Jimmers, I use the two inch two blade. I have had wonderful results.
I have used many different brands and have stopped looking (for the time being).
Sometimes feel uncomfortable with the band and the lack of snap. -SL
Alot of guys dont say this but I had a good experience with them this year. They worked fine for me and gave an awesomw blood trail and complete pass thru. The only thing ill agree with is that they cant fix a bad shot. I recently switched my wife from miniblasters to the Rage 40KE 1.5" cut 2 blades and it was devasting on her doe at 25 yds shooting 25 inch draw and 45 lbs with a pass thru. just depends on the hit. I used the 100 gr 2 blades
I know several guys that used them over the past few years. One guy loves them, the other two hate them. The biggest complaint I heard was the lack of penetration. Obviously, if you hit right behind the shoulder in the rib cage you are ok, but they were complaining about shots on some bone. That is all I really know
Check out the Rage site uncensored footage. I counted 18 deer or antelope kills on it. Of those 18 kills there were only 6 complete passthrus. The manufacturer's own advertisement shows poor penetration. If the deer drop in sight I'm not sure how much of an issue that is. For me I want passthrus.
i'm still kinda of torn. my penetration this year was just like some of the first shots on the video(about half the arrow ). the rage just poked out the opposite side armpit, thought it may have stopped because of the opposite leg , but now i don't know. either way the deer was dead in 40 yards. p.s. the shot was through the rib cage, rage 2 blade with a tuned bow.
Every broadhead arrow can be installed improperly by a hunter. Modern hunters assume a mechanical broadhead will automatically work. Wrong.
Every hunter should spend a half hour see how the broadhead works; that it does work; how it can be installed incorrectly.
With such attention to detail, I found I installed a broadhead incorrectly with two different kinds of broadheads.
And the result could have been me blaming the broadhead, instead of the broadhead installer, me.
