Yes, G5 Monotec, never used them again. A sharp head will slice and dice.

the worst part about my hunt last sunday was after i came to the conclusion that i didnt kill the deer, i couldnt find my way out of the woods as it was now dark and i was pretty deep in the woods. i knew i had to walk north but in the dark it was hard to stay on track. it took me 15 minutes to find my spot in the daylight... took over an hour to find my way out! i bought a gps today and took it out to the field. i wont be leaving home without this little gizmo thats for sure
Actually there as thick or thicker than a lot of fixed heads.

Another uneductaed comment.

Fixed heads deflect at times too.

And that is simply your opinion.

And my opinion I will take a Rage to the woods with me everyday and twice on Sunday!

Uneducated???????????? Oh ok. Get a life.

Please bursh up on you reading skills and reread my post. I can only assume you have been at this game a few years and know everything about archery. Typical.

Good answer Kent.... it seems that most of the ones that know it all have been alive less than I've been hunting... One reason I stay away from most of the hunt forums, they know it all!

With all due respect, Burnie has forgotten more about archery than most people learn in a lifetime. Not only has he been hunting for longer than I have been on this earth, he is also a bowyer. I own 5 of his designs. I bought him out when he was closed down shop. Best equipment I own.

And he's not a bad guy to have a beer with either ... I'm going to hunt with him next week a his place in West Texas.. Right he's a heck of a bowyer.. I always enjoy shooting his bows, I don't even like to bring the bows I make around him.

Uneducated was a little strong. My apologies to you but...

Simple question, can fixed blades deflect also?

I have been bowhunting gor 30 years so yes, I do have a little knowledge.

GMMAT - I have said my affiliation numerous times on here so I don't think it's worth repeating. But one thing for sure, I have ZERO to gain with my support of Rage BH's.
