What happens when you shoot the trypan into foam?I have both heads, I've killed a coyote and a doe with the trypan
And have shot one of the dead meats at a target twice. It didn't open after two shots into foam. (Arrow was sticking out the back of the target all 3 blades locked in place) so two brand new heads and one that's been shot twice are collecting dust in my broadhead box and the rage get to hunt with me. I've gotten excellent results with the trypan so far.
They may work fine on game, but confidence is everything and I don't have any confidence to use the dead meat
you have a slow light weight arrow. Id probably use the G5. Many tests showing it penetrates better than the RAGE. I think you may run into penetration issues with the RAGE and your setup.I went and bought both. Any recommendations for which to try first? 395 grain arrow at 265 fps.
I have shot the trypan/hypodermics and the G5 Deadmeat in 6 different deer now. 2 were trypans, 2 were hypos, and 2 were with G5 Deadmeats. I can tell you that all deer died fast, however, I had one deer run far with very little blood trail and that was a trypan. The wound clogged up with a chunk of lung only allowing little drops to come out (I did not get an exit as it hit the offside shoulder). The deer only made it 60 yards so not a big deal. The Deadmeats left a very large wound (larger than the blade diameters) and have much less chance of clogging due to being a 3 blade. Don't get me wrong, I have no issue with hunting with Trypans at all and will keep the ones I have BUT for me, the Deadmeats are just about the best broadhead ive used. No rattling blades, Excellent blade retention system, great cutting diameter, and much better penetrators than the RAGE. Just my two cents.I have shot both, though not as much with the G5, I didn't have any real problems with them, but they didn't do the same thing a trypan does, leave two big holes, and that's really what I want.
