I don't like mechanical BH's so I'll stay out of this one.

I've always wanted to try to the G5's but it's hard to steer away from my rages. Maybe this year...

I am right there with you on this. I think I will stick with the Rages, mainly b/c I have a bunch.

My buddy uses the G5's and they are just deadly. If I did not have the rages I would probably go with them G5's.

I've shot fixed blade and the Rage 2 blades and have settled on the G5 Tekan. Not saying anything is wrong with any of the others, just prefer the flight and the wound of the Tekans.

I have use the swhacker broadheads and they are awesome. Hands down the best broadhead that I have ever shot. I saw the the 30 minute show on tv showing the broadhead comparison test and the swhacker broadhead held up the best. Out performed rage, g5 and others.
