Ok, most of the people that know me know that i am a rage lover. I have had great success and have never had but one deer go over 50 yards. I have killed 20 deer over the last few years with this broadhead. Alot of does and a few bucks. I killed 4 just last year.

Now with that said, i believe any broadhead will kill a deer. Its all about shot placement! I just have cofidence in a rage broadhead and love the big entry and exit hole. I will post a few pics on some of the deer i shot with it. Nothing big, just some deer. Notice the gut shot on the last pic. The deer went less the 60 yards. Now to the point of my posting. The one thing that scares me with these broadheads is the shoulder shot. I have have not had a experience with it yet, but most bad stories has to do with not busting the shoulder! No penatration bc of it.

Well guys this has all changed! The new Rage Chisel Tip is the answers to all the questions. I have bought and put some to the test. Old vs new and that tip is bone busting! I was shooting pork shoulders, ply wood, and ever tin metal. It out penetrates everytime/ I cant wait to use these this year. Now i know i want have any worries. This only my favorite broadhead even better. Just thought i would share!

Thanks for sharing. I unfortunately have had 1 experience with the shoulder shot with a Rage. Totally a bad shot on my part, and only got about 4 inches of penetration. I feel very confident I did not kill that deer. But it was my fault, bad shot. It's all about shot placement. But I like the idea of Rage giving you a better chance of killing the deer with a bad shot. Bad shots are going to happen if you hunt long enough, no matter how much practice.

Did you document the underlined part with pictures? I am not doubting you, just making a point that it would be even more convincing and pretty cool to see if you had pics to share with everyone. If not, maybe next time. Thanks for sharing your experience with the group.

Great news, if you are hunting plywood or tin, or hogs...but you are hunting thin skinned deer.

ANY sharp braodhead put where you put these heads will "put 'em down" and FAST.

And ANY broadhead shot in a TRUE gut shot area will NOT.

Broadheads kill deer by BLEEDING and SHOCK.

That is IT.

Nothing magic about that.

If you bow hunt long enough, and shoot enough deer, you are going to make a bad shot that NO BROADHEAD will compensate for at all.

Rage are good heads. But they still kill deer by blood loss.

It is good to have confidence in your equipment, nice post!

i never have trouble with the rubber bands. But the new broadhead have a new shock collar. Its nice. Rage hasnt introduced it yet, but the will have new plastic color that will go on any of there broadheads. From what i have seen of it, it will solve that problem.

Your right, as i stated; its all about shot placement. Rage doesnt kill deer any more dead then other broadheads. But it does cut bigger holes which can give you better blod trails to follow. Notice i said "it can". And that gut shot that killed that deer, it was lucky to see it fall in sight. I do feel the big cut help with hitting a good artery. Small area there. But i could of got lucky with any broadhead. I experience last year for the first time in my life a lost deer while bow hunting. So it does happen, but in my case; it was bad shot placement.

Yep, pretty much sums it up.
You gotta hit em in the right spot to kill quickly.
I personally use Spitfires and Have not had any problems out of them. I like the fact that you don't have to worry about rubberbands.
I also shot Muzzys for many years, and killed many deer with them. I once shot a small buck with them, I made a bad shot and hit him right in the shoulder. Even with the Muzzy and shooting 70 lbs the broadhead only looked to penetrate a couple of inches. I tracked that deer all day with a sparce blood trail and never found him. I saw him a month or so later on opening morning of the M/L season, he had a slight limp but otherwise looked to be doing fine.........untill I dropped him in his tracks with another shoulder shot with a 250 gr Hornady SST.
Just goes to show you, no matter the broadhead, for a quick kill shoot em through the boiler room.

Bout 15-years ago, I shot a 5X5 bull elk smack in the shoulder with a Thunderhead 125. He went about 150-yards and I had about 18" penetration. Until I had to start shooting a xbow, that is all I shot. Now I shoot something from NAP but I can never remember what it is.

How many other broadheads have you shot multiple deer with to have a true apples to apples comparison? Not doubting your positive experiences with Rage broadheads, just trying to better understand the big picture here.

I can tell you how many deer I have killed with different broadheads. A WHOLE BUNCH.
From Satellite to Rage. Fixed HUGE holes (Rocky Mountain Supreme) to tiny holes (Razorback 5) and EVERYTHING in between.

The bottom line... if I had DEEP pockets, money was NO OBJECT, or a broad head sponsor, it would definitely be Rage.

They are SHARP, ACCURATE, and cut a BIG HOLE.

Every newbie I help get started I recommend a Rage. THey will give you a margin for error.

After that, when the killing really gets up in the numbers of deer, they get VERY expensive. Can you imagine killing 10, 12, or 17 deer in one season with a Rage in your budget?

So the next best thing for the money , IMO, is the BPS Gator XP. Very similar characteristics. Quite a bit cheaper.

After you have become proficient, OR your blood lust wanes to just a few kills per season, say 1-3, Rage is still a good bet.

But for MY hard earned, blue collar dollar, I choose a VERY sharp, very accurate head that has not failed me in DOZENS of kills, and only cost me once.

Magnus Stinger 4 blade have never failed me.

I do not, have not, and probably won't ever be representing them, but they are a GREAT Company with GREAT customer service and a great product.

And that is my honest opinion.

Still, shoot what works for you. You need to have confidence in your equipment. And Rage DOES create some impressive blood trails.

I have killed several with a rage with great results. Have also had them come open in flight while practicing wich was enough to steer me back to the old two blade Magnus broadbeads. Very accurate and lots of penetration. Just what I have the most confidence in.

LOL he said the satellite that brings back memories. I've shot lots of heads but like mudbone said I've had them open on me in flight which is enough for me not to shoot them again. I like the spitfires never had one issue with them and they cut a hell of a hole! I shot a big mature buck square in the the shoulder and i mean right in the plate and still got enough penetration to cut his heart in 3 pieces and he didnt go 75 yds!!! Can you say SOLD!!!! If you can zoom in look at that cut and placement!

Being fortunate enough to have bow hunted for 30 yrs now, and having killed close to 200 deer with my bow, I like the no nonsense fixed heads, for a workhorse that will normally kill me multiple deer per head. I just dont see adding the chance for failure on a mechanical head when I have absolutely no need to take the chance!
SHOT PLACEMENT is KING, but that being said, its the less than perfect shots that tell the tale! I would recommend learning to be a VERY good tracker over changing broadheads anyday!

I sharpen my blades. If i buy three, they will last all year. I hit a tree on a pass thru on time and bent a blade, but replacement blades are cheap.

LOL he said the satellite that brings back memories. I've shot lots of heads but like mudbone said I've had them open on me in flight which is enough for me not to shoot them again. I like the spitfires never had one issue with them and they cut a hell of a hole! I shot a big mature buck square in the the shoulder and i mean right in the plate and still got enough penetration to cut his heart in 3 pieces and he didnt go 75 yds!!! Can you say SOLD!!!! If you can zoom in look at that cut and placement!

If you are replacing blades each time then I dont really consider that the same head.....I can use a Wasp several times without doing anytine to it unless I hit or rock or something after the pass-thru.

I killed three deer and a bobcat with the same rage and blades. The only time I change blades is if one breaks. I have bought 3 packs in 5 yrs and I usually kill a few a year.

I screwed one on when they were new and shot the biggest buck I ever have. Made a marginal shot(bout three inches high) but was shooting a sharp downhill angle. I have watched them go down on worse shots. It was a mistake on my part I think of all the time. But I won't be shooting those things again. I still get pics of this deer and he is probly in the 160s by now. Goooooooosh!
I'm goin to check my cams!!lol

Did you document the underlined part with pictures? I am not doubting you, just making a point that it would be even more convincing and pretty cool to see if you had pics to share with everyone. If not, maybe next time. Thanks for sharing your experience with the group.



don't be shooting up pork shoulders...them's for the smoker

I have used rage for a few years now and love them. I did have a few open in flight when I first started dialing them in. After that I use my daughters braces rubberbands over the top of the two blades to hold them intaked until they hit the deer. Have never had a deer go more than 50-60 yards.

Great idea! Does it shoot any different? I'll be calling a local orthodontist...

Put a rage in his cage and you will have a downed buck,they cant take that kind cutting.The proof is in the pudding ,when you can watch the majority of the deer you hit fall in sight of your stand
