Two of our hunting group love the 3 blade Rage heads, my son being one of them and has good success not perfect though. I've experienced many times what the Muzzy heads due and it's amaizing. I'm not a fan of the Muzzy 4 blade as it cuts a smaller hole. I have no experience with the Rage 2 blades. My own opinion is the Rage 3 blade expands too much energy at the point of contact vs the Muzzy MX3. This only my thoughts.

I have never shot a fixed blade
I shot rocket hammerheads for years with dead deer on every shot
last year we all shot 3 blade rage with good results, one friend did hit a doe to far back and never found it
This year i wanted to go back to hammer heads but they were out ,
so i got G3 T5 broad heads you have to watch them to make sure the spider clip is holding the blades tight , i dont like that so much

That's why I shoot the Magnus Stingers guys... TAKE them out of the package, SCREW THEM into your arrow shaft, and GO HUNT. There's no sense in having to play around with RAZOR sharp edges and cutting your hands all up.

If someone was determined to use mechanical broadheads The Grim Reapers are the only ones I would suggest.
Grim Reapers (I Think) are the industry leaders in mechanical broadhead technology.
But, I will always promote fixed Muzzy broadheads first, long before any other brand or mechanical broadhead.

I started out hunting with mechanical broadheads and have killed a few deer with them. Two years ago I switched to Muzzy fixed blades and dont see myself switching to mechanicals again.

The only negative I have is that the Muzzy practice heards tear up my practice target. My first deer with the Muzzys, two years ago, was my first Archery deer that I saw drop, only going 10 yards. (It was a center heart hit). The fixed blades just give me a better feeling and more confidence, plus they are cheaper to maintain and reuse and easier to work with.

I just haven't seen any compelling reason to try Rages or any mechanical broadhead for that matter. if you practice, and hit what you aim at where you aim at it. there is nothing a Rage offers that any other fixed blade broadhead doesn't deliver. blood trails dont matter if you drop them 10 yds from where you hit them and entry wounds dont mean anything if you don't hit vitals. Ill take a muzzy with a cutting dia of 1/2" and drop a deer. fact is 1/2" or 1 7/8" does the same thing on a heart/lung shot.
