Rage 3-Blade Expandable Mechanical Broadheads
Piece of pure JUNK
These are the worst broadheads I have ever shot. For the price, they should be rather durable. However, not a single Rage broadhead I have shot has ever survived more than one shot on a whitetail. The blades seem to be made of inferior metal as they tend to bend, deform, and break upon impact--IF they even deploy. I shot 3 deer with these broadheads, and 2 of the deer were never recovered after having blades break off inside the deer. The broadhead also has many grooves and spots where dirt will become hopelessly trapped inside the broadhead if it passes through the animal you are shooting at. I have since switched to the NAP Thunderhead fixed-blade, and I have now shot 3 deer with the same broadhead, and I have only had to replace one blade. That was only because the arrow hit a rock after passing through the deer. While the Rage broadheads are accurate when target shooting, real-life performance is horrible. Don't spend $40 on 3 of these things. Save your money and get Thunderheads -- or if you must have mechanical, use Spitfires! Either of those will serve you much better than this cheap junk.

I have always used the same Muzzy 3 blade and i finally figured id give something else a try. I tuned my Carbon Knight at #65 at 10, 20, and 30 yards with field points. slapped these practice blades on and BOOM. I only had to make one adjustment at 30 yds. I never shoot anything over 30 yds where i live due to the trees where i live. I was curious so i set up my final sight pin at 50yds just to see how these would handle and was not dissapointed. I still wouldn't feel comfortable taking a deer at anything over 30yds but these things are sweet. I haven't got them out in the stand yet so i cant comment on the damage these do yet but if they do anywhere near what my old muzzys do i don't see myself switching for a long time.

Try something more reliable
Prior to shooting these you better make sure the blades are closed. I have shot these on 3 deer now. Two I recovered. The last one only one blade opened up. Then it jammed the other two from opening. After I followed a 700 yrd blood trail I could not find any more blood. Lost that deer. When they work they work great. My first deer with them didn't go 30 yrds. There was so much blood I could not walk on the trail. So I surely can't give them 5 stars or 1 star, kind of in the middle. Try the two blades I hear they work better.

These broadheads are awesome! I've shot several deer with them and have had no trouble tracking any of them. Quick, clean kills. Every deer I've shot with them has gone down in under a hundred yards. The latest is a mid 120's class mature 9 point that was quartering away. The arrow entered on his left back rib and exited at the right front shoulder. It hit both lungs and the heart. He was down at about 70 yards. I won't use anything else!
