Very impressed as well. I've killed 3 with them this year and 3 with rages. The durability of the killzone is much better, and the blades do seem to stay sharp.

Only thing I haven't done with them is replace the blades. I'm ordering replacements online today. To see how that goes.

Also have some swackers now I'm going to try this year or next. Rages I have had issues with in durability and penetration. Killzones seem to be better on both fronts.

Update:

Evidently, the replacement blades are hard to come by. So far I have checked a Gander Mountain, and the BPS here by Louisville. No dice.

They are on amazon, but have almost a $6 shipping fee. Not paying that. I'll check Nashville BPS over the holidays and see if they have them.

I put one down with killzone this year, i dont think the entrance is quite as big as the normal 2 blade rage however everything else is better... way better. No rattling blades everytime you move, no rubberbands, dont worry about them coming open in the quiver or in flight or on my finger as i shoot, and the trocar tip (which i havent tried the rage trocars yet) is far superior to a cut on contact blade IMO unless you are shooting low poundage. I dont care about durability really since i usually just stick the bloody arrow back in my quiver and shoot it at a predator or turkey or something the head isnt quite so critical but they ARE more durable head from what ive seen so far, blades dont seem to be any more durable but the head itself seems to be.

I shot another deer with a killzone this morning and it did a really great job. From what I have seen the penetration is hands down better than rage ( came out the brisket with enough energy to take out another deer... or two lol), that skinny trocar tip is something else (seems to be better then the muzzy trocars), head is fine blades are ruined again, entrance hole was just like the first deer i shot which is a little smaller entry and little larger exit compared to a rage... well smaller in the sense that it was about 5 inches vs about 6 with a rage. Anyhow definately my favorite heads ive tried to date.
