Locked-Down Design

As archers seek faster arrow speeds with bows easily breaking the 300 fps mark, it seems there has been a trend of putting aside large cut-on-contact broadheads for super compact mini heads that are almost as short as they are wide.

As archers seek faster arrow speeds with bows easily breaking the 300 fps mark, it seems there has been a trend of putting aside large cut-on-contact broadheads for super compact mini heads that are almost as short as they are wide. Minimal blade surface results in less wind planing on these mini-heads, which when shot at longer distances, hold tighter groups shot after shot.

Slick Trick jumped into the archery industry in 2000 at the AMO show with an industry leading "super-short" broadhead that helped pioneer the "mini-head" craze. The highly durable 100-percent stainless steel, four-bladed broadhead uses the patented Alcatraz Bladelock design to secure four .035-inch stainless steel blades within the solid one-piece steel Rhinoferrule.


The new "Slick Trick" comes in three different grain weights; 85, 100 and 125 grains with an option of magnum blades on the 100- and 125-grain models, which increases the cutting diameter from one-inch to 11⁄8 inches. To lighten the weight, the 85 grained Slick Trick owns lighter .030-inch thick blades for a one-inch cutting diameter while the 100 and 125-grain models include beefier .035-inch thick blades cutting an impressive one-inch cutting diameter.


As mentioned previously, the 100- and 125-grain Slick Tricks are also offered with Magnum Blades, slicing a 11⁄8-inch cutting diameter. Blades are held securely in place with a stainless steel washer, which also protects the arrow shaft and insert on bone penetrating hits. The Slick Trick is a great head with honest field point flight characteristics. I hunt out west so I'm always looking for a broadhead that flies true out to at least 50 yards. The Slick Trick fits the bill, and in just 15 minutes, I was smacking bull's-eyes from long distance; perfect for western hunting scenarios.
