Prairieshadow, I would just stick to the rage 2 blades there have been no probs that I know of but have heard probs with the 3 blade. 2 blade cuts a bigger hole anyways..
I would rather shoot a field tip at a deer than a muzzy
the 2 blades are illegal in SD as you can not use a mech broadhead with a cutting diameter greater than 1 7/8" hence the reason i went with the 3's.
Whats your reason for hating muzzy's? They are a pretty tried and true broadhead in my book.
