I use the 2 blade version. My theory is that the whole reason for using a mechanical is to lessen the impact of the blade on arrow flight. A 2 blade has less metal sticking outside the diameter of the arrow shaft, so I figure it will have less impact on flight. I don't know if this is scientifically valid, but it makes sense to me.

Go with the two blade. In some cases people have had penetration issues with Rage heads. Shoot the two blade, make sure your blades are seated properly behind the oring, and don't hit the shoulder bone. You should do well if you stick to those two rules.

I would go with the 2 blade. I have also heard that the two blade is not as reliable. And if you are worried about the blades popping out take some rubber bands for braces and put on the front does not affect the flight or opening but it is not necessary. Also do not let people try to fool you in to thinking they will not blow thru a shoulder blade they will do it. Do not recommend it but I shot a doe thru the shoulder last year (I am human it was not on purpose) and it blew thru it and was sticking out the other side of the deer. But you will have to replace the blades but it is not that hard. Enjoy them and be prepared for a heckuva blood trail. (provided you dont shoot it in the butt )
