I really liked the regular rages but I have yet to be able to reuse a head. The dang this is trashed after going thru a deer. The Xecutioners work great on turkeys but I haven't slung one through a deer yet and I really don't like the idea of the o-ring system. I've used the 3 blade muzzy before but the first shot I ever had at a deer was at 40 yrds and I hit the shoulder blade. The damn muzzy bounced right off and I haven't used them since. Sure it wasn't the best shot but I would have thought it should have gotten a little penetration. Ended up taking my first deer with a bow the next day with the mx3 muzzy at 20 yrds right behind the shoulder and still only got about 8" of arrow in him. Granted this was an old Reflex Highlander bow at 63 lbs.
The thunderhead razors are different than regular thunderheads. The blades are held on by little screws and the Muzzy trocars are also held in by screws and they are one piece solid steel rather than the (I believe) aluminum most muzzys are made of with the screw on tips. Both heads fly great, penetrate really well , and do plenty of damage.

The one downside is the offset blades destroy targets and are very hard to pull out.
