I shoot the 3 blade 1 1/2in cut meat seeker. The first year I bowhunted I was pulling 50 pounds and they performed just fine! I would say you have more than enough energy.

I shot the 3 blade 2" meat seekers last year. Killed 2 deer. both didnt go 50 yards combined. Second was a buck and he took 2 bounds then tipped over.

Try em out and kill one!

I would go with a 1 3/8" cut Grim Reaper myself. You will have better penetration with a smaller cut. I wouldn't put anything else on the end of my arrows.

I tried these last year too! a nasty broadhead for sure! I shot two or three deer with them last year. They all ran about 30 yards and flopped.

If I was looking to try a different broadhead it would be grim reapers.
Rage sucks imo.

I will say I don't think the Rage sucks. Great entrance wounds and exit wounds with really thick blood trails. Rage has 2 issues penetration and pre-deployment. If you are shooting lighter weights than I wouldn't shoot a Rage. Go on YouTube and look up mature bucks shot with Rage. Most you see will not be pass throughs. At 60+ lbs. I think they are a great head. Anything less the 60 I probably wouldn't go with a Rage. But like I said earlier. You just can't beat a Grim Reaper!
