mine looked like roadkills with a mack truckIowaSwitchback
"Will just send them Rage my way I'll put them to good uses... "
I AGREE SHOT ME A PM WILL SEND MY ADDRESS AND MAIL THEM 3 OR 2 BLADES IM NOT GREADY EVEN PRACTICE TIPS. DULL BLADES AND BROKE HEADS AS WELL
SHOT A DEER WITH ONE LAST NIGHT LOOKED LIKE A BLOOD HIGHWAY GOING TO STICK WITH THEM.
I could be wrong but this does not look like hating. It looks like a good honest review.Some of you guys on here seem to live for nothing other than to hate on certain things. Are you all that bored?
I used Rage last season with great success...1 buck and 4 does. Great blood trails and all recoveries within 100 yards of POI. All shots were less than 30 yards; found there mark, and I was shooting a 70lb X-force with 27" draw.
IMO the problem with Rages comes with lower poundage bows/lighter arrows (less KE) and shots that are off the mark. Yes, we all strive for a perfect hit, but let's face it bad shots happen from time to time with all the variables that come into play in a hunting situation. A hit too far foward will likely get poor penetration in the shoulder with a Rage, while a fixed blade at sufficient KE will likely blow through it. For this reason, along with price and durability, I will not be using them this season.
$40 for 3 with practice head is darn steep especially when the cutting tip and blades are not razor sharp out of the package. Also, forget replacement blades, the head is done after one shot! I could maybe live with that, but not when you factor in the other deficiencies. Now it could be a great broadhead if it came out of the package with a...robust head, better/durable cutting tip, sharper blades, and better blade locking system to keep them from opening in the quiver or in flight. Hopefully, the quality will catch up to the price next year. Until then, it is back to fixed blades for me.
I'm not bashing, just callin it like I see it.
