Have any of girls or guys tried the rage mechanical?
How would you rate them, the pros and cons.

Tn Deer Members reviews in my opinion would be better than the marketing of the TV pro staffers.

Thanks.

I haven't used them personally but a couple of my buddys use them and love them. They leave an awsome entry and exit wounds on the animals I've seen shot with them. I just can't retire my old Muzzys just yet, they have done a good job for me over the years.

I have tried them .They are good heads for a mechanical head , but I still prefer a low profile fixed blade heads such as the Slick Trick or G5 Striker.
Fixed blade heads are stronger when contacting bone .
Note: I don't want to start an argument on fixed blade vs. Mechanical heads , because there are merits of using both .

I'll let you know this fall. I've been faithful to Muzzy for over 20 years. But after seeing results of some of my close friends encounters with the Rage heads; I have decided to try them this year.

Absolutely devastating! I have used many broadheads and these are by far the most devastating! I have never seen that makes such a large entrance and exit wound. They blast right thru bone and still penetrate 3 inches into the ground. The only other broadhead I would consider using would be the slick trick.the rage 2 blade is what I use and Love! I would not use the rage 3 blade. They do not perform near as well as the 2 blades.

Awesome head. They work GREAT!

I used them, and several other mechs and fixed over several years and wrote reports for various sites. I settled on the Magnus Stinger because I kill multiple deer each year and they have a lifetime guarantee. As far as product support, they are simply THE BEST!. THey are the sharpest heads I have ever used. THe fact that they cut on impact helps with the big bodied, bruiser bucks (and does) we hunt up North.

I also shoot Stingers. $24 for a 3 pack, lifetime warranty. You can go outside and intentionally smash them with a hammer. Call them and tell them what you did and they will send you a replacement. That's service. I also like the fact that I can practice with them on my hunting arrows, hit it with a sharpener, and then hunt with it without having to remove it from the arrow.

Any good ,sharp and strong broadhead placed in the vitals should produce a decent bloodtrail leading to recovered game .
Shot placement is everything . There are no magic broadheads on the market that will make up for poor shot placement .
The Rage broadheads are good broadheads , but they aren't going to make up for a poor shot or a poorly tuned bow.

What I love about the rage 2 blade is that it still does the job quickly even on a marginal shot because of the large entrance and exit wound it creates!The rage blades don't last as long as most of the fixed heads, but I DON'T CARE BECAUSE I WILL NEVER USE THE SAME HEAD TWICE. In my opinion, once a head has been used it has done it's job and I won't use it again.Many people use the same head for 3,4,5 kills and that is their right but I just don't care to do that.

W. Seay,
Right ON! I never use the same head twice. THis is just one of the reasons I like the Stinger so well. I use it on a deer, send it back, and they send me new ones while I imagine they re-cycle (melt down or whatever) my old one. NO CHARGE!

Radar...I agree. THere are NO SHORTCUTS in bowhunting. My biggest pet peeve in bowhunting is guys try to take short cuts to help them kill their deer. In bowhunting, success or failure is often measured in inches.

And being measured by an inch or so translates to this:
it is true that big broadheads are no substitute for poor preparation, they can be a VERY good aid for proper preparation especially when the placement of the shot is less than perfect.

A bowhunter needs to shoot the biggest, most accurate, and sharpest head they can. As an example, a 6 inch razor sharp hole will produce SEVERE and FATAL damage to a deer hit marginally while a 1/2 inch, razor sharp hole, even through BOTH lungs, will still kill the deer.

Now reverse the two holes. A 6 inch hole through the boiler room is a dead deer QUICK! But that 1/2 inch hole in the guts will take MUCH longer than the 6 inch gut shot!

6" hole ? \:\) I get your point on making a wider cutting path .
The one negative with having wider cut is the reduced penetration because of increased blade angle and width of the blades tends to decrease penetration due to the increase in friction .
The blades are cutting a wider path , yet they are slowing the penetration at the same time . It's a tradeoff .
Good discussion . ;\)

Ive killed 35 plus deer with them and havent lost one yet. Killed a 200 pound plus deer in Kansas with a shot threw the shoulder.They work great on a steep angle or shooting at something quartering away.

I agree there are definitely broadheads that are durable enough to use multiple times such as the slick tricks, muzzies etc but I just won't use the rage broadheads more than once.I agree the rage 2 blades perform VERY well on steep angles!

Everything I've read about the Rage broadheads has made them sound like excellent broadheads, but how do you afford to shoot these things? I just looked up their prices. It would cost me $110 just for a seasons worth ((2) 3 packs @ $39.99/pack and a pack of practice heads $29.99). I always like to try new things, but this is 25% of what my bow cost.

I wouldn't worry with buying the practice heads. Myself and everyone I know who shoots the rage 2 blade head says they fly exactly like the field points.I think one practice head comes with the pack of three.They are a little pricey but to me they are well worth it!

I definately practice with every broadhead I shoot. But, I didn't know a practice head came in the 3 pack. That would help some with the price. Thanks

There aint a broadhead out, thats not overpriced these days.

I have used the Rage. And they are good but dont really give me that WOW factor.

I have also seen them fail. One on a turkey never opened ( still killed the bird) and once on a deer. Blades came off ( deer found the next day)

I still like fixed blades.

After spending thousands of dollars on hunting every year, I dont see the sense in skimping on something as important as $100 worth of broadheads!No matter what head you prefer, just make sure it is a quality head and that you are efficient with your rig.

A fast shooting bow over 300fps this wouldn't be an issue!

It would depend on the mass weight of the arrow as well . Speed is only part of the equation .

yes i fully stand by rage mechanical broad heads... muzzy was tough for me to let go of but the 2" hole it leaves is amazing and the entry exit hole provides a great blood trail.. the rear deployment is the key that way if you hit the deer it has to open ..

So obviously money is an issue to some guys, certainly ME.
Last year I tagged 11 bow killed deer, the year before, 13, the year before 17...my broadhead cost...ZERO! ZILCH! NADA!

Guys, I am telling you...after using all kinds of broadheads, some of the MOST expensive and some knock-offs, I found a GREAT broadhead and broadhead company in Magnus Stingers. I have killed MANY deer, some HUGE ones with these heads without a single failure. I called the company and spoke with their Senior sales rep. about their lifetime guarantee. He said lierally and I quote, "We (Magnus) do not care if you use our broadhead to open a paint can, if it breaks or dulls, we will replace it FREE". That is a direct quote. I spoke with him on the phone again last week, he said the company is still growing.

What a gimmick...to have so much confidence in your product that you guarantee it for LIFE!

They expect you (me) to box them up and ship them back after passing through a deer and into the dirt. I could sharpen and re-use but hey, they send me a new one...FREE.

So every year I buy a pack or two to add to my arsenal, and head to the woods. Every year I lose 1 or more heads and my kid does too. I can now go all year with my supply and send them all back for replacements and free t-shirts and hat ( a bonus for sending in pics of your buck kills). Adn it costs...NOTHING!

BTW, make no mistake, these are exceptional heads. IMO the BEST performing cut on contact fixed 4-blade out there.

BTW Radar, good point about penetration, but in most cases, that is rarely a problem with todays equipment.

i haven't shot the rages personally. but i am definately planning on trying them this year.

for those of you concerned about having to buy new heads all the time, you can buy just the replacement blades instead of new heads, save you a little money.

And have any of you that used them had any trouble with them opening from the force of the shot itself? if that makes sense.

I have never seen replacement blades for Rage heads at most proshops that sell them ? I would hope that most hunters would not reuse them once they pass through a deer if replacement blades are not readily available .

they are little bit of a pain in the quiver though, pretty much my only stipulation. Killed two with them last season, and have no problems with them.

Oh yeah baby!!


I toom these two deer. The Doe blood drainage was unreal!!

I got to see the impact real good on the Scrub buck and when the arrow hit him it looked as if someone tipped over a gallon of milk from the store but it was red!! Iyt is like running a sword threw them! Fastest ethical harvest I have ever witnessed! They have no idea what happened. The lights just go out in seconds!

Very well said! The rage advertising is now saying "expand your kill zone" I think this is terrible, but I see their angle.

I can pro form them for less than I get muzzys so Im going to try them. Im hoping for a slightly quartering shot (towards or away I dont care) so I can shoot for the off shoulder and compare to how my muzzys whould have done. Well see how they perform.

Radar, I am with you, I have a hard time believing the rages would out penetrate most fix blades...for the reasons you listed above your last post. What do you make of the video clip of the three in the gelatin? Just a one time occurance, hookey what? I do know that in watching videos the rages do not seem to give pass throughs with nearly the % of shots as fixed blades.

Gelatin is a much different substance than hide , bone and meat . Test parameters can also be favored towards Rage heads to skew results as well . Independent tests might yield completely different results .
I will say I have used Rage heads and killed deer with them . Like BigCountry said , they didn't produce that wow factor for me .
LOL @ BigJ who once was a big Slick Trick promoter , now that boo is with rage , he shows no loyalty at all to Slick Trick . \:D
I just shoot whatever works for me . Rage heads are disposable heads , I want durable heads . It gets too expensive to replace Rage heads when I want to kill allot of deer .

I assure you that a razor sharp, cut on contact fixed blade will out perform ANY mechanical in penetration. But I TRULY believe that the only difference on good hits will be how far the fixed blade penetrates the ground after the pass through. This I speak from experience!

I agree , most good hits will yield the same outcome . I have shot deer broadside on level ground , and never found the arrow after the shot on many occasions . I think most members on this forum speak from experience in regards to broadhead performance . It's all about what each hunter has confidence in using from past experience or from practice .

Any good ,sharp and strong broadhead placed in the vitals should produce a decent bloodtrail leading to recovered game .
Shot placement is everything . There are no magic broadheads on the market that will make up for poor shot placement .


And that right there sums up all you need to know about archery hunting.

I LOVE shooting Broadheads. My recommendation? the one you have confidence in. It is not uncommon for me to use an expandable or a fixed blade in the same day. I have my bow tuned to accommodate me and my "mood".

The problem in this thread is that everyone is right and nobody is wrong because a sharp Broadhead in the boiler room will kill a deer dead. Most of the BH listed I have shot. Some of the ones people swear by I do not like. Some BH that people say have caused them to lose deer I will use at a drop of a hat.

Replacement blades? I don't rely on anyone to carry them locally so I stock up a head of time. I have never seen slick trick blades in the local shops or rage blades, why? simple, the store does not want to sell you blades they want to sell you BH. Part of Bow Hunting is preparation and shooting and buying BH's should be done WAY in advance. Every year several threads will be started by stressed hunters trying to get their arrow to fly because they are not prepared. Last minutes should not be spent stressing over arrow flight but trying to negotiate for kitchen passes.

as said before,ANY broadhead will do the job on a well placed shot. it was the devastation on a VERY poor shot that impressed me so much with the rocket(now trophy ridge) miniblasters at just over half the cost of the rage.

RADAR,
Most posts I make are meant to help the hunters who may be looking for good advice or recommendations about things that I have experienced. I know that MANY readers on this forum have much experience in all types of hunting, while many more are still in their early years of bowhunting.

I write posts because I have been bowhunting for a quarter century. While I am certain that most do not care wether or not I have killed several P/Y bucks, or triple digit bow kills, I guess it is important to establish some form of "credentials" in an effort to gain confidence with those who read my posts.

I, like you I'm sure, TRULY desire to help save some of the frustration that I experienced in my earlier years while trying to learn effective harvest skills. Of all the "ingredients" combined to make CONSISTENTLY SUCCESSFUL and humanely as possible bow kills, I think NOT ONE THING is as important as the hunters broadhead. Afterall, in the end, THE BROADHEAD IS what ultimately KILLS the deer.

The sharpest...
widest.....
most accurate...


(and maybe, at least in my case...affordable)

Radar,
Truer words have never been spoken.

But in reality...what often happens is a far cry from a well placed shot! It isn't necessarily the fault of the bowhunter. Sometimes things just happen. A step taken, the un-seen branch or twig, wind, rain, you know what I mean. Sometimes things just happen!

When possible, the largest, sharpest hole put "almost anywhere" in a deer will put it down quicker than the counterparts smaller hole!

I agree , but I have also seen dozens of threads about less than perfect shots that were blamed on broadheads .
Rage heads are good mechanicals , but I think they are over hyped . They don't perform miracles .

Again...right on.

Not only have I seen and read where hunters blame broadheads for losing deer, but also I've seen them lose deer because they thought they didn't need, or know, how lethal the shots they made really were.

There is NO CURE for poor preparation!
