G5 Outdoors T3 Expandable Mechanical Broadheads
I've been using rage for years and bought some t3's the other day. You can instantly tell the difference in sharpness and thickness. Great broad head

If you don't try these you are nuts
I shot a 9 point buck with these broad heads at about 40 yards. I waited about 20 minutes and when I seen where the blood start it was about 4 inches wide for about 75 yards. He was smoked.

Better than Rage
I used these on my Hoyt bow. I have a 27" draw, and my draw is at 63 pounds. I shoot Gold Tip 5575. My speed is around 270 fps.
I tried the Rage in the past and did not like them. The retention clip on the Rage would come off in the field and allow the blades to expand in the rest. A friend recommended these. Upon receiving them, I noticed they seemed to be built a lot stronger then the Rage. They have a solid tip (unlike the Rage) that I trust would smash bones if it had to.
In 2013, I drew a coveted archery only tag for mule deer in Northern California. I was hunting the high Sierra mountains on a cool day in August. As I came around a tree, I found myself 33 yards from a 4x3 that was quartering toward me. I could see very clearly where the point of his shoulder was. I put the arrow in between his throat and shoulder. I became uncomfortable as he ran away, because I could see about 1 foot of arrow sticking out of him. My fears were eased when I found the blood trail. He had bounded away, and every time his feet hit the ground, blood would spray a 10-14 inch ring on the leaves. I found him laying face up within 100 yards of where I had stuck him. The arrow was gone, but there was a 2 inch hole where the arrow had hit. While I was processing him, I found 17 inches of arrow had broken off inside of his chest cavity. The broadhead was still in good condition and could probably even be re-used. I had to process him in the field so I did not get a good wait on him, but I would say he was probably 180 plus pounds.
P.S. It should be noted I had accidentally ordered the crossbow broadheads. When I notice this, I called G5 and asked what the difference was. I was told the broadheads are exactly the same, with the difference being the retention clips. Crossbow retention clips are stronger to ensure they don't expand when launched. The retention clips do not effect the broadheads ability to expand when entering the target. If the price and availability are the same, I will only order crossbow broadheads. When I am stalking, I have an arrow nocked. Sometimes that arrow gets caught on brush, leaves, grass, etc. The stronger retention clips would help keep everything in place until entering the target. As far as mechanicals go, I think these are the only ones I will ever use.

best bang for the buck
these broad heads deliver what they offer. They have excellent penetration, a wide entry and fly just like your practice tips. They blades are easy to replace, with NO "O"rings. I have a hard time listening to archers who whine about replacing blades/clips after a shot. The cost is minimal and if you get a shot at a deer , you should consider yourself fortunate. If you mess up a shot, do not blame it on this broad head. Practice more. I recommend this broad head to all my hunting buddies. Go get'em.
