broadhead reviews

looking for advice on broadheads and whether it is better to use fixed or mechanical.Is it true that if you shoot a fast bow it is better to use fixed vs mechanical since the mechanical may not work?

G5 montecs is what i have right now.

Re: broadhead reviews

I myself will only use a mechanical on deer or antelope. On something big like an elk, I only use standard slick tricks or slick strick magnums fixed Broadheads. I just believe that too much can go wrong with a mechanical on a big bodied and big boned animal like an elk.

Re: broadhead reviews

I don't have an opinion on mechanicals. They are illegal to use for hunting in Oregon, so I've never tried em.

I personally use, & LOVE the Shuttle T's. They fly true, & are incredibly tough !
I've also heard great things about the Slick Tricks.

Re: broadhead reviews

Like Winmag stated here in Oregon cant use mechanical. I have always used Slik Tricks, but have just switched to Montec G5. I have noticed two things, The Montecs are harder hitting and appear to be tougher so far. They have a solid shaft design. I don't know if I will stay with them, but once I stick an elk this weekend I'll let you know how much I'm convinced.

Re: broadhead reviews

Any bow can shoot any broadhead so long as its tuned properly with the correct spined arrows. Mechanicals are not an excuse to not tune your bow.

That said, if your looking at mechanicals try out the Grim Reapers. They shoot great and do a heck of a job!
