I have never seen a shot from a rage not have great penatration and do massive damage. If you have good shot placement they always go down rather quickly and leave beautiful blood trails but people seem to not like them

When I was trying to decide on a mechanical I made my final decision based on rage's own commercial. This was when they first came out but the commercial showed several deer hit where I would expect a complete pass through yet the deer ran off with the arrow hanging out on the entry side. I do not hate them but I have never used one based on those commercials

The one and only shot that I took at a deer with a rage broadhead, was at a buck at about a 60 degree angle going away at about 35 yards. All I know is the broadhead skated off his ribs and stuck in the ground. Not a fan.

its like anything if a few folks have a bad experience, they post it every where,m and that then gets the band wagon playing
and will soon make a small percentage of unhappy folks seem like a HUGE number of them
bad experiences get passed about a LOT more than good one's

there are so many people today and SO many products out there
buy and just use what ever YOU like, and don't worry about what others say or think
NOT sure when it happened, but it sure seems folks today get so worked up over words on a screen about opinions!!

the facts are, ANY broad head put in the vitals will kill, stick ANY one ion a non vital area, and odds are you will have a deer that may NOT be found or recovered
NOTHING to do with the brand of the head, but shot placement
YET I am sure many will blame the head, the bow, the release or what ever product saying if they USED "X": instead, things would have been different
so few today take credit for there own mistakes, , and rather blame something else for them ! LOL

The bolded paragraph is right on the money.
