    If I still had any in one piece I would be glad to demonstrate that on film.

    You probably shot in the hindquarters and the the blades snaping off is just a poor excuse for a bad shot.

    Very true. Couldn't have said it better myself.

    I'm using the Helix 125 gr in hopes of getting my first elk this year.

    It's flying great out to 80 yards. But will be comfortable with 60 and under.

    I prefer mechanicals over fixed heads (rage 2 blade), mainly because I value accuracy over indestructibleness. It's harder to be accurate with fixed blades if you end up having to shoot over 50 yrds. If I knew i was always going to shoot 40 yards or less then i would go fixed blade, but thats not reality. As much tuning as I do, mechanicals still fly better. In my opinion an inch or two difference at 50 yards makes a difference, especially when you add in all the other variables than can cause you to be off.

    I've never had a mechanical not open up. I have had blades bend because I hit a rib. Not ideal, but if accurate and you hit him in the right place that's just fine. A well placed half a 2 inch blade is better than a slightly off fixed in my opinion.

    Anything is possible but the guy who said he's double lunged a doe and shot two coyotes and didn't have a blood trial must not have been using Rage or he had bad shot placement. I've shot both and it's always a bloody mess. Entrance and exit wounds look like they animal was hit with an axe.
