Slick Tricks are sharper out of the box and easier to re sharpen then T-locks. Slick tricks also fly better out of my setup.
What Ive seen with the rage is guy love them or hate them I hate them for deer but did good on a few turkeys
I've been shooting the shuttles for the last several years. They fly well and have done the job on whitetails.
I'm a slick trick fan.
Slick Trick Magnums are my choice they are super sharp, easy to tune and I don't have to worry about them deploying while stalking, which has happened to me, and are relatively inexpensive to buy. I've tried other broad heads and mechanicals and the ST is simple and reliable. The last deer I killed was a pass thru at 30 yds I could believe the damage it caused or the size of the entry and exit holes, went through him like butter and I never found the arrow. I just ordered some more but they are Deep 6. For me they work and if it's not broke it doesn't need fixing.
My two cents
I've used a lot of BHs including several mechanicals.
As I have gotten older I have leaned more toward the KISS concept.
S (fill in for yourself, lets be PC and say "silly")
(apparently Umpqua and I have more in common than first names)
Sure there are a lot of great new BHs on the market that are great.
I pretty much use Montech G5s or Thunderheads for everything but turkey.
Just proven heads with little to go wrong.

I have read several posts that claim the Shuttle T locks are not sharp enough. I was going to try these for Elk , Deer and Bear this year. You would think that at $39.99 for three heads they would come razor sharp.
