the only mechanical I'm sold on is the Rage 2 blade.

I would say Most fixed blades will do the job Most of the time.

I would say Most mechanicals will not.

to each their own, I'm surprised so many bowhunters are constantly changing their setups, I understand wanting to constantly improve but why chance what works? or why fix what's not broken?

I think most guys would be better off getting to know their "older" equipment precisely than every year trying a new broadhead etc...

I use to shoot muzzy's 3 blade 100gr, I now only shoot rage 2 blade, if I ever go back to a fixed broadhead I'll probably shoot what my dad only shoots from day 1 his whole bowhunting career, NAP razorbak 100gr, 2blade w/2 bleeder blades w/rotating technology cut on contact.
