I shoot 100 gr muzzys with my primary hunting bow. the impact point is presicley the same as with my 100gr field points. so I cant reason why I should go to mechanicals. plus I can get 6 muzzys for less than I can get 3 rages.

The only reason I can think of is if the hole is twice as big. I too am an old Muzzy user. I haven't purchased the broad heads for the cross bow yet.... but the compound will continue to see Muzzy MX-3 heads. The Rage 2 blade for cross bows doesn't use an O-ring to contain the blades from employing prior to the target hit. Don't know much other than that.
I just threw away 6 good rage broadheads this season. I switched to montec g5s. I loved the rage for 2 yrs but if you get any kind of angle to your shot they have a hard time going threw bone or even rib cage (not good) I lost a monster because of a 10 yrd angle shot the arrow only went in about 8 inches. Broadside shots theres nothing better but if your going for a wall hanger you get all kinds of messed up shots you have to take or watch them walk away.
I also lost a doe from a 15 yrd shot slight angle shot same stuff.
I have friends who love them and I have other friends who threw theres in the trash last season as well.
Ya wanna crush bone use fixed blades
Redhead Blackouts are what I use. 3 fixed blades. They are on the smaller side of cutting diameter. Mechanical broadheads always run the risk of failing (even if not likely, I don't like taking chances) so I go for fixed. Also, for $20 you can get a 3 pack at bass pro. Rages and your other big name broadheads are in the range of $40+. Also replacement blades are also high. Blackouts run aroud $15 bucks for new blades. My cousin shot a doe with a Rage this weekend and it made a good wound but still wasn't much more of a blood trail than normal broadheads.
