Rage and broad head target

Can I shoot a Rage X Bow broad head into a block target and not damage the head?

No....they will tear the block and if the block is aged and left outside in the past it will go threw it....the rage itself will be ok...

Re: Rage and broad head target

Its not really what target will stop it, there many that will..but it getting the arrow out of the target...I'm useing a feed bag filled with old clothes and it stops everything...but i'm shooting a practice Rage...so your best bet is to buy a practice Rage...otherwise your going to be putting more money out for targets and broadheads..

Re: Rage and broad head target

Thanks guys, I was just concerned that the mechanicals would open before impact when shooting from a Crossbow. I have used them from a Compound, but wasn't sure how they react from a crossbow. I don't want that shot of a lifetime to fly 3 yards off course due to a premature opening. I am sure I am worrying about nothing, but that's me. I may stck with Slick Tricks.

I've done alot of testing in crossbows with mechanicals. I'd stick with the Slick Tricks! Strictly my opinion here, but I can see no good reason to add somethinig mechanical (that can fail) to any hunting setup. There are a million things that can go wrong in the deer woods, I sure don't need something else to worry about. Slick Tricks aren't my favorite, but at least I've never seen one fail. Slicks will likely go to the right and low, when compared to your field points. Good luck this fall!
