Default 1st test with Rage Expandable

I've been a Muzzy fixed blade guy for 20+ years, but I have NEVER been able to get them to fly and hit the same as my field points. So, i'm trying the dark side. 1st test is a Rage Hypodermic, 100gr, 2" cut. Worked well on this doe. A few hogs will be the ultimate test in my mind, but so far so good. All my hunts are self filmed.

She was dead when you pointed the rage at her, she just didn't know it yet! Lol Nice shot. I have mixed feelings about them, but still have faith in em.

I shot a doe a few years back in the heart with Grim Reaper Whitetail's and she made it maybe 15 yards.

Shot a 160lb boat the other night with a Rage. Went 40ish yards. Right through the front of the dreaded shield and through both lungs. They had some rough spots in the beginning but they have got the design down well.

1. She went 40 yards and piled up on a "dead run", I could see her the whole way.
2. Good to hear others have had good experiences with Rage. I'm gonna keep letting them fly for a while.
3. Really good to hear about the 160 lb boar. The shields on the bigger boars are tough and thick. I killed a pig on Saturday with a rifle from the camp house at 200 yds out. 200 lbs and the shield was nearly 2" thick.

I'll post more reports as I complete them.

Welcome to the to ‘dark side’. I’ve been rage only for about 5 years now. Haven’t lost an animal yet and I made a couple bad shots. I do love the fact that they fly true as my field points. I’ll neber look back for sure. I shot a small buck this past wkend straight in the chest and took out the heart and both lungs. 25 yards and was toast. Don’t be afraid to shout them. Try out the rage extreme. Blood trails will bow you away.

Update on the mechanical broadhead testing. So far, so good. Two deer, two hogs. All recovered. The penetration on the hog shields is not as deep as my fixed blades, but still an acceptable blood trail from the entry wounds. Both deer had pass throughs, both hogs the broad head was stuck in the far side bone (either rib or shoulder). The testing will continue. Sorry for the grainy video, but it was getting pretty dark.

I have shot Muzzy since I started bow hunting and have always had good success.

One of the guys on our lease shot his 1st buck this year with a Rage Hypodermic, 100gr, 2" cut and the entrance and exit were very impressive. Buck only ran 30 yards.

I may have to give them a try.

If your bow is tuned, and the arrow/broadhead is straight, the muzzy will hit **** close to the field points. I just picked up a bow, haven't shot for 15 years, and the guy that set it up shot perfect bullet holes through paper while I still torqued it a bit. I bought a 6 pack of Muzzies and am putting them in a 3 inch group at 30 yards with my other field points. It's a tuning / form issue. That said I am interested in trying the Rage as well, but I'd still want to confirm that my bow was shooting fixed blades i.e my bow and my form is good.
