Ever since I bought my Bow Tech Admiral I have stuck with Rage 2 broad heads and have had mixed results with them but I still think they are the best flying broad head and you cannot beat a two inch cutting ratios which actually looks like four inches when you find your animal.
When I started archery hunting (9)I used to shoot the black diamond zwickeys and even thou you used to have to sharpen them allot the did the job, they weighted a ton but back than it was allimunium arrows with feather veins, everything was heavy. God I am getting old.
I have been testing the Terminator Brodhead which is a broad head that is cc machined out of a steel block which I like for busting bone on Elk and Pigs but my bow will not shoot them right, they drop about six to eight inches. I have also been testing the Hellrazer but it acts close to the same. When I shoot my rages they are touching my field tips so I can’t ask for a better grouping.
There is an old but new broad head that is back and that is the Wackem Broadhead, It has a great cutting tip to it and the blades are replaceable. I just feel that the cutting ratios is to small, I like a broad head that will cut a big ass hole in animals to be able to track them better.
The one thing about Rages to me is that you have to learn to double lung animals, I have shot some nice deer and pigs last couple years that I shot right in the shoulder or low and even thou they bleed pretty good I lost them all. I grew up learning to shoot that inside shoulder and now with this Rages you can shoot the center of the body and blow out all that air they will go down within fifty yards.
You know how I hate losing animals Larry, Most of all when they are big 3x4 but I feel now that allot of those shots where angle issues and that is something for the future post on how to determine angles correctly when the arrow enters the body when you are fifteen to twenty feet of the ground.
Good shooting everyone and keep making all the 3-D shoots, peace.
