For those of you that have shot them thoughts please. Trying to decide between ST 100 mags, Muzzy MX3 100 gr, or old Muzzy 3 blade? Went away from 125's with the new set up. Over on the broadhead site Muzzy rep says the MX3 does fly better than the old 3 blade due to more of a slimmer line and less planing. Sts in the sig line because I was headed that way but now don't know. Thoughts please. Thanks.

Well i happen to have shot all those head's. And still have a few of each left. Yes the Muzzy MX3's do fly alot better than the regular (longer) muzzy's. Now if your looking for almost perfect flight.....i would go with the slick tricks. They fly even better than the MX3.....alot better imo. I was very impressed with slick trick's and will probably stay with them for a long time. Plus there probably the sharpest BH out imo....very sharp.

I took my buck and a hog last year with mx3,flew right on target,buck was shot from the ground and hog from tree stand.
Buck had a massive hole and hog was same very devastating broad heads,good penatration.

I've had nothing but bad experiences w Muzzy 100gr 3blade so I've never been inclined to use any of the others. Are you set on Muzzy or open to suggestions? Did you order your HT arrows yet?

I have shot both the original 3 and 4 blade muzzy and the 3 and 4 blade in the MX series. The MX 3 blade flies best for me (right on w/ zero planing) and I like the cut width. The MX is definately an improvement. I do recommend you look around though and find the best for you, there's a bunch of quality BHeads out there. Swap and exchange w/ some buddies so it doesn't cost you an arm & leg.

My son and I have used many kinds of broad heads. From mechanical to non. We stick to non mechanical less worries. My son shot muzzy 4 blades @ 40yards, the arrow flew erratic and went end over end. This not to say muzzy is a bad broad head. Because they are not they have made substantial changes to their line. But after seeing that he sold them and bought different ones. I myself got carbon express F-15 fixed blades. I have found so far that they fly superior to any I have owned. I didn't need to tune them, for right out of the package they hit the same place my field point hit. So far I am impressed with them. They are a bit pricey but they should last.

Thanks for all the responses. @ hawgenvy I am pretty much leaning to the ST's just wanted input on the MX3' really, and no didn't order the HT's but kept your info, bought new GT's not long ago and really like them.

@ Hutc that is one wicked looking BH

Ole 3 blade Muzzy's for me, get great flight, don't dare to try and shot groups of field points and Muzzys, as the Muzzys keep cutting the vanes off whatevers in the target. :)

I've had very good luck with the Shuttle T-Lock's. Don't want to shoot groups with them either.

I got the f15 last year. Haven't shot anything yet, I will this year. I will be trying them at 60yards next. I like them because they are solid and rigid. Ike's outdoors gave a good review and some on broadhead talk. Honestly they have shot like darts for me.

The best flight I've found came from Slick Trick 100 gr. Mags, and 100 gr. Shuttle T-Locks. The T-locks out penetrate the Slicks Tricks by a bit as well. Old g/f got a complete pass through, quartering away, with 100 gr. T-Locks shooting at 48# 25 inch draw. Roughly 385 gr. arrow, so it was probably only going about 230 fps or so. Broke 2 ribs going in, 2 coming out, and left a massive exit hole. Once I get everything fine tuned, I'll be using those T-locks myself.

Well I bought some ST's and am going to see how they fly if have some problems I'll let ya know. Still thinking about trying the MX-3s also if I can't get the tricks to fly right. Plan on using the Easton guide for BH tuning. Thanks for all the input guys.

Just got in from some back yard shooting. Had an oppurtunity to shoot some shuttle T Lock 100 gr. trophy taker broadheads. I had to do nothing, zilch, nada to my bow. Punching bulls at 30 and 40 yds. w/ the best penetration I ever saw. I use MX3's now and thought they performed well but I absolutely will replace w/ Shuttle T's. I remembed Ehunter's eval of this broadhead when I saw them in my buddy's bow case. We trade broadheads all the time before we buy...We'll both be shooting T-locks this deer season.

Now you know we all like to have back-ups. I rarely part w/ any of my toys. Any how I had the feeling you were shying away from Muzzy?:)
