rage practice blades

Have those of you using the rage found the practice blade they include is a good indication of how the actually mechanical flies?

As far as I can tell the flight is Identical.  I did have an old one of mine break the other day though....no idea why.  the blunt tip and one side of the head itself broke off right below the screw hole, it also took the allen screw with it.  It still has one side sticking up though.... I have shot it a few more times and it still flys as good as the other practice tip I have.

When I began to use this broadhead it was called the "Sniper". Now it has been refined a bit and is sold as the "Rage".
 
The Sniper did not come with a practice tip, so I used one from the package. It shot exactly like a field tip.
 
So now that I have shot up all of my Snipers and replaced them with Rages, I haven't used the practice tip. I suppose I should.

Without a doubt they fly just like a field tip..  which gives me a lot of confidence when I finally get to shoot at a deer I know that broadhead is going right where I aim.

I was out shooting Rage 2 yesterday.
 
My conclusion using the  Rage practice tip versus my field tips:
 
They flew straight, however at 30+ yards I noticed Rage ended up lower than my field tips.

i agree with sailfish that it seems like my rage 3 blades hit lower than my feild points should i adjust my sights or is it me?

I use rage two blades. out to 60 yards, which is the farthest i can shoot with my sight, they fly identical to my practice tips, and the rage practice tips also fly identical to the actual heads. i also get identical flight from my G5 montec fixed blades. i used to have differences, but now my bow is tuned up better, made all the difference in the world. a perfectly tuned bow should shoot the rage and a good quality fixed blade just like practice tips, mine does anyway out to 60 yards.

My 3 blades also shoot a little low from 30 yards on compared to my field points.  At 20 they are exactly the same.  Panman
