I've seen a buddy's Muzzy trocar tip fail as well, still recovered the elk though.  An elks hide is something else compared to deer-sized game. 

I've had success with Slick Tricks and Montecs in the past.  I'm currently shooting the G5's because no matter the weather, stalking obstacles, etc. I know that there's very little chance of failure in a sharpened solid piece of steel.  Other than the archer of course....

I tried mechanical Broadheads for the first time last year and found the penetration on a 25 yard shot to be piss poor! Went back to a fixed blade and never looked back.

Please explain. I have shot through the shoulder blade of deer and broke a few ribs on elk. Montecs are strong. I suspect shot placement may be the problem.

I had original rage 3 blade fail on my first elk, hit a rib and bent the ferule and broke off most of one blade.  Worked but caused me to switch to fixed blades.  Later elk hunt I used GrizzTrick 2, hit a bull in the rib and it deflected almost straight up into the backstrap...never found that bull.  Was mid height and behind the shoulder... just my luck I suppose but I'm switching again.
