Default Rage Tricks?

I have always been a fixed blade guy but have decided to give the mechanicals a shot. The rage 2 blade is what I got and the practice blade flies awesome! My question is does anyone have any tips or tricks for the real heads to keep them from deploying before the shot or in flight? Also, what are your experiences with this head especially those of you who have used fixed blades for a long time? Thanks

They shouldn't open before the shot or in flight. I would suspect the O-ring can be rotated to a new position. I've never used them but I think the blades have a sort of hook that goes behind the O-ring. If the blade is deployed it could damage the O-ring. So slightly rotating it and pulling it down below the groove prior to positioning the blades should hold the blades in place until impact.

I always used muzzy too but wantto try something new. The last pack of muzzies I got would not shoot well at all.

i like rage. I think there a pretty good broadhead. the only thing that turned me off to them was the price and replacing orings. they sure do the trick on a deer. Im just worried about what will happen if i would happen to hit shoulder. I haven't before with them but ya never know.

You could always try the new chisel tip. If I like these then I will definitely get the chisel tips next time.

more worried about the cutting diameter, i feel like the will probably bend, maybe break and stop the arrow from penetrating.

I hope not but I will give my thoughts on these next week. I have a trip to my property and god willing I will be able to test these broadheads out.

Try the Slick Tricks or Grizz Tricks. The fly better than every fixed blade I've ever shot. And you don't have to worry about moving parts failing on you.
