Rage or G5?

Between those I would definitely choose the G5 Montecs, that being said don't overlook the NAP Hellrazors. They are a similar design but are much sharper that the original Montecs. I think G5 has changed the design to a CS (I think) to address the sharpness issue, I have not had a chance to try these yet. I would highly recommend the Hellrazors to anyone. Good Luck!

Ive got two different set ups for deer hunting. I have one short ata bow for hunting out of ground blinds and I will be using G5 montecs with that set up. My other set up is for use out of tree stands, that one will have a quiver full of rage 2 blade heads.

I have heard allot of great things about the rage broad heads. I haven't heard anything about the G5's although that dosn't mean they are bad. It's all up to if you can trust a mechanical broadhead.

If the blades were removable/replacable they were the Strikers. If they were one piece designs they were the Montecs. Also the Montec CS will hve a duller finish on the areas that aren't sharpened then the stainless/regular Montec. All three are awesome heads. G5 makes a "special" stone that makes sharpening the Montecs a snap!

Cartman, That's the problem.I can't remember if they were replacable or not.I have the Montec stone.Maybe I'm too picky.I think they should have a better edge than i'm gettin.Years ago I used the old original bear broadheads(showin my age,lol)without the bleeder blades.I could put an edge on them like i'm lookin for then for the next 20+ yrs I used replaceble blades(wasp and muzzies)used the montec the last 3 years.Most people would call em sharp enough but to me you can't get a broadhead sharp enough.
