I’m new to fixed blade broadheads but going to get set up with them for next season. I bought the slick trick pro series viper ss. They come in pack of 3. I was wondering what the possibilities are of using the regular viper trick
(because they come in 4 packs) for practicing with. Do you guys think they might fly the same as long as they are the same weight. Naturally I know I’ll have to try both. Just thinking about saving a few bucks. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks. If I can save a few bucks that’ll give me more to spend on other hunting gear. I am pretty sure I’m addicted to all things hunting

I would practice with the same exact head/model you plan on hunting with. Slicks fly great but I wouldn't take a chance just to save a few dollars.

There is zero differnce, in fact i cant see getting the "pro" version at all. paying more for the same head, less in a pacakage and no measureble or discernable difference.

Stainless vs cold steel will not fly different. Same head different steel. Both will shoot the same as long as same weight.

X1000 If you have been in this game long enough you see that that shouldn't matter but do. I can tune my bow and get most heads of the same weight and even different manufacturers to have the same POI.......but there is no way in hell I would bank on it......verify verify verify.

Ive never seen a "Pro" ViperTrick ... Ive been using them for several years now.. they are an excellent head .... Ive been using Slicks long before they became popular .. I modified the Vipers with blades from a Grizz Trick using them to replace the bleeders making them a 1 1/16" x 1 1/4" cut ..... they make one heck of a cut going in and out with a lot of devastation in between .....

The PRO heads are the same, except with a Stainless Steel ferrule. Same as you though, shot the heads when they were sold on here by ****** back 11-12 or so years ago, just awesome heads!

As for the OPs question, I have shot both versions of the ViperTrick and have noticed zero difference in flight.

I posted a couple days ago (you must have missed it) that they have now packaged the Viper with Grizz bleeder and are calling it the Wicked Trick. No need to buy the Viper and then buy replacement blades.

So do these newer variations fly as nice as the old tricks? Have been using the standard 1oo grain for a long time.

The "WickedTricK" as Booner called it flies right with my FPs to 50 yds, with my well tuned bow.... this is my Deer head ... if I was going for Elk, I'd go back to the regular configuration for penetration on the bigger animal ... I am really glad Slick did this ... Ive done it separately for several years now

I been looking for the frizz trick blades but only see the grizz trick 2. Is the blades you’re using the grizz trick 2 or just grizz trick. Thanks

That wicked trick looks awesome. I might have to give them a try.
