Seriously can't make up my mind on the Trypans or Raptor Tricks for this year. Any comments in helping this decision?

Cheap shot? Not sure what thats supposed to mean.
I was trying to make a stupid joke. Cheap Shot are the plastic broadheads you can get 10 for $12. They might can kill large game with a powerful bow, but I wouldn't dare use them on a deer or any trophies. Turkeys or coyotes, or close range hogs might be okay.

Don't get wrong is it possible they can bend or break yes what long blade is unbreakable. I am also really liking the design and simplicity and strength of the NAP sling blade

The Raptor trick appears to open the blades once it's already in the animal. Which cannot be a good thing because I would think that it requires a lot more force to open up against flesh once inside. I would definitely like some insight with these.

Everyone hopes and wants that pass through but doesn't always happen. It's different for everyone but for me I like a big entrance just in case I don't get that pass through I have good blood from the entrance. This was my doe last year using hypodermic. Hit shoulder on opposite side almost had a complete pass through stopped at fletching but a horror show at the entrance and died in sight.

Trypan all day, better entrance hole and blade angle.

Of those I'd go with the Rage, because the large over the top broadheads limit penetration a bit. Of all broadheads, Id go with the NAP Killzone.

Rage would be my choice. I used Wasp Jak hammer and Grim Reaper for years. It seems the longer the blade the longer it takes to deploy inside the chest cavity. If you get a high hit its possible to only nick the the front lung due to had not being fully deployed. I noticed when I shot the small Reapers my tracking distance was shorter then the big Reapers. I tried a hyprodermic on a doe last year and was very impressed. I think the Trypan will be a great head.

Rage Trypan without hesitation. I don't know if they will penetrate the dirt as well but they will definitely blow two bigger holes through a deer than most others when shot with some momentum behind them.

Trypan by a wide margin
