2 blade, bigger cutting diameter they can put one heck of a hole through an animal, and i have heard sometimes the rage 3 blades don't expand fully.

I shot the buck in my avatar a little far back and when I found him half of his guts were hanging out of him, im not even exagerating thats how big of a hole the rage 2 blade put through him.

i like the 2 blade. i feel like pass throughs would be a little bit harder to come by with the three, as that is alot of surface area eating kinetic energy. i also sharpen mine, i dont think they are nearly sharp enough outta the box

The rage web site actually says you get better penetration from the 3 blade. The blade angle is a lot steeper, the 2 blade is almost 90 degrees.

I probably dont know what I am talking about since I have never shot either one, I just saw someone else say that they thought the two blade would penetrate better because it has less blade surface. I was thinking about trying rage awhile back and I remembered seeing on the website that they recommend the 3 blade for game any larger than deer because it penetrates better due to the steeper blade angle. I even e-mailed the company and they told me to shoot the three blade if I had less then 60 KE.

LOL....

I called rage and they said 65 - 70 ke for the two blade and im shooting 69.5 ke...Alot of people like the muzzy fixed and heard good things from them butt it's just too close too the rut too start sighting in for a fixed blade.....I currently shoot the razortip Grim Reaper havent really heard anything bad about....maybe ill just keep shooting it..

I used a Rage 3 blade last season. Holy cow, the entry hole was huge!

HOWEVER, I don't use the Rage broadhead anymore. I can NOT stand how they won't stay in their flight position. I found I always have to tuck them back in so they "fly like a broadhead". Trust me, it gets old and is a great opportunity to cut myself.

No thanks! Of course, it could have just been that particular package I bought and I don't know what I am talking about.

I would take anything on the company site with a grain of salt. In my experience the 2 blade penetrates better and is a bit more user friendly. Both are good heads however. My personal choice would be the two blade though.
