    Default Lookin for a new mechanical broad head

    Lookin to try mechanical broadheads. I currently shoot muzzy mx-4. Had great luck with them but I want a truer shooting bh. I shoot hoyt vetrix 70lb, 27 in draw, with drop zone rest, single pin sight. 100 grain tips. fuse stabilizer. I have heard alot about rage and slick tricks. Are these the best?

    I like the rage mechanicals. I also like the spin tite mechanicals. Im not sure that slick tricks are a mechanical head. Whatever you decide on make sure that in shoots good for you.

    I have seen photos of deer that have been shot with them. I almost feel bad for the animals. The seem to be designed so that they wont kick out on a hard quartering away shot. But that is just my opinion.

    I am giving the Rage's a go this fall, they fly great too. I couldn't pass up the 2" groups these things are putting out either.

    If I were going to shoot a mechanical I think I would have to go with the two blade rage. It seems to me to be the best design out there for mechanicals. Just my opinion though.
    That course was so easy I even missed a target !!

    Rage 3 blades, Rocket Steelheads, and Bear Razorheads will be in my quiver this year. I've used Razorheads and Steelheads in the past with very good results. It will be the first time for the Rage.

    Thanks for all the info. Looks like rockets and rages are the broadhead of choice.

    I tried the rage 2 blades out last year out of my Hoyt. I am pulling about 66 lbs and have a draw length of 30 inches. I didn't get hardly an penetration when I shot deer at over 30 yards. I didn't find two of the deer I shot, I made decent shots. I have shot mechanical BHs in the past with great success. After I shot the rage I switched to the Tight Point Shuttle T-lock heads and they have yet to dissapoint. They fly like field points and I have all the confidents in the world, and that is what really matters. I hope they work good for you, they sure didn't work good for me. If you have troubles try the Tight Points, they're great heads and extremely durable.
