For my compound bow and xbow. Hog made it less than 20 yards last weekend with a pass through shoot . Real easy to follow that blood trail.

They hold up quite well, have one that has been through 4 hogs. Easy to resharpen and from my compound and crossbow they fly like the same weight field tip

Great heads. Fly great. Easy to sharpen. Blood trails can be tough due to small cutting diameters.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

Been using them for years and zero complaints.

They are great for hogs. Probably the toughest head made. I don't like them for deer though. Small cutting diameter and only three blades make for one of he weakest blood trails.

I've been hunting with the G5 Montec for a good bit, and have no complaints, they leave a great blood trail when needed and fly true. I've never had a deflection, and busting through bone is not a issue.

My experience as well. Shot my biggest deer to date last year in KS....18 yards, double lung, with entry/exit breaking ribs. Clean pass thru. If I hadn't watched the deer run off, jump a fence, and climb hill I would have never found him. Deer didn't bleed for 300-400 yards until his started bleeding from the mouth.

For a fixed blade I think slick trick is hard to beat.

I have a set of Montec's and they never flew as well as the slick tricks and had a greater POI shift from field points.

could the lack of blood trail be equally due to shot placement and not 100% the broad head? I understand the big hole argument when it comes to broad heads....But a big hole does not always mean big blood. Just something to think about. Thanks for your input on the broad heads.

Shot placement is everything. A field point through the heart kills as good as anything. Unfortunately not every animal sits perfectly still while your arrow is on its way. The larger the hole he greater the chance of cutting something vital if things don't go perfect.

Ive shot Montecís. Typically blood trails are not easy to follow but Ive had a few that were nice.
They kill just as well and any other but I prefer big blood trails. I shoot the G5 Havicís and Rage Hypodermics
