Anyone have any problems with rage broadheads??
« on: July 26, 2011, 11:21:32 AM »
I had purchased 2 sets of rage bhds and 1 package all 3 broadheads were never finished. I have butter knives sharper than these. Not even an edge was put on them. I'm definatly disappointed !! I have to keep a closer eye in them.I Probably will change back to muzzy!!

Those sound like practice blades as opposed to the ones you'd hunt with.  I know Rage does sell practice blades, so it sounds like you either grabbed the wrong package, or they put the wrong card in the packaging.  I'd take them back and they should exchange them with no problem.

I agree. That's exactly what it sounds like to me. I just started using them last year and didn't let one fly so I haven't even had a chance to have problems.  ##$%#1114

Definitely allow them the chance to make things right. Probably as described above.

Yes I've had problems with performance, but it wasn't related to dull blades.

I used them last year and never had any problems with performance... I killed 5 deer with them and not one ran over 50 yards,  

Until something happens, I'm not changing.


What color were the heads that you purchased?.... The practice heads are blue

I have never used them.  A guy I worked with LOVED them and he is a guy that shoots a 150" or better every year.  Last year he shot "At a MONSTER" but the blade was loose and opened up (he thinks) cause he said the arrow was wobbling all over the place.  I was not there but I do know that he switched away from them and is now using Grim Reaper.  He killed several deer with the Rage and when they work they are amazing but if it fails you on a big deer then it doesn't much matter what they did in the past.  I myself still prefer the fixed head but everyone is different.

Didn't care for 'em.  Won't stay closed, open in flight, not durable at all, and if you're not pullin' 70 lbs., forget it.

I have been using them for about 4 seasons now . Never had a problem with the blade deploying too soon and have gotten pass throughs with the 2 blade Rage heads . Pass throughs with 60# pull .

I have taken 3 deer and a hog with the rage broadheads. None of them ran over 30 yards. Two of the deer and the hog were all taken with a 60 lbs bow. The last deer was with a 70 lbs bow. All the deer taken were complete pass through with shot ranges from 8 to 30 yards. On the hog, I caught him in the spine, and he dropped right there. I shot him a second time, and got a pass through and he went down quickly.

I'm afraid to use mechanicals...being so very far from perfect.... I've pulled shots forward and shot threw shoulders....I'm pretty sure from what I've read....#50 and now I'm at #49 they wouldn't go in far....I'll stick to my fixed chiseled point blades
