    rage 3 blade questions

    Hey guys need some help here


    I got a 3 pack of 100 grain 3 blade rage broadheads from a guy

    brand new in package i had to cut the package open and they have the worst sharpened edges on them


    these are so dull my 3 yr old could play with them

    the blades as well as the COC tip edge actually has tool marks (makes them look like serrations but bad at that)

    anyone ever sharpen these im assuming i can do just like all my other blades


    i have pics but cannot get to post

    I always thought the tips were not very sharp. Blades seemed ok, killed a buck with one. You should be able to sharpen them... or buy new blades but then you wouldn't be saving any $.

    Rage blades just don't sharpen well ever from the factory or a professional like home job. You either get good ones or bad ones. Sounds like you got bad ones.

    Ive never seen any that I would call dull and ive never had a problem re-sharpening them to shave hair off my arm.
