They're too expensive. Good marketing can fool people into buying them I guess.

They were supposedly better when they first came out, but once exploded in popularity Rage cheaped out on materials and now they malfunction a lot more.

What do they teach you in hunter safety about a gun safety - it's a mechanical device that can fail. Same with a mechanical broadhead. It serves a great purpose but moving parts can break a lot more easily than a fixed head. Plus I like to get more penetration... If I were to stop using thunderheads, I'd probably go with a 2 blade Magnus Stinger.

Too expensive? No more expensive than most others on the market. If you shop around you can get them around $30 or less. Too expensive, ha, what a lousy excuse. \:\)

I'm not spending $10 more for 3 broadheads that are known to fail infinitely more often than the broadheads that I use now.

They are too expensive for how poorly made they are.

Catman, you've never used rage before yet you're quoting hearsay. I've been using rage bhs since 2007. This is my eighth season using them. I have never had one fail me and the only arrow that didn't pass through was a high shoulder shot. I've broken the leg before on a shot. To say they fail without using them is pointless. Yes, I've heard some guys that used them say they failed but for everyone one of those guys, 10 more have experienced no failures. Use them before you knock them.

One thing to note, you use thunderheads. I've used thunderheads. Wait until you hit a deer perfect and can't find it because the small cut gets clogged with hair and leaves no blood trail. That is a sickening feeling. I've had it happened. Fortunately we found the deer the next morning.

Rage put a serious hole through both sides that will not clog ;\) They almost always fall within 40 yards if you put the right shot on them. If the truth be known the ones that have failed where most likely operator error.
