I am with you I shoot the rage 2 blade biggest holes I have ever seen put in a deer. Switched from thunderheads will never go back... Everytime sombodys helps me trail a deer shot with the rage they end up buying the rage and dumping there fixed blades.

I shot 100gr 2 blades last year, the entry and exit holes were huge.  Deer never traveled more than 50 yds.  Even with the huge holes they didn't bleed out like you would think, the chest cavity was full of blood.  I read somewhere that the 2 blades holes don't allow as much bleeding out because the cut closes right up.  I'm going to give the three blades a try this year.  Regardless I don't plan on switching from rage anytime soon.

I have heard many similar compliments on the Rage Broadhead by other hunts as well. However my question to any of you is has any one had a BAD experience with this broadhead yet? Most expandables bring out at least a few horror stories...arrow deflecting, etc etc.

I love them ! Work great on turkeys as well! The one complaint I do have is that  have had them open up in my quiver while traveling or going into stand, but just make sure they are closed when you get there and from there your on your way to massive blood trails. From what Ive seen that cut does not close up too fast theres blood everywhere.

Glad to hear everyone else likes them.  Hope to find out myself this weekend for the opener.  I feel better about my choice now.  Thanks, Panman

Hey Schlupis,
 
Did your practice blade fly the same as your field tips? I shoot a crossbow in TN, and the practice head flew quite a bit different than the field point.

Mine flew the same.

Ya know I really thought hard about buying those. I went with the grimm reapers instead but Im hoping they will do just as good. It was a hard choice for me... and after hearing all this talk Im hoping I didnt make the wrong descision
