Default Rage 2 blade broadheads good for hog hunting?

I am worried of the masive cutting diameter of these heads. (2") Is this too much, or is there never such thing as too much cutting diameter? Won't the blades slow down realy fast in the hog and possibly not reach the vitals? Thanks for the help yall.

A lot of the pay to hunt hog places in Tx don't allow expandables for whatever reasons. i quit looking once I killed game w/ Slick tricks, not what you are looking for, I know, but as an old carpenterI recall a saying, "If it ain't broke don't fix it". These heads get awesome reviews by most who try them.

what are your thought on these?

I emailed the creater and he said no tuning required cause the razor wire dosent affect the air. I want to test the accuracy but don't know how to sharpen them. Would you buy them?

Well, since you took the time to post the link,I woudn't shoot them if they were free, let alone $22.50 APIECE!! My advice is to go w/ a proven winner regardless of which one you choose.

Just ordered a 3 pack of 100 grain slick tricks. From what I have been hearing they seem pretty good. Thanks for the help

Just bought a 6 pack of 2 bladed rages!!! Where I am hunting they allow mechanicals. So far the broad heads look put together well and dangerously sharp!

2 blade Rage are the ONLY broadheads I've ever tried that were shaving sharp right outta the pack. They are SHARP!!! I've always used the spitfires but will try my new rages this season. I'm up for new products any old time. I work for one reason and one reason only. To make money TO SPEND!!! I ain't taking noth'n with me when I die.LOL
