Thanks for the input on the fixed blades but I have one unopened 3 pack of the Rage and one of Meat Seekers, besides I'm looking forward to seeing what they will do. I've always been a gadget freak.

One thing I'm thinking about is this issue of "sail" with a fixed blade. I only shoot 30 yards and have to wonder if "sail" would even be an issue at that distance?

Also, I'm not writing off the fact that maybe crossbow bolts go crazy in a deer for factors the manufacturers don't want to talk about. After all the bolt isn't released near as smooth as a compound and that rather short thing is traveling awful fast.
