This thread was too fun. It was a Rage thread with Rage lovers and Rage haters. And nobody got too out of line. Maybe we can keep the future one like this.

I can attest to the effectiveness of this broadhead and so can the black bear I shot this past weekend. Bear was shot behind the shoulder and crashed within 20 yds. Three other hunters in camp also shot their bears with the Rage Extreme and no track job was longer than 50 yds. As with any other broadhead shot placement is critical. Keep in mind that these broadheads are designed for higher poundage bows. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1338531435.519559.jpg

Im workin on my own fixed blade design. Its fixed. I call it the 4.5 inch Whitetail Widamaker. Now if i can just get below 400 grains and get it to fly at speeds over 200fps i'll really have somethin!
You using some cutco steak knives for blades??

I know, it seems like I'm stirrin the pot, but (yeah there's always one of those)
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. here is a picture of a direct shoulder shot on a #112 boar here in Hawaii. as you can see in picture #1 it's a direct point of the should hit. and the same arrow I shot it with. There is nothing more that peeves me than people to talk about heads that #1 never have used them and probably won't because of there belief. that's fine.


As you can see the head is intact, blades are too, not bent, no curled tip, now I'm not saying the blades were perfectly straight because that's not true, but like a pritzel like I've heard some people say?...... Bull !!!
As you can see the head is in great shape, like I said it did bend the blade enough to where it wouldn't operate like it was suppose to(slip cam style) the other side would. but not blown apart blade, no pieces, change blade and go kill another hog

I'm 6'4" #270 so that tells you the size I am for hand reference, the cut is awesome, and yes cut through the side of the bone, the shield,skin and continued into the chest cavity, I almost had a pass through, now in my book, if it pokes out the other side leaving two holes it's a pass through.






This was what I found when we opened the hog up, the rage had gone all the way through and hit the lower part of the lower shoulder/leg area and that's "MY Opinion" why it didn't go through the other side.
The shot was 14 yds and the hog just backed up about 4 feet and went down, no tracking, lots of blood and a impressive first time experience with a rage 2 blade head.
On the Island of Lanai, where we deer hunt there is a lot of cross wind, wind planing is horrible, I wanted a head I could sure and have confidence in. this was a perfect test with great results.

For those who say, there are two kind of mechanicals "Ones that fail" and "Ones that will fail" use a fixed head.
I take the cut on contact blade out of the rage and sharpen it and put it back in (it's not sharp in my book) that is the only down side I can see with this head. So with that, I'm continue to use the rage head, it's proven in my book.

As far as mechanicals go the rear opening design is better than the fold backs that rob energy. I have freinds that shoot rage and swear by them. My boss shot a doe with one out of a crossbow and one blade didn't deploy because it jammed up in the lover area and the front part bent. Every thing is a trade off, the rage are easy to tune but have moving parts that can fail. Fixed blade can wind plane if not tuned properly. I shoot a longbow and if yall guys shot a real 3:1 ratio blade you would realize you could have the best of both worlds.

Here's work of a Rage 2 Blade (not the Ex-treme). I have had great success with them since I made the switch 4 years ago. Have killed over a dozen animals and have only lost 1 due to a very poor shot. Different strokes for different folks and shoot what ever you believe in or use a boomstick.

I have a couple different 3:1's. I just dont need em on my 82nd and on a whitetail. Trad equipment. Different story. Ima firm believer in a 3:1!!!

And im stayin with fixed!!!

J. I killed a couple deer with the results you posted. Then i had an explosion. That ruined me on since in the past i had hit several deer in that exact spot in the past with a fixed. About a week later i got the buck on tc. He had nasty wound right were i thought i hit em. I never got another pic. And like i said both blades were laying on the ground were he was standing.

Just my 02 but i would take a 1-3/4 Reaper with those swept back blades over a Rage anyday. Espcially when last year i saw first hand how effective the were and how much more abuse they take than a Rage. And the wound channel and blood trails are nothing short of a crime scene!!!

This is the one I re-designed. I made the top cover taller to protect the fletch, added a elastic draw gather on the bottom of the top cover to keep the arrows from rattling when I walk.
There are two additional D rings on the top cover and one on the bottom so I can move the strap to the top for a over the back quiver, or add another strap for a center of the back quiver.
The way it is in the picture it goes on the right shoulder. it hangs tight and if I need it will slide to become a side quiver for walking through heavy brush. In the bottom I have loose cell rubber foam rubber in the bottom to keep the broad heads in place.

Lmao!!! Yep!!! Never seen one. Only read about em.

Do you remember those fluted aluminum shafts??? I dont recall the name right off but i shot those for a couple of years. That about the same time I saw my first mech head. It was a Puckett's Blood Trailer. Then came the Punch Cutters. Talk about a hunk of crap!!!

They were tough, but if they bent, you just threw them away, no way to straighten them.

Gale Martin Archery invented the Dyna Bow, a single cam with recurve fiberglass limb. Martin brought one into Pauls archery in the the late 70s.
We use to shoot with Olympic archer Rick McKinney (he was a instructor at that time) working in Muncie, Indiana.
The bow was loud, hand shock was unreal and it jarred your teeth to point of giving you a headache.

Back in the days of the Jennings Super T the first bow that didn't have a hanger for the eccentrics. Oh those were the fun days.


Dagon, I suddenly feel old !!

If you really wanted to shoot a bow that had everything you wanted, hand shock, extremely heavy in the hand and sounded like an 30-06 going off, you should find a Bear Delta V and shoot it. If the arrow did not hit the animal, the noise level would knock it off it's feet so you could get off your stand and go beat it to death with the bow, it was that heavy.

Well I ended up getting some and they came in just in time for my Axis hunt last Friday June 1st. Impressed is an understatement! I am shooting 70# Diamond Iceman and right around 29 inches. I shoot the Beman ICS Hunter 340 at right under 280 fps. Not too fast by any means. But lets just say that the new Ex-treme Rage will be what I am switching over to. I'll get the pictures of the damage when I get time this weekend

This a picture of the 34" axis I shot at 12 yards. It was quartered away at about a 45 degree angle. I only got a picture of the entrance. Again this is with the new 2.3" Rage Ex-treme shot out of my Diamond Iceman with a Beman ICS Hunter 340 at 280 fps. Didn't even think to get a picture of the blood trai; but believe me this picture doesnt do justice. Wish I had something up to compare the size to.

Dang, besides being a big Axis, that is a heck of a hole in the side.
