    I have seen a G5 striker do it and a Ramcat do it. The G5 punched through the blade at 25 yards and broke an opposing rib. Bull went 75 yards. The Ramcat was a quartering away shot at 40 yards. Went in by the last rib and exited the opposite shoulder blade for a complete pass through. Bull went 50 yards.

    Used the shuttle-t's one year and put a forward shot on one @ 12 yards. That head acted like it hit a brick wall. This was towards the back of the bulls shoulder to, not the thick stuff. After that, me and my brother tested the shuttle on various dense objects. Epic fail. The blades are to steep for dense bone. So yes, a good head will punch a shoulder blade, and others will not.

    I really liked the one piece design of the G5, and they flew out of my bow really well, but they just weren't very sharp, and I could not get them sharp at all, with either of G5's sharpening devices, or any others. I ultimately got ride of them this year, to go with the G5 mechanical head. Those are some sharp blades. I really think you can't go wrong with a Muzzy as far as sharpness and accuracy is concerned in a fixed blade. Muzzy's might not be the sexiest head out there, but they have killed a ton of game.

    I have had great luck with shuttle t's. Although as mentioned above I didnt like the penatration but flew the best for me..I went to a 125 grain shuttle t and the penatration is very respectable and arrow flight was still the best. The loss of FPS was not enough to worry me and my shooting seems to have improved slightly at longer distances and the bow seems to have found its sweet spot. Just something to think about.

    Joe H & Ruttin: I have heard a lot of guys mention Slick Tricks on the hunting forums I frequent. I have not seen them carried at a local shop, so I haven't run into anyone shooting them. I have been doing my homework on-line. They look like a great design! I really like how the blades lock into the head. They are definitely on my short list now. I was leaning heavily to the Shuttle T Lock, but I am giving the Slick Trick Magnum 100 grain a serious look. I also like the idea that I can sharpen them more easily then the Shuttle T Lock.

    It seems the Shuttle T-Lock is the standard for forgiving flight on a fixed blade. Is that safe to say? Would I be giving anything up with the Slick Tricks?

    I have also heard some reports of Slick Tricks being a bit noisy in flight. Is that true?

    Safely, of course, stand down range of any arrow in flight and it is hissing down range. Whether it's a hiss, buzz, whatever, there's gonna be noise. Is it probably going to affect where you hit the animal...not likely. Slick Tricks do have some noise when traveling downrange, but I'm a big believer in them. ST Magnum 100s for me. They very well may be louder than other broadheads though???

    I originally responded that I didn't hear any noise but then I went out and shot a bunch of arrows and I can hear a faint whistle even with just my field points and it could be a hair more with the Slick Tricks. I haven't got the best hearing thanks to the sound level of rock concerts in the early 80's.

    I haven't had any problem with animals jumping the string with them I know that.

    As far as noise with the Slick Trick Magnums I think they are super quiet, that is compared to my Magnus Stingers. As for sharpening the blades, I replaced the ones I am going to shoot but took my acusharp and sharpened the used blades, and it seemed to work well.

    Well....starting this thread I was looking at the Shuttle T-Lock and the G5 Montec. I ended up ordering the Slick Trick 100, in the standard blade width. I like the reviews I have read on their accuracy, the design of how the blades lock in, the short ferrule length, the one-piece steel ferrule, the heavier 0.035" blade thickness, the replaceable blades, and the reported sharpness of the blades. I am super partial to a "simple" well thought out design, and this head seems to be just that. Can't wait to try them out! Thanks for all the help guys!!

    It sounds like if I ever want to make these "magnum" heads, I can just get some of the magnum blades. Does anyone have experience with that?

    Yes, all you need to switch to Magnums is the Magnum blades. Same ferrule. Standards are a great choice for bigger game (theoretically more penetration), while the Magnums are unbeatable for deer-sized critters. If you buy a bastard file (the forum spell checker probably won't like that word!), the blades are thick enough that you can file out any curled blades from pass throughs into rocks, etc. then lay them on a stone and get them razor sharp again too.
