Out of the mechanicals you listed, I'd go with the Rage 2-blade.

I will put another vote in for rocket mechanicals. For me I like the sidewinders. They leave one nasty hole and have had no problems out of them. Been using them for about 4 years now. Good luck

If I were to shoot a mechanical , it would have rear opening blades like the Rage and Snyper to improve penetration .

i'm doing just the reverse. I'm going from Rocket Hammerheads (100gr) to Muzzy 3s. Ive shot one deer with the Rockets, killed it quickly, but the arrow got stuck in the far shoulder at 17yds. My brother killed a doe last year with them, hit her low and the blade's "foot" deflected the arrow right along her underside, which split her wide open. It was not a fun tracking job (lots of thick stuff, sparse trail), but we found the deer within 75yds. I have other hunting partners that have had zero problems (and they kill more deer than I do), but the issues with deflection and penetration have caused me to go the fixed blade route this season. I will probably still shoot mechs, especially at turkeys, but not this season. Good luck with whatever you pick, buzzr.

Heard from a couple of different people recently on Rage broadheads. They are shooting bows that are in the 290 fps range and have had pass thru's on 3 different deer and the rage broadhead DID not open up. Luckily the deer were hit fatally and found. The holes were the size of the arrow shaft. I will not shoot any mechanical.

go with the 2 blade rage and just know it seems to be what it is cracked up to be. Just shot the practice heads and am pleased with the flight......
