magnus stinger - 4 blade is the best broadhead for the money.
 
I killed oneelk with G5 strikers. They perform well but are expensive.
 
I killed one elk with a 100 gr slick trick. I'd say poor performance (i.e. penetration). With that said I have a 25.5" draw length and at that time was shooting a 420 gr arrow at 235fps.
 
I've killed one deer and three elk with the stingers. They perform well and fly straight. I definitely need the cut on contact broadhead with my short draw length.

+1 on the Slick Tricks... 125g Magnums...great consistency.  I tried the G5 Fixed Blade Montecs once based on their reviews...but quickly went back to the ST's.

I really like the G5 Montecs.

They shoot just like Field points.

They can be resharpened and used over again.

Great penitration.

Good luck

i like the idea of shooting like my field points. sounds like alot of slick trick fans out there. definantly gonna take a look at them.  I like the idea of the muzzy's with being able to replaced the blades.

Have used G5 Montec for many years. Shoot regular broad heads at targets when home and 100 field tips at the range. Arrow flight is very good and does not change from my field tips to broad heads.

Montecs or Shuttle T's. Whatever is the toughest, sharpest and flys great out of your setup. Regardless of price.

MUZZY MUZZY MUZZY.  Been shooting the 125 3blade for 20 yrs. They always open and they won't bust your wallet.  I buy a least 6 new ones every year before elk season then tear em up in the spring for gobblers and even then all I would have to do is replace the blades I just like new pretty ones for wack in big bulls.

Marcl, I shot some grim reapers this past season after doing a test in the off season because of the size of the wound it made. I was sold even though I have always been skeptical of mechanicals. I hit a monster muley on the bookcliffs in Utah this past season and the broadhead did not make much of a wound as the deer did not bleed as good as it should have. When I picked up my arrow only one blade was opened. Not saying grim reapers are bad but my fears of them not opening may have been solidified and I will no longer shoot them. I am sure there are just as many success stories with them as well.

It sounds like Slick Trick and Muzzy are the top two choices for majority of the hunters on here. I think I will have to try out these Slick Trick's.
