Yes it must be the Rage Heads...Everyone unsatisfied with the heads send them to me for further field testing... PM me for my address.

Did you spin test the heads before using them. You might be experiencing a untuned head. I dont like mechanicals, so im not trying to sell them, just suggesting a posible cause.

I guess I should have put this as part of the first post. This post was to let people know my experience with this particular head. I was not looking for advice on how to try to get the Rage heads to fly better. My bow is in tune and this has been verified. I am quite disappointed to see so many people immediately blame the bow or the shooter. I am by no means perfect but under shooting range conditions these heads should group much better than they do. If you are happy with the Rage heads good for you. But seeing as how nearly half of the people that have shot them have not liked them for one reason or another people should not be so quick to start pointing fingers just because they shoot well for you.

I'll take the bow and inspect it for you, brother. Then i'll let you know how in tune it is. Why would the head shoot poorly only from your bow, but not others, if your bow was properly tuned? Because the broadhead dislikes you? Why does the broadhead shoot properly for everyone else's properly tuned bow, but not yours?

AWWWWWKWWAARRDDDDDDD..

Fingerz42.... I agree with you... But he doesn't want help, there has been a ton people on here trying to give advice (I was not one of those) and he has shut them all down... So conclusion is that he either wants people to feel bad for him or he has to much pride to suggest that he needs to take a closer look at his equipment...

Either way this is what I know, I have tried many different things with archery and my equipment (my family owns a local archery shop, I enjoy try everything out in order to have an idea on what the product is all about) some things work and some just don't.. But before I would ever walk to my treestand I am 100% confident in my equipment and my ability to make a respectful kill... If a head works for me I stick with it, I just don't switch heads and shoot it a few times and head out to the woods---make a bad shot and come back to the shop and say these things suck!!! I blame myself for the poor desicion making and learn from my mistakes and if anyone wants to give me advice on why that head (or product) didn't work for me I'm all ears!! But some people will always have excuses!!

X2 right there, best advise in this entire thread.

Here's something I read on another forum, can't take credit for it but wish I could:

Wouldn't at all be a bad thing for a number of folks, hell all of us I suppose, to stop being so reactionary and flat out mean spirited in a lot of the threads.

If you like broadhead X, dandy, peachy keen even. No reason at all to go off on a tangent about broadhead Y, or the folks who choose to shoot broadhead Y.

Tired of the "I shot a deer and I'm worried about the hit" or whatever threads? Here's a novel concept, don't click on them.

Folks can have legitimate disagreements and arguments about pretty much any topic out there, hows about we collectively take a pause for the cause before hitting the submit button?

I did, one other thing worth mentioning is the inconsistency in the sharpness of the point makes spin testing difficult to tell if it is the head or just the tip not being true.

This will be my last post and then I will let this thread die I doubt the Rage Lovers will. I do not think these heads fly consistently enough for me to use for hunting. That is my unprofessional, unconfident, untuned opinion. I wish a safe season to all that have took the time to read and comment on this post.
