They truly are "like throwing an axe at an animal," however I had a less than perfect experience with the Rage 2-blade on October 27th. Put a perfect broadside shot (double lung) on a buck at 20 yards. Arrow was covered in blood, stuck in the ground, complete pass-through. Absolutely no blood trail at all. Not one single drop. Thank God the beast laid dead a mere 60 yards away, and I heard him crash so he was easy to recover. This is the first Rage hit i've made or heard about that didn't have a blood trail that looked like it came from a fire hose. Maybe it just didn't open up the whole way? Anyone else have a similar experience?
