slick tricks

Post by doe hunter » Sat Feb 24, 2018 3:06 pm

Got a brand spaken new BD 330 and some BEE 18" 284 to 286 grains was planning on shooting slick tricks viper trick at 125 grains but my fishing and hunting shop as the vipers on closeout at 28 bucks but are 100 grains would it really make that much difference

384 total grains should be fine. I like heavier up front too for more FOC. If you get the accuracy you want, great.

That's funny how you mention that, I usually shoot 125 g5 montecs and strikers. But this year I was going to try 125 slick trick viper trick. I've shot the grizzly trick just to see how they fly and they flew great. Seen a lot of great comments about the viper trick😊😊😊

With that weight it sounds like you've got 92gr brass inserts up front. As long as you're not using Luminoks you'll have tremendous accuracy. The Luminoks are great but remove the percentage of FOC needed. I say try them and see for yourself how you like them. Don't forget to report back and let us know what you discover.

did some figuring and the best I can figure is my FOC is 16.67 and that is with a 100 grain broadhead. so from what I have read on here that sounds fairly good :(

I was shooting 100gr points on my 18" Zombies with 92gr brass inserts and plastic nocks and helical blazers out of my matrix 380. My arrows weighed 387gr and were crazy accurate. I think you'll be pleased with the setup.
