Ive shot the G5 Stikers for three years. They are nasty, nasty little heads.

I've heard way to many people complain about the Rage heads, for many different reasons and i certainly do not agree with the way they are marketed.

Go with G5 in my opinion. For mechanicals...... in times past i'd say none, but i'm actually going to try a Grim Reaper this fall.

good luck. both will kill, but you'll never see a Rage across my riser...... (i guess i'm lying. I found one this spring shed hunting. Some clown was shooting them outta his xbow at deer....... You may see a video of me shooting it with about five other heads to compare flight......if i ever get my bow set back up)

Both will do the job as far as killing a deer with a well placed shot. No doubt the Rage leaves massive wound channels, I have used them. However what the G5 (Montec) brings to the table is the ability to be resharpened and used multiple times. That is not important to some people but I like it.

I agree with you here. I started out last year with the Rage 2-Blades and ended up finishing with the Montecs. I've been very impressed. They are extremely easy to re-sharpen and do the job very well. The rages are a little too much for me in terms of the damage they cause. Both do the job very well. Just a matter of preference.

I shoot Rage 3-blades and my dad shoots Montacs. We both really like what we shoot. It's just personal preference. I really appreciate the simplicity of the Montacs and would probably shoot them if I didn't shoot the Rage's.

I've tried both and don't like that the rage broadheads open up sometimes walking to the stand or if you bump um. I tried taken off the stock o rings and adding thicker ones and it helped a little but I just like the no hassle of a fixed blade.

i like the rages, tehy are a pretty good head. Had an issue with penetration with the montec's.
I think if i was in the market for new heads, i would be shooting the Slicktrick Grizztricks
amazing head! I also like the original Nap heads
