I am thinking of the epiks

and what bow will you be shooting them with

just want to see what everyone is using

Atom BH. I've really done my homework on these and ordered them yesterday.

could it be a design flaw in the "Nagster" quiver? :scratchhead:

HaHa No, I think its a design flaw in the broadheads, for 40 bucks there should be no reason these things cant stay closed, and I shouldnt have to replace a rubber ring after I just bought them.

so Its time for me to move on to something else.

Im not knocking them at all,because I have seen too many people use them with success, I just didnt have those same results

I hear the grim reapers are pretty deadly too.

Staying with fixed blades, trying Steel force Phatheads this year. They flew great in my testing, can't wait to see what they do to a deer.

well i'm more than likely going with the slick tricks. Very very very sharp, and they shoot great. I'll be hunting with a GT500. To much to go wrong with mechanicals. Some of my friends have lost deer on them. Spitfires are a big NO. If your going with mechanicals i would shoot the Grim Reapers. Everybody i've seen and heard about using them love them. Check them out.

If this link doesn't work, go www.g5outdoors.com (http://www.g5outdoors.com) , go to the video section, hunting, and watch the Saskatchewan bear hunt. I shot that bear with a Tekan II. You can also see a Wisconsin whitetail I shot there as well with a Striker Magnum.

I'm not giving up my Phatheads yet, but I will be using Silver Flames for the first time this year. They fly just like my Phatheads and look really mean.

Slick tricks worked great last year and I have some Spitfires that need used too. Both have been great performers for me.

Just picked up some Innerlock Stainless Extremes, they are a 3 bladde 100 gr head. I shot them when I got home and they hit dead on were my field tips are hitting. They are lazer sharp as well. Bought extra blades so I am good to go for the season.

I shoot a variety, Steelheads, Sidewinders, but my main broadheads are Montecs and Strikers. Shooting the Montec CS this year. I just love the resharpening capability and durability of the Montecs.

I was wondering about these Ray. What's the scoop?

I'll be shooting 125 grain Silver Flame XL's out of my Z28. For the last 22 years I have been hunting with stikbows, heavy arrows, and 2 blade coc heads. My last heads were the 190 grain Grizzly designed with Dr. Ashby's testing as a basis. I looked at the variety of single bevel heads that Alaska Bowhunting Supply is offering. I liked a lot about those heads but had allready bought the SF's. These 1 1/2" wide Flames hit right with my field points once I tuned everything properly.

G5 Black Tekans this season. BTW, I have shot mechanicals for the last 10 seasons from Rockets, Wasp, Grim reapers, Rocky mountains, Rage, etc and none of them suffered that kind of damage going through whitetail rib cages. If their ribs were as tough as steel drums then the test would have some validity.

My two broadheads of choice! Have used both, and still do.

The only thing I noticed about slick tricks is I don't seem to get a great blood trail.

I know that seems to be contrary to what a lot of people say but I had the same experience. I don't use them anymore.

The best blood trail that I have ever seen came from a G5 Tekan.
It was like you through an axe through an animal. lol

In my experience with fixed blades:

Best blood trail with good penetration- Thunderhead or Rocky

Best penetration with poor blood trail- G5 montecs

Poor penetration and weak blades- Muzzy

Worst penetration- any expandable
I'll admit I have only tried a few expandables, I've lost two deer due to poor expandable performance
