    Congrats on the rage kill. They always work on the does. Its that one time when the biggest buck of your life is standing in front of you and you watch your arrow bounce off the shoulder.
    I dont think anyone disagrees that they dont cut a nice hole in perfect conditions. But for every post like this , there are 3 more threads "need help tracking"
    That did cut a nice hole

    Actually took down a 8pt last year with same Rage Titanium head, but with a poor gut shot. Post is in this zone 13 forum. Deer died in less than 90 min and the hole was so big there were small intestines hanging out both sides. It was a tough track in the rain. I have complete confidence in these heads to do the job good hit or not. Thanks and appreciate the feedback! I did buy the Rage Hyperdermics as a potential replacement for my Titaniums. I like the idea of only having to change 2 blades vs 3 after every kill and I do think the chisel tip would probably do better against a shoulder hit vs. the leading blade edge.

    My 8 point last year dressed out at 179 lbs. He made it 15 yards , dropped and that was it. Knocked heart caught a lung and out the other side and about 6 inches into the ground. 100 grain rage 40ke's . I don't know why people hate on rages so much. I've never had a deer not die within sight. Haters gonna hate!
    You can do a lot more for the environment by carrying a rifle then carrying a sign.

    Haters gonna hate!
    I do a lot of hunting in the midwest and Canada with different outfitters. MOST of them will not allow you to shoot Rages OR any other type of mechanicals and they do it for a reason.
    Theyre haters. They hate tracking their trophy bucks stuck with these heads ,screwing up the hunting areas and not finding them. Then the client wants to climb back in the tree and shoot another one. I found over the years hunting, if I find a problem, I fix it. I cant afford to have equipment fail me in the moment of truth. I spend lots of money on hunting and I release an arrow on an animal, I want a head that I have complete confidence that its going to do its job. I shot Rages for a couple years and seen first hand what these heads are capable of and what they are not.. The loss of penetration on these heads is unbelievable if you hit anything solid. I dont hate the head, unfortunately I dont have any confidence in the head as many others have also experienced. Sooner or later, the head will fail you. Unfortunately and animal will be paying the price while you climb back into your stand and fling another one.
    Congrats on the kills with them, but dont ignore the consequences of using these heads and keep beating your chest because you killed a deer with one.
