How many head of game have you shot and recovered and I am not talking white tailed deer.
Lets talk ELK, MOOSE, MULE DEER!
I am not going to go tit for tat here but first I would like to know;
How long have you been Bow Hunting?
How many head of Heavy Game have you shot and recovered?(No White Tails)
What Bow Hunting Mags do you read and or what Bow Hunting Shows do you watch?
Slick Trick is a good head but come on now the best in the world?
I just so you know do shoot a 4 blade head and I will put my Magnus against your Slick trick on heavy bone at 25 yrds at the speeds I shoot any day!
Enjoy your set up and I am glad it works for you!
Friend, you may want to re-read my post and not skim over it this time. I specifically said they are the best I have tried. Where did you get this "in the world" stuff?
Maybe you misread the part when I was comparing them to mechanicals, saying that IMO Tricks provide the best of both worlds ( a common saying in my part of the country) in that they cut a lot of extra tissue because of the extra 4th blade compared to most fixed heads that have only 3 blades. But they still fly very well (which is a typical advantage of mechanicals)
Also, read the end of my post. I listed Magnus as well as one of my favorites. What am I missing here?
I live in Idaho so I don't hunt whitetails. Last years bull was number 14 for me with a bow, a nice 7x7. Mule deer? I have lost count. No Moose.
I also understand advertising for what it is, a biased attempt to influence customers to buy their product, so I don't rely on it when choosing what to purchase, if that was your insinuation. This is one of the reasons I am on a chat forum like this, because I trust actual user input to put me on the right track if I don't have personal experience with a product. I was assuming this is why the OP was asking OUR opinions. Maybe I am wrong here
Also, if you are really wanting to compare performance on heavy bone then we are in no way on the same page of how to properly shoot an animal with archery equipment at least not with traditional setups.
If you want to talk about extreme FOC setups like Dr Ashby endorses, which requires a total arrow weight of at least 650 grains and head weights of 200+grains, 2 blades, and single bevel edges then there may be a discussion to have. But with typical 350-450 grain arrows with multiple blade heads in the 85-125gr range we simply will have to agree to disagree. There should never be a time when you are taking a shot in an attempt to hit heavy bone, nor should you be confident in said setup to perform with any consistency. This is especially true for elk and less for mule deer but I have seen a number of shoulder point hits on bug mulies that did not penetrate and left only surface wounds.
It may also be important to note that Slick Trick was the company that started the entire low profile head craze which almost every manf has now implemented. It is by far the best selling design out there, not because of advertising but because they fly better. Magnus not included, but most large headed broadheads didn't and don't fly like field points, they plane in the wind and and are a general pain in the butt. Some due should be given to those that started the fixed head accuracy craze and IMO still lead the pack. My opinion of course.
Below are a couple pics I could come up with at work. Hope they suffice your curiosity. The 2 large elk were taken at 50 and 55 yards with complete pass throughs and dropped within 50 yards of where they were shot. No heavy bone hits for me!
