In my opinion, Rage heads are fantastic. The fly more accurately than a fixed head (a fact one cannot even begin to argue), and they provide plenty of "kill" for whitetail sized animals (I can't comment on larger game, because reduced penetration is a possibility with such a large cutting diameter, especially at distance). These threads always are riddled with posts about "I shot a deer in the shoulder with a mechanical and lost it...blah, blah blah." News flash, NO BROADHEAD, fixed or mechanical, will penetrate past the shoulder socket. A lost deer from a shoulder hit was not lost because of the broadhead, it was lost because of a poor shot. Own up. Don't make an excuse and blame it on equipment. It happens to everyone. I challange anyone that has blown through a shoulder socket or humerus (the BIG bone that runs from the shoulder socket to the elbow) and recovered a deer with an arrow to post pics. I'm guessing there won't be any takers. If I'm proven wrong, I will give credit where credit is due, and that is to the broadhead, not the hunter that made the poor shot. Now anyone that says rage heads will not penetrate ribs or other flimsy bone are talking out of their rear-ends. Shooting Rage heads and 62 lbs out of my hunting setup, I have had complete pass-throughs on no less than 6 whitetails over the past 3 years. I have only had 1 non pass-through, and that was the result of the arrow burying in the opposite shoulder socket. No biggie, the deer perished in sight. Here is a little proof that mechanicals can be pushed through bones: I made a shot on a 2.5 year old buck several years ago and hit him a little far forward. Had I been another inch or two forward, I would not have recovered this deer regardless of which broadhead I pummeled into his shoulder socket. I did clip the scapula however, and the broadhead blew through it and completely passed out the other side of the animal. Here is the typical wound channels I get with 2 blade Rage heads: Entry: Hide on exit: Hide off exit: Arrow path: (Notice the broadhead blew through the ribs?) Now I'm no Rage spokesperson, but I can attest to the fact that they work just fine and dandy with good shot placement. I can also attest that ANY OTHER BROADHEAD in the World will also work with good shot placement. Moral is, shoot what flys best out of your setup, and what you are the most confident with, because confidence kills.
