A cut on contact would have been your best best...no doubt in my mind. At 40 lbs and a light arrow...yeah.

Steel force are great too. Shooting at such slow speeds he should not have much issue with the broadheads flying poorly

COC fly great and if they hit em where they are supposed to it doesn't matter how they bleed. Lot's of nice COC heads out there. If he is shooting 40 lbs, 100 grain is fine. You are better off with the 100's, better front of center, better penetration.

Don't shoot a slick trick, the 4 blades and the blade angle is not ideal for light weight. Believe what you will, but COC at 100 grain is what you want. Magnus makes great heads and are lifetime warranty. perfect for a kid starting off. there are many single blade or COC heads available.

Buy him some Black Hornets and he'll be jacked. Those heads are brutal!!

Stingers are great too, they do the same thing, put meat on the ground.

two things it's stay away from, expandable and fixed with big blade angles.

If you can find TruFire T1's, they fly outstanding and are a 3 blade fixed COC but no blade angle. G5 strikers are the same, big steel tip w a even tip to blade transition so basically a COC. Steel force makes nice COC heads too.

Good luck with your search.

I've never shot a cut on contact 2 blade. Curious on how they fly and blood trail? Was gonna buy him some to throw in his easter basket. He just passed hunter safety and his super geeked to bow hunt. Gonna take him to do the Kenosha bowman turkey shoot this weekend.

Cut on contact 2 blade will get the best penetration

There's so many good options out there for low poundage bows that I would let him pick them out provided the head falls within the guidelines you give him. I would say 75-85 grains with 3 blades of about 1" diameter (for more pentration than 4 blades) and from a quality maker. If it were me I would go 85gr 3 blade Muzzys but like I said there's so many great heads if he thinks Slick Tricks look cool let him get them. That way he can feel like he's making some of the decisions.

He's pulling 42lbs now. Hoping to continue to going up during the summer then backing him off before the season begins.

What pound draw weight is he pulling? When my son first started bowhunting, he was shooting 40 pounds and was using 100 grain SlickTricks. As long as he was shooting at 20 yards or less, he shot through them!
