You can kill them with a spoon if you hit the deer in the right spot.m If you take a Magnus stinger, Old schol bear or any other fixed blade broadhead and hit the deer properly, its Dead.

In all the years of using Stingers, I have never lost a deer. I also know people that have used Rage and they lost deer. Personally, if you have a poor shot selection or bad shot, every broadhead made has the chance of producing a lost deer.

Very true. How would people kill deer today if they had to go back to the broadheads that were used 10 years ago? 20 years ago? 30...I guess that we wouldn't be able to find them because they would all get away. Wait, you wouldn't have to look for them because the old style don't fly straight.

My grandfather told me when he started archery hunting in the 60's he started with a $5 fiberglass longbow from sears. He got a dozen wood arrows, and glued on 2 blade cut on impact heads. He shot quite a few deer with that set up. I don't think it could be done today.

Good concept, but I don't think they will sell many. Rage had a massive marketing campaign to entice the city slickers into buying it. The Reign doesn't have any promotional budget that I have seen, nor a sales budget (located in the local archery shops).

I loved the videos but they made a fatal mistake. They pitted themselves against the Rage, and I can tell you that they are going to have a tough fight against that consumer. I personally do not like the Rage heads at all and will never buy one, but I would give this a product a try. But not at that price point. $40 for 3 heads is the same as the Rage, and the Rage is sold to the slickers as I stated before who have the cash to blow. They should have a price point of $29 for 3, and they may have a chance to stay in business.

They are going to have to be endorsed by Lee, Tiffany, Uncle Ted, and all the other known names out there. Because the price point is so high and no promotional budget, this will be a one season sell.

I 'll stick with what works for me and has proven successful year in and year out Slicktricks. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Although these Reign do look like they would get good penetration
