Rage X-treme Expandable Broadheads
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.

Rage X-treme Expandable Broadhead Review
The Rage Extreme is a well crafted and extremely accurate broadhead. I liked it's cutting performance very much. Only downside could also be considered as an asset in that the blades will not expand at draw-weights below 60-lbs. I tested that out and was surprised as to how accurate that statement is. That said, certain bow hunters (like my two young boys) will not be able to use it.

I have been using Rage broadheads since they came out and I have yet to lose a deer. Key is PATIENCE and SHOT PLACEMENT! The Rage Broadheads are the BEST EXPANDABLES PERIOD!! They addressed the O-ring issue and the shock collar is AWESOME.
I had a doe come in on Sept. 12 at 20 yards. She turned broadside and quartered away and I let the Rage Extreme fly. When the broadhead hit her, she made a noise like a bear growling and took off. She made it about 40 yards and piled up. Complete pass thru. She was in the middle of eating corn and the broadhead opened her up so bad that it pushed corn ot of the exit hole. These broadheads are Amazing!

Giant Exit Hole
Recently shot a Blacktail with a Rage Extreme. First animal I had shot with this broadhead. It was a 23 yard quartering away complete pass through shot. Buck ran not even 50 yards. Blood trail was huge and very easy to follow. Could not believe the size of the exit hole. Great Broadheads. One more thing, the shock collars are so nice. Don't have to worry about hitting brush and having the rubber Oring break like on the regular Rages!
