I am not trying to tell people what to shoot, I am just saying if you see the MYTH BUSTINGvideo by Grim Reaper you will see they outperform every other broadhead on the market.
Dude seriously we get it, Grip reaper, video, watch it........wow.

I've been using 125gr Muzzy three bladers for 16 or 17 years approx. I have used others in between, but always go back for superior pennetration, accuracy in flight and convenience the of shooting practice blades. I do however keep a 125gr expanable of similar construction-type to the Muzzy in my quiver in case I get a longer shot and I need unfailing feild point like accuracy.

I've shot two elk with expandable broadheads from 42 and 47 yards, and both were total pass thru's.

When they fail me....I'll switch....but even then it won't be switching back to a fixed head. I have overkill KE....so I might as well take advantage of that by getting the maximum cutting surface into that deer (as Matt/PA eluded to).
Question for you GMMAT.If i'm not mistaken your rage 2 blade's have a 2" cutting diameter. You said in your post that if they were to fail you that you would switch, but not to a fixed blade or cut on contact. You said you have all this KE and you want to use it to your best advantage. Makes alot of sense to use up that KE you havebut whats the rap on the fixed blade or cut on contactwith you then? The BH i shoot is a big3 blade cut on contactwith 1 1/4 cutting diameter, I know its not 2" like the rage but its not to small either. Its the biggest cutting diameter that i've found with the style of head i wanted. Why not trysome sort ofcut on contact3 blade BHwith a big cutting diameter? You've got plenty of KE for it!My bloodtrails are excellent as well, they leave a nice hole too.Just curious on what you have to say. I'm not promoting nothing here, just asking why. Thank you.

Sorry GMATT (Jeff) I was out hunting...

As far as spine.. it should not have affected anything between the 2 grain sizes for my setup. Like I said it was perfect at 20 yards.. not so perfect at 30. I couldv'e used the Rage and probably been fine. But I am a perfectionist... and probably is not definatly.. so I went back to the old fixed head.

The Rage just didn't shoot well at long distances with my set up. But like I said.. I will try it again. I was just commenting on my issues with the Rage.

I have to laugh, I really do.

I've shot Muzzys as long if not longer than most of you on here, perhaps not all but I bet it's close to all. I've been bowhunting for 26 seasons now and have had a Muzzy in my quiver for probably 20 of them. Great heads and will always be part of my bowhunting arsenal. That being said, the last 6 bucks I've taken have been with Snypers, Rage's twin and they are simply incredible. The reason I tried the Snypers after being very antimechanical was because of 5Shots review on them. He ranked them as high as any Muzzy he tested. That speaks volumes!

For the one that said Rage sucks, I won't even take the time to quote him, stay off the internet, you don't have a clue!

I've never not had a exit hole and the holes in and out are more devistating than any Muzzy hole I've ever seen. Any failures Rage have had was because of pilot error, someone too ignorant to use them in the first place, not making sure they were seated properly or what not. Many that shoot Muzzy probably have them flying all over the place, they take patience to have them fly. I can drive tacks with them and that's why I love them however, I can drive tacks with other broadheads too because it's the bow, bow/arrow combo and tuning broadheads, not the head itself that creates the accuracy.

Muzzy AND Snypers are in my arsenal now. If Snypers go bye bye then it'll be Muzzy AND Rage. They are both flawless when used properly.

Thanks, Duke. Like I said....I don't know much about the technical aspect of archery....but I do know that changing head weight will change your spine.

Makes alot of sense to use up that KE you havebut whats the rap on the fixed blade or cut on contactwith you then?
I killed the first 7 deer I ever killed with a muzzy 125gr 3-blade. I was never impressed with the blood trails....and it left me nervous even before shooting one. SO....I switched. I don't see me switching back to a muzzy.

I don't shoot muzzy's either but were they bullet points or cut on contacts?

Bullet (though I've never heard it called that term). They weren't a COC head.
