Default Rage 3 Blade Expandables

I know this has been discussed before but I figured I would get some fresh opinions on them. I have never shot expandables before but was at BPS tonight and decided to pick up a pack to try this year. For those of you that haveused them before what is your opinion of them? Also is the practice head very accurate compared to the actual heads?

Also forgot to ask if I made the right decision in going with the 3 blade over the 2 blade?

Alright, maybe I will be returning them to the store today. Looks like no one uses these.

yeah, i use 2 blade one less blade to worrie about so i couldent tell you about the 3 blade...the only thing i don't like about them are the have a tendasea to open by them selfs, just by hitting a little tree or anything...but all i do is put rubber band for teethbraces on them and i can wack them against anything andproblim solved

I have test both and for the most part I prefer the 2 blade version. It penetrates better and is more durable.
Here is a link to my review of the 2 blade. http://www.broadheadtests.com/NEWHEADS.html

Just scroll down the page.

2 blade is the way to go brotha. As for the practice tip that baby was flying true for me this weekend
out at my moms.

Think I will give the 3 blade a shot. Never shot them before so they are worth a try. Will probably pick up the 2 blade next time I am at the store to compare!

I bought a pack of the 2 & 3 blade Rage and will be using the 2 blade. The 2 blade is a better head IMO.

Going to test both this weekend but sounds like it already a decided factor that the 2 blade wins hands down!

One thing with the 3 blade is if you don't open them properly the blades will jam together, not a problem with the 2 blade.
