Havenít seen a thread on this yet...... rage nc

2Ē cut .35 blades and no collars to mess with anymore. Iím really liking the idea of no collars, it will make things a lot simpler

Haven't ever used a mechanical before. Question for those that use them. How do the hold up on pigs? I use G5's and like the fact that I can resharpen and reuse them. Recently I've been thinking about swithing.

I’m curious as to how the will hold up after passing through an animal and possibly embedding in the dirt.

Depends. Iíve had some get all messed up including the ferrule, and then some that have zero damage. usually come out just fine, but most times a blade will bend. They are easy to swap blades so it doesnít bother me when they bend. The bigger cut heads like the rage extremes tend to bend/break blades easier

Figured it would be one and done, thats fine as long as it gets thru the shoulder and gets in the boiler room. Like the idea of a bigger hole.

Thanks for the info

I shot 5 arrows with rage ends. 5 rage ends trashed and not able to be reused.
These are made to be consumable.

Iíve shot 5 or so animals with rage and then twice that with Chinese rage. They all (but maybe one or two) come out looking either real bad or blades bent past the point of fixing. Thatís why I buy the Chinese ones off amazon for pigs. Gets the job done and theyíre cheap.

I like the older 2.3 inch rage. The shorter ones don’t leave the same blood trails. Only issue is getting a pass through on a longer shot.

This hypo didn't pass through a pig, but grazed him and embedded in a log. I had to whittle it out with a machete. Just a couple nicks in the blades that sharpen out.

I think what you are seeing is a Easton bar (broadbead adapter ring) with some meat on it

I'm a Rage fan, but if your just shooting pigs you're shooting the right head. I have Montecs in my quiver for pigs an coons, but I shoot deer with Rages.
