    Alright guys,

    I can’t make up mind between these two. Anyone have any experience with them? Help me make up my mind. I think I’m leaning toward the 3 blade design of the Rocky Mountain Titanium. Both have a 1 1/8″ cutting diameter. Looking for input from others with some experience using these heads before I take one of them into the field. How do they fly? Do they seem accurate? Thanks.

    I shot the Ti100′s for two years and switched to the slick tricks this year.

    Both fly basically the same, and both have performed good for me, the slick tricks may be more forgiving of a not perfectly tuned bow, and the way the blades lock together is much stronger than the Ti’s.

    I would say to go with the ST’s, they’re stronger, may fly a little better, and produce huge holes, not to mention they cost about $10 less.

    I have been shooting the 100 grain Rocky Titanium for 3 years I have not had any problems. I have killed 6 deer with them and I could not expect more from a broadhead. The accuracy is excellent but like any broadhead your bow has to be tuned. My drenalin shoots these broadheads like my field points to 60 yards.

    I have shot both and will never change from Slick Tricks. The Titaniums are good heads.. super sharp, plenty accurate, but I have found them to be less than durable no matter how many animals Bruce shot with one head [=}=]

    i would go with st’s because they are both tough as nails and fly good but the st’s have an extra blade.

    I have shot the Ti’s and they are not really that durable !! I have had a bunch of tips bend and some ferrules bent !!

    It is a good flying and good penetrating head but not worth the money IMO !! I have not shot the ST but would think they are the better buy !!! [=}=]

    Thanks for the input guys. I went ahead and ordered the Slick Trick’s this afternoon. Got the 100 grain magnums on the way. I got a pack of 3 heads AND replacement blades for what the Rocky’s cost. Thanks again.

    Slick trick- Don’t think there is a more durable ferrule on market… blades are sharpest I have seen. Period. They aren’t overly expensive. Fly great and produce MASSIVE holes as well as great blood trails… My family have 6 deer in freezer this year and slick tricks were used on all of them (first year I have used fixed blades) Unless there is something revolutionary I NEVER see myself using a different head…

    In fact I am planning on purchasing 2-4 packs this year and multiple blades to stockpile :)

    You can not go wrong with either one they are both really accurate and work great i have not shot deer with the tricks but the rockys i would refer to any 1 they leave one heck of a blood trail my blood trails were about 3ft wide on every deer i shot with them i would still be shooting them if i could find them and had the $ for them But either head will work great i would use the rockys myself because they are awesome!!! :thumbup

    I’ll be joining you in trying the ST mags this Year! One of the things that swayed me to try the ST (other than many, many , great testimonials) was the fact that the man who makes them pretty much moniters the bow forums for ST threads to answer any questions and concerns hunters may have!! That is great service after the sale!! And to me speaks volumes not only about the Quality of the head but of the man that makes them!! A rarity in todays world! I believe he goes by “Olhootowl”! =D/>” title=”Applause” />  <img src=
