When you get right down to it, there are really only three things you absolutely have to have to bowhunt — a bow, arrows and broadheads. Hence, a pack of high-quality game getters always makes an excellent holiday gift!
If your favorite bowhunter prefers mechanical broadheads, among the top, new offerings is the Slick Trick Torch. This rear-deploying mechanical is crafted from high-quality materials and features an innovative, aerodynamic design, resulting in fieldpoint accuracy and a devastating cut. The slim ferrule and titanium tip are designed to produce a precision flight pattern and hard-hitting impact, while the surgical-grade expandable blades generate a substantial, 2-inch wound channel. There’s no need to worry about O-rings or rubber bands since Slick Trick’s Deadbolt Deployment mechanism keeps blades closed in flight, yet unleashes them upon impact.

Easton Stay Sharp Broadhead Case
Easton may be internationally renowned for its world-class arrows, but the company’s Stay Sharp Broadhead Case ensures the business end of your arrow can do its job as well. Designed to protect broadheads during storage or transit, this heavy-duty case uses a rubber finger to support the ferrule, leaving the broadhead suspended in the container. This means blades don’t become dull over time due to rubbing against foam or another protective covering. The case, which features a durable ABS body with locking endcaps, is compatible with Deep Six and standard 8-32 broadheads; it can hold up to six mechanical or fixed blades up to 1⅛ in diameter.
