After all this talk, I went out and bought the two blade Rage's as well. I wanted to compare them to the Muzzy's I just bought this year. I'm with you on the flight! They are the best mechanicals I have ever shot. Even some mechanicals fly a little off, but not these. I'll save my Muzzy's for my recurve. I can't wait to hear and see some testimonials.

Allow me to show you what these blades do! I really wish I could have put a quarter or fifty cent piece near the wound. I got this doe the first day. She ran about 60 yards, did circles for what I believe to be another 20 and fell right over! Love my rage.... got the ones that don't need to be recalled!

They are very accurate as well! My practice tips fly so true! My friend said his practice tips did not fly well so he gave me a hunting tip that are two blades. He bet my 20 bucks that I could not hit the heart with the real one! Let's just say that I am 20 bucks rich right now! I won't use another blade. Literally, I am hunting with the same blade I killed my first doe!

I'm getting the two blade’s for my dad and brother-in-law for Christmas. I spined the buck in NY. Even though I was in a tree stand, the buck was still uphill. Tip split the backbone like a chisel and the lower blade was long enough to take out a lung. It was all over in less than 20 seconds. I wouldn't reuse that one but it wasn't chipped or bent. The buck I shot in MD was perfect 20 yard pass through with the arrow sticking into the ground. I replaced the o-ring and will use it for a back-up, though it looks perfectly new.
I shot the rage three blades this year only because I got a late start on buying my broadheads. Definitely wanted the two blades. I shot an 8 point this year with them. Had blood everywhere but I didn't find the deer. I didn't have a pass through. Must have clipped the shoulder a little bit. The broadhead made up for a bad shot with the amount of blood.

I shoot a Fred Bear TRX @65lbs. Last season I bought the three blade rages and was more then happy with their flight pattern in practice but was disappointed with field performance. I have yet to have all three blades open on impact. Dropped 2 does with them last year, both were slightly quartering away shots at 20+/-yards, which might be why, and had 2 blades expand on the first deer and only 1 blade expand on the second, neither were clean pass throughs. The second doe ran about 200yrds which luckily is the furthest I've ever had to track a deer so far. Don't get me wrong they still got the job done but I would really like to see all the blades open!!!
what is the word on these rage heads, are they any good if so, Which is better two blades or Three
I like those Rage broadheads alot my son used them last year the 2 blade and the entry & exit hole was unimaginable. A double lung hit and the buck went 25 yards.......I use them now and they shot very well in practi
