Default Rage 2 Vs 3.

Just wondering which one you guys prefer, the Rage 2 blade or the 3 blade. Which one do you think flies better?


Be Safe All,

KC

Neither...........they both stink. Some idiot on TV said "its the best bad shot broadhead out there" Great!.......tell people to shoot deer in the guts and they die slowly and painful....but they die. Don't hit any type of bone with the rage either. You'll get a deflection off a rib. Or you'll bent the tip blade 90 degrees............Survey says "two thumbs down"

A friend and I have both had great success with the rage 2 blades. Don't worry, neither of us have gotten a deflection off of a rib or bent blades, even on the one doe my buddy shot through the shoulder blade. Leave's gaping holes and the deer dont run very far. If it weren't for these broadheads, my buddy would have lost his first ever bow buck due to a bad shot since he had a bad case of buck fever. With the 2 blades, he was just able to clip the femoral artery which resulted in a dead deer rather than a wounded one. I personally tust them 100%, even after what some others have said because every deer shot with them has dropped within 50 yards with very good blood trails.

I will be shooting the 2 blade this year for the first time. I am switching for the Muzzy 3 blade.

I can't speak to the 3 blade but I could shoot 5 field tipped arrows and 1 rage tipped arrow and looking at the pattern you wouldn't know which is which...except the rage would be much deeper!

X2! I can speak for both blades. They fly extremely well...

I shot the 3's last year and they were devastating. Shooting the 2 blades this year cuz i have more KE.

Only problem for me is every head had at least one bent blade. But... 3 dead deer is 3 dead deer... Worth a package of blades to me

I have killed deer with the 3 blade, but the 2 blade is more devastating.
