    4-Blade vs 3-Blade Broadheads? Which do you prefer?

    I shot 3-blade for years and now hunt with a 4-blade. Anyone went back and forth also. What are your experiences?

    I actually went to the 2 blade Rage and have had excellent results. i would post some pics but not sure how everyone would feel about that... It is educational... thoughts? Referring to showing the cutting diameter.

    It's a hunting forum, surely people wouldn't be too upset with a few entrance/exit wound photos?

    Thanks for starting this thread CNALDER. I am about to start testing out flight and accuracy for a 4 blade slick trick magnum against a three blade fixed of some sort, but not sure which one yet. I will post my results. Im really only concerned with accuracy at this point. With an accurate shot I believe it wont matter if its a three blade or a four blade; blood will flow.

    ok... Here they are. Sorry to offend anyone but this has to make a believer out of some. Here is what the Rage 2 blade has done for me. I know it's just deer and elk is a whole other discussion. Both shots were either quartering to or away but seriously unreal.

    I have real mixed reviews on the Rages.. I love the way they fly out of my bow, just like field points out to 50-60 yards, but I have NOT had the same experiences as you have Montana.. I have now shot a whitetail doe, a coyote and yesterday a turkey with Rages. I shot the whitetail first, at about 10 yards, right through both lungs. She left barely any blood, and I felt lucky to find her after 2 hours. The coyote was shot from about 15 yards, again right through both lungs. Zero blood, none at all. Didn't even find the dog.

    Yesterday, I smacked a tom, the arrow went in right at the base of the wing, and out at the other base. He ran about 75 yards and stood there for about 30 minutes before I got tired of him standing around. He couldnt move very quickly, and he certainly couldnt fly, so I ran him down, and fishined him of with another shot.

    All three of these shots were about as perfect as you can get, and I did recover 2 of the 3, but I don't feel like the head performed like it should. I can't in good faith shoot a Rage at anything again, not when I have a quiver full of Montecs... But, I felt like I had to give them one more chance to change my mind.

    Montana I was thinking of switching from g5 montecs to the 2 blade stingers because I hear they have great penetration and I shoot a slower bow with a short draw length. You definitely just solidified my decision. How do you they fly?

    Pretty much the same as a field point...

    Check out these websites. They test broadheads including penetration and durability.
