I knew and that you are using the 2-blade. The giant 8 pt my buddy hit, one of the blades failed to open. I hate the Rage 3 blades. He lost the biggest buck of his life. The nice 9 pt he did take was his 70th bow shot deer. My son has switched over to the 2-blades also. I had serious thoughts of shooting my buck just under/behind the ear, I know he'd go down on the spot. The crossbow has given myself and my neighbor/hunting buddy new archery life. With 4 shoulder surgeries, 2 on each side, my Michigan buddy will at some point have to switch to a crossbow to stay in the woods. Crossbows aren't for everyone however they do allow those that have physical issues to keep hunting and that's good enough for me.
