Rage 2 blade 1.5"

Postby Goose » Sat Mar 07, 2009 5:41 am

I see that Rage has come out with a new 1.5" version of their 2 bladed head, still a 100 grain.
They are advertising it as a head for those bows with less kinetic energy...
Seems like a good idea to me.

Is it the exact same broadhead just 1.5 inch? Hopefully they will use better rubber for the o-rings or improve that design, I have heard of alot of people having bad luck with them including myself. I put rubber bands on my rage 2-blades to make sure they dont open anymore. They do make quite the hole though.

I believe it's the same design only smaller cutting diameter.

I'm curious how much more energy it takes to push the 2 inch than the 1.5 inch.

awesome, ive experienced nothing but bad with the 3 blade and only heard good about the 2 blade but couldnt use the 2 blade in SD because the cutting dia was to large. looks like i have another option now..

On the 2 inch it actually hyper extends to 2.5" so I'm thinking the 1.5 will hyper extend to 2". According to the add it says that the blades are swept back more than the 2.5".
 
PrairieShadow, I would recommend trying them I've had good luck with them.

The rage website says nothing about a 1.5 2 blade yet.
 
I will be hard pressed to buy anything made by the field logic company as they have yet to respond to my email sent in November about thier rage 3 blade head.
