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.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
