Rage 2 Blade all the way my friend has 5 deer under his belt with these you could stick 4 fingers in the hole. I have 1 Ram 2 Pigs and 1 Deer with these amazing holes and massive blood trails with these broad-heads. I use to use G5's but these are much better. I was against the mechanical heads for years but these are much different. here is a link to my ram pic post with the hole it left it is the entrance hole. Texas Doll Ram Hunt

If you're trying to hunt for meat, dont the rage destoy a lot?

Nope not at all they are no worse than any other broad head and just slightly worse than a bullet. The only thing they destroy is a hair of rib meat. I know neither of us have ever had a problem. Also they definitely make finding your game much easier I know a few bow hunters who have lost their game using other broad heads. Massive blood trail to follow.

I know it's where you hit them that counts, I just have seen first hand that the Rage 3 blade is suspect and I won't be using it anymore. Don't know anything about the two blade Rage.

stick with what works.muzzy 3 blade all the way. The fixed blade vs mechanical BH is the same as revolver vs semi auto for carry.IMO its simple,the revolver has less a chance of something going wrong when you need it. Same for a BH

Born on a mountain raised in a cave huntin and fishin is all I crave

I said on here two years ago i double lunged an 8Pt with rage two blade and i can post a pic.Damage was severe but blades were destroyed and i know if i shot that deer with a spitfire or reaper after sharpening it would have went right back in quiver.I dont think their built well.

I think it's best I just stick with my fixed blades, had a buddy of mine give me a 3 blade rage to try out, but honestly I don't like it and will never put it on a arrow an just give it back to him next time I see him.
My fixed are fine and I REALY don't want to fool with rubber bands, and worring about if it's going to open or not. In flight or on the game.

In the last two months, I have seen a lot of posts re people switching from Rage to something else. I know nothing about them, never shot them, never had any reason to shoot them. All I know is they sure are expensive.
