1) The company that now makes Rage broadheads bought the company that makes Snypers.
2) Different designs in the way they retain the blades in the closed position. The Snypers are a proven design....I have yet to hear any field ( i.e. kills) reports on how well they work.
3) The Rage 2 blade is a full 2" cut while the Snyper was 1 3/8"
4) I have read some preliminary test results on their 3 blade Rage and there seems to be a consensus that the 3 blades hang up on each other and fail to deploy. Something to keep in mind.
If the 2 blades open well on animals I would have to say that a 2" cut will put the deer down in a hurry. I have shot about 8 or 9 deer with the 2 blade Snypers and they just seem to go down fast although I was not extremely impressed with the blood trails. I just don't think a 2 blade slit will bleed as profusely as a 3 blade cut.
Field Logic (maker of the Block targets) is the parent company of both heads. Take it to the bank - I heard it directly from Bruce Barrie over the phone last fall.Barryonyx said:So your saying that Rage bought Barrie Archery???? I'm not saying your a liar, just kinda unbelievable. Rocky's have been around for a while.
