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.

I'd like to see TWRA legalize explosive broadheads, heck almost everything else is legal... \:\)

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 . ;\)


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 ..
