    Slick Trick 100 standards......wicked sharp out of the package, can't count how many times I've cut myself putting them together and they fly like field points. Also use G5 Montecs because they fly like field points and can be easily resharpened. Usually carry a Rage 2 blade in the quiver also since fall turkey season here runs during deer season.

    After reading pretty much all the arrow lethality reports published by Dr Ed Ashby I decided to try out the Grizzly broadheads he touted as being the top or always near the top for penetration and bone breaking capability, allowing the broadhead to reach the vitals more reliably than most. After shooting these I've been able to confirm almost all that he said they do. The only thing I haven't had the opportunity to do yet is put them through an animal - the reason being I just switched to them last summer and only called in and saw spike bulls last fall and couldn't shoot them (not enough antler points). I can tell you though they fly VERY well (very accurate) and cut a spiral wound channel just like he and others have observed. The only downside is they are somewhat hard to get sharp initially, but once done they hold a very good edge and are nearly indestructible.

    If you aren't familiar with the good doctor you can check out his many field test reports that he's published over the years from here (http://www.tradgang.com/ashby/). They are well worth the time as he's spent close to 30 years testing all types of broadheads, arrows, arrow weights and combinations of different weights and FOC by shooting into live and just killed African game animals of all types and sizes. He's recorded his findings in about as scientific a manner as a person could do so as to not induce bias.

    started out w GK Deadhead 100gr. Very tough,good flight,killed many deer and squirrel. Hard to find now,though. 100gr Muzzy 3 blade,could never get to fly well for practice so I never used them for huntin. Wasp Hammer SST's. Tough w good flight,great blood trail,many deer killed. 100gr Steel Force 2blade, not so tough,dart like flight,reasonably priced,extremely sharp out of the pkg. Thinking of trying them again.killed a few deer. Thunderhead 100gr,good flight w tuning,broken blades and bent ferrule after penetration. Blood trail weak. Magnus 2blade(Nuge blades). Quite tough but sometimes curls from shoulder hits. Good flight w minor tuning. Marginal blood trail but HUGE hole on last seasons deer. Was actually accused by my two brothers,dad,and brother-in-law as well as co-workers of using my 12g pump(anothe pic for A.S. To post?) Carbon Express Mayhem EXT 100gr 3blade,opened pkg, shot into target and had blades break on third shot. CX made it right by seng me a free pkg but not sure I'll hunt w them. Picked up some NAP Nitrons for $15/3pk(Walmart clearance) very sharp,minor planing,However...my bow wasn't properly tuned at that point either. Also in 100gr 3blade. Further practice will determine usage.

    now, I was checking out the RamCats yesterday. What's you review of those?

    For my Moab, Slick Trick 100 gr. mags or Shuttle T-locks. Both fly great, and get great penetration. For my Firecat, I shoot 100 gr. Rage 2 blade. Haven't been able to get fixed blades to fly well out of it so far. Still working on it though. For turkey hunting, I use a Mini-Max 3 blade expandable 100gr. Huge diameter, and puts alot of shock on the bird when hit. Definitely puts them down where you hit them, if hit well.
