    Although I do not use either one, if I had to choose, it would be the Slick Trick Vipertricks.

    For fixed blade I've used Muzzy 3 and 4 blades, Slick Trick Magnum and Standard, and G5 Montecs. I shoot a 125 grain Slick Trick Magnum now. They fly great and I have killed several deer with them. They're relatively cheap, razor sharp, they can be resharpened easily, and replacement blades are available.

    The Montecs were very dull and more expensive. Though the construction was solid and they flew very well, I can't see spending the extra money for a broad head that I have to sharpen before I even use it.

    The Muzzy's wouldn't fly right with my bow. They were VERY erratic. The flight was terrible with both the 3 and 4 blades. I no longer use them because I can't get them to tune. With that said, I have not tried them with my current set-up. The last time I tried them was in 2012 with my Heli'm. However, with that bow I couldn't group 3 Muzzy's in a Block B16 target and I switched to Slick Tricks and I was grouping with my field points.

    Slick Trick Standards, had badly bent blades a few times hitting ribs on Muzzy 4 blades years ago. ST's are still scary sharp after hitting bone and have never bent a blade yet.

    Well I recently read that Muzzy is making a mechanical now so that would be a good choice.

    Ive used both. Both are great broadheads but I feel like the slick tricks fly better for me. I'll chose slick trick over muzzy any day

    if I were to ever go back to a fixed blade it would be the slick trick standard again.
