They work great and I will continue to use them . Their customer service is to be commended . Most of my Rage 2 kills have bben double lung shots and the farthest was 35 yards .
If someone is happy with their Muzzys , etc fine . If it works , don't fix it .

Your choice of BH wouldn't look good/bad ass enough If you said that on here or any hunting forum though. Yes I've had allot of deer and bear go no farther then 50 yards and fall over but I've also had my share of deer and bear go 100 yards and fall over too with the exact shot placement and same broadhead make. It's not just about shot placement and make of broad head, every animal Is wired differently too.
While I do agree with u and jeff about the results on these threads...

Although, as magic as that 40yd or less number sounds, I truly had that experience 4 out of the 5 times I've hit a deer with them.

The one deer that ran was a poor shot which was caused by a limb deflection... I should have never taken the shot in thick cover, but the deer still died although the hit was far back...

One doe went a ranged 9 yards from the hit and it was a double lung shoulder shot...

No bs or exageration. Maybe luck??? It did happen tho.

I'm shootin reapers now tho bc they just seem more durable and less likely to fail.

It must be some sort of a reflex action. We all possess the necessary skill to be a proficient ******* when the need arises, but some folks seem to live for the opportunity to hone their ******* skills.

It just seems that in some, the mere mention of "Rage Broadhead", along with a few other slect topics, triggers an involuntary manifestation of this trait.

A deer that is one lung can run a heck of lot further then 150 yards and half the time they'll live off of one lung... On the quartering shot you must have messed some other things up.. Thats a bonus of the rage BH, it does some damage..

But, obviously, shoot what you have confidence in.
I had the same issue last year with the 3blade. Liked the performance but this little problem with them being open in the quiver has me changing to the 2Blade this year.

Did you make that up as you went???? A deer hit in one lung will travel much further, but to expect a deer hit in one lung to survive 50% of the time is crazy. You might not recover it, but a deer with a single hemoraging lung is a dead deer.

The exit hole is more impressive then the entry hole in my opinion.
Well, I don't take pictures of holes but 10 out 11 complete passthroughs between me and 2 friends on mature Kansas and Iowa bucks is proof enough for me.

By the way, I'm only shooting 260 fps and they're both shooting about the same.

I would have to say that if you think that every deer that is single-lunged dies you are completely crazy.. My good friend owns a huge butching shop that service all over the world and during deer season they also do deer processing, they bring close to 2,000 deer a season in.. I have helped him many times to catch up and have seen with my own eyes deer that have been shot (single-lunged) and healed up and then shot weeks later and or even years later.. The lung shrinks up and the deer does in fact survive... I have personally harvest deer that have been previously shot through one-lung and they looked normal as could be... I also know others that have made that type of shot and 100% positive that they single-lunged the deer and caught it on trail-cams weeks later.. I quess it is unfair to give an actually percentage but I do believe that if in the deer is ONLY hit through ONE lung then they do have a decent chance of survival.. Now if you catch anything else, the liver/maybe some guts/or whatever depending on the angle of the shot then the deer will probably be died within 500 or so yards..
