    Anyone tried the Rage broadheads yet? Ive heard they are rank but a buddy shot a small deer with one Saturday and we blood trailed it for 2.5 hours then ran out of blood.

    couple of folks i know use them, and they like them pretty good. blood trails are pretty good from what i have been told. all depends on shot placement. shoot too far back and have a gut shot......you'll likely trail a deer for that long and then the trail just quits....been there done that.

    Why do all these people like Muzzy's...cuz they work. All the mechanical broad heads have one big flaw....they are mechanical. Get some fixed blade or cut on contact type broad heads. They will never fail you. I don't want to have to depend on something opening up or not opening. Goes back to the old saying...KISS...Keep it simple stupid. Last thing you want in the deer woods is something to worry about. To much going on with adrenaline and pressure of making the shot.

    I started shooting Slick Tricks and Grizz Tricks last year. I still shoot Simmons land sharks and Magnus Stingers also. The slick and griz tricks leave a massive hole and serious hemorroging. I shot 6 deer with my bow last year and none went futher than 40yds. Seemed like as soon as I couldn't see them they piled up. They fly very very good and are bad news to deer. Thing I like about simmons and magnus are the fact I can resharpen them 20 times as long as the aren't bent. I got one magnus head that has taken 11 deer. Got a simmons I took 7 deer and 2 coyotes with. 165gr of death.

    Just my .02.

    CANT BEAT THEM MUZZYS:)
    Yeah but the 2 blade rage are not bad, that is if you are shooting fast enough to push them through a nice sized buck. You lose alot of KE with a 2.25" cut. The 3 blade on the other hand are not so good. The third blade often gets caught and doesn't open. My buddy has tried both, and he is now back with a fixed blade. I personally shoot muzzy 100 grain. Never let me down. T

    I work as an archery tech in a small store, had lots of guys come in complaining they were not getting pass-throughs with Rage's. Same story back home where I do alot of hunting, lots of guys not happy with Rage's.

    I'm shooting the Rocky Mt. Titanium, and some old G5 B-52's. I ruined two ACC's shooting the same spot at 50 yards getting ready for elk season...good enough for me.

    Yea thats what happened to my friend Saturday, no pass through. With that came a crappy blood trail and eventually nothing, ended up looking for 2 and half hours and found nothing. Went back Monday to hunt again and found the deer about a mile from where he shot it with half a the arrow in its front shoulder.

    One broadhead I am using now on top of muzzy's is the new reign. It is pretty awesome. passed clean through a nice sized boar. if you have never heard of them google them. I was real skeptical at first, but I might shoot a deer with them after my great performance on a hog. You don't lose much kinetic energy because the blade pivots around the bone, unless of course you hit is square up then it litterally blows right through it.

    I myself shoot rages, but alas, I have not had the pleasure to give any feedback......yet.:D From what I have heard, read and seen, they sure make it out that they are a top notch broadhead. But, if I don't like em, I will switch back to muzzy's. check out the uncensored commercial at

    i will never shoot anything but fixed blades. everyone that i know that has tried mechanicals has had alot of problems. they have all gone back to shooting fixed blades. i have always shot muzzys. i switched to steel force phat heads this year.
    they are the toughest blade out. i switched b/c my wife was shooting muzzys also
    at 40 lbs and never had pass throughs. she started shooting the phat heads and they were blowing through. they are a cut on contact blade, where as a muzzy is
    a hole punch style. i always had pass throughs with muzzys, unless i was shooting a quartering shot. i figured if i shot steel force at 70 lbs., then nothing would stop it.

    I was a "only fixed blade" hunter. I got 3 last year with the rage 3 blade. They are pretty good. All the blood trails were huge. It left a hole the size of a tennis ball each time!

    I spend a lot of time at the local archery shop, and they tested out some broadheads, and the steel force phatheads actually stuck into a steel plate while most others were shattered.

    Those phat heads look pretty lethal and I imagine pass through isn't a problem. I have never seen or tried a cut on contact broadhead so maybe Ill give them a try next year.
