Default Rage Trypan

Have you guys heard about these new Rage heads yet? Rage Trypan. Titanium heads with a new collar and new blade design.

Looks just like a hypodermic with a different collar and a funky backside of the blade.
I'm probably missing something.

Heads are titanium and blades seem to be a little longer. Hopefully the blades are thicker too

I like the sounds of these, in for some more info. Ragin might even like these too since they are titanium


Maybe it's just me but they look longer than the hypo

I don't see the point in the blade design, it's not the cutting edge so why "serrate" it

I would guess they fold out if the broadhead does not go through.

Thicker, longer blades so notches are just to lose weight. Don't hurt "looks" either.

The price on these things is starting to get just plain laughable. They should start selling them in single packs. $50!!!!!

I wish they would of kept the same length and thickened the blade. Seems like a trade off

They have a better blade angle when they open for increased penetration and the blades are thicker than Hypodermics. 39 thick blades.

I would rather them have even a steeper blade angle and go with 1 3/4 inch cutting diameter.

Too bad they did rebuild a completely new style of swhackers that looks nothing like a swhacker

I shot a pig with a rage hypo with dull and bent blades. Passthrough. Pig ran 50 yards and piled up. I'm sure the Trypan might perform similar.

Agreed. Swhacker is by far my favorite mechanical.

Yup. Stick with what you like. I've shot 32 pigs this year with 6 different heads and everyone of them I put a good shot on, died in under 100 yards.

Buddy just smoked this axis with them. Arrow buried in the off side shoulder and the buck didn't go 50 yards. Ferrule was no worse for the wear and the blades held up well.
