Slick Trick broadheads


Young Gun

Recommended Posts

Have any of you shot Slick Tricks? I've read some other forums and they all say that they fly just like they are practice tips and leave huge exit wounds. They also say they almost always get pass thru's. What would give me more K.E.? A lighter broadhead like 85, or a heavy one like 125 grains. I'm pulling 50 lbs. and shooting 25 1/2 inch carbon express arrows with 100 gr. broadheads. What do you think my K.E. would be?

This is all good stuff to know and understand, but don't get caught up in this stuff too much. It's more important to tune your bow and practice with your broadheads. But the most important thing is put the arrow in the boiler room and the rest won't matter.

Hey Young Gun, I shot 4 deer with slick tricks last year and liked the performance. They fly great and leave a big hole in the deer. However, I shoot a bow with more than 80lbs of KE. Due to the steep angle of the blades and 4 blades I think it takes a little more bow to get the slicks to pass though than some other heads. With your short draw and lower poundage I would look for a cut on contact type head to get better penatration. Just my opinion...

I agree with camdu7, stick to a cut on contact fixed blade. If your bow is tuned you should not have any problems shooting them. Shot placement is the biggest key. I don't think you'll end up with enough KE to be sure you'll have no penetration problems with a mechanical like a slicktrick.

Gus you might have Slick Tricks confused with another broadhead. Slick Tricks are a fixed blade broadhead, but they are not considered a cut on contact blade because they have a one piece steel ferrule. The Magnus line of broadheads would be a good example of a cut on contact blade.

DOH! You are correct. For some reason I was thinking about grim reapers when I wrote that response. My hand/brain coordination was off. Thanks for pointing out my error, I don't want to give bad advise.

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?
