I like the NAP Spitfire 100's & 125's, but here most will tell you the Rage...

no experience either but my best friend shoots the rage and he says they are amazing. he says they fly justlike the field tips. i shoot crimson talons and they fly very well. best fixed blade ive ever shot.

rage broadheads! they have a HUGE enty hole and fly straight as well. they also include a practice head so you dont have to dull up your hunting tips. the only con that i can think of is that the "O" ring is kind of hard to put on. once its on though you wont have to touch it.

Just about every one in my circle of bow hunting friendsis using the 2 blade Rage and/or the Montec. I shot two mule deer last fall with the Rage. I didn't think any broadhead could cause an animal to lose that much blood in such a short period of time. Plan to try the Slick Trick this fall - have heard some great reviews of this head as well.

Yep, of those two choices, most on here will steer you towards the Rage. It appears to be an awesome mechanical. The popular opinion of the masses doesn't have much effect on me though. I shoot the Grim Reapers, and they're awesome too.

These are entrance and exit holes made by a rage. I saw these on thejump.net its on a fallow deer. I personally shoot montecs and spent several seasons with spitfires.
The entrance


The exit





Pretty impressive holes.

A lot depends on your setup, total KE and which specific head you want to use in each line up. Both rage and Grim reapers are good solid designs and each have strong and weak points. follow my link I have reviews of both rage heads on this page. The grim reaper reviews are on the subscribers side, but this should at least help you out. http://www.broadheadtests.com/NEWHEADS.html
