They open to easy for me.  I can't use them for stalks because everytime they brush a blade of grass they open.  I had one open in flight one time also, needless to say I missed.  I won't use them again.

Exchange them. I will garantee when you see a blood trail made by the rage broadhead you will never shot anything else.

I started using them three years ago.  I have shot 13 deer with them and lost 2.  My guess is the two that I lost was my fault for taking a bad shot or tipping a branch.  I did change from the three blade to the two blade after I lost one but I do not think it was the Rage.  The only thing I don't like about them is you have to double check and make sure they are closed after you nock an arrow.  They do leave a nice blood trail and I have watched several deer fall from my stand which is always nice.  I would take them back to the store that you bought them from or send them back to Rage they will give you a new pack.  Please let us know if they give you a hard time.

I shot my first deer with a bow a week ago using a 2 blade rage broadhead. My shot was a tad high (still double lunged her) and I think that's why the blood trail was thin in spots. But she only ran 70 yards so I was happy. Nice hole in the hide but when I skinned her I was wowed. I have noticed you have to be really careful with them to keep them closed. I'm thinking if I could find a slightly fatter O-ring it might help with that.

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 saw the hog and them rage broadheads did a nasty number on it I have never used them but must of my friends do and I haven't heard any compliants so far. Of course if they don't work for you God knows there are plenty of others out there.  @--0--0101

My problem with Rage is I can't keep blades closed they seem to always open at the wrong moment or not open at all.. I had friend shoot a Buck last year with a pass through shot very little blood because Bradhead never opened. I am switching to fix this year...

I shot a nice deer with a Rage three blade and watched one of the blades open in flight. Very little penatraition and never found the deer. I have never shot them again after that!

I have never had a problem with rage.  only lost one deer with them and it was my own fault.  one thing I do know about rage is that they usually don't have much of an edge on the actual point.  One thing that most don't realize is that if your not satisfied with rage send them in and they will give you your money back.

There is a Rage Broadhead for everyones set-up.  I've never had a problem with dull blades even after being shot through a deer.  I've actually used the same head on 3 deer. 

If you don't get the penetration you would like then switch the a 3 blade 1 1/2" cut and if you don't get the penetration with that switch the 1 1/2" cut 2 blade.  Its called the 40 KE, but it works just as well out of any poundage.  I've blown through every deer that I've shot with the 40 KE.  Farthest shot being 40 yards and it still went through and then another 30 yards after that.
