I'm new to this but really like this sight. I got a question for y'all what is the best broad head. I shoot 1.5 three blade rage and hate them. Shot 2 deer this past weekend the 1st one I shot only one blade opened the next was a complete pass through shot and only 2 opened any suggestions?

If all the blades aren't opening, I would try a different head. I have used all different varieties. 3 blade fixed muzzys. Rage 2 blade. NAP Spitfire. NAP Killzone. Ramcat 3 blade fixed. Cabelas 3blade fixed. None have ever failed me. I have failed me but not the heads. I have not tried the 3 blade mechanicals though.

Did you recover the deer?

Recovered the one yesterday but not the 1st one and trust me I'm not one to leave one laying in the woods. That's why I wanted some suggestions wondering if they have failed anybody else.

i shoot the 2 blade rage 125 grain and love them. IMO its the best BH money can buy but you will get a ton of opinions on this.

I switched to trophy ridge hammerheads a couple of seasons ago. Best thing i ever did. Haven't lost a deer since. Just be ready to change out the blades after every shot. Blades are cheap though .

A mechanical broadhead is mechanical. There is moving parts on them and they are more prone to not functioning properly. Get a good fixed blade head such as a Magnus stinger, or muzzy or something and u can quit worrying about broadhead performance, and worry more about your shot placement.
