I use the Rage 2 blades & have no issues with them
even if it were to fail to open it looks like it would still leave a pretty good size wound
all I can say is the doe I shot last year blead out within 40 yards & it looked like someone painted a 4' wide path through the woods
also worked well on my Turkey last fall
they fly very nice with my setup
but like others said for mechanicals I like the rear deployment
I used to shoot muzzy's years ago & never had any issues with them either never shot anything with them other then targets but seemed to fly ok
