    I want to hear some pros and cons. From people that have used them. I have always used a 3 blade muzzy with no problems on good shot but i wanna see how they do on "O SHIT" shots? Because they do happen. From what i have found they sound great. I shoot a HOYT X-TEC at 68' 30in" draw. 2 blade or 3 blade? 3 blade get more penetration from what they say.

    im looking to know as well. i know a few folks who shoot and really like them.....they have said tracking was easy as pie, and the shot placement wasnt that great.

    im using crimson talon's, and have had luck with nap thunderheads....but i may give the rage 2 blade a shot this season.

    I haven't used them personally. However, I have a hunting partner who uses them exclusivley. He uses the 2 blade model and has shot several deer with them. I can say that I've never seen a broadhead make a hole like they do, you can nearly stick your fist inside of it. Tracking is simple with these (if there is any) just follow the stream of blood right up to the deer.

    Havent gotten to shoot a deer with them yet, but as far as arrow flight they do fly a lot like field tips which is nice when practice shooting and switching to broad heads for the deer stand.

    I have never used Rage per say but I use these:

    Rocket Broadheads.

    I have never lost a deer with them and the wound is tremendous. I can't imagine them to be much different than Rages, same concept. They also fly like a feild tip.

    Rage broadhead debates over in archerytalk is just about the hottest topic ever. comical. i cant get a read on if they are good or not. for every positive post, i can find an equally negative (sometimes venemous) post.

    i want to pick up a pack of 2-blades..i think it would be a pretty cool turkey head at the least. i have no issues throwing one at a texas deer in october. i lost a great 8pt last year with a slick trick. still saddened at my shot placement..i think. never saw the arrow impact. but it was thick with blood.

    I've lost count....
    Personally, I am a fan of fixed blade broadheads. Keep it simple and less to worry about (although in all fairness most newer style expendables are very reliable).

    There are plenty of fixed blade designs that fly just like field points. Back in the "old days" many fixed blade broadheads were not vented and often could (and did) fly differently than field points...this was one of the main drivers in the expandable broadhead market. That's rarely the case anymore....most fixed blades are designed w/ aerodynamics in mind and fly exactly the same as field points.

    i always used three blade muzzys,but my friend talked me into the rages. im shootin a mathews outback pullin 70lbs when i used the rage i shot a buck a in the front shoulder at 30 yards and did not get the penetration i would have gotten from the muzzy... but they will leave a big hole for big blood trail, but i went back to the muzzys.

    If you go with them, I would recommend the 2 blade. I have never been a fan of blades that claim HUGE holes. That means they have to have more drag going through.

    If you follow what traditional archers use, you will see a lot of them using long narrow fixed two blade heads. They typically have less kinetic energy than compound shooters and they have figured out which heads make pass through shots with less power. Personally, I feel that pass through shots are much more important than a huge entry hole with no exit.

    Op, My family and I hunt compound and crossbow with rage, and they are ridiculous! The entry/exit wounds created are bad ass! We never have to travel far, and from last years experience...my doe(yeah I know...but the in-laws ranch is over populated) bled out within 20-30 feet! It was awesome!

    I was debating last year on getting them but I stuck with the good ol' muzzys and after seeing them used Im glad I did. Two of my regular hunting partners use rage broadheads and they each shot a deer with them last season. One of the deer was not recovered for 3 days and by then he was spoiled, the arrow hit right behind the shoulder but never exited, it was a good shot and he was shooting a nice Mathews Outback. The second deer was found after following the trail for an hour, he was hit a little far back clipping one lung, had pass through, the blood trail was no better than my muzzys give. Ive heard people who love em and people who hate em, they are basically just another broad head that you still need a good solid shot with.
