To be perfectly honest, after nearly 36 years archery hunting, I can't say anymore which is better. I used to think only fixed blades should be used. Now, after seeing the damage the rage has done for my son and buddies, there is a sure balance for debating the merits of both. I'm an old Muzzy fixed blade proponet and still am today, however, I'll be shooting a new crossbow this year and will try the new rage broadheads for crossbows. I would still steer you to try a couple and see which fly the best for you and just have the confidence that it will do it's job. I would still trust a fixed blade to pass through slightly better than a mechanical. So to answer you, let the debate begin!
