Rage Crossbow X Broadheads
used these for deer and turkey with devastating effects, the last buck I shot at 45yd and he went another 40yd, from my stand I could see the entire blood trail from impact all the way to where he dropped.

Opens when shot!
I have used Rage broad heads in the past out of my compound bow with great success. However, I purchased a new Excalibur Crossbow 380 Matrix that shoots 380 feet per second. I was told to buy the Rage Crossbow x model with the shock collars to handle the force of the new bow being shot. I was told the shock collars would keep the broad head from opening until impact with the intended target. Well, A nice 8 point walked up to 23 yards just before dark in Tennessee. I had prop on my deer stand. When I squeezed the shot; I heard a new and strange sound. The deer simple trotted away 20 yards and stood there for over a minute. It then just walked away. What happened? The Rage opened when I pulled the trigger. The blade hit the stirrup as the bolt was still on the string. This caused the bolt to break in 4 places. I showed this to a local archery professional he said that he sees this all the time. Bottom line, you cannot shoot a Rage in an Excalibur 380 or any of the other hard shooting crossbow. He suggested the Grim Reaper Crossbow models. I switched and killed a nice 9 point in Kansas with my new bow. I contacted Rage to let them know and they did not seem concerned. They simply instructed me to install the shock collar correctly per the instructions. The plastic shock collar cannot be trusted. I will still shoot Rage out of my compound. But, I will never shoot another Rage out of a crossbow!

I purchased these this season after I ruined last years heads by shooting them into a target. These were supplied with a practice broad head. The practice head flew as true as a field tip. After missing a quality whitetail, I shot a hunting head into my target to check accuracy, they flew 8" low and 4" to the right. After that shot I checked the practice head and once again it flew true. Horrible. The screw in two of the heads also vibrated out some how and the blades fell out while in quiver. I will never purchase rage heads again and I caution every other hunter out there.

Bought them 4 weeks ago our season opened 2 weeks ago. I' ve take a hog and 6pt. Have never seen a broadhead do the damage and leave a blood trail from the point of impact, looks like you where pouring it out of a bucket.....The hog was broadside at 30 yds drop after 20, the buck was 18 yds 1/4 away ran 40 and folded up. They shoot great in my Parker c-bow. Last year used a fix blade broadhead did the job but was not happy with blood trail. I'll never shoot anything else if they keep dropping em like this.
