Rated 4 out of 5 by bake2 40 KE replacement blades suck This is my first year hunting with a bow, and I missed 3 shots out of a treestand @3 ft higher than I was used to shooting from. So I had to replace those blades in my broadheads. Apparently Rage changed their design on the 40 KE broadheads. Im not sure which way it changed, but I have 3 of each design. The screw in blades were a snap to change out. But I also had to change 2 that had the knurled pin that holds in the 2 main blades. This took forever to get the old pins out and the new ones in. And my broadhead body ended up scaped up due to using a hammer to replace these pins, as directed. Will look for screw only type from now on or change brand. My husband has always had good success with rage broadheads so thats why I use them.His have always had the screws for replacing blades. January 5, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by godawgs Waste of Money I have been an avid bowhunter for seven years now and have used a wide variety of broadheads in that time period. This year, the new RAGE products have been highly talked about and marketed well throughout all outdoor stores, included my local archery shop. However, THESE ARE A WASTE OF MONEY. This year, out of the six deer to date I've harvested, half of them did not bleed out quickly. I expect a high quality product for a high price tag. All of my shots have been heart and lung shots, yet these broadheads fail to perform well. This has never been an issue for me and has really started to take the fun out of the hunt when I'm worried about injuring deer. I will be going back to my G5 broadheads and will be getting my money back for the RAGE. December 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by GunnerDown Rage = DEATH My first bow kill with the Rage 40KE!!!! It was a button buck and he dropped like a ROCK, he was around 20 yards and i could not got a better shot. The Rage cut through his heart,lung and then hit the top of his shine and he was done...Thier was two of them and his buddy came back to see what was wrong and i forgot my rangefinder back at the house so i guested on the second one and missed him and shot high. It's ok because i got my first deer with a bow/Rage and im HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY.Overall im very pleased with the Rage 40KE and im going back to see if i can get his brother or one of his sister this weekend!!!!!!!Good luck to all the bow hunters and for the people thats just gettin started like me go get some RAGE>>>>>DEATH October 24, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by MADUSA A picturre is worth a thousand words! For those of you who shoot with a short draw and low lbs. This is one sweet broad head. I shoot a Mathews ZX7 Extreme 26" draw and 60lbs. and they go through ribs like butter. Notice in picture that the blade is what cuts the rib and not the point. Blood trail even a blind man can see.

A:Yes I would not shoot these blades. You would be better off using a fixed blade instead of a mechanical.
Details:what is the difference between this one and the rage 2 blade???
A:Rage 2 blade = 2" cut, 90degree blade angle
Rage 40ke = 1.5" cut, 80 degree blade angle
Range 40ke are designed for better penetration for either lighter weight shooters, or larger game that demand better penetration.
A:this broadhead opens up with only 40 pounds of K.E
A:Shallower blade angle. The blades are less perpendicular to the arrow shaft. Theoretically this gives better penetration on any given shot regardless of energy (hence the "low kinetic energy" claim) at the sacrifice of overall cuttin diameter (1.5" vs. 2")

A:I really can't see any difference between the two broadheads
A:Yep! I switch between 1.5" and 2" blades depending on my game. 1.5" for elk out of my 60lb bow
A:they can fit but will be VERY loose and should not be used for hunting

A:no the KE's have a thicker blades.
A:Yes, But you might want to just buy new broad heads instead of replacing the blades. The new design has a pin instead of a screw holding the blades in the broad head. When driving the pin out (per the instructions) you run the risk of bending the broad head. This makes flight and blade deployment questionable and unreliable. I just changed mine and now have 60 bucks tied up and now have to buy something else.
Best of Luck
Details:One of my broadheads got kind of dull after shooting through two deer and into the ground after a pass through. Just wondering can u sharpen these or just buy new replacement blades?
A:I have had numerous buddy's sharpen them with great success. Although the manufacturer might suggest replacement blades.
A:I change out my blades after every shot. I change my o-rings before every hunt. Why risk it?
A:u can sharpen it with a knife sharpener if u need to.
A:I had the same idea - in my experience, ethically better to buy replacement blades. Also the blades are hard to hold and get the right angle to effectively sharpen.
