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.

I've herd good things about the Magnus Stinger Buzzcuts. But don't you have to line the blades up with your fletchings?

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.
