I shoot them and haven't had any problems with them, they make quite a hole as advertised. I just wished they would come in atleast a 4-Pack instead of only 3 for the price....$40.00

Why couldnt it have!?!?!?

The difference between .0001 of an inch could be the difference between a cut arterie/lung/heart or what ever, so why couldnt this head with its measley 1" larger cut helped this guy recover his deer????

2" of damage to the internals is DOUBLE 1" if we are comparing apples to apples....

Rages work imo if you have the right arrow setup for them. Id stick with a heavy arrow for the 2 blades, like 450+

I shot a deer with a fixed blade many years back. It was quartering away sharply and i hit it back a little farther than i wanted. The arrow had only penetrated about 8 inches. The doe ran off and when i recovered her, i had found that the running she did drew the arrow into her body cavity the rest of the way until almost none of the arrow was showing, tearing up everything inside.

Long story short, running with the arrow still inside will do alot of damage as will the arrow hitting trees along the way.

Shot ywo nice bucks last year with Rage broadheads. Both quartering away both pass thrus. Both had a great blood trail with very large wound channels in and out. I shoot 68 lbs 30" draw so there is energy to spare.
Here are pictures of both entry wounds with the skin off.

Are YOU serious? 1" is a HUGE difference when it comes down to the damage being done and what you hit or might miss.

I've also tested them out on 5 P&Y bucks from Iowa and Kansas and got passthroughs on every one at shooting 260fps.

Not much of a mathematition, BUT wouldn't a 3 bladed broadhead with 1" blades cut more tissue than a 2 bladed broadhead that measures 2" when open....suntin to tink about!!

Far too many people like to blame their failures on their equipment. Native Americans used to kill Deer with a sharpened rock tied to a stick. Most any well made broadhead will do the trick if it is driven with enough energy and the shot placement is good. For every person who loves the Rage you'll find one who swears they're junk. Push them with enough energy and put them where they belong and you'll kill Deer with the Rage broadhead, which is no different than most any other Broadhead you can name.

I bought Rage 2-blades once. The blades would deploy in the quiver or if you bumped your arrow in the stand. I didn't want to worry about my broadhead, too many other things to focus on. I sold them and got the XC-3's. I like them MUCH more!

There is a huge difference between cutting tissue and cutting diameter.

Cutting diameter is the size of damage.

Cutting tissue is the damage done within the size of the cutting diameter.


By the way, there isn't any 3 blade, 1" blades. That would be a 3" diameter head. I think you were trying to say a 3 blade 1" diameter head and no they wouldn't cut as much tissue. It would cut 1 1/2" of tissue within a 1" diameter.

This is a very old, old ,old topic.
Bottom line-Rage has good entry hole size but your chances of getting a pass through are 1 out of 10.
Go with a cheaper broad head that will pass through something like muzzy or slick trick will do the same and even a better job with killing deer.
Even thought they are only about 1 1/8 inch in diameter you will almost always get a pass through.
Hope that helps.
