    Had a rage hypodermic fail MISERABLY last season, could have been a fluke head(or 2), but I can't go there again personally haha

    Yeah, I'm still on the fence if I'll used them this season for deer. Never been a fan of mechanicals.

    Mechanicals are awesome in theory, and a lot of people have had lots of success with them according to discussion forums like archerytalk.com. I do think, however, that lots of those guys are using them out of stands with very close shots. I think my experience could have been a somewhat rare instance, but I have heard of others. But really though, 30 yards behind the shoulder without even touching a rib and getting 4-5" of penetration on a deer? I mean you just don't hear about muzzy's, slick tricks, or exodus' only penetrating a few inches on a broadside shot without touching a bone. With mechanicals there's a slight chance, but with a good fixed blade you NEVER have to worry about that. At least not in my experience, and I have taken several animals with my bow-including elk.

    Slick Tricks are sharper out of the box and easier to re sharpen then T-locks. Slick tricks also fly better out of my setup.

    I've been shooting the shuttles for the last several years. They fly well and have done the job on whitetails.

    Slick Trick Magnums are my choice they are super sharp, easy to tune and I don't have to worry about them deploying while stalking, which has happened to me, and are relatively inexpensive to buy. I've tried other broad heads and mechanicals and the ST is simple and reliable. The last deer I killed was a pass thru at 30 yds I could believe the damage it caused or the size of the entry and exit holes, went through him like butter and I never found the arrow. I just ordered some more but they are Deep 6. For me they work and if it's not broke it doesn't need fixing.
    My two cents

    I've used a lot of BHs including several mechanicals.
    As I have gotten older I have leaned more toward the KISS concept.

    (apparently Umpqua and I have more in common than first names)

    Sure there are a lot of great new BHs on the market that are great.
    I pretty much use Montech G5s or Thunderheads for everything but turkey.

    Just proven heads with little to go wrong.

    I have read several posts that claim the Shuttle T locks are not sharp enough. I was going to try these for Elk , Deer and Bear this year. You would think that at $39.99 for three heads they would come razor sharp.
