There is no part of a deers body that a Muzzy won't go through. Most of my bow kills have come from Muzzys, but I have tried (aka killed with) a lot of others as well. Grim Reapers are good, Steelheads are good, most Crimson Talons are marginal, Thunderheads are good, Rockey Mtn Revolutions (not made anymore) were good, NAP Nitrons are good, most Steel Force fly bad, Slick Tricks are awesome.

they are sharp from the factory! my friend has a 2in long cut on his hand from slipping when he was putting them on his arrows!

I'm really tempted to try the Rage 2 blades. I've seen a couple carcasses that look like someone took a meat cleaver to. Unfortunately I'm broke.

I bought a bunch of muzzy 3 blades years ago and they havent let me down. 3 animals(all whitetails), a combined 40 yards of tracking. All dead within seconds of being shot. IMO the broadhead is one of the least important parts of th set up. Its all about energy and shot placement. If you get that arrow moving with enough energy and it hits the right spot it will push any broadhead into the boiler room. You can talk entry/exit wounds and wound channels all you want, all that matters is leaky lungs. You can follow a great blood trail for miles and not find the anmial, id rather be confident that I hit vitals and have little/no blood to follow.

rage 2 blade hands down one of the best heads on the market. killed seven deer so far this season and they are working great as they did on the five i killed with them last season. no comparison on the blood trails between the rage and the muzzys i did shoot.

Any broadhead will put a deer down, and any broad head you can loose deer with. You can kill a deer with a field tip with a properly placed shot. What I have seen with the rages is that you need a solid broadside shot. If you hit shoulder, it wont go in more than an inch. I have always shot muzzy's, they do not leave the most gaping wounds, but they fly just like my field tips, and can break one shoulder. Its a fact that arrows dont like shoulders. My buddy shoots the grim reapers, the whitetail specials (2" cut). He shot a doe quartering away, and broke something like 9 ribs on the deer. A lot of people I know are switching to the grimp reapers this year, and A lot of people are going back to muzzy's from rages.

I did the same thing. Spent over $40 for the Rage and was not impressed. I am a big fan of entry AND DRAIN holes. I strong fixed blade like G5 and Muzzy will do the trick everytime. I can't count the deer that I have killed and reused that arrow because it is in and out before they knew what happened.......the Rage do not get the same ratio of pass thru and that causes a lot of broken arrows. Worthless used Rage and a $10 arrow in the trash = wasted $25.

same here. my arrow last year after my pass through got stuck 4inches in the gound with my muzzy 4 blades, and the deer feel 35ish yards from where it was shot.

my friend last week shot a nice buck (with a rage) on his land in Iowa, low and be hold it got away! he jumped it up 3 hours later tracking it and it ran away with out leaving a blood trail!

Slick trick. Hands down. No discussion. Done.

I have NEVER had a problem with slick tricks. They fly awesome and are the most durable broadheads I have ever used. I have put them through bone, sharpened the blades, and made a pass-through on the next deer i shot. The steel ferrul is the best thing to come onto the market with broadheads as far as I'm concerned...

I have a few slick tricks laying around. I loved how they flew just could never bring myself to replace the muzzy. They certianly have a very faithful following. When I think about those massive shoulderblades on a 230 pound WI buck I just feel a lot better leading with that chisel point on the muzzy than trying to slice bone. I'd rather break it into pieces and let the blades follow into the soft stuff.

After looking at a trial cam pic of a 160 class ten pointer that my buddy shot at I will never shoot a rage. He said "you see that little ruffle on his shoulder? Thats where my broadhead bounced off of him." I told him if that had been a muzzy he'd be showing me a carcass right now. The rage is deavastating if your shooting at jelly. Deer arent made of jelly.

I love my rage 3 blades. They work wonders on big muleys, if only they would stay closed in the quiver.... Thats the only thing that drives me nuts. Otherwise they are deadly on anything.

I shoot the rage two blade 40 KE. They are 1.5" rather than 2" but identical in performance. I practice a lot in the off seasson and have my bow cranked down to 60 lbs. 262 through the crony. Plenty fast to do the job. But the 40 KE require less energy AND most importantly they are $15 cheaper. Fly just like a field point every time. All I will buy from now on.

G5 Montecs. Strongest broadhead built, you dont have to worry about a blade coming off and slicing you open while you're dressing your animal.
