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.

My question is How many deer have you killed with the SAME Rage bh? I have a buddy who loves them but says they are one and done.....Whereas I can shoot 3 or 4 deer with the same Wasp Hammer SST if I am lucky.
