    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.

    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?

    I shoot a three blade and would not add another blade for anything personally, If anything go to a tight expandable of some sort. I have seen 4 blades and even found a few and they all plane WAY worse than any three blade i have shot... But hey something i hate might be someone elses favorite thing!

    I like the hole the 4blade leaves but they are sure difficult to tune for some reason. They have to spin perfectly on the shaft, nocks perfectly rotated, then the big issue of making sure my bow is perfectly tuned. I shoot a fixed micro tune rest and every time I shoot my MX4s I end up making some slight adjustments. I haven't shot the 4blade slick tricks but would like to compare between the MX4s.

    Pretty much the same as a field point...
