both in if they shoot the same. either of the 2 you picked are good choices for your setup. one might be your lucky broadhead!!

Stay away from the phantom especially at the speed your shooting, you will have a very hard time getting them to fly straight. Altho the muzzys are a great broadhead, I would highly recommend the Wac'em broadheads, they fly great with no adjusting from your field points and are the sharpest best penetrating fixed blade on the market...IMHO

Anything by G5. That's all I use. They are sharp and tough. I killed a number of deer each year with one broadhead!
