Rage X-treme Expandable Broadheads
Best Broadhead on the Market
I shoot a Mathews creed that shoots 279 fps and draw weight is about 55 lbs and I have absolutely no trouble with these broad heads like previous reviews have stated. I've killed many of deer with these broad heads even with some bad shots. Most of my deer ran less than 100 yards and I could see the blood trail from the stand with the naked eye. I will never use another broad head and would recommend to everybody.

I've used these out of my compound, my wife's crossbow, and my son's compound. Mine and my son's compounds are 70 lbs and wife's crossbow is 160 lbs. I've seen reviews about insufficient penatration below 60 lbs. Cannot rebut or confirm this. Penatration at ranges out to 50 yards have been no problem for me. Although, I've only had pass throughs at ranges inside of 40. Field point accuracy and awesome entry/exit wounds. Although blood trails are rediculously visible (like something out of a horror movie) I've never had to trail a deer since using Rage. None have made it out of my sight before crashing. I see a lot of negative reviews that claim "perfect" shots and no blood trails or little blood. Let's see the video footage of that. I started shooting Rage in 2007. 7 years from 3 different midwest states and 35 deer later I have the same results. Shot placement people. Quit making excuses and blaming your equipment.
If you're thinking of slamming this claiming we're shooting "little southern" deer, here's the proof in the pudding. The pic of my son is a 400+ lbs northern whitetail. He actually made what should have been a bad shot due to his freaking over the size of the buck. But as you can see he got a clean pass through at 35 yards slicing both femoral arteries, The buck bled out and crashed within sight.

this is a ok broadhead but only if you shoot 65 pounds and above or else you wont get a pass-through.

Awesome broad head
Over the past few years I have been experimenting with different broad heads. I started with the original rage 2 blades, but never liked the rubber bands. Then I went to the g5 t3 broad heads. I killed a doe with them but no blood trail whatsoever on a double lung shot( good thing she died in sight.) Then they came out with the rage extremes. They had what I was looking for. A big nasty mechanical, wide cut, and no o-rings. I used them for the first time this year and took a doe with them. I was on public land so walking was a must. In my quiver was 3 extremes and 2 original rages. After going through some tall brush the originals were usually opened, but not the extremes. The shot was 20 yds broadside (lucky me - when does that ever happen.) It was a double lung with complete pass through, she ran 15 yds and was dead within about 5 seconds. Awesome blood trail! I recovered my arrow, washed it off, sharpened the blades, rotated the shock collar, and placed it back in the quiver. I'm done trying different broad heads.
