Blackout Speed Trap

I was at Cabela's yesterday and saw the Blackout Speed Trap. I think this is a fairly new target as it is not on Cabela's web site yet. It's 18.0 x 18.0 in size and is rated for field points and broadheads up to 540 fps. Shooting a Bulldog 440 my bolts bury pretty deep into the Rinehart target so th...

Removing Decals From Bolts

I have read on the forum that you can remove the decals on bolts with acetone. Can this be accomplished with a simple wipe down or do you need to soak them for a period of time?


Thanks

Re: Slick Trick Questions

Deerstalker,

What kind of fletching are you using and is it off-set or helical?

Re: Slick Trick Questions

Hi Don, The video was helpful. I always assumed that once the broadhead is seated hard against the front face of the insert it would not move but the video shows this is not the case. There must be more play between the components than I realized. I will use a set of V-Blocks to check my alignment w...

Re: Slick Trick Questions

Is there any actual difference between the Xbox tricks and the original tricks? They look the same to me?

I noticed the Xbox Tricks only have the 1 1/8 cutting option while the originals have the 1.0 option which I think would fly better?

Re: Slick Trick Questions

I do use 110 gr front inserts and also a true helical on my vanes so I am going to start off with the 100 grain to see how they fly and group. Hopefully my POI will be close to my field points. Based on everyone's feedback my optimism is high.

Slick Trick Questions

I have seen many positive comments regarding Slick Tricks and am planning on giving them a try this hunting season for whitetail. Looking at the crossbow tricks in both 100 and 150 grain versions but am not sure which weight to try? If anybody has experience with either one of these versions I would...

Re: Bulldog 440

I have been shooting my Bulldog 440 for about four weeks now and could not be happier with it. I choreographed 440 fps spot on with a 350 bolt and factory string. The new ACP trigger is very good and breaks clean like a glass rod. So for I have shot it out to 60 yards with real tight groups. After a...

Re: FLETCHING ADVICE NEEDED

Thanks for the advice everyone. Yes some advice on the front inserts would also be appreciated. I use the same blue top Gorilla glue. I usually run the glue all along the inside diameter of the shaft a full 360 degrees and then slide the insert down inside. The problem I run into using this method i...

FLETCHING ADVICE NEEDED

Getting ready to build some bolts with an Arizona EZ-Fletch and was looking for some advice regarding adhesives. What type of adhesive works best and has anybody developed any tricks or techniques for evenly applying it to the vanes without apply too much? I use Blazer vanes and in the past have use...
