Rage Broadheads

6 posts in this topic

I shot a doe with these and have one complaint. The 2" cutting distance was to great to fit between the ribs. Verticle it wouldn't be a problem but mine hit horizontal.It broke throug the rib but lost all it's energy doing it. At 13 yards I didn't even get a pass through. I am wondering if anyone else has had any issues yet?

That is a possibility. 2" holes are nice but I prefer a smaller hole where I know I will get a pass thru. As long as the blades get through the vitals it will do what it was suppose to but pass thrus help with tracking. With that said even with small fixed blades at times you won't have a pass thru.

I use the three blade and I know four guys that use the two blade. This season the five of us have taken 12 deer so far and zero complaints. They leave a huge hole on either side of the animal and destroy whatever is in between. We rate them as the best broadhead we've ever used.

I'm with matt. I think they are a pretty sweet broadhead. I shot a doe with the 2 blader last fall. The shot was a little back and she still didn't go too far.

The 2 Inch diameter is more of an advantage than it is a disadvantage.

I've shot 3 deer so far this year, 2 with a Rage and 1 with a Muzzy MX4, I have alway's been a fan of Muzzy's and not much of a fan of expandables but I decided to try out the Rage 2 blade. The first deer I arrowed (with the Rage)went 5 yards, the second deer I arrowed (with a muzzy)went 45 yards, the 3rd deer I arrowed (with a Rage)went less than 30 yards. All three deer were shot at less than 18 yards, all 3 were lung shots. On the 3rd deer, the arrow was not a pass thru, the arrow went thru both shoulder blades and ribs going in and comming out. With the internal devistation on what the Rage broadhead does, I would much rather have the deer go down fast than to have to track it. All 3 deer were shot in a highly populated urban hunt, the last thing I want is the deer to travel very far or to possibly loose an arrow (with a passthru). I'm definately a fan of the Rage, if it means the down side is arrow looses energy and does not go completely thru, and the up side is the deer drop within site, I'm all for it. It can be expensive cause with the arrow not passing thru on deer number 3, it was busted in 4 pieces. My only "complaint" is the availabilty, the 2 blade broadheads are in such a high demand, the poor folks at the factory are busting their butt trying keep up with the demand.

Many broadheads will drop a deer fast if the arrow is placed very well in the boiler room. I have shot two deer to date this season and neither has went more than 30 yards. Both shots were through both shoulders and into the heart lung area and cleared the deer.

3 blade Muzzies.

      I see on the cam that Joe's gate is open, but the access is pretty trashed with cones out front. Is it still driveable?

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.
