    Rage users, do they fly like field tips?

    I'm thinking about buying some rage broadheads. Do they fly like field tips?

    Ok, this is a tough one really. the practice tips fly as good a field points. however, i shot a real rage broadhead. one the just went through a deer, but it looked normal. Mind u this was only one shot, so dont take too much stock in it, the broadhead was about 3 inches low at 30yrd. it could have been me there is not doubt about that.

    2 years in a row, 2 different bows with the Rage 2 blade I have not had to make any adjustments for tuning broadheads

    I've used the practice tips and also shot two deer with the two blade rages and they've always gone exactly where I was aiming.

    My experience is that the practice head mimicks the point of impact for the real deal. You will see some heated debates on here of what will happen if one or both of the blades opens in flight. Some say it hits the same while others claim it drastically affects the point of impact. My thoughts are that it will affect flight if it prematurely opens, but I have not tested so I am purely speculating. When I shot them, I put a small rubberband over the midsection to keep them from opening in the quiver/midflight. It worked well. I was disappointed with their durability and the necessity of modifications brand new out of the package at the price, so I went back to fixed blades. However, IMO you will not find a more devasting broadhead if you use a bow with enough KE and put the shot where it counts. I have not ruled out using them again, but would like to see the manufacturer address some of the common complaints. Maybe next year.

    I did some testing with some of my stick bows and some 2 blade heads last year. If your setup is tuned then not a problem, even shooting them with one or both blades deployed . I even shot them(blades closed) bare shaft IE no fletch and they flew well out of a tuned setup Tried some with under and over spine arrows and with the blades closed not a problem, with them open that was something else. And one tore a monster hole in the metal siding of our Indoor arena lol had to fix that quick before the wife saw it!!

    Only thing I can think of that would affect a well tuned bow and shooting with the blades deployed is wind, enough of a wind would cause more drift than it would with the blades closed. Randy

    The 2 bladed Rages fly exactly like my feild points. When you take them out of your quiver make sure they are closed. They are the
    most leathal head I've ever used. The blood trail they leave is unbelivable. I've harvested about deer with them and they don't go far. Most drop within sight.

    After my Muzzy practice blades hit different then the real blades I quit useing the practice tips. I use the real rage's for practice then slap on new blades and o-rings before the hunt.

    And yes they do fly the same as field points.
