RobertSmith I use traditional bows and my favorite head is a Magnus 2 blade.

Hunting Man After seeing first hand Rage 3-blades fall apart on several deer from family and friends I swore off mechanicals, however, the 2-blade Rage heads seem to have a good following. I'm a Muzzy backer as I've never had any kind of failure on them for many years of use.

You just put all mechanicals as Failing way to often & that is purely not true
your comment, which I underlined, is exactly what we must emphasize when someone wants advice on which Broadheads we would recommend,
It doesn't do the hunter any good if we don't explain their options then let them decicde which Broadhead they would prefer to use.
Now I Agree, technology has come a long way and some folks are having good luck with mechanicals,
but here's another example from a 2012 mechanical broadhead failure Video which shows even with the best technology and highest quality control standards, "mechanical faIlures" still occur.
I'm not bashing mechanicals, I'm really not, some folks are head over heels in love with them, I just happen to be a Pessimistic on mechanical broadheads...
(Pessimistic, Adj. pessimistic - expecting the worst possible outcome) lol

Hunting Man What old guys? I just know from experience not to shoot the Rage 3-blades. I'm sure there are great mechanical broadheads out there and when they work they make huge holes.

spiker Well since I already hijacked the thread I may as well continue.For ole timers like Bruce & Hm (with all due respect) the designs of early mechanicals were horrible with a failure rate of about 50%.Now of course with technology the advancements are many and they are a viable option.With that said I believe if can get your bow to tune with a fixed blade it is the best option.I like a good sturdy one piece fixed head no chance for failure.IMHO
