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.

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.

Default Trophy Ridge!!

Trophy Ridge Meat Seekers will beat the rage hands down!!! I shot a doe in the shoulder with the rage...no penetration at all. Rage has poor design on the three blades configuration also, the blades will get locked on each other on impact they won't open all the way. Rage pays far to many people too much to stand behind them. Read the reviews at cabelas.com many people say they get no penetration. Rages are great for shooting ballistic gel and thats it! In my opinion Rage is junk! The meat seekers will bust bone like a Muzzy... Meat Seekers are bad to the bone! Now they have the 2in. two blade also. Can't go wrong with them.

Get a pack of the Vortec heads I cannot believe nobody talks about them anymore. They have been out for a long time and are very durable so far for me and shoot excellent. I shot several deer with them. Get a pack and try them.

I stopped using the 3 blade design they usually have 3 very small screws holding the blades in place I shot 2 in a foam target and 2 of the blades broke.

Question Mechanical Heads

I been researching this myself lately. I have found some disappointed reports of deflection issues in the RAGE HEAD. Go to GOOGLE and Google up Rage and read for yourself. Some are liking the G5 Tekan2 head. I tried these, but they shoot several inches right at twenty yards with my set up. I have decided to stay with tried and true fixed heads. That commerical with Hank Parker with the Swacker Broadhead looks promising!!!

The rage 2 blades are nice, also the rocket stealheads are nice to. You can get the stealheads on ebay unopened for about 17 a pack.

Talking The First One?

Can Any one remember the very first Nationaly adverstsed mechanical broadhead. A hint, when Cabela's catalog only had a dozen or less heads to pick from . It appeared as the last head advertised in the archery catalog!

if you havent tried the undertakers they are worth trying, they shoot just like my field tips as do my muzzy mx4's. i have also heard great things about the meat seakers. slick tricks are good too. i'm stickin with my muzzys but i carry 2 undertakers in my quiver for those long range shots (they seem to group better at 80 yards compared to the muzzys or the slick tricks). anything under 50 yards and i will definitely have a muzzy flying at the target.
