After missing a 10 pt's heart by fractions, I am going with a beastie cut radius- Swhacker(2+''). And I'll probably put some early season does down with Hoyt's Brutes.

I was kinda interested in the rage two blade head.I just personally have not been been much of a mech head shooter except for last year shot the brutes(sidewinders) did a great job for me.That was a nice hole in deer did you get a pass thru?If you didn't I understand shoulder is tough how much penetration did ya get.Was the broad head in good shape after wards not bent or nothing.In your opion do you think there worth the money.

It did pass thru but I never found the broadhead because the arrow broke. I only found the other half with the fletchings covered in blood. Even with the bad placement the deer only ran 50 yds and piled up. They are a little pricey but they performed as advertised.

I used the Rage 2 blade 100gr this year and I will continue to use them. I like them better than the spitfires from the last 2 years and muzzys from years past. Great choice in heads. I was actually get a bigger entrance than exit. Two shots, two pass thrus and all kinda damage. Photo of entrance.

No had a bad issue with desease deer last couple years cant be to safe but havent found anything wrong with them in our area. Plus last year I had to search a gut pile to find my wedding ring. ;D

I ended up shooting magnum stingers at a pig who died soon...and a tree(went through my friends old foam backstop). It was the same head and it still looks awsome, even after ripping it out of an oak tree. That 1 head is still putting my arrows on spot at 35 yards.

As for rages, I just saw a pic of a doe shot in this county which was quartering away. It looked like somebody had hit the thing with a spear! 7'' entrance wound with 3'' exit! AMAZING proof....if they open.

I forgot, they got that desease up your way. I aint never wore any gloves to cut up my deer. And am glad we dont have them deseases down here.

I always wear gloves messing with deer because lyme scares me. Hogs always get arm-length dish gloves to protect against possible nicks and brucellosis. I took great solace in being able to quickly go through a heap of birds with the added dexterity of gloveless hands... but now even that is changing. Apparently you can get west nile directly from contacting blood of infected ducks and snipe! So now i gotta use gloves to butcher everything(except fish...that would be pretty hard with those slippery things)

Hello,I'm new here,anyway,I always used THUNDERHEADS(100grain)but then I wanted to try the RAGE.
First I used the 2 blade and like their flight,the 3 blade shoot well.I love the practice tip they supply with each pack.
With the THUNDER HEADS I would have 2 adjust my sights every pre-season
will stick with the 2 blade RAGE for sure.
GOOD LUCK,MAY U'R FREEZER NEVER FILL WITH FROST,AND MAY U'R RUT BE LONG AND HARD,LOL

Hey can anyone give me some advice on mechanical broad heads, just got a new bow, and am changing everything i am used to, can I say moving into the 21st century of bowhunting, I have always shot fixed blade and aluminium arrows, am switching to carbons and mechanical. I have heard alot of both good and bad things about Rage mechanicals, and I like how they deploy backwards for the quickest opening and am leaning toward the 2 blade for the sheer cut dia. 2", thats huge, and I always pass thru. any thoughts on what you shoot and why they are good, or have you shot the rage 2 blades? how close are they to practice points, any insite would be fantastic???
Title: Re: broadheads
Post by: bighoytman on March 23, 2009, 11:00:17 PM
Well The gators are basic same thing as rage just better made2 inch cut only problem is not being made any more but still alot of them around.The grim  reaper is a great mech also.If your looking for a good cheap well made mech for about 12.50 a pack with 1 1/2 cut Pse brute.The Rage seem to be a very expensive flimsy made broad head.The three blade rage seems alittle better made but a smaller cut.I shot the brutes a year or so back made a couple post on them even posted some pics.

I have and still shoot rage 2 blades and like them very much. They leave a hell of a hole and even on bad shots cause alot of bleeding. See the pic on the bottom of page 1 of this post. O0

Since I shoot traditional gear I only use Magnus. No complaints from the deer, hogs and turkey yet.

BTW......

I think it's smart to take precautions when dressing any game these days. I don't wear gloves but I know I should. I've been told by friends in south Georgia and Florida that the hogs they're taking all to often are not in the best of shape, no telling what they could be carrying around?

I started back in 1995 with 4 blade 90 grain Muzzy's. Switched to 3 blade 100 grain Muzzy's and was very pleased and still am. Shot Wasp Jak-hammers 100 grain mechanical's for 2 years really just to see and was very pleased as well. I have been out of bowhunting for 3 years and I am getting back into it, but my new arrows just won't give me a quarter size group with my Muzzy's so after some trusted friends advice, I will be slinging Rage 2 blades this coming Sept.

I haven't decided yet what I'll be shooting this fall. :-\  It will either be 150 gr. Excalibur Boltcutters (3 blade fixed) or 100 gr. Excalibur X-ACT 3 blade expandables.  I know the expandables will give a better group (and are lighter), but I don't know if I want to take the chance on them not expanding. >:(
Title: Re: broadheads
Post by: BigStrutter on June 14, 2009, 10:20:39 PM
BC, with a crossbow like yours shooting that fast, you will shoot what IT likes!! ;D  My dad tried rocket expandable's in his and the suckers opened in flight. Then he read where they were not supposed to be shot out of anything over 300 fps. Now he shoots 3 blade Muzzy's in 100 grain.

Post by: Big58cal on June 15, 2009, 10:52:44 AM
Yeah, I had thought about that.  I've had bad experiences with expandables, so I've always stuck with fixed blade heads. O0

When expandables first came out, I tried shooting the PunchCutters.  I couldn't get them to pattern worth a crap! >:(  Finally figured out that they were opening up slightly just as soon as I released the arrow, with the blades hitting the riser on the bow.  That by itself is bad, but when I got to looking, they were missing my hand by about 1/4"! :shock:  That was my last time of trying expandables. ;D

I used a RAGE 2 blade and hit the throat at 40-50 yards they are VERY accurate and it made a wound so big I could fit my fist inside yes the whole thing pretty kool but if it had a bone crushing kinda tip like the muzzy mx series does would be better.

Wait, you guys throw 1" groups?  At how far out?
I might be able to get 1" groups...at 5 yards. :-\

Ive shot Muzzy 100gr 4 blade for years. Im in the process of switching to 100gr Viper Venoms, same maker as the Crimson Talons. In my stick bows Zwickey's, Bear Super Razorheads etc. Ive used just about all of the cut on contact designs in 2 blade, they're all good. use to make my own when I had time and no money. Now I got a little money but no time.
