So my brother and I decided to use rage broadheads this year- from our experience these things just dont work... I shot at a buck last weekend ( missed) and when I pulled my arrow out of the ground I noticed that the blades never opened up.. I figured it was because the dirt was so dense and didnt think to much of it. My brother shot a nice doe this morning with his ( rage broadheads) and it broke off in the deer and never opened up either. He had to take a second shot to stop it from trying to get up and that one didnt open up either.!! A guy at a local store said that I must need my bow tuned up and that you could shoot these things through a sheet of paper and they will open up, Did I just happen to get a bad box of broadheads or are you guys seeing the same thing.???? Please give me your feedback... thanks.!
My friend shot a doe a week ago in NW WI. The head did not hit any heavy bone, but the front cutting blade was folded over, and one of the main blades was bent 90 degrees to the side. It did do a number on the deer, and she only went 60 yards.
Here is a picture of the heart.... ****caution- Graphic!****
all have gone down from 1 yard to 50 yards [:D]
I have carried them in My quiver but they always seem to flop around loosley so I dont have confidence in them staying closed while I shoot. I just Grim Reeper My deer to death !
they are a pain in the * about opening up in the quiver but I solved that my putting a rubberband that my daughter uses with her braces [}:)][:D] works perfect
I use the 2 blade rages an love them never had any problem with them they fly the exact same as my field tips i have also used slick tricks an Imo Rages are better.
I used the rage and never had a complete pass threw, lost a lot of arrows from the deer falling on them and breaking them. Switched to the slick trick started getting passthrews. in fact every one has beena pass threw since. that sold me. Both heads kill'em just as dead as the other tho.
