How sharp are your blades? I shoot rage 3 blade, similar draw length/weight, have shot 2 deer, both double lung shots, both punched through.

I used to be an exspandable man years ago. But always would wonder why I wouldn't get pass throughs. didn't know any better. Then went to four blade muzzy and that didn't happen any more.

That being said there are only 2 expandables on the market I would shot they are the NAP Shockwaves and Grim Reaper Razortip. Both have performed very well for me.

I seen all the hype about the rage heads and though if you don't have all kinds of KE you will not get a complete pass through. I would say at least a 400 gr arrow total weight moving at well over 300fps is the only way those heads will get complete pass throughs in most cases.

Now all I shot are Slick Trick Mag. heads great entrance wound and even better exit wound, I couldn't beleive the size exit wounds I am getting with that small head in comparision to a larger dia. head.

Tune your bow right shot a quality fixed blade head and your life will be alot easier that shooting any mechanical. Fixed heads penatrate better than expandables and thats a known fact.

Hey Rick C.

This guy is probably not the best guy to listen to because....


HE HAS NEVER SHOT THE HEAD!!!!!!

So how would he have any knowledge, understanding, or credibility on the subject.

you and I both know Rage broadheads are poor at penetration qualities - that's why there is a recommendation of XX KE to shoot them

simple physics will tell you a mechanical loses energy deplying its blades, common sense will tell you two thick blades on the same plane will not bend/break like long skinny thinner blades projected out of a ferrule ...

I mean IF you helped design the Rage like you've said before, you know these things and the Rage is a gimmick that made ya'll a lot of money.

Does it work? Well sure, and Like I've said, the old Puckett's Bloodtrailer heads killed deer too - they were aweful in so many ways though .... so too are the Rage




and one other thought ..... if the Rage is so great in design and penetration, why do so many hunting videos like Real Tree and Primos etc etc show just terrible penetration hits?
