    Ramcats for me. They do the job handily every time. I will not be switching. They fly as good as anything out there to.

    I got poor penetration on a Muley with the 100 grain 2 blade. Scared me enough that I switched before my elk hunt that year.

    I've shot several whitetail with them, they have all passed through & buried in the ground anywhere from 20 - 47 yards. My buddy shot a 5X5 bull elk last year at 70 yards. It did not pass completely through but it penetrated both lungs. However I do replace the blades after I shoot one. The pressed aluminum is soft, I don't trust sharpening them.

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.
    I'm pretty quick to admit when I'm wrong, or have made a bad shot.... But, the rage broadheads I ran through the doe and the two coyotes were about as perfect as you can get... After I shot the doe, I even said to myself "She'll be done within 75 yards, it's early, I'll keep hunting." The shots on both coyotes and the doe were all within 15 yards, it was pretty easy to see where the arrow went in, and was going out.
    A lot of guys have had success with the rages, I'm just not one of them
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    I shot a bull with the rage at 40 yards and my arrow only went in about half way. The next year I used them again and shot a big bull at 20 yards in what looked like the sweet spot right behind the shoulder and the arrow only went in 4 inches. I saw the bull twice before he went into the trees and blood behind his shoulder looked good but the blood trail dried up and I couldnt find him. There was no damage to the broadhead so im not sure if I hit shoulder or what. I switched to heavier arrows and G5 T3 broadheads.

    I like G5's but over 30 yards I could not get them to group. They are tuff & will penetrate a cement block at 20 yards. Saw it first hand at a local archery shop.
